Are you a fan of Evel Knievel? Do you love Ferraris? Do you collect cars? This 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder, chassis number 16835, was formerly owned by famed motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel who, after suffering his famous crash attempting to jump the fountains of Caesar’s Palace, was no longer able to get into the car and sold it to celebrated radio DJ Frankie Crocker.
In 1997 Crocker sold the original condition, Pininfarina-coachbuilt car to former professional baseball player – five-time World Series title holder – Hall of Fame inductee – and lifetime car aficionado Reggie Jackson. Bonhams & Butterfields just got the consignment of Jackson’s cars collection and will auction it, including this Ferrari Daytona Spyder, during the internationally renowned Monterey Car Week on Friday, August 14th at the Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, California. A preview is being hosted the day prior. Please note that while the adjacent Quail Motorsports Gathering is sold out, entry to the Bonhams & Butterfields’ preview and auction does not require a ticket and all are welcome. Those interested in registering to bid, either in person or remotely, may call or e-mail the Bonhams Motoring Department at 415-861-7500 or firstname.lastname@example.org
