1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider Conversion at Mecums

Since the 1970s, Richard Straman has removed hardtops from a number of cars ranging from Ferraris to Mercedes. His work began when the Ferrari 275 GTB/4 N.A.R.T. Spider ceased production after only 10 units were completed by Scaglietti. Customers turned to Straman to convert their cars into the more exciting, open-air variant.

This 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona was converted in the 1970s and is an example of Straman’s genius.
An upgraded variant of the Columbo-designed V-12 engine was used. It was 4.4L and linked to a 5-speed manual transmission.
The car will appear at Monterey Aug 23-25.
