    I have just become the very proud owner of this vehicle, It is presently under going some minor work, and as soon as it's complete I'll be happy to post some pictures. It'll be shipped from the US in April back to UK were it once resided in the early 1990's.

    Although a fairly comprehensive histroy has been provided I would appreciate anyone's knowledge of this car, and particularly anyone photo's ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Steve

    I did some work on 09063. It had been restored in the UK. The brake pipes were incorrectly replaced with copper instead of copper plated steel. I replaced all the copper pipes with copper plated steel.
    New splined distributor drives were installed in the camshafts when the motor was rebuilt in the UK. Unfortunately, the oil holes in the cams were blocked by the new drives causing damage to the cylinder heads and cams. We repaired the damage to the heads and cams. Thats what I remember off the top of my head. If you are interested, I can look back through my notes to see what other work was done.

    Thanks for all your kind....ish....Comments, I agree with the custodian point of view, I certainly feel like a 'caretaker' rather than an owner, All Ferrari's as precious as the next and all of them SHOULD be cherished.

    I hope to do the 275 Tour this year if everything goes according to plan ???

    Thanks Again,

    Steve

    Hey all,
    I posted this in GFD, but maybe it will do better here: what's the deal with the GTB/C side pipes? I have seen some with and some without, and it's definitely one of the only Ferrari Berlinettas I remember seeing with side exhaust pipes.

    Steve,
    I confirmed that #9063 is sitting in my friends Showroom on Superior St. in Newport Beach as of 4/8/2004. He has no intentions of selling it. You quoted your VIN# 9073.
    AM I CONFUSED HERE?????

    hmm... 9073 is also a GTB/C... but it's not the one pictured in this thread that Armen's friend seems to own.

    Armen, I'm pretty sure Steve is talking about 09063. After all, that's the car he's posted pics of and he's even referred to it as "being owned by a certain B. Ecclestone in the 90's." ?????????????????????

    which means that either Steve or the Newport Beach guy is mistaken. Steve? Armen?

    I believe this is Harley Cluxton at Daytona circa 1970. I do not know if this is the same car as displayed in the previous post.

    Hi Jim,

    This is 9063 at the 24 hrs of Daytona 1970 driven by Cluxton/Tatum entered by Chinetti. It was 30th on the starting grid and the car DNF because of overheating.

    Best
