Description:

1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona is shown in its original factory color combination of Rosso Chiaro/Nero Leather, 38,923 miles, Becker Radio, Factory A/C and Power Windows, all documented by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini. This original U.S. specification Daytona was completed at the factory on July 17, 1972, and delivered to its first owner through Luigi Chinetti Motors, Greenwich, CT. With only 32,000 miles by 1991, this Daytona was advertised in Bridgehampton, NY and was acquired by well-known Ferrari collector from Westchester, NY. In October of 1999, ownership transferred to a new owner in Amagansett, NY. In 2015, the car was sold to its current collector/owner. Once in current owner Ferrari first pulled the cover off the new 365 GTB/4 Berlinetta at the Paris Salon in 1968 to great acclaim. Equipped with an all-new 4.4-liter V-12 engine that was capable of producing 352 horsepower and 315 foot-pounds of torque at 7,500 rpm, the 365 GTB/4 was capable of a top speed of 174 mph, making it the fastest production car the world had ever seen. After its introduction, the car quickly gained the unofficial nickname ''Daytona'' from Ferrari's incredible 1-2-3 finish at the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona the year before. In terms of styling, the Daytona was a drastic step forward from the 275 GTB/4. Gone were the voluptuous curves of the car's Pininfarina design for Ferrari in the 1950s and 1960s. Leonardo Fioravanti's design for the Daytona was much more angular and aggressive than the car it replaced, yet it still resonated with Ferrari's existing customers and proved to be an instant hit. #15229 is offered properly with complete original Tool Roll, Knock off hammer, Factory Jack, as well as complete factory owner's manuals, Classiche eligible and a welcomed candidate for Concours and FCA events, well sorted and ready to drive.
