1974 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Serial Number 16997
We are pleased to offer USA model 1974 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 s/n 16997, a very late, very high serial number Daytona. Comes with a well documented ownership history from the day it was sold new to Earl Gorman, a very long term Ferrari owner and collector in Toronto, Canada. 365 GTB/4 s/n 16997 was the feature Ferrari (and feature car) at the Canadian auto show, Toronto, 1974. From new in silver with black leather and in Canada with only four owners over 31 years, from 1974 to 2005, before being sold to its current American owner.
Repainted black with tan leather in the late 1980s and then mechanically restored by Ferrari of Ontario in 1990. Extremely nice older black paint over a mirror-straight body, excellent chrome, excellent panel fit. Very nice older tan leather interior with black inserts, as-new black carpets covered in throw carpets and extremely nice mouse fur on the dash, a pride-of-ownership Daytona. Fitted with Cromodora mag wheels with excellent Michelin XWX tires. Comes with a full tool roll and the original set of books and pouch, complete with the original warranty card showing Yonge Steeles Motors Ltd. as the selling dealer and the 17 Feb., 1975 delivery date.
The Daytona represents the pinnacle of front-engined exotic car styling. Add in 350 horsepower and an exhaust shriek to die for, and you have the epitome of the 70’s super car. The Daytona represents the most desirable front-engined V-12 ever to leave Maranello. 55 in 1st gear, 85 in 2nd, 115 in 3rd, 150 in 4th and there is one gear left for those brave enough to exceed 170 mph in a road car. 365 GTB/4 s/n 16997 has just completed an exhaustive pre-sale inspection, rebuilt transaxle and new clutch. We welcome any mechanical inspection as we do not believe there is a Daytona that can compare in today’s market. We welcome a “fly in” personal inspection or a pre-purchase inspection by the shop of your choice. Priced right at $379,500.
