    I think 002(C) is the best name to call it without starting other new discussions...;-)

    I think Jim has milions of photos of every part of his car in every moment of its life since he owned it (and before)...and I don't think he would hide any photo if we ask him to see them...

    @Jim: I'm not you...so obviously you can hide everything you want ;-)

    ...
    I've just realized that IF Aardy is right, and 002C was 03C in 1947, my theory I've discussed before in this thread must be reviewed (Michael should be happy...).
    But IF 03C was renumbered 002C we can discuss the possibility of a previews story of 001S, maybe with s/n 01C or 02C...
    But IF...

    Let's go Aardy!
    We wait for you...

    All the Best Wishes Mr.Napolis!
    Obviously is interesting what all the "Ferrari Chat" guys think and discover about old Ferrari's storyes, but we cannot speack for years about ....."numbers"!
    For me you are the most accurate and expert Ferrari Sport cars owner....my feeling to your pics is that I'm seeing the true image of P3/4 or 002....even better of original photos..!
    Your subtle attention to the tiny things make your work a state of art of any project you start.
    As in your words...is the lovely shapes, the sounds, the emotions that make a Ferrari.
    In the hurry of races they were often left as garbage...forgetting the storyes of the drivers and mechanics that give their life for a victory.

    Who cares of a number stamped over a gearbox?
    The true is that many may have this emotions again, tanks to your work and passion, so I'm gratefull for all the new lives you will give to those cars.
    They are at home with you....
    Alessandro

    Mr. "Smiley Face" has a theory. Remember 03/10S. Mr "Smiley Face" thinks that this is the car that later became 03C. Or was it the other way around????. Not,,,,just one man'spinion tongascrew

    Maybe I'm crazy, but is it impossible that in 1947 the chassis had not any number stamped?

    They weren't built for a commercial purpose, so the chassis didn't need a number on them, maybe Ferrari's men could recognize the three cars with other methods at that time...or with a badge somewere which was removed...

    Maybe the number 002(C) was the first on Jim's car, but before the car was "called" 03C.

    Anything is possible but I have never seen any credible proof that a Ferrari "03C" ever existed.

    Statements like: "I have it but can't show it" don't impress me.

    So is true that the 125GP that ran in Torino in 1948 driven by Sommer with #28 was stripped down by Ferrari?
    Does any of it still exsist?
    What serial number would this have been in this picture? Image Unavailable, Please Login
