Comments:

The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona we are proud to offer has been originally

delivered in the USA. As new the Daytona Coupe was supplied in a rare livery

of Grigio Ferro with a Nero/Black interior. Factory paperwork is showing that only

a mere number of only 21 cars have been produced at the factory in the same

elegant colour.


The car was built for the US market and was so equipped with air-conditioning,

power windows and of course an odometer in miles. Completed at the factory on

May 29. 1972 within the month the car was delivered to Chinetti Motors of

Pennsylvania.


By June 1975 the car was for sale with Randy Smith of High Point, North Carolina

and passed through dealers FAF Motorcars of Tucker, Georgia to Spencer Folsom

of nearby Pine Mountain. From Folsom the car passed to C.Lynn Abel of Atlanta.

Abel advertised the car that summer in the Ferrari Club of America newsletter

where it appears to have been described as supplied new, still with grey/black

livery. It had covered 29,000 miles according to the ad.Within the next two years

the car crossed the country to spend most of the next three decades on the west

coast. Advertised by Ferrari of Los Gatos, California in May and June 1978, by

this point it had gained the wire wheels it still currently wears. In the late 1980s

the car underwent a thorough restoration, which saw the paint scheme change to

the Giallo Fly that it has worn to this day.


The car changed hands in 1989, sold to noted collector Tom Price, owner of the

most coveted of all Ferraris: a 250 GTO. Properly maintained in his ownership,

the Ferrari remained there until 2005, when it spent a little over a year in the

next owners custody before being acquired by the Oldenburg Family just after

Pebble Beach week. Over the course of the last 8 or so years, the Daytona has

been thoroughly, all the while being maintained in house. The benefit of its

simple and known chain of owners is that its modest 47,000 mile odometer

reading is almost certainly from new, something few cars of similarity can attest

to. The low and original mileage is as well certified by the wonderful

preserved condition of its interior still having the original mouse hair dashboard,

leather driving seats, headliner and door side panels. It looks and smells like a

wonderful and original Daytona. With the striking original livery, known history

and desirable specification this is a great example of the legendary Daytona.


A recent test drive has shown an extremely powerful engine, wonderful  shifting

gears without any vibration coming from the drivetrain. It runs and drives in a

way that it perfectly fulfills our expectations towards such an original Daytona

with a relatively low mileage.
