USA model 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder conversion s/n 14997 finished in black on black. Converted by Straman in 1977–78, now with only 30,538 documented miles from new. This Daytona had a $15,000 service and a $15,000 strip and paint before going into storage, with no use since. Excellent exterior chrome and stainless trim, excellent window glass and windshield. Crisp shut and alignment on the doors, hood and trunk. Very nice Borrani wire wheels and Michelin XWX tires. Also comes with a full set of nice Cromadora wheels with Michelin XWX tires. Has the original “Clamshell” folding cover for the folded top. Soft leather seats and excellent door panels, headliner, carpets and rear shelf. The A/C has just been serviced and blows cold and the engine compartment is original and nicely detailed, with the original hood supports and hood pad. Has the jack, jack bag and hammer, spare and records going back to 1992. Comes with an extensive pre–purchase inspection and mechanical service.
