Evaluation: Visually maintained, largely original | Flawed old color change repaint from Copper Metallic, with edge chips and polishing swirl. Sound but scuffed chrome. Worn, creased, and lightly soiled original upholstery. Good gauges and switchgear. Good, orderly engine compartment with minimal seepage. A credible, driver-quality Daytona.
Bottom Line: This is a desirable Daytona, but the bidding was steady and showed no tendency at all to getting any higher than this. There was a bid extension, but no higher bid was ever displayed, and the result would seem to show some offline negotiation going on with the consignor and/or the high bidder(s). It would be spectacular in Copper Metallic, but it is menacing in black, and it could have been sold with minimal regret for the reported high bid.
