Chassis #: 14897
Sold for $572,000 at 2018 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach.
This Ferrari Daytona was completed at the Ferrari factory on January 11th of 1972. It was built as a United States-specification example and finished in the color scheme of Giallo Senape (Mustard Yellow) with black leather upholstery. The car was delivered new to official North American distributor Luigi Chinetti Motors of Greenwich, Connecticut. While in the care of its first owner it was involved in an accident. The damaged car was returned to Chinetti, who sent it to Modena, Italy for a total rebuild and conversion into a Giovanni Michelotti-designed NART Spider. Chinetti was responsible for many of the custom-bodied Daytonas, having commissioned five highly individualized examples between 1974 and 1976, including this example. Additionally, Chinetti ordered a Daytona Competizione (chassis 15965) with Michelotti coachwork for the 1975 NART Le Mans effort. A year later, Chinetti ordered three Michelotti Spiders of the same design, based on chassis 14299, 15003, and 16467.

This example, chassis 14897, with Michelotti Spyder coachwork featured a targa bar, molded bumpers, and cut-down doors. The interior has an angular appearance with the original Veglia Borletti gauges, with Arancione (orange) tinted leather upholstery. The exterior is finished in the color scheme of metallic pale blue.

Chinetti sold this Daytona to Alan Frank of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1975. It remained in his care for the next 23 years, before it was sold to Symbolic Motor Car Co. in 1998. Todd Morici purchased the car in 2000 and sold it to the current owner in the same year. Since then it has been kept in predominantly static storage.

The car is powered by a 4,390cc dual overhead cam v-12 engine fitted with six Weber 40 DCN21/A twin-choke carburetors and offering over 350 horsepower. There is a five-speed manual transaxle and four-wheel disc brakes.
