    So, he has removed its later iteration of 010? Although historically significant as 1C not sure I am in agreement that it is no longer as 010.

    Was the engine modified back to 125 configuration or does it remain as the later 166?

    Jim Glickenhaus: There is no credible evidence 01C was re-stamped 010I by Ferrari. I believe that someone in the UK claims to have forged the "01C" stamp under the 010I chassis plate in the 70ies. Ferrari does not recognize this car as 01C. 01C's original engine and gearbox were used by Ferrari in 002.

    Interesting details of the engine and gearbox being in 002I. Please explain your basis for this - personal observation, build sheets, other.

    I am not doubting you, this is the first time I have heard this.

    I doubt this is the V-16 referenced. It sounded like a V8 with glasspacks to me.....:D

    Anyone have the actual build date of 002I and its first race?

    Is it accepted that it was 1C that was crashed by Righetti in early September in testing for the Modena race of September 28, 1947? How do these dates compare to 002I?

    I have the first appearance of 002I (or 002C) at Modena on the 28th September. Cortese failed to finish.

    In addition, or to clarify, all my records indicate that the post-script "C" was used for chassis up to 004 and the post-script "I" was used for chassis 006 onward. At least according to the texts. I wonder what was actually stamped on the chassis?

    I understand that the book by Nathan Beehl, Doug Nye and Ronald Stern may be able to accurately define which of these 1947 cars were where on which dates using factory records. Anyone have the book to check?

    I just found answer to my own question! https://www.petersen.org/1955-ferrari-125s

    When I saw it I was completely in awe (was not allowed to take photos), and our guide barely mentioned the car and of course no one else seemed to care. I knew it was 125 S but did not know it was rebodied til now

    007 S, originally a 166 Touring Coupé, fitted later with the body coming from 031 S (Stabilimenti Farina).
    NOT MY PHOTO.
