    Marcel thank you for sharing all these wonderful Daytona images with the side stripe. Especially post #1515 showing *13745* wearing Oro Chiaro ?

    New to me; don't remember seeing this Daytona picture before. Maybe @375+ knows which car this 365 GTB/4 is...

    Shipping the car to Gary Bobileff in San Diego for some minor attention to details.
    I put a few thousand miles on the car over the summer so now it's time to put a few thousand on it during the winter months in Coachella Valley and SOCAL.

    ... but why are all spectators ignoring it, especially those focused on something to the right of it ?
    Must be something really interesting.

    I don't but the car is stunning in that color.

    Perhaps the Duseks were parked alongside?

    Asked and answered:)

    orange spyder with silver painted nose is unusual for a late car. 17045
    and it has the early style front bumper configuration.

    I recall a few interviews with Guy Lafleur and journalist Jacques Duval mentioning a price at the time of around 19K CDN.

    Dino 246GT $17,800

    365 GTB/4 $27,500

    365 GTB/4 Spyder $29,500

    365 GTC/4 $28,500

    Perhaps I may have misunderstood, or Luigi Della Grotta was giving them a discount. LOL!!!

    All kiddings aside, that is serious coin for the times.
    You bought nice homes for those prices.

    Timo nice picture of the fender crease characteristic! What is the serial number range; a 16000 car? Perhaps the lighting accentuates the shape but the curve at the front is present on later Daytona models. Sometimes it is lost or retained on the whim of the body man. As I recall Junior said most customers had no preference to keeping the crease and the curve more pronounced or toning it down. Sharp body lines are one of the more subtle skills of the body man's work...

    On this Blu Sera Daytona coupe 16933 the fender crease and curve has become rather subtle.

    Which one you mean ? ;)

    If you’re referring to the line coming down forward from the top of the fender to above corner light and pop-up headlight openings (also referred by “of2worlds” in post #1547), the sharpness of its ridge at the final “curve” is highly exaggerated and dramatized (as I intended) by the use of lighting & shadows present at the time photo was shot (Again: “photo can deceive/lie more than 1000 words” :rolleyes: ).
    In person or under different lighting that “fading curve” is much more subtle than my photo may suggest and more like the one shown in post #1547.

    All the “curves” in my photo are complimentary to each other, the way I believe they were intended to in the original design.
    Besides, number of differences need to be considered between mine and the “Production photo”.
    Latter shows an unfinished, still in metal forming stage, early plexi nose example, while mine shows finished/painted mid-production, (later style) pop-up headlight example.

    As for the stripped to metal examples, even mid-to-late production ones I’ve seen, either in-person or in photos, have lead me to believe that many of the minor coachwork design & styling details & feature were not yet included during that stage of original production. I believe most were refined by sanding the body filler/primers that were (heavily) sprayed on during the prep prior to final paint at the Scagliettis facilities.

    As I’ve pointed out before, I was never in or near Maranello when these cars were manufactured and therefor all my restoration interpretations or viewpoints are only based on my personal experiences and research.
    And until I discover or someone presents me compelling evidence based on firsthand experiences and research to prove my views inaccurate, I’ll stick to them.
