    A pity the interior picture is from a S2 1964 style GTO. And there were only 36 250 GTOs. Yes, amateurs!

    Some more serious metal there...a few cars over $1m. Interesting.

    A worm and sector Cobra > 1 million? The GT350 "school" car does not appear to be a R model.

    Do people call narrow body Cobras worm? Or is it due to the lower perf engine?
    I dont know enough about Cobras to have an opinion on whether that one should be $1m+, from my little understanding, that type of Cobra should be below $1m unless it has some amazing history which this one does not seem to have.

    The first 75 or so cars were built with 260 engines, and the first 125 or so had worm & sector steering until the changeover to rack and pinion. The early cars are not as desirable unless a factory built comp car; independent comp. with good history; or perhaps the early Hugus built cars. Just my opinion, I am by no means a Cobra expert.

    Ahh i thought they were called worm as opposed to a cobra because they are skinnier and less powerful like a worm vs a cobra :)

    Thanks for the lesson.

    TheTFJJ video with the 3 GTO models, 250 GTO (3387GT), 288 GTO and 599 GTO at Joe Macari's Official Ferrari Service Centre in Wandsworth.

    Interesting that the gauges on 3387GT are a combination of Smiths and Veglia, including the Smiths tachometer.

    Does anyone knows the chassis number of the 250 GTO that is on display at Ferrari Maranello Museum.
    Sadly, I cannot find it online.

    Thank you.

    I came in late in appreciating the 250 GTO, your book recommendation helps. Thank you.

    I wonder how it ended up at the Ferrari Maranello Museum. I assume the current owner is generous enough to loan it to Ferrari so that the public can see the "Ferrari of Ferraris"
