    Sorry but I have no idea. I saw it driving around on the road. I never had the chance to talk to the owner.

    Interesting (factory ?) mods: Accented "blood groove", USDOT rear reflectors, straight(?) ear knock-offs, no antenna...

    Would make an interesting judging experience if this represents (and is documented ?) how it "last time left the factory".

    This photo does not show 12641.
    The photo was taken in the factory courtyard in Maranello, not in Modena. It is part of a series of press photos.
    The car in the photo is yellow with the black side stripe. Most probably 13893 which was completed on 2 November 1970.
    S/N 12641 was converted one year later only, on 10 November 1971.

    Thank you Sir, for clarifications.
    Regardless of S/N, I do find aforementioned details intriguing and wonder if any still exists in the car.
