Silverstone auction : 1978 Ferrari 400 RHD Manual

Another advert with a great photo shoot. Only adding it for the records to capture the first owner. Apparently it was already sold earlier this year via a Silverstone auction.

The 400 GT offered here, chassis number 26265 was built in November 1978 and ordered by Brighton Car Concessionaires to be finished in Silver Grey with black striped red leather. It was specified with air conditioning, electric windows, twin mirrors, and a radio. They sold the car in June 1979 to its first proud owner, a Mr Claridge who was a prominent Ferrari and Frazer Nash collector and who already owned a 275 GTB, 250 GTE, 275 GTB4 and Dino 246 GT. On delivery of the 400,  he instructed Lancaster Ferrari to rustproof the car and the original Ziebart guarantee and bungs are still present.Invoices in the file show that Maranello Concessionaires serviced the car until Mr Claridge’s death in 1995 and a V5 Certificate, dated February 1996, indicates that the Ferrari was then transferred to the estate who instructed a broker to arrange its sale.
