      It was Gooding. Here's the link. Seems like prices are all over the board. I presume $561,000 is a new record high? >>>Unlike many other examples, this 365 GTC/4 boasts a limited roster of keepers from new. Hilary Raab’s volume on Ferrari serial numbers mentions 15933’s first owner as Mr. Albinus. It was delivered new in July 1972 via Jacques Swaters’ Garage Francorchamps, the famed Belgian Ferrari dealership. Lt. Col. Bill L. “Billy” Story, who was then stationed with the US Army Air Corps in Europe, became the second owner of 15933 in 1974. An enthusiastic Ferrari owner, Lt. Col. Story is the grandfather of Bill Story Jr., of Ferrari of Newport Beach. Following Lt. Col. Story’s retirement from military life, the Ferrari relocated with him to Georgia. The consignor, a member of the US Congress from 2005 to 2015, acquired the car in May 2008, and its restoration soon commenced. The leather interior surfaces were restored in 2008 soon after the congressman acquired it, with the virtually irreplaceable, factory-original mouse-hair dash treatment retained. Completed in 2014, the V-12 engine and gearbox were rebuilt by Rod Drew of Costa Mesa, California. The body, chassis, and suspension work were performed by expert Mike Regalia, who also attended to the vehicle’s reassembly, with the final work completed in 2015. Just before it was acquired by the consignor, 15933 also received certification by Ferrari Classiche. With less than 28,000 km indicated on the odometer and original colors inside and out, 15933 is offered complete with the all-important Ferrari Classiche Red Book and more than $300,000 in restoration receipts; the original and complete set of books; tools; a sales brochure; a CD containing more than 400 photos of the restoration; and several boxes of miscellaneous original parts. As such, 15933 is one of the finest of its kind and ticks all the boxes for an outstanding and rare classic V-12 Ferrari in a gorgeous package.

        You could drive a truck through the spread of C/4 prices at the Monterey auctions. Besides Goodings freshly restored $561K car, Bonhams sold a '71 car for $324K and a '72 for $253K, both all in. Between Anamera, Autosports Design and Driver Source there are at least 15 C/4's currently for sale around the world. A year ago there were 6 showing. Amazing how the price jump has brought out cars.
