Partner/Operator - 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB4 Daytona. 4,390cc DOHC V12 Engine 6 Weber Carburetors 352bhp at 7,500rpm 5-Speed Manual Transaxle 4-Wheel Independent Suspension 4-Wheel Disc Brakes *Ferrari Classiche Red Book Certified *Matching numbers engine and original coachwork *Shown successfully at some the most discerning Concours events *Stunning example of the legendary Daytona Berlinetta. THE FERRARI 365 GTB/4 The concept of manufacturing a 4-cam V12-engined Berlinetta with considerably greater power output than the successful 275 GTB/4 model emerged in 1967, as soon as the 3.3-liter variant was being launched upon a receptive market. The new model would have to meet newly developed US federal regulations, which meant a tremendous amount of time-consuming development work before the new design could be introduced. Ferrari's first known prototype for such a car emerged during the winter of 1967 with bodywork presaging the final design that would be adopted, although its front-end treatment looked back towards that of the 275 GTB. It used a three-valve per cylinder 4-liter V12 engine that was not taken further. Instead a Tipo 251 power unit would be adopted, which was a more conventional 4.4-liter with hemispherical combustion chambers in its twin-cam heads, and single-plug ignition. The block had been lengthened to accommodate a bore and stroke of 81mm x 71mm, identical to the Tipo 245 engine's, which already powered the 365 GT 2-plus-2, GTC and GTS models. The new 4.4-liter unit was lubricated by a dry-sump system with a 14-liter separate tank. The compression ratio was 8.8:1 and with six Weber 40DCN carburetors, the engine delivered a muscular 352bhp at 7,500rpm, with 318lbs/ft. torque at 5,500rpm enough indeed, as one English technical writer of the time described as being "...more than enough to pull your house down". The mechanical ensemble, comprising engine, torque tube, and rear-mounted five-speed transaxle was attached to the tube chassis at four points two on the engine and two on the transaxle and the familiar 2.4-meter wheelbase was retained, which dated back in unbroken line to the 250 GT SWB. To clothe the new 365 GTB/4, Pininfarina created a classical and now legendary design, which combined Maranello tradition with modernity. Only the prototype body was actually built by Pininfarina and as with the preceding Berlinettas it was Scaglietti who actually made the bodies in steel (with opening panels in aluminum) for the production examples. The venue for the new model's launch was the October 1968 Paris Salon, and its immediately successful reception saw it being nicknamed the 'Daytona' in honor of the Ferrari factory team's 1-2-3 defeat of the mighty Ford GT fleet in the 1967 Daytona 24-Hour race. Shortly after debuting the gorgeous GTS/4 Spider, a number of important revisions were introduced on both the Berlinetta and Spider versions. These changes came about as a result of the newly imposed federal safety legislation in the USA that deemed covered headlights illegal. Ferrari and Pininfarina were subsequently being forced into carrying out a mild front-end makeover. Their answer was to fit the Daytona with retractable headlights in early 1971. Capable of achieving 278km/h (172mph) in standard form, the new Ferrari was the fastest production car in the world at that time. THE MOTOCAR OFFERED This gorgeous example of the legendary Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona was completed on March 20, 1973 in Clear Red (Rosso Chiaro 20-R-190) over a black interior (Nero VM 8500) in Connolly leather. It is a left-hand drive European version with air conditioning and extensive research shows that chassis 16519 was number 1,029 in the assembly sequence, bearing Scaglietti body number 1063. Within a few weeks of completion, this Ferrari 365 GTB/4 was delivered to Geneva, Switzerland and sold to a private collector. Documentation is incomplete, but it appears that the Ferrari spent a brief spell in Portugal before making its way to Sweden in 1976, where it remained for seven years, after which it was exported to the United States by a Ferrari enthusiast in Virginia. In 1986, the Daytona was purchased by Stanley Cohen of Windsor, Connecticut, who registered the car with the Ferrari Owners Club and retained it for his personal collection until June of 2000. With only 13,000 kms on the odometer and now sporting a new tan leather interior, the car was acquired by Herb Chambers, CEO of The Herb Chambers Companies the largest automobile dealership in New England, based in Somerville, Massachusetts. According to correspondence with Chambers which accompanies the car, he purchased the Ferrari Daytona for his own private collection and personal use and added a new set of Borrani wire wheels. The current owner acquired the car in 2005 with just around 15,000 kms on the odometer a figure indeed believed to be the cars actual mileage - and immediately exhibited it at the Quail Motorsports Gathering in Carmel Valley, California. The Daytona went on to garner several awards at various events, including Best of Show at the Highland Village Ferrari Festival in Houston. Since 2005, the current owner has driven the car less than 10,000 kms and stored it in an air-conditioned garage. Most recently the Ferrari has undergone a full inspection and compression test by Ferrari of Houston in preparation for the Cento-Miglia in New Orleans, and is deemed to be in very good condition a testament to over 30 years of meticulous care and maintenance. This Ferrari Daytona has never been modified or compromised and is a matching numbers car, as is testified by the Ferrari Classiche Certification or Red Book which accompanies the car. The sale also includes the original owner's manuals, books and tools. Dressed in an iconic robe of Pininfarina design and Scaglietti craftsmanship, it has become a standard bearer for the legendary Ferrari marque.

Eddie Tobias Jr.2 years agoI found them on line and called to schedule a test drive . No hassle, no pressure, a very friendly atmosphere. Purchased a QX56 two days after the test drive. Cody York and the rest of the sales team were very professional, I highly recommend Crave, you won't be disappointed.
Thomas3 years agoWorking with Cody York was a great experience. He provided valueable insights and made purchasing the California a wonderful experience. It was painless! Facility was spotless. Thanks Cody, you ROCK! Will definitely purchase future vehicles through Cody.
Brantmn3 years agoBought a 2003 996 Turbo X50 from Karl and the car was exactly as described! Karl was totally helpful AFTER the sale with some other historical detail on this rare vehicle. It is rare to have such attention from any dealer. I look forward to working with Crave again!
Greg Jardine3 years agoKarl Stomberg and Cody York over at Crave Luxury in The Woodlands are nothing short of TOP SHELF. If you're considering buying a High End Car, make sure you give them a call FIRST. I've recently purchased my 2nd Lamborghini from Crave Luxury in the span of 18 months. Getting to this dealership and home is a 6-7 hour round trip drive for me and still, it's totally worth the trip. My buying experience was beyond amazing 2X in a row. Every member of the staff is knowledgeable and super friendly. When you walk in to look (or buy), you know they want you there and you are treated as such. I wish more places could get the car-buying-experience right like they do here. I picked up my most recent Lamborghini on the night of 11/25/2015 which happens to be the day before Thanksgiving. Due to rush-hour/holiday traffic in Dallas, I was running behind schedule and they kept the dealership open after hours to accommodate my schedule. Best car buying experience I have ever had and I'll be back for Lamborghini #3 next year.
Tim Hellman3 years agoWorked with Cody York on purchasing a 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS. We did a Facetime walk through going over the car while it was on the lift and back again on the ground. Being 600 miles from their dealership this was very helpful. The car was pretty much everything as described. I would recommend using them in looking for or consigning your next car!
Eric H3 years agoI recently purchased a very highly optioned 2012 Porsche Carrera 911s from the guys at Crave. The car has 3,000 original miles and looks like new, in every way. I literally saw the car, drove it, and after some surprisingly easy negotiating, bought it that day. This car is typical of most of the vehicles Crave sells. They have a real talent for stocking very high end, low mile vehicles. You could eat off any vehicle in their show room. My impression is that they move their inventory pretty quickly, so if you like it, I recommend you buy it before someone else comes along.
RJ Rodriguez3 years agoI was surfing the net looking for a Porsche 911 when I came upon a 2013 911 at Crave Luxury Auto and immediately submitted an online request to see the car. Within minutes I recieved an email from Cody York to come down and check it out, we were there the very next day. Looked at the vehicle and fell in love with it, we negociated for a couple of days with Cody until we were comfortable with the price and purchased it. We drove down in a rental and were picked up by Cody at rental company and taken to the dealership to take possession of the vehicle. The professionalism and constant communications with Cody made this purchase easy and seamless. Would definitely recommend Crave Luxury Auto to anyone. Kudos to Cody York for this experience.
F4303 years agoWorked with Cody at Crave and purchased a car from them. Despite this being my first "online" purchase, I never felt as if I was being dismissed or treated differently from anyone walking in the door. Cody walked me through the process in a clear and succinct manner. In my dealings with him, I found him to be hard working and honest. The car was delivered without incident and it was exactly as described. I would buy another car from Crave.
Kayil Crow3 years agoI sent an email requesting information about a car that I was interested. Was answered promptly and with all of questions answered with great detail. When I came to visit, the showroom was amazing and I was pleased with the how I was treated and I did not feel that I was being cheated. Cody York is the Man to talk to if you're interested in buying a car. He will get you exactly what you're looking for and make sure it exceeds your expectations! 5+ stars!!!
Mike Thompson3 years agoI worked with Cody York on sourcing a specific car for me. I wanted an SL63 AMG in a hard color to find. Cody told me not a problem and that he could find that car for me. They required a deposit up front to get the ball rolling which is totally understandable. Less than a week Cody called me and said that my car was here! It was exactly what I was wanting. I rate Crave 5 stars and will be using them in the near future to get my wife in a Ferrari California! Thanks Cody!
jimmy morgan2 years agoI walked in with no appointment. Paul the manager was very thorough, laying out all my options & was very patient while I decided. Never felt any pressure from him at all. Clean establishment, including the restrooms. There's bottled water, comfy furniture, & television to watch while you wait. Definitely coming back again for future car repairs.
stom 95962 years agoThe experience at Crave Luxury was out of this world. As soon as I stepped foot into their amazing garage I was greeted and taken care. Their lead sales associate Cody assisted me and was so genuine when it came to answering any questions I had about any car. I highly recommend doing business with these professionals and will definitely be coming back in the future.
RJ Donnelly3 years agotop notch operation with an incredible fleet of rare and exotic cars. outstanding customer service. they go the extra mile for their customers. I highly recommend.
Richy Orozco3 years agoNice cars and cool people. I recommended this place to two family friends and they both ended up buying cars from Crave. The service is good and they know how to keep their customers happy.
Olena Jurak3 years agoWe bought our H2 in November 2015, it was a wonderful experience, we will definitely go back. Dieter was super, he helped us get the best deal on the trade, we confirmed the trade value with another buyer. We wanted to upgrade from our H3 in order to take our road trips in more comfort, and with more storage space. The car we bought had less then 15k miles on it, great condition, the only thing we have done to it since we bought it was upgrading the entertainment and navigation system. We could not be more happy with our purchase. Comparing to the experiences we've had with other car dealers, new cars and used, it is like night and day. Their inventory was something special, when we are ready to buy our few luxury roadsters we will definitely go back, or call ahead and let them know what we are looking for. Thanks Luxury Auto!
