    Depending on the car the process is different. In the case of older cars with history records, we need to verify that all the parts are either original or correct for the car. In many cases, older cars have had replaced drivetrain components and with the certification process we need to verify the originality/correctness. We inspect the car and are able to determine if the parts are indeed either original or if not then they need to be correct for the car. We have to inspect everything from the block, carburetors, to small items such as bolts.

    Understood.

    I take it you are a Ferrari Classiche Authorised Centre?

    No. We are not. We prepare the car for the certification process. The actual certification is done through Ferrari Classiche.

    Yes.

    Why post at all?

    “Hey, look what we’re doing. But we need to protect our client’s privacy.”

    Classiche criteria attached. To my knowledge it has not been revised since this version, though I could be wrong.

    OMG ! Was not really paying proper attention. Penny just dropped with this last picture.

    Here is a picture I took of the car in the South of France, 25/9/2000, during a PPI I carried out for a client. The vendor was super nice and MOST hospitable. We had to stay the night and come home the following day. It was also VERY hot that day! I have obscured the registration number to hide the car's ID.

    I believe the OP stated clearly that he isn’t at liberty to divulge the serial number out of respect for his clients wishes, which obviously is, and should be, his first consideration.

    Clearly.

    But half of us already know, and I can figure it out with a little effort.

    I’m just asking to spare me the effort. PM if you like.

    Well, if half of you already know, than respect the man and stop badgering him about it. I, for one, give him credit for honoring his clients wishes. After all, the purpose of the thread was to offer up information on Classiche Certification preparation, which many would be interested to learn more about.
