A Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona that has not been on the road since 1974 is to be offered for sale. Chassis number 14273 is a right-hand drive, UK market example with pop-up headlights, originally collected from the Ferrari factory in May 1971. In 1974, the car was involved in an accident, and in rescuing the car, chains were wrapped around the body, causing a lot of extra damage. The wreck was sold to someone wanting to build a 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider recreation, the roof being cut off and discarded.
However, the car was stored for nearly 30 years before being acquired in 2006. Since then it’s undergone a ground-up rebuild, including extensive repairs to the chassis, a genuine Scaglietti front section and new body panels to return it to its original Berlinetta configuration.
The 100% complete, but partially finished, project is now up for sale, including many boxes of parts. The original speedometer reads only 26,117 miles. The car is being sold on the Collecting Cars website (www.collectingcars.com).
