  • This Daytona Coupe, the second built (S/N CSX2299), won its GT3 class at the 1964 Le Mans with Dan Gurney and Bob Bondurant at the helm (placed 4th overall).

    The car hit 195mph on the Mulsanne Straight during the race.

    Originally this Daytona was painted in a colour known as Viking Blue, but in 1965 was repainted in Guardsman Blue and had larger than original stripes put on, running front to rear, and then the short nose stripe added that you can just see in the photo. No explanation is given as to why it only runs across half the car
