2002, 25 Jan,. inspected by Mike Sheehan while visiting the owner’s race in Torrance, CA to photo the Maserati 200 SI.

The 365 GTB/4C is an unusually nice example of a competition Daytona. Gorgeous paint and body fit. Fanatical attention to detail. Cosmetically Much nicer than the Piet Roelofs cars.

As per the shop foreman, this car only weighs 2,450 lbs., amazingly light for a competition Daytona. The complete doors including the door frame, the door skins, and the door inner panels were made of aluminum. No door window frames. Full roll cage. Big brakes. The engine was done by Bruno in the late 80s, so about 425 hp.

Certainly one of the best, at least cosmetically, ever built.

2002, 11 July, sold to a client in Montreal, Canada.
