For sale - disassembled and unfinished restoration of an EG Autokraft, a Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Berlinetta replica (known as the ‘Ferrari Daytona’) - RHD and registered/ titled in the UK as a 1978 EG Autokraft.

This car is one of the only six EG Autokraft Coupe Replicas built by Emilio Garcia. The EG Autokraft is without doubt the most accurate replica of the marque (Ferrari 365 GTB4 or Daytona as it was known), dimensions are exact and allow genuine Ferrari Daytona parts to be used if required. The EG Autokraft was the work of Emilio Garcia and Peter Jacobs, Emilio had been turning genuine Ferrari Daytona Coupes into Spyders for years and the next logical step was for him to engineer a replica based off the original cars he was modifying. He turned to Peter Jacobs to make the molds and bodies, Peter was the man who built the bodies for the Ford RS200 Rally car and the GTD, a very well know GT40 replica. The EG bodies were Kevlar reinforced composite and only 6 coupe bodies were known to have been produced. The chassis is an authentic tube replica of the original Ferrari Daytona, but the car utilizes V12 Jaguar mechanical components (V12 Engine, gearbox, steering, suspension and axles). My car is dismantled and was being restored and updated, see story and pictures below. Im now based in the US whilst the car is located in the UK.

I’ve owned this car for many years, driven it occasionally and then decided to create an even more accurate version of the Ferrari Daytona with this car. I was very happy with the exterior look, the body is in amazing shape with high quality finish of both panels and paint. However the interior was not ‘authentic’ enough for me (it used the Jaguar instruments and switchgear). So I set about collecting the complete interior parts from an original Ferrari Daytona, it’s taken me 5 years to collect all the original Ferrari parts but now I have everything that is required to make this the most accurate Ferrari Daytona Coupe replica ever built – the switches and original instrument gauges, a complete original Ferrari steering column and NOS Daytona steering wheel! I even have the rare material that the dash was originally finished in – a type of Alcantara called ‘ Mouse Hair’ that I found in Italy. The fibreglass dash was re-shaped to more accurately represent the original Ferrari and allow for fitment of the original Ferrari gauges as well as replicating the air-conditioning plastic box which I had vacuum formed. I also have many other original Ferrari Daytona parts, such as the Cromodora wheels, complete headlights cans, seals and lenses, taillights, glass, badging, grills, bumpers, door locks and latches etc. I was in the process of changing the colour combinations of the car – I was planning to have a silver exterior and blue interior, and as such had already had the seats re-trimmed in blue Connolly hide (I have a number of hides specially coloured by Connolly Leather in the UK - the remaining hides will be included in the sale). The seats are also very authentic replicas of the original seats even down to the inner frames and headrest and I even had the inserts accurately copied with a special press tool I had machined. The other trim parts of the interior will require re-trimming in the blue hides, but these are fairly simple surfaces to be trimmed.

The engine is a Jaguar V12, with the very hard to find set of 6 vintage downdraft Webers, Hayward & Scott stainless steel tubular race headers and authentic Ferrari Daytona back boxes with quad outlets. The gearbox is a manual Getrag 5 speed, and the linkage for the shifter has been engineered to replicate the offset of the original Daytona mechanism. I had specially commissioned aluminium castings to replicate the cam covers of the original Daytona, which sit on top of the existing Jaguar cam covers. There is an aluminium radiator, lightweight flywheel, competition clutch and lightweight, high torque starter motor. There is a brand new wiring loom, once again, that I had specially built for this car. There is a competition pedal box with brake bias and the brakes have been overhauled and many suspension parts re-plated. There are many spares and duplicate parts that come with the car, however it is a project that requires re-assembly. But please don't be under the misunderstanding that this project is almost finished, there is still quite a lot to do to get this project back together and on the road again and some experience will probably be required to do this work......

This is a very unique car, built by industry experts in high quality, exotic materials over 30 years ago, with accurate chassis and some very expensive original Ferrari components. With only 6 ever built, you’ll probably never see another one at any show or track day or see a replica Ferrari Daytona with this level of accuracy. The project is at a point where it could be put back together to create a fast, beautiful, road going classic car or with some minor modification, turned into a unique track day monster!

Prior to restoration the car had featured in Kitcar, a UK magazine - please see attached images of some of the article. I am current based in Michigan, USA and the car is located in the UK but I welcome international bidders, however shipping costs and transportation organisation is the responsibility of the buyer. If you have any questions please email me.....

I should mention, my car is RHD - however the conversion to LHD is pretty straight forward if required. I have the contact details of where you can purchase a complete LHD replica Ferrari Daytona dash for approx. $2500 - or you could modify the current dash with a little work. The current dash pod, steering column, switches, vents and instruments are universal and are used for both versions - the pedal box is a stand alone item and can be swapped over - the firewall is setup for both LHD and RHD - the only other item required would be a straight swap of a LHD Jaguar V12 steering rack.
