    Somehow I doubt if carrozzerria scaglietti converted the pototype 11929 later into a Spyder as the advert says.

    Take a look at the front inner wings, they are still fibre glass as per the coupe and not braced steel inner front wings as the Spyder’s were.

    So do I.
    The "current UK owner" approached me a few days ago.

    But it is a Sept. 1968 built “prototype“ 1967 Scaglietti Spyder (conversion), so perhaps all those came that way. o_O :confused:

    The add says its was converted in 70/71. It was a prototype coupe to start with in 1968.
    The spyder prototypes where made in 1969.

    It was stated by the OP William Halkiw in 2015 (and then owner?) in this thread that Scaglietti did not do the Spyder conversion and was done much later.

    NOTE WELL the statement regarding the official Ferrari "red book" from the Car and Classic advert below: ;)

    Grant, if by chance this ^^ is in response to my comment above yours, I’d like to clarify that mine was offered in jest to one by Ed prior to it.

    If I understood correctly, the Canadian owner who opened this thread had the project to restore the car in berlinetta configuration, but resold it before doing so? Hopefully someone will make the right decision.

    Speaking of Daytona prototypes, I recall an interesting pre Daytona "mule" sort of at Motorkraft near Chicago long ago. Mostly a 275GTB/4 body with a Daytona looking engine, (3 valve?) with something a little different about the nose as I recall. John called it a pre Daytona test bed. He thought there may have been two of these made. Interesting car and possibly an ally body, but not sure as it was a long time paet. Any ideas?
