    Say what you want about the present day Ferrari's, there is just something about those old ones that can best be explained, "They do not build them like that anymore."

    The rear license plate light on a 275GTB or 275GTB/4 is typically mounted on the top of the rear bumper, with the lens surface angled toward the rear panel. All photos I have ever seen of the Del Rio 4-cam have shown the car without bumpers. I do not know if it was delivered this way, but the 1969 Automobile Quarterly article about this specific 4-cam shows the car without bumpers in period. Fair assumption that it was likely delivered in this configuration, which would necessitate an alternative light placement. The AQ article clearly shows the typical 275GTB rear plate light, simply rotated 90 degrees and fitted under the plate on the rear panel. Hence, I suspect it does not do the job too well.

    While this picture may initially offend some here, I didn't realize the interesting little detail it captured until I had already taken it at the beach side, spectator parking off 17 Mile Drive when leaving P.B. last Sunday afternoon.

    Ordered new by Dan del Rio of NY, paint to sample and "list" of special requests. It was featured in an 8 page spread in Automobile Quarterly, I stared at the images for perhaps hundreds of hours. When camping in the infield for the 6 hour race at Watkins Glen, I crawled out of my pup tent in the morning to find it parked next to us--I thought that I was hallucinating! The owner was very kind, I have photos taken standing alongside it somewhere.

    Just finished checking the compression** while enjoying a Perdomo 12 y.o. Vintage with Herradura Reposado.

    * Just a little bigger/better(?) than 275. :rolleyes:
    ** All good. :)

    Also it had front mounted driving/fog lights when I saw it in 1976-77.

    A better looking version than the 1967 style; most especially at the front.
    Just my 2 cents.
