Two-Seater Berlinetta designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti.

Supplied new by Maranello Concessionaires Limited, Egham to Dudley Styrron-Mason, Churt, Surrey which was to be his second of seven Ferrari Daytona’s (copy of the Factory Build Sheet is on file).

Mr Mason-Styrron collected the car from the factory on the 10th September 1971 and drove it back via his house in the South of France.

First registered in the UK on the 6th September 1971.

Ferrari conveyed some good news in the following months to Mr Mason-Styrron that they were prepared to build five more RHD Daytona Spyders and Mr Mason-Styrron duly ordered one.

Maranello Concessionaires took back the 356 GTB/4 in part exchange for a Daytona Spyder.

Maranello then sold the car to the second, unidentified owner.

The car was acquired by its third owner in 1977 by Mr Peter Thorp from Bobbie Bell of Bell and Colvill, West Horsley

Peter was the owner of an airfreight company Heathrow but better known for his company Safir Engineering LTD, maker of the Mk (IV) Ford GT40. He was also heavily interested in motor racing, eventually building the Safir Formula racing car. Peter travelled regularly to the USA and had seen several Daytona Berlinattas which had been converted to Spyders and managed to persuade his very reluctant tenants and next door neighbours, Brian Angliss of CP Autokraft to carry out the conversion if he found a suitable car. This he did, resulting in this vehicle.

Peter sold the car to Tom Walduck, a racing driver and owner of a small collection of interesting cars in February 1987. This car was used in a Cadbury’s chocolate TV commercial.

This car was also exhibited on the Cricket Ground at the 2003 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

In October 2015  circa of £25,000 was spent at Foskers.Engineering
