Matsuda's Yellow F50, anyone know the SN?

Does anyone know the SN of Matsuda's yellow F50? How many F50s were made in Yellow?

I have 23:

But some people have said I'm wrong. Any ideas where I'm messing up?

There are a lot of things wrong with your register (no offence).

Both Matsuda F50 serial #'s are here:

If you'd like to talk to me about your register (i have one that has less cars but much more info) my email is:

chris @ e30evo.com

Remove the spaces

Btw, the yellow car is 103355. I have only seen pics of his yellow one and did not know he owned two. Does anyone have any pics of his other one or has he sold it?

He only had one F50. Thanks for the SN info. The link you posted is a bit out dated. I just received a list via a contact in Japan a day before this post, only 1 F50 and 3445 was sold almost one year ago.

I know our register has errors, it is difficult when there are so few willing to share information and corrections. However, it is still better than any public register on the Internet to date and will be better than anything anyone else tries to put together.

Again, thanks for the SN, I have a number of photos of 103355 that I personally took and would like to update them.

Are you saying that the car is not in his posession anymore?

Correct, only the Yellow F50 (103355) is still in his posession. It would seem that he also sold another of his 250 GTOs (3505GT), which leaves him with one 250 GTO

Yes, his green gto was sold a while ago through Duncan Hamilton (?) in the UK to Eric Heerrema in London

He no longer has 3445, it is now in the US.

I don't know about 4675, i have a feeling he no longer has it

3505GT must have been sold very recently, I just saw this car this year in Japan. 4675 is still owned by Matsuda and was displayed this year in Carmel, CA's Pebble Beach event.

Here is a nice photo of 4675 & 55237 together: http://www.ferrariforum.net/members/...to.php?id=1806

The link just give an overview of all Ferrari's ever owned by that owner. Which doesn't mean the cars are still owned by that person.

It ruins the car everytime the car is re-sprayed. Once the car is re-sprayed, you can no longer see the weave of the carbon fibre through it (the paint)
