Chassis no. 16519. Rosso Chiaro over tan leather. 4,390/352hp, 5-speed, chrome spoke Borrani wire wheels (Cromodora alloy wheels included), painted nose panel, popup lights, ANSA exhaust, headrests, power windows, Becker Mexico cassette stereo, tool roll, manuals, jack, tinted windows. Ferrari Classiche Red Book certified.

Evaluation: Good paint with a smattering of tiny chips, even under the chip-guarded nose, and joint cracks. Good lightly stretched upholstery. Faded old dashtop. The engine compartment, chassis and underbody are aged and show miles. A sound, well-maintained Daytona driver showing 24,317 quite possibly original kilometers. Road grimy chassis.

Bottom Line: Offered by Bonhams at Quail Lodge in 2018 where it showed 24,175 km against today’s 24,317 km and was reported bid to $520,000. 2018 was a bad Daytona year at Monterey with only one of five offered in the various auctions selling and the result here is representative of the last three years of Daytona depreciation and little reward for maintaining and insuring it for only 142 km covered in the interim.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
