    The link's not working on my computer but I assume you are talking about the "California Spyder" at Lime Rock Park. This is Mike Sheehan's car and is actually s/n 0147E, originally a 212 Vignale Coupe, that was rebodied to a California Spyder in 1965 by Drogo. The car is RHD and is much smaller than a real California Spyder. More info in an article in a past Cavallino, don't have the number handy at the moment though

    Thank you for the quick response. Does Michael Sheehan still own this car?

    I believe so - he brought it to Concorso Italiano. xs10shl and I were trying to figure out what it was. It is definitely narrower than a regular Cal spyder, and the rear end is odd. Now I know the story. Thanks!

    ps. - he also brought his Daytona Competizione replica that he vintage races.
