    I think you have your 330P and 330P2 pictures reversed. The green one is the P2 and should be the later chassis number and red one I think is actaully a 365P (but looks just like the 330P) and should have an earlier chassis number.

    Than again those are David Piper cars and he might have rebodied everything and I could be wrong.

    Either way, great pics

    You're right.
    I just wanted to see if you guys were following. :)
    Here's a nice pic of the green 330 P2 on the race track:

    You know John, beleive it or not I think I'm wrong!! Barchetta.cc has it as a totally different chassis number.

    But thats not why I think I'm wrong. According to "Ferrari Sports Racing & Comp car by Antione Prunet" (a very respefcted book on the F cars) page 322 shows a very nice overhead shot od ch# 0826 which is called in the book a 365P but looks very much like the green car. CH# 0836 os shown on page 328 and also looks like a P2 but has the updated P3 style windshield/cockpit area. Now chassis # 0824 looks like the red car as it was a very unoque type car. It was the only one to leave the factory in that configuration. It looked like a 330P with extra front fender vents. I am almost positive Piper rebodied the red car

    Piper owned so many and changed all of them. He has been driving us purists crazy! His cars look great and he has contributed so much to the hobby. Just nobody knows what anything is anymore.
