The Ferrari and Porsche Sale 21st September 2019 59 Automobilia + buyer’s premium of 15% including VAT @ 20% 12.30pm A Sale of Ferraris LOT 324 An 8-track music player was fitted in February 2005 and the car was fitted with power-steering by TDH Classics in May 2006. The following few years appear routine (by Ferrari standards) until January 2015 when there is an invoice from Foskers for £22,544 that relates to a full strip, repair and repaint in its original colour and chroming and sundry work to the bumpers. Our vendor purchased the Daytona from Foskers in April 2016 and in the file there is a very detailed report from the hugely knowledgeable John Pogson MIMI who had been asked to carry out a pre-sale inspection. The issues highlighted were mainly cosmetic and minor mechanical and it would appear that our vendor made allowance for these prior to agreeing on a final figure. Certainly, there are half a dozen invoices (around £9,000) from Italia-Autosport over the following three years that appear to address all the items from that report. During the Summer of 2016, 15837 was successful in being awarded its ‘Certificazione di Autenticita’ by the factory, the legendary ‘Classiche’ that every classic Ferrari owner desires and that confirms 15837 retains its matching numbers original engine, gearbox, differential and other key parts. Naturally, this will accompany the car in its bespoke red box. Also with the car will be the comprehensive Owner’s File containing MOTs, MOT History, ownership history, service records, dozens of invoices, inspection reports, August 2004 issue of Octane, and colour photographs of the bodywork restoration. We welcome any inspection of this important car and would suggest that we leave the last words to John Pogson who has worked with these cars for over forty years and is an acknowledged authority on the Daytona. He kindly let us have his opinion in the last few days. “I have been responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of 15837 since (our vendor’s purchase). I can report that the originality and patina in this car are amazing and one of the best I’ve ever seen, very hard to find this level today. No faults to report. This is one of the best, most rewarding Daytonas I’ve ever driven.”
