Description:

Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale August 15th-17th at Russo and Steele''s 13th Annual Monterey, California Auction. Please contact us for more information.Monterey 20131972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder ConversionChassis no. 15689Regarded by many as the ultimate expression of the front-engine V-12 Ferrari GT concept, the 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’ is an instantly recognizable automotive icon. Costing some $19,500 when new and confirmed in tests as the world’s fastest production sports car upon introduction with its factory-claimed 174 mph top end, the 4-cam, 4.4-liter ‘Daytona’ V-12 cranked out 352 horsepower, lending authority to the car’s velocity.The Daytona debuted at the Paris Salon in 1968, and almost immediately, the era’s top film and rock stars clamored for one of their own. And rightly so, as Le Mans winner for Ferrari and respected auto journalist Paul Frere stated, “If you go faster, it’s the engine that makes the music, the finest music of all to the ears of the enthusiast and the music he can enjoy in a well-sprung car, fitted with such amenities as electric window lifters, air conditioning and a really capacious luggage locker – a Grand Touring car par excellence.” While intended purely as a road car, the 365 GTB/4 enjoyed a highly successful racing career with victories in the Tour de France and two class wins at Le Mans and Daytona, plus second in class at Daytona in 1979 - over 10 years after introduction!A limited run of 121 original 365 GTB/4 convertible “Spyders” were factory-built by Ferrari. With their achingly beautiful bodylines, demand predictably continues to outstrip available supplies today, spurring demand for expert conversions of the basic 365 GTB/4 to glamorous open Spyder form. This outstanding example, S/N 15689, was built in July 1972 as an original European-specification model. As confirmed by respected Ferrari marque historian Marcel Massini, it was rebodied with a full–alloy–body Spyder conversion by Carrozzeria Auto Sport of Modena, Italy. It is further understood from other sources to be one of only two such conversions performed by that well-known firm. To Ferrari cognoscenti, Carrozzeria Auto Sport was founded in 1972 by Franco Bacchelli, who began his career during the late 1950s at Piero Drogo’s Carrozeria Sports Cars in Modena, and Roberto Villa, an aluminum-forming expert from Carrozzeria Scaglietti. In short, to say that experts performed the full-alloy Spyder conversion of 15689 would be a massive understatement!As offered, 15689 delivers an exceptional ownership experience to match its wonderful open-air panache. Fitted with factory power steering from a 365 GTC/4, it is also particularly easy to drive with a desirably light steering feel. It is accompanied by over 35 years of detailed ownership history since importation to the USA in 1977, including expert mechanical maintenance without regard to cost. A highly-desirable six-carburetor model, the ‘Daytona’ is further equipped with Borrani 8- and 9-inch wire wheels with Michelin XWX tires and complete with a very nice reproduction owner’s pouch with owner’s handbook, plus an original tool roll including some original tools and some reproduction tools. Running, driving, and handling well and delivering all the power this highly coveted Ferrari is known for, 15689 is a very well-sorted and highly attractive Daytona with a renowned Italian coachbuilding firm’s expert touch with a very nice all-alloy body, good older paint, excellent mechanicals, and user–friendly power steering!
