    I know you said you wanted a "sorted" car.

    However, this one is on ebay. Don't think it meets your definition, but it might be of interest.

    Any history available for the yellow Ferrari?
    And what does everyone think of the color combination?

    I understand op wanting an Auto 400......but my questions is why when anyone looking for "400/412", they seem to leave out the possibility of a 365 gt4 2+2? basically same car, other than most are carbed & manual.

    Bottom line is what is the primary reason to ask for a "400/412" yet NOT include "looking for 365/400/412".....as this is the thread heading and most people group these cars as "one" with differences; FI, auto etc. Thanks

    The owner says it was owned by either the Nieman or the Marcus of Nieman Marcus - he knows which one, but I can't remember. I think if you search for it here you will find an old video of it. Its definitely not perfect, but it is originally yellow.

    Yep. Definitely scary. But would be good for someone wanting a project! There's a lot of very interesting threads here on F-Chat where people are bringing dead cars back to their former glory. I hope someone takes this and restores it.

    Not for me (at this time). Too many projects already underway. And the Wife wants the garage back. Otherwise, I might have been interested in buying this, and putting it away for a future project. A V12 Ferrari for $12K, can't imagine we will see this too often.

    Kind of curious why the seller is in CA, that the car has the BAR sticker from the past, doesn't want to deal with the drama of BAR now, & offering the car 'As is, where is, & no warranty', why won't they let a resident of CA deal with the BAR certification post sale??
    They clearly stated that they're not doing that, so what gives :confused:

    I believe the CA law is that the Seller is responsible for the emission certification (so the paperwork to sell it to someone else in CA can't be completed before it passes the test).

    The market seems to have spoken on the Chequered Flag car. $25K or so bidding taps.

    Actually strong money if you look at the Hagerty values, where a solid #3 is sitting there or so.

    I am local and looked at it.

    I preferred the earlier style seats to the '84 I bought.

    But, honestly, exactly the same exterior condition as the one I bought, both had driver's seat issues, the one I bought has dash shrinking issues this one did not.

    Was not sure 4 new TRX tires and $5,000 in recent service was worth the $18K price difference. That's $10,000 to my math. Add the dash money, and I'm still at least $5K ahead with a car that passed smog in CA 40 days ago.

    Why don't you post a separate thread for that car? Having a 400i engine, it would appeal to those of us in this forum. Is there an advertisement somewhere with details and pictures? It sounds as if someone spent a lot of their time and resources creating that car.

    I've also seen this car and it shows very well.
    5 speed
    15 " wheels (not TRX)
    very well sorted and ready to go

    I copied the details:

    An incredible opportunity to own a rare 5 speed manual, V-12 Ferrari. It has excellent, perfectly straight, rust free bodywork and very nice paint. The leather interior has just the right 'patina' and the dash and roof liner are in very good condition. It has just had a comprehensive, documented mechanical overhaul...every system on this car is either new, newly rebuilt or freshly serviced. The motor is 'as new', having just been professionally rebuilt with new rings, new main, rod and thrust bearings, new flywheel, timing chain and tensioners, water and oil pump seals, bearings and Reynold tensioner. Cylinder compression is as it was when new. The cylinder heads received all new stainless valves, new valve guides, seats and seals. It also has new fuel injectors, fuel pumps and ignition wires....even the AC was overhauled and delivers ice cold air. The 5-speed gearbox was also overhauled and is 'as new,' with 5 perfect syncros. The clutch disc, pressure plate and throw out bearing are new. The suspension and brakes was also completely serviced, including all new front control arm bushings, shock bushings, tie-rod ends and the rear features new adjustable Koni self-levellers. The brake calipers were rebuilt and new pads were installed on the freshly resurfaced rotors. The exhaust system is new from front to back and includes Cerama chromed exhaust headers, new custom center sections and new Ansa rear silencers. The factory 15" magnesium wheels are freshly refinished and wear new Pirelli P4000's. If you've ever dreamed of owning a 5-speed, V-12 Ferrari, but didn't think you could afford it or were scared by the maintenance costs, then this is your opportunity. This is the ultimate family coupe, with a generous trunk and room for 4 adults. It's is ready for immediate delivery and comes with a brand new owners manual, a Factory workshop manual and factory jack roll. A binder containing all of the parts receipts and service pics will be included. This iconic example comes with our full backing and support
