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.
