    The RHD fourcam 09897 is nice. However, the color is incorrectly described as Cambridge Blue. It actually is Azzurro La Plata.

    Please allow me to offer the following correction.

    Ron only bought the prewar stuff. I purchased all the Ferrari stuff from Florence Swaters, everything from 1952 forward such as original factory invoices, original factory delivery notes, original warranty cards, old titles, all the Garage Francorchamps invoices to their clients, thousands of papers, build sheets plus almost all photographs, tons of Belgian registration documents, etc.. I was NOT interested in helmets or trophies, Enzo's drivers licence, Dino Ferrari's personal letters, the doctor's letters about certain people, factory employee cards, greeting cards, Enzo's death notice and that kind of stuff.

    Please allow me to correct your correction. Ronald did not only purchase pre-war items.He also purchased many post-war items including dyno sheets for certain very early engines, road test reports for very early cars, driver contracts, early Enzo hand-written documents, internal race and testing documents, details of the Ford no-sale etc. Just a few of the items can be seen at the Ferrari: Under the Skin exhibition at the Design Museum in London

    Oh sure, and I have no problem with that. Not at all.
    As I said in my earlier post I had zero interest in that stuff.
