Features

1971 Euro Model Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Spyder conversion s/n 13933. 365 GTB/4 Spyder conversion s/n 13933 is one of the very last covered headlights Euro-spec Daytonas built, factory-equipped with air conditioning. Spyder conversion s/n 13933 was imported to the US in 1971. In 1979 it and was converted to Daytona Spyder specifications by Richard Straman and Company. In early 2016, Spyder conversion s/n 13933 received a full cosmetic restoration, featuring show quality new black paint, an all-new tan leather interior plus the installation of a new canvas top and back window, with the work performed by Automotive Restoration, Inc. of Stratford, Connecticut. Over the course of this great vehicle’s 46-year history, it has been driven only 74,475 kilometres (roughly 46,175 miles) at the time of writing. Importantly, 365 GTB/4 Spyder conversion s/n 13933 has received expert service over the past two owners and the last 20 years from RPM in Vermont. We have all receipts on file in a well-presented ownership history, service history and restoration book. Today 365 GTB/4 Spyder conversion s/n 13933 remains cosmetically stunning, having less than 100 miles since its restoration by Automotive Restoration, Inc. The paintwork was done to the highest standards and is dent-free and ripple-free. The body is arrow straight and features excellent panel fit. The black canvas top and plastic rear window are new, the interior features all new soft and supple tan leather with black “Daytona” inserts. The dashboard has been recovered in new “mouse fur”, the leather on the door panels is new and unblemished. The center console, carpets, headliner and rear parcel shelf are all new and the instruments, switches and controls function as new. The steering wheel has been fitted with new leather and a modern radio has been fitted. The clamshell which covers the folding top when down has been recovered in the correct vinyl. The chassis and undercarriage are in excellent condition and this Daytona is mounted on excellent 7.5″ X 15″ Borrani wire wheels fitted with near new and period correct 215/70/VR 15 Michelin XWX tires. The trunk presents correctly, with new carpet of the correct type. The spare is the correct 7.5″ X 15″ Borrani wire wheel and is fitted with a matching 215/70/VR 15 Michelin XWX tire. The chrome, glass and lights are all in as-new condition. The airbox, engine and engine compartment are all very clean and present very nicely. Spyder conversion s/n 13933 is a “pride of ownership” Enzo-era Ferrari, runs extremely well, pulls strong to redline with near perfect syncros that go into 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear without a problem! Thanks to the cosmetic restoration, the cosmetics are as new and the A/C has been updated with front facing air vents. As a Euro model this Daytona is fitted with free flowing equal-length European exhaust headers for better top end performance. Has a well-known ownership history from new and is matching numbers, of course.
