On Coco Chinetti's ex-Bob Peak custom 250P
I have been trying to track the history of his silver gull winged coupe that once graced the cover of Car & Driver.
Apparently it had a real LeMans racing history.
It ran in various races with three different engine sizes in one race or another.
It had the Bob Peak designed Michelotti built gulling body when it was shown at the New York Auto Show. But what I am trying to find out is , when it was shown, was it there just to show the capability of the Chinetti-Peak design team and take orders for other custom Ferraris, or was the silver gulling version SN0812--actually for sale? I have seen the brochure on ebay but it only sells the capabilities of this new design team and doesn't have a price for the car.
I guess later on the body was removed (does it still exist) and the car sent to Italy with two others for restoration to original style bodywork. That's when Ferrari SpA confiscated all three , alleging they were fakes, and Coco fought them in court and won and Ferrari had to give them back.
I'd also like to hear any opinions on what the car is worth today (I am saying $4 million) and if it would be worth more or less with the silver gulling body re-installed, presuming it is still existent.
