    My all time favourite pic of Moss and Ferrari together: Moss driving 2119GT for the win at the 1960 Redex Trophy GT race, Brands Hatch. This angle displays the beauty of the SWB particularly well and you can clearly see Moss working the steering wheel.

    I appreciate the information. Here's another photo. Kudos to the owner for putting the miles on it.

    2617 GT was shown at The Quail Motorsport Gathering at Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, CA, Friday, 18 August 2017. A really superb SWB Berlinetta.

    Yes another one...

    Given the amount of fakes produced by Gto Eng. we ask question about the provenance of these engines?

    From what I understand they are newly built engines not lifted out of a 250GTE or 330 GT (they have built some as 4.0 litres). No idea if they build them themselves or have an outside supplier though.

    Well! On the other hand, it's not bad either.
    New engines and other new elements, it makes you shudder in every sense of the word.

    Notes with the photo say this was Friday practice and the streamlined front was not there on race day.
