1972 USA Model Ferrari 365 GTB/4 s/n 15575. One family owned for thirty years! A time–capsule Daytona. Has the original owner pouch, owner’s manual, parts book, supplemental USA book, consumer information booklet and the original warranty card! Has the original tool roll, tool set, the original jack and jack kit. Amazingly well–documented Ferrari with ownership records back to new and a loose–leaf binder of service records as far back as 1976, with only 30,210 miles. Runs extremely well, pulls strong to redline with near perfect syncros into 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear cold without a problem! Good Michelin XWX tires and a Michelin XWX spare. Excellent body and paint. Excellent original leather. Very nice mouse–fur on the dash. Mechanically superb. A great candidate for the preservation award at Cavallino or the Ferrari National Meet.
