“The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 is the best sports car in the world.”
– Road & Track, October 1970
This late-production 365 GTB/4 Daytona, numbered 16777, is an incredibly original U.S.-specification example with excellent documented history, factory-fitted new with air conditioning and completed during February 1973. As documented in Ferrari Serial Numbers Part I by Hilary A. Raab, Jr., 16777 was car number 1131 in the 365 GTB/4 assembly sequence. History as documented in the Ferrari Market Letter below:
Once stateside, this 365 GTB/4 was delivered new to Bill Harrah’s Modern Classic Motors of Reno, Nevada in Rosso Dino over Black Leather and then purchased new by Norman Silver of High Point, North Carolina. In 1977 at just 1,202 miles, it was sold to FAF Motorcars, which sold the Ferrari to Jake Weaver of Jackson, Mississippi. The next known personal owner of the Daytona was Homa Weerasuria of the San Antonio, Texas area, who acquired the car in 1980 and advertised it for sale in 1988 at 5,535 stated miles with 16777 retaining the majority of its original Rosso Dino paint finish and equipped with Borrani wire-spoke wheels. Noted Texas collector Jerry J. Moore purchased 16777 in the 1990s and kept it for several years, followed by Dieter Scherfenberg and latterly his son who kept the car until 2005. Scherfenberg sold 16777 to Stan Zagorski. Two years later, in 2007, Wayne Carini’s Continental Autobody performed a color change to the current stunning Fly Yellow and then, in 2010, California businessman Lee Barba became the Daytona’s next owner. The current owner acquired the car in 2016 from Barba.
16777 has travelled a grand total of 7,237 miles from new, and it shows. Authentic and incredible in presentation throughout, this wonderful Ferrari retains its original interior (down to the best condition factory dash “Mouse Hair” we’ve ever seen!). The 365 rides on beautiful 8 inch wide Borrani wire wheels with matching mounted spare, and comes complete with professionally rebuilt Koni shock absorbers. The audio system includes a 1970s/80s era Blaupunkt head unit with “gooseneck” control panel.
Outstanding documentation includes the books and manuals, warranty booklet and warranty card in their leather pouch, plus a complete and correct tool kit and jack bag.
365 GTB/4 Daytona 16777 has benefitted from excellent care throughout its lifetime and with and the incredibly original interior is a testament to the exceptionally low mileage from new. You would be hard pressed to find a better performing 12 cylinder Ferrari road car as 16777 stands at ready for show or driving events. This car needs absolutely nothing!
