    Sorry, I meant 1975, not 1995.

    I should mention that those 9000 series 275GTB/C's were real foolers. One had to know where to look to distinguish these from ordinary 1966 GTB's. One obvious clue was the oil filler door on top of the RF fender. In truth, almost everything was different, even the chassis type. I have seen them with wire and mag wheels, with and without bumpers, and 3 or 6 carbs. Mine had 3 LARGE carbs with curved velocity stacks. All around one of the sweetest cars I have owned; very fast but very drivable. They did have a propensity for falling over as a result of rear suspension failure. There were only 12 built, and I think 3 of them had been dirty side up, including mine.

    Yes, these 275 GTB/C cars are very different to the road cars. Do you know which ones had 6 carbs? I'm sure Dyke will know.

    All 12 cars were built with three carbs. 9063, very early in its life was converted to six carbs. As Ed mentions, the wire wheels (the last competition Ferrari so equipped) were the weak link. By 1966, the Dunlop M Series tires could generate more grip than a wire wheel could handle, so broken spokes and then a crash. As I recall, when 9035 ran Le Mans, they almost ran out of spare wheels getting through the race.

    Thank you, Dyke. Was it Ferrari that converted 9063 to 6 carbs?

    Steve: You are asking me to go a log way back in my memory, but I believe it was not the factory. 9063 passed fairly quickly through Pedro Rodriguez's hands when it came came to North America. Over here, you could run six carbs without legality issues. If I was to hazard a guess, I would suspect it was Chinetti that installed the six carb setup.

    Sheehan, where 09063 was for sale in 2001: 09063 sports a factory installed six Weber carb intake.

    Boudewijn: I have the correspondence from when the then current owner was attempting to get the car certified by Classiche. The factory rejected the six carb installation because it WAS NOT installed by them. I went through my old research and found the carbs were installed by Chinetti in the fall of 1966.

    Thanks for checking, Dyke. Seriously, you should write a book on the 275 GTB.

    There are several already, one being the one of Jess Pourret, and then there's another one by Ian Webb (Osprey Series), plus the one of Dave Williams about the Henn 06885.

    Thank you, Marcel. Of those the only one I don't have is the Jess Pourret 275 GTB book as it's in French.

    Does anyone have a photo of s/n 10843? Or know where it currently resides?

    Steve: Jess' book is OK, however it reflects the knowledge of the time. I also do not believe he ever owned one of the cars, though he was obviously around them.

    Thanks, Dyke. From actual long time ownership, having worked on them, studied the evolution, specifications and the build sheets you have full knowledge of the model 275 as well as the literary skills to write the definitive 275 book. I do realise it would be a lot of work and easier said than done I'm sure.
