1976 Ferrari 365 Daddario Barchetta
The car was purchased in 1976 by Mrs. Nadia Proietti. Later, in 1979, Mr. Ercole Torrenti, an entrepreneur film in Rome, becomes the new owner of the Ferrari 365 GT4 2 + 2 and will take the property until 1989.
In the early 80s the car decided to turn and ricarrozzare his Ferrari 365 with the intent to make it a unique and special. Entrusted the work to the coachbuilder FratelliDaddario (Daddario Brothers) in Turin, a small body shop (part of the register of manufacturers) who allegedly made sport prototypes and, above all, was to supportthe other largest and most famous coachbuilders in Turin as Boano, Pinninfarina, Vignale and Moretti. In Turin, in fact, in the years 70/80 there were about 20 artisansand ingenious creators of cars and prototypes that have marked the history of the car.
Torrenti commissioned at Daddario the creation of this special car, with the intent to be inspired by the most famous Ferrari racing 50s. The car was then completelydisassembled and ricondizionanta, up to the visible result today: a Ferrari Barchetta with 12-cylinder engine, aluminum body, tubular frame with a shorter wheelbase, 2 seats. This transformation consisted in about 6000 hours of work.
The car is accompanied by a declaration written by Daddario in 1989, when Torrenti sold the car. In this declaration Daddario writes:
"The undersigned Oreste Daddario already co-owner of the homonymous body, declare that I have made on behalf of Mr Ercole Torrenti of Rome in the early 80s a prototype sports car with an aluminum body, tubular frame with a shorter wheelbase, two-seater sit with the car fornitami Ferrari 365 chassis 19235. the car wascompletely dismantled and reconditioned maintaining all original mechanics."
