    I would guess, Pete likely isn't old enough to have taken it himself 54 years ago.

    84mm bore (unchanged), 74.5mm stroke = 4954cc.

    De Dion rear axle and rear mounted 4 speed as well. Better power, handling and balance = PLUS!

    Yes. Very often claimed to have been 0357GT, which was not even near completion at this time. Best wishes, Kare

    Sorry to resurrect this old thread but wasn't 0368AM Beige in these photos? Before it got repainted to blue for Mas Du Clos?

    I brokered this car to Mas du Clos from Steve Pitcairn; it was dark blue at that time (1981).

    Thanks Ed. Do you know if the car was beige while at Pininfarina but then repainted light grey before the new owner took delivery?

    Does anyone know the original color of 368AM? Thanks.

    Another question, any rationale as to why most berlinettas have twin throat carbs? Obviously, 0358AM was born to be a racer and it has the twin carbs. Thanks.


    You can tell some planning went behind 0378AM in making it a road car, whereas 368AM seems to have been converted in a hurry.

    Is it possible the car pictured at Pininfarina was beige in color, prior to being re-painted and delivered in the max meyer light grey color 015702????
    To me, it seems the car is a lighter color (creme or beige color)in that picture posted in post #14. Lighter then a light grey. Light grey, to me, would be closer to the color of the wheel color.. I know it is a black and white picture and hard to tell but, it's possible?

    Maybe Marcel knows for sure?? Original color at Pininfarina, in the black and white picture?

    Ah, it's good to have this thread surface.
    I'd take a 375MM over any GTO any day. And then, of course, I'd take 472AM over all 39 of the GTO's any day.

    Hi, I'm making a model of the Carrera Panamericana #23 car
    Seems that on the rigth side it had still the wind deflector as in the Le Mans race.
    Seems to me that is a fixed device, but the screw position let me think there is something strange.If the position is fixed the screw must be as in my drawing(B)..or not?
    Furthermore the screw top seems not pass trougth the glass.
    Please help,
    best regards
    Alessandro

    ps sorry for my bad english

    Hi, many thanks!
    You know if this device is made by glass or plastic?
    All the best,

    Hi,I try other posts about this question,I'll try here!
    I know that the pristine Ferrari engines was the work of this two grat men.
    You can easily recognize the engines by the number of bolts on the engine covers: six for the Colombo's engine and seven for the longer Lampredi block.
    Lampredi engine was 5 inch longer to allow bigger cylinder..but anyone know the external sizes of this blocks?
    From the pics (never in the same perspective!)or from the bore-stroke is not easy to mach the exterior sizes and I would need the rigth size to make models of them.
    Thanks in advance,
    Alessandro

    sorry for my poor english!

    Your English is better than my Italian.

    Looks like a spacer designed to maintain the gap in the airdeflector. I'm assuming that the screw does go through although the pic is not clear enough to show it.

    Should we assume that you're talking about 375 MM only, not also 375 America (most of which were LHD)? How about the 375 Plus Cabriolet 0488AM, which is LHD?
