1972 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder

Argento Metallizzato with nero interior colour

As an homage to the Scuderia’s 1-2-3 sweep at the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona, the newly announced 365 GTB/4 would be nicknamed, Daytona, which would carry through to the eventual GTS/4 spyder. Fitted with a Colombo 4.4 litre V12 front engine with 6 Weber carburetors and mated to a 5 speed gated transmission, just 121 examples would be produced by the Factory. As has been the Ferrari custom, the now iconic coachwork was penned by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti.

This Argento Metallizzato example, Serial Number 14779, was sold new to the USA Ferrari importer, Luigi Chinetti Motors, then of New York City, and then onward to Carl A. Haas Automobile Imports, who still today is an important name in motor racing. Hollywood movie director, Sidney Pollack, would own the Daytona Spyder in the 1970s and then the Spyder would go on to be owned and concours shown throughout the decades by several noted USA collectors, all the while accumulating so few original miles and being lavished with regular sorting and restorative work.

Outfitted from new with air conditioning and power windows, Borrani wire wheels with knock-off hubs, the 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder of course wears its signature Daytona seats and pop-up headlights. A proper period Becker Mexico is installed as well as being accompanied by a tool roll, owner’s manuals and leather wallet. Daytona Spyder 14779 is fully documented by noted Swiss Ferrari historian, Marcel Massini, and today presents in exceptional condition throughout.

Copley Motorcars was established by Stu Carpenter in 1995. Working for other luxury and sportscar dealers in Boston since 1986, Stu has gained a longterm-experience in offering exceptional products at a fair price making the acquisition of a classic and luxury car as easy and as enjoyable as possible. The team at Copley Motorcars has a particular affinity for vintage Mercedes Benz, Ferrari and Land Rover Defender but also other blue chips such as 289 Cobra, BMW Z8 and Porsche 959. Since the market for these cars is a worldwide one, Copley Motorcars ships worldwide and can easily assist with the logistical arrangements. December 2019 marked Copley’s 24th year of buying and selling sports and classics. Their showroom is located in the center of Needham, about 15 miles west of the City of Boston. Copley has an interesting, some would say eclectic, mix of classic cars always on offer and find something to love about each and every one. And because Copley Motorcars is a smallish “boutique” type dealer, their classic cars don’t necessarily run out the door. A new arrival could be there for a day, a week or even six months. That said, all of their classics are different one to the next and are being looked at throughout the USA and the world. If you see a car you like and want to buy it, please contact copleycars@gmail.com. If you see a car and want to think about it, terrific too. But please, please, please assume that someone else is looking at the very same classic you are interested in so, if it gets sold, they do their very best to find another for you.
