Jimmy's ex Daytona suddenly for sale in Switzerland

I was surprised to see Jimmy's ex Daytona to have found its way back to Switzerland thru an add published first time today. This Plexi Daytona (link below) is offered by the official Ferrari Dealer in Geneva, Modena Cars SA.
Mr. Forgione, the head and owner of Modena Cars informed me that the car came from Switzerland to Japan, then to Symbolic Motor Cars and from there directly to Switzerland. Interesting how fast these days the cars changes the continents.
Price asked is Swiss Franc 400' as the car is now, or 430' with Ferrari Classiche, serviced and clutch done. Mr. Forgione also instructed me that the engine has been changed in the 80's and that the car therefore has a type correct but not original engine. Classification should not be a problem because of that. So anyone looking for a Daytona with a well known history trail...here it is:

FERRARI 365GTB/4 DAYTONA, Occasion, Benzin, 48'000 km,CHF 999'999 - AutoScout24

Actually not, as it seems that Classiche is ready to certify if the engine is only type correct.
I personally wonder if Jimmy was aware of the fact that his long time Daytona had another engine in it. As much as I believe to remember, he bought the car from Guikas in France (GTC), but I'm not sure about that.

I have seen a Dino that went through Classiche and it was determined it had the wrong engine. The hardbound Classiche book had a checkbox on a page near the rear with a line item for correct/incorrect engine. This one had Incorrect engine checked.
