    Once again, the photo in post 244 does not show #6305 SF.
    It shows #7975 SF.

    6305 SF was originally Nero (black), 7975 SF was originally Marrone (marroon).

    Marcel, previously I thought that 7975 SF was originally delivered to Shah of Iran. So, Reza Pahlevi owned just one 500 Superfast, s/n 6605 SF?

    As a record of visiting the factory, I was given a catalogue. And the 500 Superfast in the catalogue was black with a beige interior and from memory had wire wheels. Just like the car being delivered (again from memory). I trust the catalogue car is still out there and was delivered to a famous customer.

    Marcel,

    Very well caught, but,

    Gioacchino, was Rossini, Gioachino (with one 'c') was Colombo. A most unusual spelling of the name.
    In Italian, it is 99% spelled with two c's.

    Kind of Marcel, or Marcello...:) Or 'Colombia' the country, when tons of people call it 'Columbia'.

    Regards, Alberto

    Did the last of the 500 Superfast cars have tipo 208 engines with 2 rather than 4 mounts?

    No engine in the car? Why is it sitting so high?

    I like the Verde Pino 365 BB #18181.
    This was a gift from King Hussein of Jordan to His Imperial Highness Shah Reza Pahlavi in 1974.

    In the first pic you can see a jack stand below the car, close to the rear wheel. I suppose they don´t move it too often, so it´s not a bad idea to prevent tyre deformation.

    From the following 1971 old advert posted in one of Greg bannishg's threads, in addition to the 2 RHD 500 Superfasts #6659SF and #6673SF, is there a 3rd 2+2 500 Superfast?
