    Boudewijn post this pic in the thread "Black Ferrari pictures". For me the story of 0363GT, 0381GT, 0663GT, 0999GT is very complex. Someone can give explanations ? Is this car really 0381GT ?
    Thanks, Gilles

    Thanks ZJPJ, yes I have checked Barchetta.cc.
    In this site the car below is 0363GT then 0381GT. 0381GT is now 0663GT (with 0363GT engine ?) and 0663GT is now 0999GT. And I read somewhere (Perharps in Ferrarichat ?) that here is another car with s/n 0381GT ?
    So, now is this car 0363GT, 0381GT or 0663GT ???

    The information on Barchetta.CC is incorrect - the car is indeed 0381GT

    At this moment it is shown at the exhibition in 'The Gallery' in Brummen -

    In Cavallino 94 of 1996 page 35 "Una storia particolare" the owner of this car since 1977 Dries Jetten explains why his car is 0363GT and not 0381GT.
    In short: 0363GT was heavily accidented in the first weeks of its life. The car was returned to the factory for repair. It returned with another Pininfarina body job number 13944. Ferrari historians related this body job number originally with 0381GT. In 1959 0363GT came to the Netherlands, when it was discovered its S/N had been changed to 0663GT, reason unknown. In 1977 it was bought by the present owner. He himself at first thought he had bought 0381GT. In 1993
    Mr.Swaters of Ferrari Belgium convinced him he had 0363GT.
    Italian historian Adolfo Orsi researched the issue and confirmed Mr.Jetten has 0363GT, while the real 0381GT lives in Italy.
    S/N 0663GT was originally a 1957 250 GT with a PF special Competizione Spider body: the Leon Dernier Spider. It was later renumbered by the factory to S/N 0999GT, a 250 GT Spider built in 1959.

    Thanks Boudejwin, happy to see you again.
    I'm beginning to understand now. But nobody have a pic of Italian 0381GT ?
    The black car in the pic has S/N 0663GT on it, now, or another ?
