365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider

Fly Yellow with Tan leather interior, Tan carpeting and Black convertible top, Restored, Documented by Massini, Original Plexi-Nose European delivery 365 GTB/4 Daytona, Factory air conditioning.

This 365 GTB/4 was completed at the factory on June 19, 1970 and delivered to Italian Ferrari dealer Motor S.a.s., in Bologna. Its original color combination was Rosso Rubino with Tan leather interior. Shortly thereafter it was sold to its first owner, Mr. Pederzoli as resident of Bologna, Italy.

During the mid-1970s this Daytona was imported to the U.S.A. In 1979 it was converted to a Spyder by Classic Coachworks of Torrance, California and repainted in Ferrari Rosso Corsa. In 1983 it was sold by Sam Black Motors, Los Angeles, California to Mr. Fred Chase of Beverly Hills, California. In December of 1986 it was sold by Mr. Fred Chase to Mr. Michael Sheehan, European Auto Restoration, Costa Mesa, California. In September 1986, now Black with Tan leather interior, this Daytona was sold by European Auto Restoration to Mr. Jake Weaver of Jackson, Mississippi.

In 1990, this Daytona was sold to a prominent Japanese collector and thus exported from the U.S.A. to Japan. Circa 2000-2001, this Daytona was sold to another Japanese Ferrari collector. This gentleman decided to restore the Daytona to its current color combination of Fly Yellow with Tan leather interior and Black convertible top, thus making it an exact copy of the original prototype Ferrari Daytona Spyder (chassis # 12851) and the only original Daytona Spyder fitted with a Plexi-Nose from the factory, all other factory Daytona Spyders had the later style USA type pop up headlamps.

In July 2013, this Daytona was re-imported to the U.S.A. and sold to a well-known Connecticut collector. Today, this Daytona presents itself in exceptional restored condition.

This Daytona has been serviced properly and drives as a Daytona should. An exceptional Daytona Spyder conversion, it presents quite a value in todays market as compared to one of the original 121 factory Spyders that are fetching $2-million dollars plus in todays market.
