I looked up the 2nd Edition of Simon Moore's "The Immortal 2.9", which describes 412028 on 7 pages (p. 254-260) with 13 pictures (sorry, I don't feel at liberty to reproduce them here). None of the 3 pictures shown in post #25 above are in Simon's book, but I get the impression that all 3 pictures are of the same car, namely 412028, at different points in its life.
Picture #2 seems to be the earliest picture -- when the car still had the original front bumper with a very characteristic V-shape below the radiator grille. On p.256, Simon shows a picture taken from a slightly different angle -- a picture that I believe to be from the same photo shoot.
Picture #3 shows the car when it was auctioned off in Tommy Lee's estate sale in 1950 with a different bumper and the spats removed/altered. The same picture appears quite small in a September 1950, Road & Track ad that describes the car as being with "new grey paint and blue leather upholstery" (the ad is reprinted on p.443 of Simon Moore's book).
Picture #1 probably shows the car in about December 1950 (or maybe in 1951), when it was owned by Peter Satori, who advertised it as "re-painted in Alfa red." Simon's book shows the car with same license number presumably in Tommy Lee grey (p.257) and red (p.258), and he describes the car as being featured on the cover of the October 1951 issue of Road & Track, with a story inside. A credit in the legend of the picture on p.258 gives me the impression that this picture (presumably the car in the b/w picture being red) may be from this Road & Track article.
The car changed hands and colors again (this time to a what appears to be a dark blue) when it was shown in 1995 at Pebble Beach and in 1996 at Villa d'Este. Simon mentions the car was shown on p.25 of the November, 1995 issue of Classic & Sports Car magazine.
Furthermore, Simon mentions the car was shown in the November 1938 issue of Alfa Corse (wrongly described as a "Mille Miglia" model) and, with color pictures, on p.400-401 of Automobile Quarterly, Winter 1965.
