    joop - you show a pic of a drogo bodied car 0738GT in the above named thread.

    i did not find 0738GT in all my listings. there is 0738TR - carlos monteverdes yellow 250 TR but n0 0738 GT; are you sure about the number and what chassis is the car based on ?

    thank you

    It is 0738TR. It was rebodied by Drogo but is now back in its original form.

    Tom,

    you asked for Drogo pictures but 2445GT at 24 Hours of Le Mans race with number 59 was not a Drogo car.
    Do you want these pictures with the standard body ??

    You wrote : "the car is now fitted with the drogo body."

    I don't think that the car which has today s/n 2445GT is totally the original car.
    The history is mixed with 1965GT when both wrecked cars went at Drogo in 60's. Drogo made a car with pieces of both cars.

    See my earlier thread to answer one of your questions. 2735 is owned by Clive Beecham and kept in the UK. Weather permitting I might get a ride later this month at Goodwood with Stirling Moss at the wheel!

    738TR details & pics. As always, don't "republish" their pics - they don't like that.

    Joop, was the picture of the Drogo with s/n 3611 GT in the older thread you linked to taken at Zandvoort? If I recall correctly I saw it at Italia a Zandvoort in 2000 and judging by the picture it could well be the paddock of Zandvoort. Just curious...

    2939gt 250 SWB has the engine of 2445gt? What engine does 2445 have?
    It drove le mans with engine 2053?

    Remains of 2053 are with Swaters, but is this car ever to be restored. What is left of this car?
