    Michelotti was not involved in this car.

    The design was done by Robert Peak and Luigi Chinetti Jr.

    The body was built by Vignale, in fact it was the last Vignale-built

    Ferrari. The chassisnr. is 7963 The codename was Ferrari San Remo

    Michelotti did create a body for the two Americans, but that was based

    upon a 275P. See attached photo

    That's not a custom Daytona...
    ...it's a cry for help.

    Why are people often grumbling about special Ferrari one-offs ?

    Have you ever driven this Daytona or the 330 GT 2+2? I have.
    Haver you ever seen those cars on good quality pics or better in reality?
    Ask me to get some nice shots.

    I like Ferraris (and other Italian brands) of the 50s, 60s and 70s because of so many different shapes and coachbuilders like Touring, Vignale, Scaglietti, Motto, Zagato, Boano, Frua, Allemano, Ellena, Fontana, Ghia,
    Panther Westwinds.

    What would Ferrari be without those individually designed cars and some
    special one-offs?

    You may like or hate the body design, however those cars are part of the history. I prefer spotting and testing them or taking photos of these "good and honest" cars.

    I dislike the increasing number of the goodlooking 250 GTO or SWB fakes
    based on 250 GTE chassis - just to get a Ferrari s/n.

    That's a BIG SHAME.

    The history of the so called "Shooting Brake" is much older and was founded by end of the 19th century !

    Horse-drawn carriages were used during big huntings, fixed with seats
    inside to give the hunting party the opportunity to enjoy food and some drinks.

    The first "Shooting Brake" called automobiles were built long before the WW1 to transport the dogs and the guns.

    After the WW2 the "Shooting Brake" was also used to carry hunting dogs and guns, but more likely golf bags.

    BTW: I have driven the most powerful and most expensive "Shooting Brake" all over the world: an "Aston Martin V12 Vantage one-off" with 612hp ordered by a German couple to keep their hunting dog happy. The car is currently based at the Technic Museum of Lucerne, given as a donation. Photos available.

    Hello

    hope to get some comments relating my 2 previous postings.

    Here is the story of another Ferrari Station Wagon based on a 212 Export, fixed originally with a Fontana body - s/n 0086E

    This car was several times rebodied, also 1951 into a Station Wagon by Vignale, used as a spareparts transporter for the Carrera Panamericana Mexico in Nov. 1951 - before it was rebodied again into a Spyder.

    Details can be found in Marcel Massini's book "Ferrari by Vignale" on page 83/84.

    Do you have other book or magazine references on that car?
