    Hello fellow Ferrari enthusiasts,

    i would like to know where the 275 GTB 08305 is located today. There is a good reason behind this question: The father of a friend of mine passed away a couple of years ago (Mr. Weber). The father owned 08305 until 1980 and sold it then. When clearing out a storage of him recently we found the original Campagnolo rims which were fitted to this car when bought - the rims were changed for wire wheels because my friends dad liked that better at the time. We would like to reunite the car with the original rims when possible. The last trace i have of that car is an owner in Darmstadt, a Mr. Karl Eidel (germany) according to barchetta (see picture). We tried to contact every Mr. Eidel in Darmstadt (not that many) to no avail. So if any of you guys know who owns 08305 today please contact me (PM) or directly here. Any help is appreciated. Genuine pictures of the car when owned here in my hometown of Paderborn, Germany and pictures of the Campagnolos are attached.

    It's not Darmstadt and not Karl Eidel.
    It is Pfungstadt and Karl-Dieter Eydel.

    Wow, thank you Mr. Massini, that was quick. Is that Mr. Eydel the last known owner?

    It appears he still had it in 2011 and the car was undergoing restoration.
    Note different spelling.

    I know „Charly“ Eydel. He still has the car. I will give him a call about it.

    Thanks

    Also ask him about the other F car......which he has had for ages.
    I last met him about 40 years ago at the Nürburgring.
