1978 Chevrolet Corvette "Miami Vice Ferrari Daytona Spider"
Why This Car Is Special
In the 1980s, a popular crime drama featured two sharply dressed
men as undercover detectives working the drug-ridden streets of
Miami. They patrolled the streets in a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTS/4
Daytona Spyder, but it really wasn't a Ferrari.
It was a replica built on a Corvette C3 chassis just like the 1978
Chevrolet Corvette "Miami Vice Ferrari" Replica we have here for
sale at Skyway Classics.
