    It is the same car, because there was only ONE 308 GT4 LM

    The orgaisation did not qualified this car in 1975 Le Mans, after what L. Chinetti did retired all his NART cars of his team.

    The NART 308 GT/LM is the -- or one of the -- prototypes for the Dino 308 GT/4. It has the lowest chassis number I've found (8020) with Dino 246s running will up to the 8800 range. It participated, or rather attempted to participate, twice at LeMans, entered by NART.

    To my knowledge no one has ever really researched the very early history of this car before Luigi Chinetti bought it.

    Luigi is spinning in his grave at redline!

    Actually, Black Bart has the badges. I bought one and they are fine!

    Should be on all US cars, instead of the goofy SF shield.


    He even ran the F1 cars for Enzo, on isolated events, when the Italian squad withdrew in protest.

    Hi Jim,

    Another acronym that's Ferrari-related is F.A.R.T. For real! Some oldtimers may know. I know. Anyone else want to take a guess? I'll post the answer Thursday afternoon/early evening. Here's a hint: Think cold.

    One minor correction- the last 246 built was #08518, but yes, this GT4 is VERY early.
