  1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday. However, you may have problems accessing FerrariChat until after you log out, clear cookies/browser cache, and log back on. Keep in mind my email is admin@ferrarichat.com if you do have access problems after Wednesday. Thanks!

    Hello Liscia,

    That's very interesting news. Could you tell us what body was on 0144/A when your father was involved with the car?

    I've some more questions, could you mail me at fer340am@wxs.nl?

    Bert

    Image Unavailable, Please Login I have been absent for such a long time, but now I agreed to do a presentation on the Ysmael Ferrari for the local sports car club’s November meeting, which will celebrate Ferrari’s 70 years. I will have to turn to this forum for help there.


    But, first let me tell you what I know so far about 0144A. It seems that Johnny Ysmael did not buy f0144A or himself, but arranged the purchase at the request of his friend Amado Araneta, who also wanted a Ferrari. Here is a photo of Araneta taken in 1964 at his home in Quezon City, a city adjacent to Manila. I do not know if that was the original color.

    It has been six years since the last post, before this thread was resurrected. I hope that there is still interest in the two “Philippine” 340s and that those who posted here before are all all right and keeping well.


    It seems Vignale made five 340 Image Unavailable, Please Login coupes, of which #0132 is one. Were the five coupes identical, except perhaps for minor details? I understand of course that they were hand fabricated, so that they cannot be completely identical.


    Regards,


    Andres

    All five were different from each other.
    Check the book "Ferrari by Vignale", published 1993 by Giorgio Nada Editore in Vimodrone (Milan), Italy.
    Author: Yours truly.

    For a split second there, I thought you had unearthed old photos of #0132 A. It seems to have disappeared after 1955.

    Wonderful photos, Ed.
