    I hope you got this thing for nearly free, because, it looks like it needs a lot of work.

    That front end is mangled, definitely need to cut it off and graft on a new one. Hard to find front end parts like that, I reckon most cars that are damaged and parted out have front end damage, lol.

    Though, I do have a pair of Red Headlights if you're interested. Clear-coat is fading one on of them, but, should be an easy fix with some sand paper. I just opted to replace it instead.

    Good luck

    All the usual breakers have been mentioned many times here such as Eurospares in UK & Cheval Cabre in France (not for headlights obviously !)

    There's one or two in Germany and appears to be one in Poland who is on Ebay a lot

    Try a search on breakers

    And I think the front tyres look like they need replacing - by the time you have finished they could all be too old

    The missing front wings make it difficult to determine extent of frame damage, simply based on photos. That appears to be a pretty significant shunt, at least in the context of the Ferrari world. I'd ring www.exoticautorecycling.com in California. The pieces you'd need to put that 360 back together correctly, as 'new' items, would be cost prohibitive.

    You've come to the right place. Contact @97 Spider , he parts out 360s and sells the parts for extremely reasonable sometimes downright cheap. That being said, I hope you got that car for a steal. It's gonna be $$$$$$$$$ to get that thing back on the road. That's why you see so many of these cars totaled out with what looks to be minimal damage. Be prepared for a bit of slack from some folks. I hope you post your progress. Welcome to the board!

    I've done some crazy stuff over the years (rebuilt my share of cars), but never with a car like that. The only bright spot is that there are a lot of wrecked 360's out there, but my thoughts are that once you start to take it apart you might find a lot of things that are not visible. I'm surprised the wheels are tires look untouched, so maybe the frame was untouched. The front side panels, were they taken off for some reason (were they undamaged). if they were not that would explain the wheels looking like they do.. This looks like a front end hit, and it does not take much to crumple the hood on these cars. Can you move the front wheels with the steering wheel?. I wish you luck, you have guts!

    Congratulations on the purchase HektikArab.

    In my opinion the damage isn't too bad, as long as a reputable body shop who knows what they are doing carry out the repair, I am sure it will once again be a great car on the road.

    Parts wise, Call/Email Mike @ Prosport Ferrari here in the U.K. They carry a large stock of parts and also remanufacture a lot of bits you will need... front panel, radiator cages, radiators, bumper etc.

    If you don't fancy the repair bill/hassle message me as I may be interested in purchasing the car from you! (That makes two of us who are crazy!)

    Can I make a suggestion on how to get this car on the road the quickest?

    .... Since you are in Australia....

    I would buy a black front hood, some LED head lights and blinkers, attach all loose wires securely, check all mechanicals and be on the road Mad Max style.

    Hey bud thanks for the help, I will contact Mike. I dont really pay attention to people who hate so if fixing a an exotic sports car makes me crazy I guess all there mechanics are too then :). In regards to selling it I might keep it for now unless your offers worth it. I would of thought these cars were cheaper in the UK than Australia ?

    Turn it into a F430 look-a-like. Someone displayed it here last year (not able to find the linky).
    Nothing to lose

    Makes no sense. Everyone appreciates that the 430 is newer, more modern, faster, etc, but most people prefer how the 360 looks.

    I will never understand the time any money invested into a car that you will be married to. :confused:
    And you will lose your shirt when it's time for the divorce.

    There's just too many of these cars out there running, driving and well kept for around $50K-- and will have a decent resale value without a disaster in their past.

    But with that said, live and let live. Truly, good luck with it.

    To the OP I would suggest that you not take the advice of others here as hate but rather as a realistic assessment from experience of the costs associated with a repair of this nature. Even for a RHD domiciled in Australia (I know the prices are higher for cars there), and assuming the donor car was near free AND all of your repair labor and parts sourcing time was free, the parts bill alone for used parts will make this project financially backwards. In the end you will be left with a car that will be obviously repaired to anyone who inspects it leaving it at significantly less value than a clean no stories car. Take it from people who have been there and done that over many years and who have a good appreciation for the Ferrari world and the costs of repairs / the perception of a repaired car.

    That said I will respectfully ask the OP what are your motivations in taking on this this project?

    Im keeping this car. With all respect to people on here , it does not make a car devalued once been damaged. Ultimately every car will undergo repairs in its lifetime, whether this be mechanical or cosmetic, and should not devalue or impede ones opinion on purchase. However there are cars that have never been mechanically and cosmetically damaged and that gives the potential "Paranoid" buyer a bit more piece of mind that everything was fitted to "manufacturer specs", that being said some cars can be reinforced structurally stronger then "Ferrari manufacture specs" and would make this "modified /repaired vehicle" safer was it to crash compared to how the manufacturer created it, so does this now "appreciate" the value to a car that has never been modified ? well depends on the persons perspective and if they just prefer a car that is "factory designed" or potentially "better then manufacturer design" (modified to be structurally stronger), if its a car with less then 50kms I would say "yes, untouched/modified/no previous damage/major mechanical works" but if its kms are driven vehicle then the vehicle needs to be serviced and as far as becoming a "collectible" ones kidding themselves unless it is a very rare car, then kms, previous damage, restoration , etc "DONT MATTER" . Hope this answers your question
