    Nice article, but not 100% . Yes Ferrari did install that interior in an effort to sell the car way back when.

    When did Ferrari take back ownership of the car? I'd have thought Ferrari's only efforts to sell the car would only have been when the car was new. Or did they install the leatherette interior for an owner who was having difficulty selling it?

    Many near new Ferrari's especially the race cars, very high end road cars and well connected owners would have their cars rebuilt or at least serviced by Ferrari and sold via Ferrari's network of clients and friendly dealers. 3647GT had an accident at the 1963 Tourist Trophy and likely needed a repair at Maranello and if Prince Zourab Tchkotoua had no further use, Ferrari would have sorted a sale to Boffa and any necessary repairs.

    There are many pictures and posts about the first 3 accidents in the above list, but what damage was caused at the 1965 Targa Florio?

    Do you have any proof that Ferrari actually did this in the case of 3647GT?

    Your two first photos show #3705GT during the TF 1963. Same n°112 but different location and only two side openings.
