    Everything about that shot just shows the level of work involved (with all of the cars).

    On a side note, the "garage" has become art in itself... :)

    As I observed once before...Amazing how something so muscle-y and badass can be so spindly underneath.

    Not much there, is there.

    Excuse me, but I'm a bit ignorant on a lot of what goes into these cars, but want to learn as much as possible. So, what are you pressure testing for?? Are you running fluids though the tubes??? Exactly what fluids are running through the frame and where??? It just doesn't look like you could move a lot through those small tubes.

    Fuel flows through the crossover from tank to tank. (Side to Side)

    Oil and water flow through the tubes that run front to back.

    See post 658.

    White rags stuffed in water and oil tubes.

    Like others, I'm amazed at the "spindly" appearance of the chassis, but when all the little pieces go together, just right, the result is very strong.

    IIRC, this car managed to weigh less than a GT40 by a substantial amount. Weight is a little less then 2000lbs?

    Hi Jim.
    Looks great....have you thought about measuring the raw chassis to get a
    true measured drawing out of it?

    Well...you know me.

    An actual blueprint would indeed be an interesting document to have on-hand, but what purpose would it serve other then comparing to factory documents and playing to replica builders? Curious because I really don't know lol.

    As I have two P3 chassis on hand hopefully I'll be OK should I shunt one and need a reference to repair one.

    I'll really try not to and over 38 years and 500K of driving exotic cars so far I've done very little damage but Murphy never sleeps so I remain vigilant.

    It makes the patriot in me feel proud to see some dutch parts used in this magnificent Ferrari.

    "Driving" is the key word. It's like the old Grace Hopper quote:

    “A ship in port is safe, but that's not what ships are built for.”

    Safe motoring. :)

    Thought I may take this one to the experts:

    Is it me or is RM Auctions in this presentation constantly showing pictures of 0856 at Le Mans 1967 when they obviously mean to show pics of 0858?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVKXFh0wqTY

    (perhaps this has been gone over before, but the search didn't bring me an answer. If it had, sorry!)

    As I wrote about years ago in the 0846 Papers Ferrari often swapped identities and chassis plates and re stamped things when it suited them.

    Right before the auction they announced that they had swapped the identities of 0856 and 0858 several times during the 1967 season.

    Thanks Jim, but now I am confused.

    All of my sources claim 0856 is the one with #24 and the yellow stripe (Ecurie Francorchamps, Mairesse and Beurlys), but RM claims that that particular car is 0858. So, which is it?
