1972 FERRARI DAYTONA Spyder - £POA POA
This example has covered a mere 8,500 miles from new. The original matching-numbers engine has been fully maintained by Daytona specialists over the years. Due to the fact that it is still essentially a factory-fresh Ferrari-built but run in motor, it unleashes its power with the particular ease that made the Daytona the legend it is. Driving this example, it is easy to believe it was the fastest production car on the planet for many years.
The car has never been neglected and had to be brought back to pristine condition as many cars have; it has remained a prize possession continually during its 46-year life. It has been the subject of considerable recent work to keep it amongst the best presented and driving imaginable. This includes a colour change back to Blu Dino Metallizato (its original colour when new) and interior re-trim to exacting standards using the correct Connolly hides, both carried out by ourselves four years ago. Electric power steering was fitted at the same time. Mechanical works recently carried out include full suspension restoration, new clutch and servicing by marque specialists. Fitted with optional Borrani wheels with the original wheels also included.
Only 121 Spyders were produced by the factory, leading to a number of specialists offering conversions to coupe owners. Chassis number 15951 was converted in 1978 by Richard Straman Coachworks in California. Richard Straman was renowned for the exceptional quality of his work, and this example was completed to a very high standard. The overall excellence of the metalwork on the body was evidenced when we repainted the car in 2013 (photos on file).
A stunning car that is ready to enjoy.
