    Short Nose 275 GTB used 60 spoke Borrani RW 3874 wire wheels and Campagnolo Starburst alloys which were both 6.5" x 14" in size.

    The very early Long Nose 275 GTB also used the Campagnolo Starburst alloy wheels in 6.5" x 14 " size as well as the Campagnolo 10 hole alloy design in this size.

    Please see pic below from 6 Carb Alloy Long Nose 275 GTB #08011 showing the 6.5" wide Campagnolo 10 hole alloy design.

    Later Long Nose 275 GTBs used the Campagnolo 10 hole alloy design in 7.0" x 14" size as well as the 72 spoke Borrani RW 4039 in 7.0" x 14" size.

    great info.
    what about the straight eared knockoffs as seen above vs the curved ear knockoffs?
    also the embossed(raised) horse emblem vs the etched(cut) emblem useage?

    Well this hero drives his 275GTB pretty fast



    I did get him eventually, and arguably i should have made an earlier lunge up the inside earlier, but i'm not that way inclined.
