SOLD: c.1968-1973 Ferrari 365 V-12 Daytona Engine Assembly in Superb Condition

Recommended Posts



This is an original Ferrari 365 V-12 engine that would have been used to power one of the Ferrari Daytonas (GTB/4 or GTS/4) built from 1968 through 1973. It has been owned by the current collection since the late 1970s or early 1980s when it was purchased in the same condition that it exists today.

   This engine assembly, number 12799/B140 appears to be an extremely complete and correct example that has been properly stored and preserved in original condition. It appears to be all original and shows no signs of damage, abuse or neglect.

   Based on the stamped number of 12799 on the bell housing, it is likely to be from a mid-production Daytona.

   With the exception of the exhaust manifolds, this engine appears to be complete. It has the original downdraft carburetors, original air cleaner, alternator, starter, distributors, oil pumps, oil lines, oil filters, wiring, bell housing, clutch, flywheel, fuel connections, etc.

   The aluminum components such as the cylinder block, heads, bell housing, clutch housing, oil pan, flywheel housing and cam drive housing show no signs of wear, damage, or oxidation. All of the surface finishes appear to be factory original and free of modifications or alterations.

   The four original camshaft covers and air cleaner are still finished in their original “wrinkled” finish, black paint.     All of the hardware items appear to be original.

   There is no evidence that this engine has ever been taken apart or altered in any way.

   From an appearance standpoint, this engine assembly is very clean and very presentable. It has always been properly stored and displayed.

   For display purposes, this engine has been fitted to a custom built, aluminum display stand. This polished stand was professionally made and has the Ferrari emblem attached to the base.

  This is a highly sought after and rare engine that that will certainly offer its next owner a variety of desirable opportunities.

 The price is 110,000.00 for this engine and it is located near Detroit, MI.
