    This thread is loosing its good manners
    If you really want to know, I found the same picture on an other website. And there was clearly mentioned Mont Tremblant.
    Does that never occur to you?
    Please, have a little bit of decency.

    Ed Davies in 1024 at front with added roll hoop as he is quite tall. It was later removed.

    Someone had paid too much for '1004' and received far too little evidence of its frame and identity and now urgently needs asset protection by experts and 'scientific methods', which has failed so far.

    PS: Is there a picture of the '1004' frame? This tread needs photographs ...

    What a wonderful proposal to sue Ferrari in Italy. It’s like suing the pope at the Vatican for issuing a lettre of indulgence.

    And not ‘I have the papers’ but the papers are needed to check the claims which try to change history after decades.

    I know of at least one expert attorney based in the city of Zurich, Switzerland. Pretty sure that he is capable..........

    Yes, more than a handful.
    Do your own homework.

    They sure did....
    However got it for just about half of what Girardo was originally asking.... which would raise some red flags for me- if I was the buyer- especially considering the true #1004 has significant racing history.

    14 July 1974, Brian Redman raced the 712 CanAm 1010 at Watkins Glen. In his book he wrote on page 266 the following:

    "In the race, attrition was my friend until, abruptly, it wasn't. Having worked the car up to second place, I was feeling quite good about myself when a suspension link broke on the main straight at 170mph, sending me down the track in a series of violent swerves. Fortunately, I hit nothing..."

    These pictures show the original body used for 1010's last race:

    To be honest, we had it stored in boxes since the last 25 years together with lots of other 512 S/M spare parts. And one day last year we asked ourselves what we might discover in these big wooden boxes, we just had forgotten for so long. Et voila, here it is.

    Brian Redman. The thing (712P chassis 1010, one off) almost killed him when the suspension failed at top speed at the Glen...but sweet revenge, decades later, he won a historic challenge race in it at the Cavallino Classic:)

    Edit, I had not read the posts above when writing this sorry. Still great karma:)!

    What the hell "didn't he hit" that resulted in the damage shown?

    The suspension broke presumably causing the damage.
