- While its first owner is not known, by the early 1970s, the car was in the custody of Swissair pilot Rolf Schneeberger of Dietlikon, Switzerland
- In 1977, the car was sold to Nobil Kassataly, an American living in Switzerland.

- Originally built as a European-specification example with power windows and a five-speed manual transmission, finished in Bianco (20414 A) and Rosso (VM 3171).
- Manufactured in March of 1966, the car was dispatched to Rugico S.A., the official Ferrari distributor in Spain with locations in Barcelona and Madrid. Subsequently, the car was sold to its first owner in Spain that same year. While the car’s early history in Spain is not known, it was purchased by Fulvio Sperone in Moncalieri, Italy, in July of 1985.
- It is believed that the car remained with him for the following 15 years, as its ownership trail picks up again in early 2001, when ownership was transferred to Mrs Angela Rubeo, also of Moncalieri.
- By this time, the car had been refinished in dark blue. It was sold in November 2002 to another female owner, Maria Sterpeta Francavilla of Torino. The following year, it is noted that the car was involved in an accident and the damage to the passenger-side front of the car was repaired shortly thereafter in Italy.
- More recently, the interior has been fully reupholstered and the car presents quite well in its attractive colour scheme of Blue over Rosso leather.
