    I was invited to show one of my cars at The Concourse d'elegance of America near Detroit 2018. I took these quick photos of the "Superfast'? or SuperAmerica?

    Sorry gentlemen, I'm more knowledgeable regarding Maserati models, so I'm not exactly sure on this one. I spoke with the owner for a few minutes, nice chap. I didn't get the number on this one....but I'm sure Marcel knows the number. Fantastic machine!!!!!

    500 Superfast Series 2 #8459 SF. One of 8 RHD cars produced, 7 of which still exist and one of only 2 RHD Series 2 versions.

    Absolutely awesome and very special car, restored by the best in Modena. Got to be the best 500 Superfast in the world.

    Beautiful car and surely restored by famous companies. Just strange to mention it was done as original without any upgrades and then to see modern connecting rods and a key ring from the late 80s or 90s in the video?

    Red is not a great color for the 500SF, but I still think they are awesome!

    Now that would be an appropriate color for a 500SF! Any period pictures?

    When I knew 7817SF, she was Rosso Revendita.
    So much nicer now in her real color.

    I have posted this picture before elsewher, but I think it's better posted here. I just happened on it while running errands one Saturday in autumn of 2018. I just took this one picture and don't know the details.

    Last Sunday 6267 was displayed at the Concours Soestdijk, The Netherlands. I took pictures of the chassis and engine numbers. I'm still a bit confused about the correct tipo designation. What are the differences between the 330 GT chassis (571) and 500 SF chassis (578)?

    Marcel, you write "Chassis No. 6267 SA", but as you can see on the chassisnumber plate it says 330 GT? So shouldn't it be 6267 GT?

    You did not post a photo of the chassis number........

    Factory build sheets clearly say 6267 SA.
    Engine number is 454, type 209 (330 GT, a 4 liter, not 5 liter).

    What does the actual chassis stamping (not the plate) say, 330 GT or 500 SF?
