The original 365 P Tre Posti, this example debuted at the Paris Auto Salon in October of 1966. It was then sent on a world tour to show off its unique design. In July of 1967, it was acquired by Ferrari's New York concessionaire and also the head of the North American Racing Team (NART), Luigi Chinetti. He sold the car on to Marvyn Carton, on the condition that an air-conditioner would be fitted. This was the first clue that the thinly disguised racer would be a little too much for Carton, and would go on to return the show car within a year.

Chinetti subsequently sold the 365 P to his longtime friend and NART co-founder Jan de Vroom. Although certainly a more accomplished driver, he also struggled to drive the car on the road. Especially parking proved difficult due to the central driving position. De Vroom did exercise the car and also shipped it to the French Cote d'Azur. In 1969, it once again joined the Chinetti stable and has remained there ever since. Of the many cars he owned over the year Chinetti described the Tre Posti as his favourite, along with the 8C 2900 Alfa Romeo.

Still in highly original condition, with the exception of a re-spray with correct paint, the car has now been consigned by Luigi Chinetti Jr. to the 2014 Gooding Pebble Beach Auction. While no pre-sale estimate has been released, the spectacular show car and one of Pininfarina's absolute master pieces is expected to find a new owner for well into the eight-figure territory.
