The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona:

In the late-1960’s, the ‘Daytona’, having earnt its unofficial title courtesy of the Ferrari 1-2-3 domination at the 1967 Daytona 24 Hours, was the must-have grand tourer. It featured a Columbo-designed 4.4 litre V12, quad-cam, dry sump, 6 Webber carburetted engine with over 350 bhp, mated to a smooth 5-speed manual transmission, allowing the enthusiastic Ferrari owner to power from 0-60 mph is an astonishing 5.4 seconds!

The Daytona was not only admired by the automotive world, it also featured in the 1970’s Miami Vice TV series, celebrities including Elton John owned examples, it was the first Ferrari to really achieve cultural fame. But for us, our favourite piece of history associated with the Ferrari Daytona is from November 1971 when Brock Yates and Dan Gurney set a new record for cross-country vehicular travel in the USA. The pair drove a blue 365 GTB/4 from New York City to Redondo Beach in California in a record of 35 hours and 54 minutes, a colossal 53 minutes faster than the second-place finisher!

The ultimate variant of the Daytona are the early European-specification cars which featured a plexi-glass cover over the headlights, later being replaced by the pop-up units as a result of US legislation. As is common with the earliest version of many cars from this era, they are considered the purest, with development only leading to additional add-ons. The ‘Plexi’ cars also feature a different interior to the later cars, with no headrests on the seats and a beautiful wood-rimmed steering wheel which harks back to the elegant 275 GTB/4.

 

This Ferrari 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’:

Assembled at the Ferrari factory in July 1970, this Ferrari Daytona was delivered new to first owner Mr G.E.Tuzzato in Johannesburg, finished in the beautiful Blu Sera with Pelle Beige combination we see today. The car was registered in South Africa with license plate ‘CNJ 505 T’ before being bought by its second owner, Mr Marco Garbero, also a resident between South Africa and Turin, for 165,000 Rand. Two years later, in 1989, Mr Garbero exported the car to his native Italy aboard the Andromeda Star.

Once in Italy the car entered storage, seldom being driven, and today displaying only 51,000 kms, which is believed to be original. After being serviced by Official Ferrari service centre, Forza Service in Turin, during 2003, 13689 was returned to long-term storage at the same facility. Mileage was noted as 50,335 kms at this time.

The car then sat in storage, covering less than 700 kms in 15 years, until September 2017, at which time it was serviced by Official Ferrari dealer and Classiche Centre, Rosso Corsa in Turin. Works included a full engine service, replacement of the exhaust muffler/tail pipes, carburettor rebuild along with a new fuel pump and tyres. It was at this time that we bought the car and commissioned a cosmetic overhaul, whilst also beginning the application for Ferrari Classiche Certification. It has been confirmed that this car retains its original chassis, engine, transaxle and body.

We chose to re-paint the car, with Daniele Turrisi of Bergamo, Italy, ensuring the finish and colour of paint is entirely accurate. Turrisi is well-known in the classic car world for his extremely high quality of workmanship and paint finish. At the same time, we decided to retrim the leather interior, sourcing the material from Henk Van Lith (HVL Leather) in The Netherlands, who is considered one of, if not the leading leather supplier for classic Ferrari’s. This material was sent to La Perfetta in Padova, Italy, who retrimmed the car, retaining the original dashboard and carpets. Additionally, we chose to have the wheels repainted and re-chrome the bumpers and wheel spinners and surrounds, really enhancing the visual appearance of this stunning car. Most recently, in January 208, this car was delivered to Rosso Corsa in Milan for fitment of a new clutch, ensuring peace of mind motoring for the next lucky owner.

The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’ is one of the greatest touring cars to leave the hallowed gates within Maranello. The 4.4 litre, double overhead cam V12 Ferrari engine has an abundance of torque, allowing driver and passenger to enjoy either a relaxing journey along the French Riviera, or a blast through the Swiss Alps.

This two-owner example, fresh from a full service, retaining all its major original mechanical components is ready to hit the highway, will you be behind the wheel?
