    There is a reason that car was declared a total loss.... < wink >

    Can you replace all of those ( and the unseen ) components , yes, but its going to cost a bundle, if done correctly.

    Contact a Ferrari Certified body shop, they can get the parts and build you an estimate.

    My .02 worth only,

    Good Luck!

    Any car that goes 300 kph should be a right off so then next poor sap does not kill himself when they open it up.

    Tollerances are small

    If someone gave you that car, by the time you have it finished, if at all, you will have a car that is sale proof and owes you more than a nice original one. Besides, there are thousands of them to choose from.

    Cars such as this-if you REALLY want to call it a car-are written off by insurers because they are worth far more broken up for parts, than can EVER be recovered by a "re-build-able wreck"-as we called them- in the 1970's
    The parts costs-let alone AVAILABILITY of said required parts- the LABOR costs, and expense for the expressly, and specific, FERRARI jigs and tools required for such an attempt would boggle one's net worth....lastly-do not discount the SKILL level required to endeavor to resurrect a: total loss/crash/wreck/hitter/ burner/ swimmer....
    But then again, in the 1970's, cars were made of: mostly steel then-not plastic, carbon, mag, aluminum, etc....

    These resurrections are folly, and I can speak with a hi level of experience on this-it's been DECADES since it made sense financially speaking, to try this sort of disaster reconstruction.
