Non-catalyst *** Non-adjustable suspension *** Sliding windows Chassis number '78036' was purchased new by 'Pink Floyd' guitarist David Gilmour at the same time as fellow band member Nick Mason bought his (chassis number '78122'). The musicians were photographed with a pair of F40s at Ferrari's Fiorano test track, confirming their order for the cars in the company of Maranello Concessionaires' MD Roger Maingot and Ron Stratton of Stratton Ferrari. The photograph was taken in July 1988, shortly after Pink Floyd's Modena concert during the 'Momentary Lapse of Reason' tour. Both Mason and Gilmour collected their cars personally from Maranello and drove them back to the UK (on Italian export plates). The two F40s were then displayed at the International Motor Show in Birmingham from 19th to 30th October 1988; '78122' was on the Ferrari stand and '78036' on the Pininfarina stand, registered as 'F58 SBF'. During the mid-1990s the car was owned in the UK by Mr Stuart M Bowler and registered as 'F40 REH'. Its last UK MoT test was carried out in 2006. '78036' ticks many of the boxes of interest to F40 connoisseurs, being an early, little used, non-catalyst model fitted with sliding windows and non-adjustable suspension. Following an engine bay fire in the late 2000s, the car was bought in August 2008 by a Norwegian enthusiast, Mr Dagffin Moe, as a project needing restoration. He commissioned Dino Service of Schagen, Holland, to carry out the restoration. Chassis restoration was undertaken in the UK by Mototechnique, while genuine Ferrari parts sourced in Italy and Belgium. The rebuild involved a total engine and gearbox overhaul; the installation of a specially made wiring loom to original specification; and upgrading of the engine management system. New parts fitted include the fuel injection system, inlet manifold, heat exchangers, engine sensors, front brake callipers, differential and gearbox housing, engine and gearbox oil radiators, ignition system, various body panels, doors (sliding window type), rear lights and grille, seats and safety belts, steering wheel, Perspex engine cover, rear under-body, air conditioning pump, and a set of tyres. In addition, suspension modifications were made by official Ferrari agent Kroymans of Hilversum in April 2017. Bills for the aforementioned work are on file. '78036' represents a rare opportunity to acquire a fine example of the last model to bear the personal imprint of the late Enzo Ferrari, created by him in the spirit of the legendary Le Mans-winning 250LM.
