In 2014, this Daytona was delivered to Autosport Designs, Inc. We were asked to perform a concours quality restoration. The Daytona was stripped, no stone was left unturned, any and all metal work needed was performed to ensure the best fitment and gaps for the body/panels. All work has been photo documented. We were asked to go through the car and service as needed, where needed. It was excellent mechanical and structural condition with approximately 1,000 miles since the engine was rebuilt. It did however need various servicing strictly from lack of use.

This rare Plexi-Nose Daytona is one of the finest examples of its kind. No expense has been spared to make this Daytona Coupe absolutely superb in every way. It is complete with books, tools, factory jack, records, detailed ownership history. Having driven this Daytona on several occasions, I (Tom Papadopoulos) can attest to its not only being beautiful and detailed in every way, but also excellent mechanically and with superb road manners.
