    All these years I have thought 0358AM was the only one for me, but now that I see 0472AM... my heart is melting.

    Indeed. One of my favorites too. It would be stunning in the original colors.

    I've heard that 456 was originally a Champagne color. Anyone here know for sure? See top left photo in post #42...

    Absolutely! Those two-tone colour schemes of yore were beautiful. Great cars, thanks everyone for the photos.

    Thanks, from me also, for the pic of 0368. I brokered that car to Pierre, and remember it as "streetized" with bumpers. Is my memory OK or not?

    Another very cool 1950s Ferrari. I guess I'm even older than my age, as nothing after the Daytona has any appeal for me (except for some sports-racing cars)

    You can see #0368AM with the original bumpers in post #14 of that thread.

    This one has to be the most lovable Ferrari. I can imagine it being Enzo's personal gift to Liberace.

    Same sentiments here. There is no substitute for beauty.

    Was there any development on the mechanical side during the production of the 375, or were they all identical?

    I think the 375+ was basically a bored out 375MM, and there are no other differences....but I may be mistaken..

    The 1954 Le Mans winner is called a 375+ in many references. I believe the chassis number is 0396AM

    What a bizarre setting to display these cars! (post#59)
    What's the story behind these photos?

    Yes, originally light blue.

    I know that this image belongs to Peter Vack. Is/was Gerald his father?

    I believe that is the lobby of the Gstaad Hotel that Bonham's uses.........from the carpet and interior furnishings...maybe Marcel can confirm.

    It certainly is.
    This picture is from the 2002 auction where the ex Bob Wilke 0476 AM failed to sell with a high bid of CHF 1,300,000.
