    I took this photo of 2321 GT 26 years ago, in August 1989, at the AvD-Oldtimer Grand Prix at the Nürburgring in Germany. It was later repainted yellow.

    I preferred when this area was used for pouring aluminum into molds!

    I love to see old and classic Ferraris in bare metal! It shows the car's history.

    Finally, the restoration is now complete. The car was recently presented by Classiche.
    A Ferrari rises from the ashes
    Question: What is the version of the car today? it does not match the version "Mille Miglia 52"...can you confirm the car restored by Classiche is now conform with your documents / pics ?

    They done the car like the Coppa-Inter in 1952.

    But the nose is completely WRONG !!!

    Not just the nose and grille is wrong, other elements too.
    Plus the color combination as well.
    All very frustrating but not really surprising.

    Can you share a period image of the 'correct' nose treatment?

    The nose seems to take most of the abuse. I can think of several restored cars were the nose is not faithfully reproduced. Specifically the grill opening shape. Sadly it changes in a subtle way the whole character of the car compared to the original design...

    Great before and after pictures you provide here! Amazing how the subtle and in some cases not so subtle design differences change the 'look' of the car...

    The shot of the 290MM at Sebring is spectacular.
