    Hi, I think it's some years Jody Scheckter car has been registered in France now. I saw this car twice on auctions in Paris. When it comes to colour, well ... not absolutely positive but I'd say green or some brown metal, quite sure there is a beige interior, tranny : can't remember, series : 400 for sure, series1 or 2 ? can't say.

    Scheckter's 400 was a chocolate-brown automatic.

    I can account for that one!! that's how I first fell in love with the 400..I grew up 5 minutes away from him and always saw him driving the 400 to bel air foods, a small market in bel air. You wonder how he fit in that car?? he also had a Volkswagen rabbit!! took the front seat out of it!!!

    What a shame! That car apparently got caught in a flood and had a salvage title when it was for sale on EBay in 2003 and then again in 2004.

    Mick Jagger kept a 365 Gt/4 2+2 (or whatever the correct model name/# was for the 6 tail-light model that was the same bodystyle and proceeded the 400) in the US in the early 1980s for his use and Jerry Hall's. The car was for sale in Dallas in 1986/1987 (IIRC, Jerry Hall's family was in Dallas).

    Cher owned one...her boyfriend at the time almost mowed down a few reporters with it once. Was all over the news. Color was black.

    What a brilliant resource!

    Our 400i GT was owned by a Music / Film producer... I'll dig up whom it was when I go through the cars file in the next few days.

    well, if Nick Mason did own a 400 that would be a real feather in our collective caps. i'd love to hear what he thought of it.

    I just bot a "60 Years of Ferrari Supercars" book and it has an interview with Nick Mason, talking about Ferrari's he's owned. It was actually a 412.

    Quote "Oh, and then there was a brief flirtation with a 412. Auto everything and magnolia hide. Three-speed 'box and full four-seat capacity. This was some crazed notion about practical family motoring, I think, and it was soon packed off to a dealer."

    i was afraid of that actually, but considering what he owns and drives it does not come as a surprise. the thing is, i spent a good deal of time helping a friend with his 5-speed 412 which allowed lots of time behind the wheel and i wasn't crazy about it either. the 400a that i've had since ' 01 was actually this same guys car and the reason we we met was because i called him to get some info years later. he had spent $76k doing a ground up restoration this car at the Dealer here in Ontario in '90-91 after buying it for $66k in ' 89. a year later he traded it in for a 512 tr. according to him, he spent the next dozen or so years regretting ever letting the 400 go. so he starts a 2 year world wide search for a 412 ' 03 (a 412 because his wife is very sensitive to the smell of gas, so no carbs, and he wanted the last of the series). he finds his car in Marseille, brings it over, and calls me up. we go through it and replace the steering pump and a bunch of ignition stuff and...he trades it in six months later because, he says, " it doesn't come close to his old 400 ". personally, i just didn't feel the same type of 'soul' in that 412 that i feel in my 400. again, i'm not surprised at Mason's comments.

    John McEnroe (tennis) had one. IIRC it was a 400i. Been years since I have seen the reference so I could be wrong on the model, but he did have one for a period. I think it was black/tan and stayed in the San Deigo (Poway????) area.

    Tony.
