    If anyone has an extra Harold Clewsworth poster of the 500 Superfast, please PM me. The last photo, I think, is one of Oscar Davis' cars at Cavallino. Looks like The Breakers in the background.

    Hi, Marcel.
    I just found a notepad on the floppy disc.
    It describes the black car as "1952 Ferrari Tipo 225 Export Competition Coupe, owned by George L. Sterner, 1970"

    Does this correlate with your data?

    It's a 212 Inter Coupé Vignale, chassis #0237 EU. Factory converted to 225.
    George Sterner of York, PA/USA, owned it in the late 1960s until 1972.
    In November 1972 original engine #0237 EU was removed by Stanley Nowak and installed in chassis #0149 E, and then engine# 0269 EU installed in chassis #0237 EU.

    The painting of the F1 car and drivers is by Chuck Queener (he signed it twice) and was used for an FOC magazine cover.

    Don't forget that this is the same as the car that won the 1949 Le Mans 24hrs, and the Spa 24hrs. Upto this day this is still the smallest engined normally aspirated car to win the famous 24 hours race!

    "Bump" for this three-year old post: I watched the movie by chance yesterday; as said by Kare, the picture is indeed from "Ieri, oggi, domani" ("Yesterday, today and tomorrow") an Italian movie from 1963. The movie is three different short stories, the car is from the second one.
    Someone in the discussion on Imdb says that the car is 2871GT indeed, but would anyone here be able to confirm?
    There is a quick acceleration by the car from standing still, V12 music is nice; AND the lady in the passenger seat is none other than Sophia Loren...
    (the guy at left on the guardrail is, of course, Marcello Mastroianni)

    IMCDb.org: 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Spyder California [2871GT] in "Ieri, oggi, domani, 1963"

    Yes it is 2871 GT. Italian license plates of Milan "MI 583693".
    I have the old paperwork to confirm all of that. The owner at the time was the original one and his name was Gianfranco Frattini. He kept this California until June 5, 1978, seventeen years.

    Hi,

    Yes! And to make it even more spoofy and sort of over-the-top, they not only drive off, but they come back very soon and do a drive-by in that shot with Sophia (or Anna of Milan being her character) waving her hand as good-bye!

    The whole thing seems very much improvised, as I have a hard time believing anyone, especially in that era could have written something like that into the script, except the fact that the lady hitch-hikes her way out of the embarrassing situation. ;)

    IIRC the character behind the wheel of the Spider is called "Giorgio Ferrario" :D (!) and is a cameo role for the composer Armando Trovajoli! I am sure they had a lot of fun with the car they had managed to borrow from someone somewhere. (anybody know who?) Armando must have been over the hills with joy!

    According IMDB the movie did win an Oscar, and how many times do you have a chance to watch Sophia Loren perform a strip-tease? :))) Definately worth seeing on the silver screen.

    Cheers,

    Pekka T.
    Fin.

    Thank you very much, Marcel (oder sollte es "Danke Vielmals" sein?).
    I watched the movie by chance yesterday and I found that scene "so very italian", full of nostalgia...

    Thanks Pekka! Yes, that small scene with the 250 GT California Spider "Passo Corto" was a nice surprise...

    You're welcome. I had seen that movie long ago, but did not remember that scene either. It was Kare who dragged me to the movie theater in Helsinki that shows classics from real film on the big screen, run by the national film archive.

    Old movies are a lot of fun in many ways and best seen the way they were originally presented, a bit like classic cars are best enjoyed on old country roads! ;)

    Cheers,

    Pekka T.

    Saw this in a movie, "Goodbye Charlie" where Pat Boone is driving a Ferrari spider or cabriolet.
    I took a screen shot but it's really bad.
    Can someone identify the car?
