    This was one of my fathers Ferraris back in the 1960s. (Apologies if I’ve posted this before, I’m older than the car)
    I have no info on the car since many of our family records were lost in a flooded basement . I do remember driving it though. I’ve always thought it was on of the best looking cars he had owned over the years.

    There are pictures of 3923 in Stan Nowak's Book Spyder California on pages 93 with New York license plate and on pages 176 and 177. He mentions that the car has been very protected and part of a very important American Ferrari Collection.

    I’m pretty sure this is the car my mother taught me how to drive a stick shift in . My dad didn’t have the patience to deal with me.
    She had me doing it in short order after a few stalls , bucks, and typical newbie mistakes.
    God bless her .
    We never considered this would be such a collectible car back then

    Was that in New Jersey (the house)?
    Or in Pennsylvania?
    I do not show your father's name in the history of 3923 GT. That's why I am asking.
    Must have been between 1965 and 1968.
