A magnificent 1967 Ferrari 365/4 Daytona Spider by Scaglietti with exceptional provenance is an undoubted star amongst the 182 classics offered for sale at Historics 10th Anniversary live auction on Saturday, 18th July
This exceptional collector car, chassis 11929 was the fourth of six registered prototypes produced by Ferrari and was the company’s Paris Motor Show launch car in 1968 when the Daytona model was unveiled. Adding to its provenance is the fact that It was manufactured as a GTB/4 - the first Daytona built by Carrozzeria Scaglietti - and was converted to Spider configuration in 1970/71 by Scaglietti.
Aside from its exceptional provenance, a further feature of this stunning Ferrari is most notably its chassis which, as a prototype, was constructed on a 275 GTB/4; the only other comparable car being chassis number 11795 which is preserved in a private collector in California who has the reputation of owning some of the rarest and most valuable cars in the world.
This Ferrari has often been dubbed ‘the lost prototype’ given its conversion to a Spider configuration, and undeniably, it is a very important piece of Ferrari history.
Presenting today in stunning condition and finished in Ferrari’s traditional colour combination of Rosso Corsa with Tan interior and has a recorded mileage of under 29,000 kms.
