Ferrari 365 GTS/4
Replica For Sale
Ferrari 365 GTS/4 "Daytona Spyder" made famous by the Daytona replica seen on the popular
1980's TV Show "Miami Vice" starring Don Johnson. Based on a 1980 Corvette chassis, the vehicle is street legal
and registered first in New Jersey, then Nevada, and now in Pennsylvania. It is now located in
Massachusetts just outside Boston. The Daytona Spyder replica body is fiberglass and has
real Ferrari parts including the door handles and tail lights. The original 350ci Corvette 230hp engine was
replaced in December, 2007 with a lightweight ZZ4 Corvette crate engine rated at 350hp.
The car is about 500 pounds lighter than the original Vette's 3,336 lbs, now weighing only 2,836 lbs.
So horsepower and weight is very close to the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 specs of 2,822 lbs and 352bhp.
That should make it as fast as the original, rated at 0-60 mph
in 5.4 seconds. There were only 122 factory-made Spyders, and only a few of those were shipped to the U.S.
The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 has a top speed of 172mph making it the fastest production car in the
world for many years.
In the 1980s the car gained new notoriety on the first two seasons of NBC's hit television series "Miami Vice".
The black car used in the series was a replica built on a Corvette chassis. Ferrari executives were
not pleased that their company and one of their products was represented on TV by a replica.
The Daytona replica was eventually destroyed on-screen and replaced with a Ferrari Testarossa, the
company's newest model at the time. Daytona replicas are even more rare than the originals, as fewer were produced.
Original Daytona Spyders now sell for prices in excess of a million dollars.
There were a number of original builders of Daytona replicas in the 1980s including McBurnie Coachcraft,
California Custom Coach, and Daytona Coachworks of Rowley, Massachusetts. I do not know which builder
constructed my car as it was already assembled when I purchased it in 2002. Ferrari has now forced all Daytona
replica manufacturers out of production, so the only way to own one is to purchase it on the secondary market.
The leather interior is in good condition. The fiberglass, paint and chrome are in fair condition.
The running gear and drive train are in excellent condition.
Everything else is very good mechanically with the exception that the hand brake and cruise control
do not work. The transmission is an automatic. There is no AC. The brakes are good and the tires are fair.
There is only about 2,000 miles on the new engine. The car is priced at $25,000.00 and has a clear Pennsylvania Title.
You can ask me to take it to a local
mechanic if you wish to pay for a pre-purchase inspection. I can help arrange for transport
from the Boston area, but you will need to pay the cost of shipping. Call or write for more information.
Not only is it a blast to drive, this is a show car that wins trophies at car shows, and this is the kind of fun it provides:
Call or write for more information. Serious inquiries only please!
