    Interesting that some of the cars have outside mirrors (which I'd thought were dealer-installed), and that the fly yellow 246 GTS in the last shot appears to have the fender flares. Also, note how they're not all rosso corsa!

    I'm noting the quality of the finish. To me, they look really good. In other threads comments have been made stating the quality of the finish wasn't great.

    Any experienced commentary?

    Regards,

    what is interesting is the different styles of mirrors installed.

    i have never reallt heard too many "quality of finish" issues on cars of this era, usually the comments are directed to the factory finish of the 60's and before.

    are there any more photos?

    End of the `60ies external mirrors ( driver side only) became mandatory in Italy. During transition time plenty of aftermarket mirrors ( Vitaloni, Sebring,etc ) were just fitted wherever possible on fenders or door panels without really much engineering, just to comply with the new reglement.Before that time only Mr. Pininfarina`s personal 275 GTB was known to have the driver mirror and looked pretty exotic.

    Other than my previous thread, unfortunately, no.
