    Here's several relatively recent pics of 15417. When I purchased it for my company about 15 years ago, it was part of a package of cars. It had been freshly restored by Frank Triarsi's Classic Coach in Elizabeth, New Jersey. It's current condition is virtually the same as it was back then.

    Wonderful spec in that color combination, thank you for the link.
    Any thought on what serial number (somewhere under 15,000?) when the factory silver paint was no longer put on the nose of the Daytona models as a standard build?
    Someone with a spyder years ago commented that Ferrari changed the silver nose paint from standard to a request option some time in 1971?

    I thought there were only 3 switches on the dash for a "real" Daytona Spider. Why does this Spider have the 4 switches.

    The 4th switch was usually added by dealer for front fog lights on a Spyder but it could have been for anything that was an electrical accessary.
    The Spyder had 3 as standard as it did not have the heated rear screen which is what the forth switch was for on the coupe.

    What a pain to put a 4th switch in. Symmetrically they'd have to refigure that to line up with the switches above.

    Back in the day they did not bother to line up the extra switch some of the time.

    It’s not too bad to do it right if you are having the dash recovered, the dash is only fiberglass so you just glass over the holes and start again, this pic is of genuine Spyder dash being sorted out, and you can see where the old switches were

    Featuring 4, instead of 3, or vise versa dash switch arrangement in a nearly 50 year old car from a manufacturer not known for "in period" production consistency could be result of almost any number of reasons, especially when adding considerations of all that might have happened in subsequent decades since the cars initial manufacture.

    I have to admit I just love the old-world Italian craftsmanship evident not only in the way longitudal holes have been cut in Daytona dashes, but in so many other, similar ways the coachwork on these cars were originally carried out. :rolleyes:
    (I assume) they sure don't make them like they used to. ;)

    Well, they probably couldn't be considered hand-built Italian vintage cars without offering variety of emotions. :rolleyes:

    I also recall hearing/reading a comment long ago from some one a lot more experienced than I with vintage Ferrari, (paraphrasing) "Always and never are two words one should avoid when referring to construction or most any other detail in (vintage) Ferrari production models" and my experience observing, researching and working on many Daytonas has proven it very apt.

    The Daytona is gorgeous in both coupe & convertible. One of Ferrari's great classics. Remember these in the 1970's.

    It looks like a replica to me.

    Number plate light is wrong, Ferrari script is missing, fog / reversing lights are wrong, exhausts look the wrong angle, brake light lenses are wrong.
