Chassis: 1004
One of the five works 512 S Ferraris lined up for the 1970 Daytona 24 Hours, chassis 1004 was entrusted to Jacky Ickx and Peter Schetty. After starting fifth on the grid, the race ended early when Ickx crashed. The car was returned to Maranello where it was repaired in time for the Monza 1000 km. This time Schetty was joined by John Surtees and finished the race in third behind a sister 512 S and the victorious Porsche 917 K. Chassis 1004's final contemporary outing came at the Targa Florio, where Nino Vaccarella and Ignazio Giunti finished third overall and first in the 5.0 litre class.

As the works team switched to the revised 512 M, chassis 1004 was set aside with some of its parts used as spares for other 512s. For reasons unknown, the chassis was re-labelled 1012 before it was sold to American collector Manfred Lampe during the second half of the 1970s. He completely restored the car to 512 S specification and retained the car for over three decades. In 2011, he brought the 512 S to the Ferrari Classiche to have it certified. Upon close inspection, modifications were found that were unique to the repair of chassis 1004 after Ickx' crash at Daytona. With its identity corrected to 1004, American collector Peter Read acquired the 512 S in 2012. It was subsequently shown at Pebble Beach and raced at several major events on both sides of the Atlantic.

Through British dealer Girardo, it was sold to a Swiss historic racer in 2017. Like the previous owner, he has campaigned the car regularly at events that included the 2018 Le Mans Classic.
