10/aug/15 - described by Gooding & Co as such:

"During this time (2006) the replica body was removed from the chassis and the renowned Carrozzeria Brandoli, under the close supervision of the Ferrari Classiche program, carefully restored the original alloy coachwork with great attention to detail and much sympathy. While this was being accomplished, the chassis was completely renovated, as were the engine, gearbox, brakes and suspension. As would be expected of a factory restoration, the work was performed with the intention of returning the car to the correct, as-delivered appearance and specification. Once the original body had been completely restored, it was reunited with the chassis and the interior was restored to as-new condition."

At the time Dr. Gerhard Schoenleber of Fuerth/Germany bought 2845GT, he got the original title of 2443GT as well from Von Wegner by incident. 

After Schoenleber was fed up with crashing 2845GT in the many historic races he had attended so far, it is rumoured that a replica 2845GT was build ordered by Schoenleber in the mid-80's using the original title of 2443GT !

Maybe this was the car crashed many times then in forthcoming historic events such like the OGP. Anyway, one thing is for sure: Comparing the pictures of the SWB entered by Schoenleber in all those historic events, one will notice that he entered a SWB at one time with flared wheel arches and at another time without them. At one occassion his SWB had wipers and at another event the wipers were removed and the other way round. Does this make any sense with one and the same car ?

Further more, when Schoenleber sold his car to SMC via Martin Eyears there was reportedly some legal dispute after the car arrived in the States due to the fact that (according to SMC) the car did not arrive in the same configuration as inspected before the purchase. This resulted in an outside court settlement and the return of the car back to Schoenleber.

Today, one can see Schoenleber's son using a SWB-replica in historic events.
