Posted: 06 Jul 2007
I am selling this 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona, one of 1273 ever produced, for the widow of a deceased friend. Sports Car Market magazine identifies the 365 GTB/4 Daytona as the ultimate front-engined Ferrari V-12. I am not a Ferrari expert and therefore asked a well know Ferrari Club of America judge who has been asked to judge vintage Ferraris at this years August Concorso Italiano event in Monterey California to inspect this car for his professional opinion. While this is a nice Ferrari Daytona, it like most others, is not a concors or Pebble Beach quality car.
Although I have no documentation to support the accuracy, the mileage indicated on the odometer is 9391 and my expert states this may very well be correct. This Ferrari starts instantly and, I am told, sounds as a 12 cylinder 1972 Daytona should sound. The clutch, transmission and differential seem to function properly. I am told that the rubber bushings in the suspension are dry rotted, which is typical and expected on Ferraris of this vintage; they should be replaced if the new owner desires to drive this Ferrari with any regularity. Based on visual inspection, as well as a brochure in the glove compartment, this Ferrari has what appears to be a virtually new ANSA FE 1037 exhaust system which I am told is a real plus.
The Borrani wire knock off wheels, as well as the mounted Pirelli P4000 tires, are like new. First right of refusal will be given to the winning bidder of this Ferrari for a nice set of four original factory alloy 7.5 inch wheels at a fraction of their retail value.
It does not appear that this Ferrari was ever involved in any type of a serious collision. It has had an exterior repaint which, I am also told, is common on these cars, leaving the door jambs and lock pillars etc. with the original paint in tact. There are no signs of frame or major body panel damage or repair. The hood, fender, door, quarter panel and deck lid fit is excellent. The hood, doors, deck lid and latches operate nicely. Oh, by the way, the power windows, headlamps and power antenna function which, I have been told, is not always the case on these cars. As visible in one of the photographs, the windshield has multiple small round delamination marks and in my opinion will require replacement. The A/C unit operates but is not very cold. Based on the air bubbles in the sight glass, it is probable that a recharge will do the trick.
There is a tool kit in the boot and a dog eared owners manual in the glove compartment. You will need to determine how complete the tool kit is. Please don’t ask…. she will not sell the tool kit separately as several people have already asked. The jack appears to have never been used, however the knock off hammer has.
The interior is nicely preserved with no rips, tears or split seams. The headliner is exceptional and the hood insulator is also free of any rips or tears as well.
