1969 365 GTB/4 On Offer

On offer from Mike Sheehan...

We are pleased to offer 1969 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 s/n 12995, finished in gorgeous near-new silver paint with an all-new black leather interior with black carpets. This is truly a unique "time-machine" 365 GTB/4 with a well documented restoration and ownership history back to the day it came to the US. As nice underneath as it is on top. We welcome any mechanical or body inspection. Priced right and seriously for sale at $329,500.

This Euro model plexi-headlight Daytona had one owner from 1976 to 2007, so 31 years, and has lived at Bill Gojkov's Enzo Motors in Anaheim, CA since 1978. This Daytona was dropped off with the instructions to do anything it needs, and has been restored from the ground up, thanks to an irreplaceable list of new-old-stock parts purchased from Bill Harrah's Modern Classic Motors in the late 1970s. 365 GTB/4 s/n 12995 has just finished what can easily be a platinum quality restoration with expert detail work to every component on the car.
New paint over bare metal. New seats, new door panels, new carpets, dash redone. All replaceable brakes, shock and suspension components are new. New correct original Euro model Ansa exhaust system. All suspension arms and components are cadmium plated or powder coated to a higher standard than when new. Fully detailed and painted frame and floor. The engine has been fully rebuilt and runs and drives as new backed by a silky smooth rebuilt transaxle. The complete engine, chassis, suspension, brakes and underhood area are all fully rebuilt and beautifully detailed. Body, paint and chassis restoration by Bill de Carr, Bellflower, CA and mechanical and interior restoration by Bill Gojkov's Enzo Motors, Anaheim. As a smog-free Euro-model Daytona, it is fitted with the larger Euro-model headers for very strong top-end performance.
Complete with its beautiful original tool roll and the full set of tools, as needed for a "platinum level" Ferrari.

May be my misunderstanding, but I thought the early Euro models had no headrests and had wood steering wheels ? w/ smiles Jimmy

PS. She looks immaculate nevertheless.

Don't know about the headrests, but would think they had a wood/steel steering wheel. And you're right, it is a beautiful car. Priced pretty well, too.

A three car garage so I could have a Ferrari again - any Ferrari. And a little more leg room in the Daytona so I could own one (with the garage, of course)...

I thought all Daytonas had headrests; any Ferrari after 68 for that matter in order to conform w/ US regs. Bluemel mentions wood wheels on early Daytonas, black leather on late - nothing about no having headrests.

I sold it last week. A bittersweet day, to be sure, but overall I had many wonderful Ferrari experiences over the last half-a-dozen years or so. I am still on the 458 Italia list, but really have nowhere to store it with my future home having only a small two-car garage and little parking available in the alley or on the street.

Nonetheless, I am headed to Atlanta one day next week to test drive a 458 for the sheer joy of it. I'll try and take some pictures and post a 'review'.

Thanks for asking...

I'm with Bryan, also think all Daytona's had headrests.

Nice example.

Early models did not have head rests, [ i think they look strage with out them] an a wooden steering wheel was a dealer option i think.

Like Jimmy said ,I've always thought that early Perspex Daytona had no head rest and a wooden Momo steering wheels from factory.

Several owners added "Vintage" Head rest on their cars ( or maybe it was an option at that time...?) See four last pics.
