Barn Find: 1969 Ferrari 365 GTB/4

Over the course of four production years, Ferrari manufactured over 1,200 versions of the renowned 365 GTB/4 “Daytona” between 1969 and 1973. From here, only five lightweight alloy competition cars were ever built for the 24 Hours of Daytona. To take that a step further, Ferrari only built one street version of the Daytona complete with an aluminum body – and guess what, you’re looking at it.

That’s right, this 1969 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 is the only one in existence as an aluminum-bodied coupe – rumored to have existed but not found for nearly 40 years until it was discovered stashed away in Japan in true barn-find condition. Remarkably, the vehicle remained unmodified and authentic with good condition confirmed in the interior along with the gearshift knob. Additionally, the ride was noted to boast the proper matching Scaglietti body numbers stamped on the aluminum panels and the original spare tire was never used either. Also, with an odometer reading of only 22,611 miles, this truly is a once in a lifetime find. Estimated worth falls between $1.6 and $2 million.
