Voted by Motor Trend Classic as one of the top ten Ferraris of all time and Top Sports Car of the 1970s by Sports Car International, the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 is an icon. Along with these accolades, the Daytona gained a prominent role across a vast swath of popular culture, from Brock Yates' Cannonball Run to the cover of The Carpenters' album "Now and Then." A little under 1,300 Daytona hardtops were ever produced, as opposed to only 127 examples of the open top Spider. When a good one comes up for sale, collectors take notice. This example for sale in California comes from a private collection and looks to be well preserved rather than over restored.
1972 Ferrari 365 GTB Daytona. Rare classic, collector quality, excellent car inside & out. Just acquired from a private collection, this 1972 Daytona is an outstanding example and one of the finest we have had in years. This exceptional car, with a well documented history, looks great and, runs and drives like a classic Daytona. The Daytona is sought after by collector's worldwide as experts believe the Daytona will continue to increase in value. To own an example of the Daytona like this one is a rare opportunity. Vehicle options include power windows and air conditioning. Car also has coveted tool set and, a car cover.
One glaring omission with this ad is the mileage. I wouldn't suspect this car has been abused, as it looks to be in good nick. The asking price of just under $370,000 is about in line with current market values for Daytonas. In classic Rosso Corsa, this motor would look equally at home on the American interstate as it would bombing down a coastal route on the French Riviera.
