dean Paul Martin's 412P-SN 0850
I saw this yellow car coming down Sunset Strip about 30-40 years ago. Recently I found out where he got it -- he bought the car from the Belgian distributor of Ferrari--Jacques Swaters. In going through websites about the 412 and P3/4 (which are confusing and contradictory) I thought I saw two prices mentioned for what he paid for it, one was $8000 and the other $30,000. Did anyone ever hear what Swaters sold it for? I understand Martin then had it customized a bit but that wasn't the worst of it, he apparently crashed it at one time or another, maybe before he sold to Paul Pappalardo. I met young Martin while he was at a body shop with a smashed Mangusta, I knew he had previously smashed a Vallelunga, his final smash was in a figher plane hitting a mountain
I would be grateful for any news of what this car might have been advertised/sold for before it hit the collector car circuit
