    'Moar pics', as the kids say- I'd love to see more if you have time to share it, Timo.

    Hi Howard

    As you know, Ferraris such as Daytonas were not necessarily built in perfect chassis number sequence (or in sequence of Scaglietti body numbers). They were not even built in proper assembly number sequence.
    Your gorgeous 12971 has assembly sequence number 54, whereas 12955 has assembly sequence number 95. Which can be interpreted that 12955 is a "later" car or a car built later (despite its lower serial number).
    Plus there was always some overlap and different markets requiring/asking for individual configurations. And naturally client's individual wishes as well.
    I don't think we should apply today's (2020) super perfect robotised/Excel sheet structures when it comes to analyze handbuilt Ferraris built 50 years ago.
    12971 is a very early (6th built) RHD Daytona new to AUS.
    12955 is a LHD Daytona built for Italy.

    Kind regards
    Marcel Massini

    13921: originally Verde Pino 106-G-30 with Beige VM 3234 interior. Later repainted red, and then finally back to original colors. One of just twelve (12) Daytonas in Verde Pino originally.

    I believe that yellowish document is not a Ferrari factory document from Maranello but rather a paper/invoice/list from Maranello Concessionaires Ltd in the UK.

    Sorry Edd. I have no old photos of that car, or details on what I would think was full racing harness seat belts.

    The car was for sale here last year https://www.girardo.com/available/ and they were kind enough to send me the Maranello GB sales invoice for the car showing the head rests.

    I have to say they were one of the most helpful companies I have come across and seem to sell some great cars.

    12995??
    You mean 12955?

    12995 was originally silvergrey metallic, not blue. New in Milan, not Rome. Lives in TX/USA.

    Marcel, just for clarification, this is the original Maranello Concessionaires Order Form, filled out by them and sent to the client for signature.

    I am guessing a bit here, but the first owner of this Daytona replaced a 330 GTS with it. I bet that GTS only had lap belts, hence the request. Maranello Concessionaires confirmed that all Daytonas were fitted with belts from new, and we know they were three point belts.

    When this car emerged from a c. 25 year hibernation in 2013, the attached picture shows what it had then. There was no sign anywhere of previous fitment of anything else in that wonderful original interior.
