    I should've taken a photo but didn't want to be disrespectful to the (unknown) to me owner. At The Panel Shop in Stratford, CT a few weeks back, they were doing some INSANE work on a beautiful Rosso Rubino (to my eye) Daytona. If the owner is on FChat, you have a gorgeous car that's getting the best treatment in body work I've ever seen in person. Those guys are other world.

    I never cared for Borrani wheels on Daytona or C4, they just don't work with the lines. 2+2 is fine either way.

    I prefer the cromodoras also but that particula Daytona just blows my mind.

    I agree. Plus Borrani wheels were overmatched by the torque that the 365GTB/4 engine put out. I've heard that driving hard will result in popping spokes on those wire wheels.

    Check out this thread it has a lot of information on why wire wheels went away as tires got wider and stickier and torque increased:

    Wire wheels over 50 year old alloys that bend or get hair line cracks when tyres are removed, I would take the wire every time.

    I drove my car fairly hard without a problem and it is now being driven even harder on rallies with wires on.

    I love the look of wire wheels.

    I couldn't agree more with Wheels1. I have wires on my Daytona and over the past 25 years have never had any problems. I think that they look great.

    ^ what are front and rear body protections as stated on the invoice?
    also, the wire wheels are the non standard, and non optional over sized wheels. only wheels available were 7 1/2” for both wires and cromos.

    Agreed they look wide in this photo but I checked them on Sat.
    This was one of the cars I was judging.

    ^ Well, in all fairness, a lot of people do and have always done non standard modifications to their cars, regardless of make or model, new or used and some do few, while others a lot. :rolleyes:
    I’ve even heard of & seen some 250 GTOs with non standard components & mods. :eek:

    Back then, that was the equivalent of about 9000$ Canadian.

    Wow!

    As I recall the 1972 Daytona Spyder was priced about $27,000 CDN and a tough sell. That didn't stop the Toronto Ferrari dealer from getting a new yellow Daytona Spyder from the Detroit Ferrari dealer to sell in Canada!

    Several Toronto Daytona coupes were ordered with a black interior but with the grey carpets for a nice contrast. That interior should create a fine result!
    "Files" meaning the restoration has progressed beyond this stage now???
