    3765 LM was built with a standard Series I GTO triple scoop nose. During 1962 Le Mans 24 Hours, Mike Parkes put her in the sand (I think Graham Hill in a DB4GT cut him off, but, whatever). This was early in the race- maybe the 3rd hour. Because of sand ingestion, so the story goes, cooling problems ensued.
    As an attempt to keep racing, SF pit mechanics hacked a large opening in the nose where the 3 scoops had been. Some time after the race, a repair was made to clean up the sheet metal and this was when the slot came into being.
    When the car was restored in the late 1980s, the decision was made to adhere to the specification of the start of the '62 Le Mans. It was then that the slot was replaced by the original configuration of the 3 scoops.

    Bonjour

    I'm searching for the real diameter for the rear lights of GTO 64, 330 LMB, 250 LM, P4 and 275 GTB. Have they all the same rear lights ?

    Thanks

    Wow! You are really good. To be frank, I had forgotten the name of the car, like a lot of things...

    I have a Ferrari table flag from the 2005 Montreal GP I was going to throw away. It's yours!

    I had to cheat and do a little hunting for the specifics, but this is a pic I remembered. Thanks for posting. Gerald made a tremendous contribution to what I've learned, as he did for so many.

    Apparently, this is just one of the several images taken: it seems to place the scratching on the inside body skirt rather than under the top of left mudguard, as it should likely be. Scratching looks scarce and can not figure the function of rubber-metal buffer neither. Your opinions please.

    The V6 engine from the 246 (158-006) that Bandini (mostly) raced in 1966 is up for sale here in the UK. Was 006 a car from the Setton collection and was the V6 displaced by a 3-litre V12? I'm interested in how it came to be parted from the chassis.

    It's for a news story in the first edition of a new independent quarterly Ferrari magazine - 'Enzo' - to be published here in the UK.

    To bad they ferried the Lockheed R-6V Constitution to Opa Locka and scrapped it in the late 1970's.

    Notice the 4 cylinder motor in the third pic; could be a left over race motor from the 1954 553 F1 series, most likely a 2.5 liter. Notice the strange crankcase side and the horizontally placed magnetos. Larger velocity stacks than the 2 liter motors

    The valve cover shape tells us it is a 750 Monza or late 500 Mondial (Series II) engine. I seem to recall it is a Monza motor from discussions from many years ago. Whether it has horizontal or vertical magnetos or distributors is not critical , as a variety of front covers will fit the same blocks. I am sure it was built up of bits and pieces laying around the factory when they needed to power the wind tunnel.

    Dear Dyke,

    I too recall a discussion of this motor many years ago and do not recall the specific answer. I believe that the cylinder head with the wide included valve angle and flat topped valve covers could be from the 53 or 54 553 Formula which would match up with the horizontal magnetos, or the 750 Monza or the 857/860 Monza. The size of the velocity stacks rules out the 2 liter versions (500 Mondial Series 2 tipo 111, and the 53 553 F2) as these babies look to be either 50 or 58 DCOA Webers. The crankcase also leads one to the conclusion that this is indeed a bitsa. In those days nothing would surprise me.

    Best regards,

    Robert

    I love how any Ferrari that has been raced, suddenly becomes a Competizione model ... lol. It was/is just a 1962 250 GT Lusso that was raced a few small times. 4213GT was not a specially built competizione version.

    I guess I used to own an '76 Alfa Sud 1.3 Ti Competizione ... gee I wish I had added the competizione bit when I sold it ;) :D
