    ...I just discovered this thread...thoroughly fascinating!!!..thank you all...Ferraris are “life” to me and this thread illustrates while I feel privileged to be associated with the great people in this thread...I often say I was born a generation too late as,unlike now,I would’ve been able to own cars like this!...I love ANY Ferrari but my heart lies with the vintage cars of this era...Andy,just think-you owned,drove,and enjoyed a car that most can only dream about now plus,on another level,you’ve been able to connect with so many other interesting people all because of a “car”!...as I said in my last post I’d run all this information by Kirk White who was the East Coast “Ed Niles”...big Ferrari trader back in the day that I’m sure all are familiar with...I’ve read a lot of chapters from his book “Don’t Wash Mine”...perhaps he may be able to uncover information pertaining to your car...also,Phil Tegtmeir who was at Algar back in he day might be of help...” throw enough stuff on the wall and something will stick”...thanks to ALL again who make up this great community...

    Correct Marcel. It was chartreuse at the time; later sold, crashed and eventually resurrected by Wayne Sparling.

    Love the line "We seem to be lousy with GTOs".

    Mr Gagarin's Alloy 275 GTB was not a Torque Tube car.

    I suspect that Andy's old car is s/n 8029.

    Hi, I know I'm late chiming in. I was reminiscing about some of my old cars and Googled my old 6-Carb Alloy's serial number 08157 and found this thread. I owned 08157 from around 1987 to around 1993 I think when it was sold to David Letterman through Miller Motorcars in Greenwich.

    I purchased 08157 from Nick Soprano of Motor Classics. He told me that the previous owner was Peter Livanos. I used to hang out and talk with Ed Jurist of The Vintage Car Store in Nyack, NY a lot. He showed me records that 08157 had passed through his hands in the late 60's in a trade for for a big block Corvette.

    Under my ownership the car underwent a total restoration by Berlinetta Motorcars and a color change to Fly Yellow it had been several shades of red over its lifetime.

    One unique feature of the car was that it had a lip around the rear fenders not unlike those on a Chairs and Flares Dino, but only about half the width. These did not look to have been done post factory.

    I hope this information helps somebody.

    As of 1984 this 275 was listed as owned by Earle W. Hartley, Jr., of Thomaston/CT.
    08157 was shown by you in September 1987 at the Garden State Fall Festival in Mendham, NJ/USA, and in 1991 at the National Ferrari Concours in Washington D.C., where it placed 1st in class.

    08157 doesn't appear to have a lip around the rear wheel arches, as pictured in LJK Setright's book Ferrari, when being tested at the Pirelli Proving Grounds, as posted by Marcel Massini here. Do you have any pictures to post?

    After reading PeteM1965"s post there's still hope that a former car dealer in Danbury, CT will chime in that he bought my car 1970 and still has a record of the serial number.
