Mid-engined 365p street cars

I recently came across the Rasmussen book on Ferrari and its showed the 3 seater mid-engined 365P street car, I think it was white, with a sunroof, that belonged to Agnelli. I remember when someone owned that car or the similar silver or black version with the stainless steel rear spoiler in Calif. My question is: did either of these cars go through a period of decrepidness before they were discovered as future classics? When I saw them decades ago they were clean and being driven. I am only asking because I am looking for examples of cars that were almost written off for some years, recognized as neither fish nor fowl, until saved by someone who recognized their future potential

That car has pretty much been treated as a one-off classic. A couple to look into were the 408 and Pinin, Ferrari's four door. I have seen photos of both languishing in a junk pile behind the factory. The Pinin was restored and is being auctioned with an expected price of ~$0.75M.

Marcel Massini can give you much fuller details.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

We stumbled across the Pinin on our FLEE trip whilst in Modena. It was in the back of a garage that we wandered into to have a look around. Quite the find.
I don't have any pictures of it now, but I'm pretty sure some of my fellow FLEEers will have some.

Ferrari's: 360 Modena, 550 Maranello

Barry- Those would probably be great for his book. For quite a while, Ferrari had little interest in the historical value of their show cars and one-offs. That has changed, obviously.

Another car with an interesting history is Jim Glickenhaus' Dino Speciale. He can provide tons of dicumentation on that one.

There are two 365P's; 8815 and 8971.

8815 is owned by Edgar Bensoussan in France.

8971 has been owned by Luigi Chinetti, jr. since new.

The 365P in LA was with Bud Keeney.

Anybody have Luigi Chinetti Jr. e-mail?

I found some address in Stuart FL but does anybody have an address or e-mail for him? Need to ask him a couple of historical questions about the Peak 275P.

Anybody know what Bud Keeney sold his 365P for , what year , and to whom?

I get a little confused with the passage of time. I saw the car 30-40 years ago. There was a black one in Calif. with a red stripe in a groove trail and a huge stainless steel rear spoiler and a sunroof, three seater.
And then a silver one, can't remember the details. One was bujilt for Giovanni Agnelli and had some sort of light clutch because he had a bad leg.
Are these cars still being shown at concours?
Love to hear the SN's and details.

Anybody know why they were built? I can see Agnelli ordering one and getting what he wanted, maybe Fiat had already bought Ferrari by then but who ordered the other one originally. Who was he that he had equal clout to Agnelli?
Thanks for any historical tidbits
