    I love that 250 TR GTE Coupe! I always though it was one of the best looking Drogo designs... And MAN! did they have some dogs!

    Photos #1 and #4 show REPLICAS of Drogo rebodies and have NO relation whatsoever to genuine old Drogo bodies. Even if the owner(s) claim it is a Drogo it is NOT, especially not #4. Both these cars were NOT rebodied by Drogo, and not even in the 60s. Photo #4 is S/N 4769 and was taken 8/2006 at the RM Auction in Monterey/CA.

    Two pictures I've found in my archive , taken at the end of 70' and the event was an historical evocation of hill race "Susa-Moncenisio" .
    The car , showing "Scuderia Brescia Corse" emblems , is an ex 250 GTE numbered 3405GT (As posted and solved in my old thread : "Who knows this car ?" )

    Ciao

    Yes, genuine Drogo body, which in the very early 1970s went to Swiss Pierre De Siebenthal. 3405 GT started life as a 250 GTE 2+2 and was delivered new to Garage Trois Rois (Garage 3 Kings).

    Marcel, the blue car in picture 2, is that the salvaged body of the Norinder GTO #3445GT?

    I must say, #7979 has to win the ugliest body on a Ferrari ever! No sense of proportion, no sense of style. Details look like an after thought, just pasted on. Next to Vignale, Pininfarina and others, this looks like a truck.

    Picture 3 you meant ?
    I heard there is two blue identical cars one is a replica by Terry Hoyle. A third one was made recently with Maranello Concessionnaires colors.

    07979GT is possibly one of the ugliest car on earth.

    You mean photo #3 (blue car with German license plates from Hamburg ("HH"=Hansestadt Hamburg).
    The body is coming from 250 GTO #3445 and was put onto 250 GTE chassis #2423 GT by Terry Hoyle for Martin Hilton. However, the blue body has been extensively repaired (see photos below from the Club Ferrari France magazine) and also modified over the years. Car is in Germany since 1996.

    Dear Marcel

    The rear window surround is the only part from the original Drogo body that was used on the car that uses engine #2423. The rest of it was new.

    Kind regards

    as far as i know, and even the owner told me, the chassis is not 2423GT, but was made new. the car has only engine 2423GT. the chassis numberplate does not really look authentic. pics are from oct. 2007.
    interesting car - very flat, you have an almost recumbent seating position, but the owner is driving the car rather hard and competitive. nice guy, that showed me the car in all its details.

    Here is the real 250 GTO #3445GT rebodied by Piero Drogo's Carrozzeria Sports Cars in the 60's for the Swedish driver Ulf Norinder. Unfortunatelly, the car was later badly damaged and (unfortunatelly?) #3445GT was rebodied in it's GTO 62 form. What was left of the Drogo body (maybe there was more than the rear window surround?) was used to build the blue car. The original color of that Drogo body was also dark blue. Other cars with a body like this were rebodied on shortened 250 GT's in the 80's or 90's and are NOT original Drogo's. (Photo from Jess Pourret).
