The first time I visited Shelton Ferrari in the middle 80's they had just received 3765 for restoration. During my frequent travels to Ft. Lauderdale I would see how the project was going and hearing how the potential value was climbing. The last time I saw it they had just finished it were getting ready to load it for transport to the FCA meet. A great car that was wonderfully restored.

Yes, how nice to see your car there, Oscar. When would this picture have been taken?

Early to mid 1970's. Pictures were taken by my father who sold the Monza to Ken H.

Dear Cliff,

Your father really had good taste in cars! Ken Hutchison also as he bought this Monza and quite some other interesting cars at that time. As I understood he was founder of the Ferrari Club in the US. That little car on the back of that pic is a 212 Export that he owned from 1964 to 1998!

Onno, answer is in Cliff's reply, although I estimated it earlier. The car is so easy to detect by its colour scheme, even in B&W.

ciao
Oscar

Excellent thread.. I love all the vintage pictures of these cars being used as cars back before the values became inflated to the point of the car now becoming a investiment and most likely never to be treated like they were back in the day..

Thanks for sharing the information and pictures..

Mark,

I think you underestimate current owners. Many cars are pushed hard these days irrespective of value and risk.
This opens other discussions as should these cars pushed that hard........

Pete,
The GTO was subject to a complete restoration by Al Roberts at Shelton Ferrari in Ft. Lauderdale, FL in the late 1980's by its current owner. Until that time, it carried that distinctive modification to the nose which was intended to increase cooling/airflow. It was restored to the original- which is basically the same nose as every other GTO (they all seem to have their own minor differences in bodywork). It was the subject of a cover story in Cavallino. If you go to their website, you can find pictures of it and a great article.

Best,
Dave

Looks like the same TR 500 as in the picture below it, only then in black.

Thanks Dave, what a pity, but I can understand this happening.
