Our Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder has an exceptional history having been in California its entire life with just two loving owners. The first owner, a resident of North Hollywood purchased the Daytona on 31st July 1971, its second owner bought the car in Los Angeles on the 10th November 1972 with just 2,800 miles on the clock. He kept the car until his death at which point is son inherited it. In 2014, he sold the car after Finishing Touch in Arizona did a complete re-spray, fitted a new exhaust system and carried out a mechanical service.
In 1980, the car was converted to a Spyder by Richard Straman, known for his high-quality conversion and changed it from its original colour scheme of Dark Red with Red interior to its current beautiful combination of Nero with Tan hide.
The Daytona Spyder is complete with books, original warranty card, tools and many photos of the of the car, before, during and after its conversion. The coachwork is impressively straight, displaying the correct gaps and the Nero paintwork is excellent overall, it is truly stunning.
