    Gentlemen,
    I am working on a 64 Ferrari 300GT 2+2 for a customer who unfortunately has misplaced two parts he removed many years ago. One being the driver's side turn signal/marker light lens and the other being the drivers exterior door mirror. Any ideas on where I could find these? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I believe the marker lens is the same for both sides.

    Thank you,
    Jeff

    Mr. Fiat has the door mirror and side marker light, I don't think they have the turn signal lens though. The 330 GT did not come with a door mirror from the factory, but they were often fitted by the dealer on request of the customer when new. This mirror is generally considered "correct" -> http://mrfiat.com/ferrari-250-275-330-365-side-view-mirror.html

    Would love to hear from Darren, who started this thread on a very valiant mission.

    That is a huge help... thank you! I have seen several cars with and without the door mirror, always wondered which was correct... thank you for the information on that.

    Mirrors were seldom factory installed. Here's an appropriate mirror:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ferrari-250-275-330-365-Side-View-Mirror-New/163041448699?hash=item25f60712fb%3Ag%3ATUQAAOSwVFlUB3je&_sacat=0&_nkw=ferrari+330+mirror&_from=R40&rt=nc&LH_TitleDesc=0
    Or a Talbot mirror.

    The front lens is PF part number 242.82.160.0.0.

    Darren gave up a few years ago and sold off all his 330 accumulations to GTO Engineering.

    Sorry to hear that, he was a miracle worker with finding damaged "beyond hope" parts and bringing them back to perfection. Hope he is doing well.

    Very sorry to hear that news... I doubt he just 'gave up' given his travails.

    Thanks for the word, Kerry.
    That's distressing. Darren was a wonder in the determination, accomplishment and detailing of his project. I hope his health problems are in the past and I sincerely hope the sale of his 330 was a financial boon for him.

    Given there were posts earlier in this thread positing questions about where a chassis identity 'lives' (not in the literal sense), I thought I'd share this post from the DVLA (in charge of registrations / vehicle database in the UK).

    I asked very specifically about someone cutting out a section of chassis with the stamping to assume an ID, and was told in no uncertain terms that the *original* cars keeps the legal identity regardless:
