1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 `Daytona`

s/n 15241

Red with Black Leather and Red Carpets

 

As the last of the classic front-engined V12 flagship Ferraris, the 365GTB/4 needs little introduction. It is quite simply one of the most evocative, beautiful, aggressive, and collectible Ferraris that captures the essence of the classic Ferrari experience.

 

Built for the European market this Daytona was factory equipped with A/C, power windows, and the `Typo A` high performance engine. The Euro production Daytonas were fitted with different exhaust manifold which makes approximately 15 more horsepower than the US model cars. It has recently been restored to Competition specifications.

 

The restoration work was carried out by Jorge Sica, and mechanical work completed by Martucci. This process included repainting the car and finishing all body modifications in steel. The brakes were rebuilt as necessary, new tires fitted, and an oversized aluminum fuel tank installed with special pumps. The carburetors and starter were both rebuilt. New headlights were fitted, as were oversized wheels, tires, and new shock absorbers. A new rally-style dash was installed. All the original items removed from the car at the time of the conversion accompany it in the sale.

 

The engine bay is fully detailed and is on par with a show car. The inner fender wells have been smoothed and repainted, and the black crackle has been refinished on the heat shields, cam covers, and air cleaner housing, and is beautiful. The trunk is beautiful, in keeping with the balance of the car.

 

Mechanically, this is a very well sorted example. While all Daytonas are powerful, the engine in this car may have been tastefully modified to produce even more horse power than stock- especially above 5,000 rpm. A slightly larger stainless steel exhaust system has been fitted which amplifies- in a more than tolerable way- that V12 Ferrari exhaust note we all know and love. The transaxle is smooth and crisp in and out of each gate with a fantastic second gear syncro both when warm and cold. After extensive research, Performance Friction carbon brake pads were fitted which actually make it possible to lock all four wheels under heavy braking- typically an impossibility on Daytonas! All gauges are fully operational, and the A/C system blows frigid cold. Currently this car shows 39,496 KMS, and while there are virtually no records accompanying the car, the fresh, tight feel and outstanding cosmetic condition could support this as actual mileage.

 

With this car comes an original manual with manual the leather holder, one piece spare wheel with tire, the jack and jack bag, emergency triangle, knock-off hammer and lug wrench. There are virtually no records with this car, so we suggest that interested parties have a stringent pre- purchase inspection performed to confirm our findings. Few other Ferraris have enjoyed the dramatic appreciation that Daytonas have over the last two years.
