1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona
Known as the Daytona after Ferrari took 1,2 & 3 in 1967 race, the Pininfarina designed 365 GTB/4 once more wowed the press at its Paris Salon launch in 1968. Its sonorous V12 engine and short tail styling made the car driveable and desirable in one.
Only 1,300 Daytonas were produced, of which as few as 158 were UK RHD cars. Furthermore this car is one of only six UK cars produced in this colour scheme….making it a rare Prancing Horse. Maranello Concessionaires fitted the extra boot badge and side lights at delivery.
Originally ordered for Mr Stewart of Glasgow, this lovely example was then owned for over 30 years by Mike Sandford, connected to the Maserati importers at the time, and driven sparingly until Iain Tyrrell bought it for the first time with 19,000 miles. At CCC it is truly an 'old friend' as we sold this car in 2005, 2006 and then 2012. After returning it to Blu Chiaro Metallizzato and a mechanical overhaul, including fitment of discreet switchable electric power steering, it was driven in the exclusive Italia Classica event in Italy by the previous owner.
Complete with Ferrari Classiche Red Book, original leather wallet and service books, tool roll, factory order correspondence and huge history file with every MOT, together with numerous copy invoices including a replacement exhaust system in 2012 and recent service in January 2016 at specialists Bob Houghton.
A rare opportunity to purchase such a low mileage/low owner RHD Daytona in superb condition throughout.
