Ferrari Club of America International Meeting and Concours, Monterey, 1994Palm Beach International Concours d’Elegance, Florida, 2006

Introduced at the Paris Salon in 1968, Ferrari’s new 365 GTB/4 Berlinetta earned its unofficial “Daytona” name while still a prototype, in honor of the Scuderia’s electrifying podium sweep in Florida at the famous 24-hour race there in 1967. This outstanding example of the universally acclaimed Daytona is exceptionally original and well preserved, and currently displaying less than 7,000 miles.

Chassis 14821 is an original US model equipped with Borletti air-conditioning and power windows, factory-finished in Marrone Colorado (Colorado Brown) with beige leather upholstery. It was completed on December 16, 1971, delivered to East Coast Ferrari distributor Luigi Chinetti Motors of Greenwich, Connecticut, and sold new to physician James E. Outler of Warner Robins, Georgia. A dedicated Ferrari enthusiast and FCA member, Dr. Outler’s careful ownership of the Ferrari for many years kept it in pristine condition, playing a large role in 14821’s great deal of originality today. The Ferrari remained in Dr. Outler’s ownership until sold by Mrs. Vieno M. Outler in June 1985 to Donald A. Kayko Sr. of Waterford, Michigan. At this point, 14821 had just 5,824 miles, and remained entirely original.

Mr. Kayko, an FCA member and Ferrari aficionado, would remain the owner of the Daytona for the next 20 years. He kept it well protected from the elements and only used it on very special occasions. He entered the car in several preservationclass concours events, one of them was the 1994 FCA International Meet held in Monterey during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance® week.

In 2005, Mr. Kayko sold 14821 to renowned Ferrari collector James Page of Boca Raton, Florida. At that point, the Daytona still remained original throughout and had fewer than 6,000 miles on its odometer. Mr. Page entrusted 14821 to Ferrari specialist Al Roberts of Shelton Ferrari in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for a thorough mechanical recommissioning.

Mr. Page later sold 14821 to Steve Wolf, also of Boca Raton. Mr. Wolf entered the Ferrari in several concours events, including the 2006 Palm Beach International Concours d’Elegance, before repainting the car in its current Rosso Corsa finish. Further recommissioning work was performed during this time, including the installation of a new clutch.

Today, with less than 7,000 miles, this very well-preserved Daytona makes a striking impression. Chassis 14821 has been Ferrari Classiche certified, and included with this sale are its Red Book, tool kit, and Marcel Massini’s report.

Presented today in superb original order and well documented, this low-mileage Daytona clearly benefits from its limited roster of owners. Accordingly, it stands tall as a benchmark example of the Ferrari model that Road & Track editors declared nearly 50 years ago to be “the best sports car in the world.”
