    Dyke: I'm always very interested in seeing the build sheets for all Classic and (especially) Competition Ferraris to see what information can be gleaned from them about their original specification, numbering of drivetrain components and how they left the factory. I do also have quite an admiration and interest in the individual 275 GTB/C cars, which are real and proper racing Ferraris.

    ^^^ Interesting.

    From the 15th May, 2004 Bonhams Auction of 09027:

    Chassis '09027' then sold within the UK via racing driver Richard Bond and Graham Eden, to John Crowther and his son Douglas of Tatsfield, Kent, still in October 1967, now UK registered 'NJB 612F'. It appeared at Prescott hill-climb c.1973 and was damaged by Crowther, subsequent body repairs being entrusted to Wiltshire-based specialist John Giles of TT Workshops. We have spoken to Mr Giles who has kindly supplied us with copies of the relevant invoices, showing expenditure of c. £5,500 to repair the original body, replacing panels where required. The car was shown again in 1975, at the Spa-Francorchamps Ferrari meeting before - in February, 1978 - being sold by Mr Crowther to Frenchman Serge Dermanian in the USA.

    Where was that photograph from? 09027 has had many accidents. Do you know if Classiche have overseen a full rebody of 09027 in this last restoration?

    Prescott HC 1970.

    As for your second question I suggest to ask the current UK owner.

    Thank you, Maestro. Can you explain the B5 markings of the original body that were said to be present previously? If I knew who the owner was I would ask him. I'm not shy. :)

    The most easily seen B5 marking is on the firewall. You can replace the ENTIRE outer body with effecting this stamping.

    It would be good to know what the Classiche Red Book pages say regarding what major components are the originals and if any replaced.

    I have been looking at period photographs taken at Le Mans and on Mont Ventoux in 1966 before any accidents, and I think the new nose is still wrong. Furthermore if you are going to go with the LM livery, why not fit the spot lights and fly screen (which really looks like it should be painted metal) and add the brake cooling ducts it clearly had. And what's with the blacking under the nose it never had too !
