    Can anyone tell me which 166 Inter with Farina bodywork this is?

    There is not much info to be found about Stabilimenti Farina. Pininfarina is getting all the attention of course, but Farina deserves more.

    Please post anything you know about Farina and their Ferraris.

    Stabilimenti Farina built:

    4 Berlinettas: 009S, 021S, 031S, 037S

    3 Cabriolets: 011S, 033S, 063S

    1 Coupe: 041S

    007S was a Touring rebodied by Farina.

    I can only find pics of 007S, 021S, 037S and 041S.
    What happened to the rest?

    Stab.Farina was founded in 1919 as Stabilimenti Industriali Giovanni Farina S.A. in Torino. It closed down in 1953 and Giovanni died in 1957. The first pictured car in this thread is #021S.

    I wouldn't dare to question you, Boudewijn, but it seems they've changed the bonnet... different air intakes.

    Well, the overview so far shows that we still need to find pics of Coupe #031S and that we have one Cabriolet too many!
    Or maybe the extra cabriolet is resprayed and been given another body and then it would be 011S...

    Let's show them one by one.

    I see many more differences...

    Look at the number of horizontal bars in the grille: 5 instead of 4.
    The air vent in the bonnet is missing.
    The two extra small lights beneath the headlights are missing.
    The little hole beneath the grille has a different shape.
    No side mirrors, but they could've been added later...
