With only 15 factory built 365 GTB/4C competizione Daytonas, there has long been a strong
demand for similar cars both at the professional level when racing in period and today as club racers. S/n 13991
was built by Bruno Bori of Modena Sportscars in LA as a virtual duplicate of the factory built 365 GTB/4C s/n 16407
which finished second overall in the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1979 with Morton and Adamowicz driving. 365 GTB/4C
s/n 13991 features the same competition style, plexi-glass covered headlights, fender flares, and competition
wheels as featured on the original factory built cars.
It also has a front air dam, front spoiler, racing grille, lightened hood, outside door filler,
rear brake boost, engine cold air box, lightened doors and trunk safety latches as the factory cars.
This Daytona is also fitted with a much stronger updated roll cage, fire system, fuel cell,
FIA approved racing seats, and much improved brake system from the factory cars. The Daytona engine is virtually
bullet proof, even in racing specs, this engine has been rebuilt to full factory standards, as new.
The transaxle case is the weakest mechanical link in the Daytona’s power train, so 365 GTB/4C
conversion s/n 13991 is fitted with a newer and much stronger transaxle case and steel side plates and the “short”
3:90×1 rear end gear.
This Ferrari offers staggering performance, very low maintenance, stunning good looks, and a
mechanical sound to die for. It’s the ultimate club racer and is eligible for the Ferrari Historic race series.

2002, 25 Jan,. inspected by Mike Sheehan while visiting the owner’s race in Torrance, CA
to photo the Maserati 200 SI.
The 365 GTB/4C is an unusually nice example of a competition Daytona. Gorgeous paint and body fit.
Fanatical attention to detail. Cosmetically Much nicer than the Piet Roelofs cars.
As per the shop foreman, this car only weighs 2,450 lbs., amazingly light for a competition Daytona.
The complete doors including the door frame, the door skins, and the door inner panels were made of aluminum. No door window
frames. Full roll cage. Big brakes. The engine was done by Bruno in the late 80s, so about 425 hp.
Certainly one of the best, at least cosmetically, ever built.
2002, 08 Feb., inspected and photographed in detail by M. Sheehan. The closer you look the
better it looks.
2002, 11 July, sold to a client in Montreal, Canada.
