Default 356B Carrera Abarth 1008--was it Hans Thulin's?

I like this article on the Abarth Carrera coupe in Excellence magazine
but before I write an article about Abarth Carreras wanted to see if it is agreed by the experts that the car is actually from the Hans Thulin collection, Thulin being a fugitive financier whose property was seized by the banks and sold.

Excellence :: Northern Light : 356B Abarth Carrera : page 4

In the story it says a Los Angeles based auto dealer went to Sweden and bought the car but I read in another forum that Thulin owned another Abarth Carrera so wanted to straighten that out.

Also the story is very entertaining in its description of the American dealer meeting his competition and besting them, I wanted to know if that's true. Not that I doubt their very learned reporter, it's just the confusion I have about two of these fabulous cars both being in Sweden. By the way there was a clean silver one at the Art Center College concours a couple of years ago, I wonder if that was the same one?
