Complicated story:
There is some confusion regarding chassis #3077 and #3056. Most likely car #3072 was crashed badly at Caracas in 1957 driven by Joakim Bonnier. There's a thesis that #3056 was in Caracas as an experimental car with a V12 installed but did only practice. (See Motorsport Feb./2000 p76.)
Some claim that the chassis from #3077 was used to rebuild #3056 but most probably chassis 3077 was rebuilt with parts from 3056 and 3066.
