This Ferrari Daytona is a one-off coupe constructed on chassis 12925. It was displayed at the 1969 Paris Salon.
The unique special features on this Daytona are the brushed stainless steel rollbar, removable zip-out plastic rear window, wrap-around front and rear bumpers and an elongated rear end. It may look like a convertible with a hard top, but it actually is a real coupe.
After the Paris show it was sold by Pininfarina to M. G. Crepaldi in Milan who re-sold it to first private owner, Mr. Rissi in Milan. He had his name engraved on a small plaque attached to the right rear of the car, below the taillights. Rissi traded it back to Crepaldi in 1978 who re-sold it to Matsuda-san in Japan. In 2003 the car went to Mr. Jean Guikas in Marseille, France.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
