      There is quite a bit info on 15773 in this Registry.
      I might have mentioned this a while back on a different thread: I had seriously considered 15773 three years ago when I was shopping for a C/4. It was pretty much a toss-up between that and the one I eventually got (15873). Asking price at that time was $117K.
      The exterior color of 15773 is what really grabbed me. I think it's very classy. In this Registry, the car is shown with a gray interior and a black interior; the gray photos are earlier, the car was reupholstered in black.
      I had a chance to meet the former owner, John Parrott, for dinner while I was on a business trip to Knoxville. Great guy.
      I also checked out the rumor that the car was originally purchased by Frank Sinatra for his daughter Tina. I went on the Sinatra Family website and posed the question, and within a day got a response from his other daughter, Nancy. She said she called Tina to confirm that Tina's Ferrari was not a C/4, but a Dino (light blue, bone interior). I relayed that info to the listing dealership and they wisely pulled the Sinatra reference from their ad.
      Regards,
      Bill

        Thanks for the Sam for the heads up. Its clear that I have been remiss in populating the registry with data and photos on 15189. I will do that this week.

          There is a lot of information on this car because it has been for sale many many times. Sports Car Company, eBay, Worlwide Collectors. It was the first C/4 I saw in person when I was getting interested in the model and classic cars in general. It was in La Jolla in 2011 in an underground parking garage. Seemed nice but I had no idea what I was doing so didn't pursue it actively. Since then I noticed the Sinatra rumor debunked. Then I so happened to get the below email in September of 2012, right after I had purchased 15661: >Hi Ben, My friend, Steve Levy, informed me of your quest for a 365 GTC/4. I have attached a photo of an available car and notes on the car are below. Please let me know if this car interests you. Thank you.

            15773 just sold at Gooding (Scottsdale) for hammer price of $225K (pre-sale estimate was $175-$225). If buyer's fee is typical 10%, then total paid was $247.5K. No one would open the bidding at 100K, so they started at 50K and worked up from there.

              It looks like belatedly the monetary value of cars is approaching what we know they are worth
              Check that your insurance cover is adequate for their increased valueI.
              I already increaded mine last January
