The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 marked an end of an era – the last of the legendary front engine V-12 grand tourers that stretched all the way back to the Ferrari 250 GTs in the 1950s. The 365 GTB/4 received its nickname “Daytona” in honor of Ferrari’s one-two-three finish at the 1967 Daytona 24 Hours race. The Daytona features a 4,390 cc Tipo 251 “Colombo” V-12 with 352 horsepower at 7,500 rpm.

We’re pleased to offer this gorgeous and recently restored Daytona Berlinetta, finished in Blu Dino over Vintage Tan. Chassis 15229 was the 721st example built, delivered new to its owner – Willy Valentini of Cosenza in 1972. In 1976, the Daytona found its way to the U.S. where it was acquired by a cardiologist, Dr. Elias Saadi of Youngstown, Ohio. Dr. Elias owned the Daytona for over two decades and within his ownership had it painted in Rosso Chiaro. After Dr. Elias sold the car in 1999, it passed between several owners in Texas and California. In 2012, the Daytona underwent an extensive, $40,000 engine and transmission rebuild following a rear suspension rebuild and Ansa muffler installation. Several years later, in 2018, the Daytona was sent to GTO Engineering in Los Angeles for an upgraded electric steering kit. The following year, in 2019, the Daytona would be extensively restored, traveling between GTO Engineering in LA and the UK for a complete engine and mechanical rebuild, and body paint and interior restoration.

This Daytona is a true one-of-a-kind. Its striking blue paint, Chromodora alloy wheels, and chrome trim shine. Inside, the newly upholstered tan leather completes the look – a perfect specification one might say.
