It was exported to France and registered in August 1969. Remaining in France, the car has survived in highly original and cosmetically unrestored condition. It was acquired by the consignor in April of 2015,who ordered a mechanical overhaul; invoices for this work are on file. Chassis no. 2961 was featured in the May 2018 edition of GT Italia magazine.

Completed in July 1967 and delivered to Auto Becker in Düsseldorf, Germany. By the mid-1970s it was exported to Switzerland, and in 1987 it was purchased by the consignor’s father accounting for 33 years of uninterrupted single ownership. Annually serviced as needed, and in recent years it has received new brakes, hoses, work to the suspension, and a new battery. In 1993 the coachwork was refinished in the original factory color at which time the engine was also resealed. Confirmed to be retaining its original chassis, engine, and gearbox. 82,193 km. Lot 354. Not sold at €355,000 high bid.

In 2016 the car was shipped to London, where it was restored to its original paint color. Classiche certification, confirming the original engine. Accompanied by correct owner’s manuals with pouch, as well as invoices from its restoration. Lot 367. Sold for €264,000.

    365 GT4/BB, S/N 17561 (1974). Rosso Chiaro with nero leather. Estimate €220,000 to €260,000. Delivered to its first Italian owner in February 1974. It was exported to France in the late 1970s, before being owned by Formula 1 driver, Jean-Pierre Jabouille, who reportedly purchased the car as a project in a tired state. Unfortunately, the restoration never took place and the car spent in excess of twenty years being used for ancillary parts at Charles Pozzi’s Ferrari distributorship outside Paris. It is not known exactly why the car was taken off the road at this time, although evidence of the rear clamshell opening at speed and damage to the lower bodywork on its right-hand side was found prior to the restoration. Its major components (including the original engine and gearbox) were never separated and was rescued by its current owner as a project in 2005, who then began a comprehensive restoration. One glance at the 200-page book that chronicles the entire restoration of the car will demonstrate the love, care and attention for detail that went into the rebuild. Paperwork for all accompanies the sale. Only 3,000 km since being put back on the road.  Lot 397. Sold for €275,000.

By 2008, the car had returned to Europe and was registered in Europe in June of that year. Its current German owner purchased the car from France in November 2014. It has remained with him since then and still presents very well throughout. Lot 390. Sold for €198,000.
