Conceived by Enzo Ferrari and "penned" within just seven days by Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti (also responsible for both the Dino and subsequent 308GTB), the 365 GTB/4 Berlinetta was Ferrari SPA's replacement for the outgoing 275GTB/4. Viewed by many as the embodiment of all that is Ferrari - style, power and reliability - the Scaglietti bodied coupe and spyder designs were the recipients of an all new three hundred and fifty-two brake horsepower, 4.4 litre V12 engine (designated the "tipo 251"), mated to a transaxle with an integral five-speed manual gearbox.

On its debut at the 1968 Paris Auto Salon, the 365GTB/4 was dubbed the “Daytona” by the world’s press, celebrating Ferrari’s 1-2-3 success at the 1967 running of the Floridian endurance race, the Daytona 24hrs. Maranello’s acknowledgement of the nickname wasn’t forthcoming …but the name stuck.

Early production 365GTB/4's featured fixed headlights behind an acrylic glass cover (plexi-glass), which were replaced in 1971 on safety grounds (more especially for the US market) by retractable, pop-up, twin headlights. Between 1967 and 1973, records detail approximately twelve hundred and eighty-four coupes, and one hundred and twenty-two spyders were delivered to global markets. The first RHD coupe was delivered in 1970 to the UK - chassis #12853.

Ordered by Maranello Concessionaires Limited on order no #594, dated 9/5/72. #15975 was specified with a Blue Dino metallizzato exterior (106.A.72), a blu VM3015 interior, a tipo tool-kit and air-conditioning.

Dispatched from Maranello on 26/7/72; this RHD chassis (one of just one hundred-and-fifty-eight Daytona coupe’s delivered to the UK market)  was delivered to Hexagon of Highgate, London N6 on 11/8/72.
