    Owning one I would of course, but it's very relevant here on this thread.

    As Ferrari's first "mass production" car and hence it's commercial significance it's role at early 1960's motorshows would be very important.
    That was the model Joe Public was most likely to buy, thats how the money would come in.

    A bit of context for the great image shared by Boudewijn... the Paris Auto Show October 1 - 11 in 1964 was the debut for the 275 GTB model series. The Verde Scuro (dark green) berlinetta was 06449 and featured a beige interior. The white 275 GTS was 06315 and appeared on the left side of the display with the 330 GT 2+2 in the middle and the 275 GTB on the right side of the Ferrari display. Green seems like a curious choice for a Ferrari show car color but that is the shade that the customer ordered for his Ferrari. Ironically the Italian customer didn't take delivery of his 275 GTB and instead Ferrari kept the car for almost a year until July of 1965.

    And then can we assume that the 500 Superfast on the bottom of that transporter is 5981SF, which ended up on the PF stand?

    The white spider above #06315 has white writing on the sidewall of the tires. Was that something special supplied by the tire maker for auto show promotion of their tire products? It seems to be a common characteristic on some display cars at auto shows.
    Goodyear and Pirelli seem to advertise the company name regularly on their tires.

    Very interesting. Would love to know what tire brand/model is on the 330 GT.

    Jumping ahead a couple of decades the 1984 GTO shown at Geneva in March featured GOODYEAR with small white letters. There the top of the smaller script was just below the tire tread. However on studio press pictures for the GTO different tires were fitted. There were no white letters to hi light the larger name and the script was placed in the other location with the top of 'GOODYEAR' facing the inner part of the tire away from the tread.

    Geneva March 1956, most probably.
    0461 GT was also shown at Torino April 1956 and then in New York again.
    Changed color several times.
