    I'm researching "di Lusso" options on Maserati, Lancia and Ferrari cars. I have been told of a Superfast with REAR window wipers.

    Does any one have any photos of a Ferrari with REAR window/screen wipers?

    What about other "unusual di Lusso" options?

    ~Ciao

    Of course, later cars came with or without A/C, power windows, and power steering. I have no idea which cars had the passenger-door assist feature. Does anyone know how this was operated?

    I have sat in one of the door assist cars owned by a TV personality. The door assist was super cool, a lever like a chrome parking brake lever that you would give a slight tug and the passenger door would 'pop' open so your lady could get in the car when you pulled up to the front of the opera house. The Superfasts were wide cars, with this lever you would not have to put a winkle in your suit leaning over the transmission tunnel to open the door.

    Fantistic documentation,...thank you Jim. The rear wipers add "something" to these cars,...it is hard to describe; a reinterpertation of the "rear house".

    I know there are many, but any other specs. on #0713 that you can point out?

    Ciao and best!

    Other than reading the license plate and realizing it is actually a SuperAmerica and not a Superfast as I had said in my previous post? I wish I knew more details about it. I just enjoyed seeing it at the show.

    Cheers Jim
