    06885 cannot really be perceived as a street 275 GTB and is about as far removed from it as a 250 GTO is from a 250 GT/L Lusso.

    Having never drive any of them, I just like the appearance of earlier (open headlight) cars and would likely appreciate their “primitiveness” more.

    Then again, I’ve always liked and preferred older, simpler (GT) cars. I’d love an opportunity to have extended (road trip ?) drive in early ‘30s 6C1750 Zagato spider or 166 Berlinetta (rather than Barchetta), etc. much more than in some dual-cowl Duesenberg, P-A or R-R, etc, although I’ve never driven any of them either.

    I wouldn’t have any interest owning or driving something like F40 or LaFerrari, etc.

    I believe the car was having some idling and throttle issues. The film was of it leaving the event and judging by the water temp gauge, I don't think the engine was being revved that highly until it got some heat in it. However, I thought the video was worth posting so we could see some of the details of this unique and special car. Shame we couldn't see the engine but it's rare to hear and see any footage of 07185.

    Original engine with damaged cylinder block is still with the car. Replacement engine is said to be from 07987, a 275 GTS. Why is it stamped 7987/ A as pictured by Bjoern Schmidt/barchetta below, and not 07987? Does the engine have the top end/cylinder heads from 07185 installed, or is the complete engine from 07987? If the whole 07987 engine, has it been converted to full Competizione spec with tipo 130 cams, magnesium cam covers and dry sumped etc, as per 07185?

    Well, like/get it or not, I wouldn't be surprised if the driver has far more experience operating/running/driving vintage (& racing) Ferraris and their engines than you, I and whole bunch of others on this forum put together and likely knew exactly what needed to be done on that occasion. ;)

    Steve: Engine currently in 7185 is beyond factory comp specs. Lots of trick stuff. Still has the original 7185 heads, VERY WILD cams (242 degrees at .050" lift), 12.73 to 1 compression, large diameter headers, mag parts, factory dry sump system. Made 348 bhp at 8,200 rpm on an "honest" dyno. Car is crazy fast.

    As for the "A" in the engine number, I have no idea. May have been a factory replacement for the "original" 7987 engine at some point. Yes, the original block for 7185 is still with the car.

    Hello, thank you for sharing my video. I touched on about the car in the description which can explain the reasoning for the "rev,rev going nowhere" aforementioned which you covered. As for engine coverage, here are some pictures of mine:

    Hope this helps!

    Holden bought 0412 AM from John Edgar in 1956, when the car was two years old already.

    The Dino 206S 008 wore the nº12 at the 1966 1000KM of Nuerburgring, perhaps it's the same car.

    Thank you for posting the engine pictures, and of course for posting the video on youtube. Good to see the dry sump oil flap on the bodywork, the oil tank itself and other details.
