    I made my first ever trip to Cavallino this year and had a great time!!

    I was taught how to spot the alloy cars by the longer drip rails above the doors. There was a 1967 red 275 GTB/4 alloy car s/n 9413 on display. Would anyone here know the history behind this particular car??

    Thanks in advance.

    Easier than that is the "A an C" pillar weld / seams that can be seen 20 feet back. Basically it makes the roof look like it was added on rather than being seamless as on the standard steel bodied cars.

    There are five and possibly eight invoiced alloy Daytona Coupe bodies that Scaglietti built and apparently fitted to production road cars simply to use them up that remain un-accounted for. (Just like Ferrari, Scaglietti never through anything away.)

    They too can be spotted by the external seams.

    Always thought someday, I would come across one or one would end up in our store... no such luck as of yet!

    Very likely unless one was crashed or damage that the owner would even know he had something different than the other Daytona owners.

    Cheers,

    Bill

    In 2004 it was in the S of France with a character called Jean-Jaccques Baille for sale at EU500k. I believe it went to USA in 2006. But where it was originally delivered, I don't know.

    I saw the car at Cavallino, and asked the owner if it was the Joe Pendergast/Don Andrews car, and he said he dident know, but it came from France. A bystander overheard and said it was not the Andrews car. In the early 70s there were 2 Alloy 4 cams( Andrews and Sam Hoffman) in South Florida, plus the Bruce Stiles NART which I recall as also an alloy car and the first one built.

    The car was sold new to the States. It was purchased back in the early 2000s by somebody called Casanova in France. I bought the car and sold it with T. Price to its current owner in the US. It was then in magnificent condition with a freshly rebuilt tuned up engine, driving superbly. The restoration was performed in Italy by marque specialists - Lupi for the leather, Franco for the engine etc. All to exacting standards.

    I know the car well. It was owned for many years by the Belgian collector (but Swiss-domiciled), Francois Leiser. While he owned it, it was restored by Garage Francorchamps.

    It had/has some issues with the shape of its nose. Additionally, it had/has incorrect front bumpers (i.e. the smaller ones from a 275 GTB short-nose).

    So I'm guessing that it was a No Sale?

    I do too.
    Originally sold by Chinetti to Bob Peak, the artist and designer in CT, he soon returned it to Chinetti.
