    Love this pic. Went to High School with the owner's daughter. Still friends to this day. As Marcel knows, he also has a Comp Daytona and tasty Dino as well. Multiple decades of ownership. Very enthusiastic family.

    s/n 1044 - if I'm allowed, even if not such an old photo ... but snapped in 1989, at the Esposauto (Clay Regazzoni's Motor Show) in Lugano, Switzerland .

    OK, not #1030. Just a "R" and not #1030R.

    it is a 99% copy of 1030 so I call it 1030R, built for Kinch, UK (then owner of 1030)

    call it whatever you like Francis!

    Given the dirt, I would guess it is Lime Rock Park, before they paved the paddock area. Color, consistency and locale looks right.

    Well, I am confident I will get pounced on, but this is the one that Manfred Lampe always identified as #1004 prior to him having his Bob Houghton creation get certified to #1004.

    Mr. Massini has continually addressed this particular, magnificent, and 100% original 512 as #1046.
    However, I will stand by what I have previously shared... this car was never proven to be #1046.
    I will maintain that it is unjust to the car owner, and to those that truly enjoy these cars to have historians and the like to get the public to believe something that has not been proven.

    If the notion of this car being #1046 is continuously fed, then the search for the true #1004 will be forgotten.

    And it could be Lime Rock- as the car was extensively shown there. However, it was campaigned at several tracks throughout the USA and Canada.

    Monthlery spring 1982 Leonard parfums sponsored a series for cars of that era. I was there when my hero Didier Pironi, shortly after his wedding, led in Piper's home built P4, before the Engine failed. There was a 512S but a 917 won.

    Can't believe this endless discussion has come back to surface.
    Even with the best will, and maybe best intentions, nobody in the world is going to inverse, even if proven 'wrong' (whatever that could mean), the position the factory took in this matter. Why haven't you got faith in the tremendous experience of Mr.Massini? He has invested decades and decades in searching and looking for historically crucial details of numerous vintage Ferrari's. What possible interest could he have to state what he states?
    This will remain an eternal yes/no game where absolutely nobody is interested in. Most of us, if not all, will tend to believe 100 % the opinion of one of the most specialised Ferrari historians ever.
    And if it is really that important, the 'victim' owner (if there really would be one) can always try and sue Ferrari Classiche.
