    Do we know if this was Niki 365 GT4 2+2 daily driver or not
    Found this below from Erwin400 website

    The 365 has Italian export plates and is the German model (orange/white front reflectors, Round chrome outside mirror and probably hexagonal wheel centres rather than spinners) so I assumed it was Laudas company car.

    Thank you for posting MY photos.
    This was Niki's company car, the second of several he got.
    S/N is 17517.
    He is washing it in Fiorano, date is September 1973.
    Thereafter he received a silvergrey Daytona, and following the 365 GT4 2+2 he got a 365 GT4 BB, red-black, which I then purchased in Austria November 1985.

    No it happened after he sold that 365 GTB/4. The car wasn't even moving or running it was just a casualty of incompetence...

    Indeed, however I have since been advised that his former 365 GTB/4 has been restored now to a very fine condition! The car is once again painted the original silver color.
