An Original (Perfect) Daytona (

1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 s/n 16787 photo
We are pleased to offer 1973 USA Model Ferrari 365 GTB/4 s/n 16787, a very late high chassis number USA car. Finished in excellent older Rosso Corsa paint with black leather seats, black leather inserts, new door panels in black leather and red carpets. Well documented ownership history from new. Just completed a full engine rebuild and gearbox overhaul by Rod Drew's F.A.I., Costa Mesa, CA. All six cam and cam-drive gears re-made to eliminate the usual excess cam noise from most Daytonas. Fitted with state-of-the-art modern lightweight higher compression pistons and rings and modern cam profiles at a cost of $51,213.79.

Also fitted with stainless steel Euro type headers and exhaust for more power than a Euro Daytona. Idles at 800 rpm and pulls like a freight train. Just rebuilt transaxle with new syncros and input shaft. Runs better than new, idles great, no cam gear or valve train noise and pulls very strongly to redline. Near perfect new syncros that go into 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear cold without a problem! Sits on very sharp Cromodora mag wheels with correct and excellent 215/70 X 15 Michelin XWX tires and a Michelin XWX spare. Nice body and panel fit. All the exterior chrome and stainless trim is in very good original condition. All window glass is excellent. Nice mouse-fur on the dash.

New leather on the steering wheel. Door jams and sill plates are clean and tidy. The engine compartment is nicely detailed, the hood struts work perfectly and the original hood pad is in excellent condition. Absolutely mechanically superb with everything working as it should. Dual (front and rear) A/C that really works. A very pretty and mechanically superb Ferrari. A stock Daytona is "The Gold Standard" of the Enzo-era street Ferraris and s/n 16787 is faster, better sorted, has more power and less engine noise than when new! We welcome any mechanical inspection as we do not believe there is a Daytona that can compare in today's market. Fly in for a personal inspection or a pre-purchase inspection by the shop of your choice. All invoices on file, email us for PDFs.
