    I did a little more research (thanks to a link in another thread) and found at least one of the cars I was looking for. The 330 LMB is #4725SA. Now I have to id the 375MM(?)

    I would say it's a 500 Mondial but couldn't find the s/n. That's hurt me !!!

    I think it may be a 500 Mondial. 375MM's usually have scoops on the anterior part of rear fenders. Windscreen is a little unique for a 500Mondial, but not unheard of. Perhaps 0418MD??

    Not "perhaps" : IT IS 0418MD. I just found a pic of this one : same double rear mirrors and strange windshields.
    Great job Sfumato !

    Thanks for the info. I went looking at all of the 375 MM's and could find any that resembled my photo. I thought maybe 375 Plus but nothing close. Could you post the photo you found or provide a link, I would like to take a close look at it.

    thanks again,

    David

    Yes, it's a Mondial and NOT a 375. The main difference and the easiest way to tell (at least for me) is that a 375 would be 20% or more larger in physical size..

    Thanks to all who provided information on this model. I went back through my photos and found another photo of 0418 MD taken at the first Cavallino Classic. You'll notice that there are differences in this photo compared to the previous photo. I was wondering if the car had been restored since it was at the first Cavallino Classic with the addition of the scoop and full windshield.
    Any ideas?

    Seems like running lights and scoop added during restoration since 92, if this is really 0418. Could be 0434, but no hx @ Cav. Sure this is CC photo? If so, must have been added. Need period pic to confirm earlier scoop presence.

    Hood scoop was added around 1995 when acquired by Machul.

    Best wishes, Kare

    It was definately taken at the first Cavallino Classic. It was the first time I'd ever seen a GTO "in the flesh" along with meeting Phil Hill and getting his photo standing near the yellow 275 GT.

    never have understood why a center hoodscoop was added to a side-draft weber car - besides really wanting it to look more like big brother 375 . . .
