Sammy Davis Jr - Ferrari 400 Automatic VIN21439

This purchase agreement was brought to my attention:

I wasn't able to find out much more on his car, no pictures either. Apparently it was offered for sale on Ebay some years ago. On FChat I read its currently residing in Austria, not sure if that's still the case.  Another member of the Rat Pack, Dean Martin, was also a Ferrari 400 owner. 




The catalogue does mention a remarkable story about a Ferrari watch being found in the car. The only close related watch I could find is this one. But clearly that's a different one ...


Sammy Davis Jr - Cartier Pasha A gift from fellow “Rat Packer” Frank Sinatra the watch was engraved with the message “Sammy, I Luv Ya, F.A.S.” It was sold at auction for $12,600 in 2009. Source. He can also be seen wearing an Heuer Monaco on a trip to Vietnam to entertain the troops before Steve McQueen made the Monaco famous in the film Le Mans.
