You wont believe that if your one is the same as used on the later 365 GT4/ 365 GTB4 "Daytona" (also 400?)

its just an OPEL OEM "ATE " brake part ;-)
Get an OPEL ADMIRAL B 2,8e



or Diplomat B 5.4 V8 brake reservoir.

This might be the correct one and its quite cheaper as Opel spare part than Ferrari stuff ;-)

Here this is the K.A.D. B Opel ATE spare part for a few bucks:

If its the older 1960s one you will have pay bonus cash for a "true Ferrari" (Bonaldi?) deluxe part ;-)))



Here is a new one for some big bucks:

Yorck- Assume you meant 365 GTB/4, not GT4.

Hallo, yes 365 GTB/4 you are right ;-) it was the wrong picture,
i did not realize the "in mid" of the V12 mounted carbs ;-)

but I think standard 365 Gt4 2+2 still had the same ATE Opel reservoir, please watch this great photo

http://www.barrett-jackson.com/stagi...Engine_Web.jpg

But i have just learned that the (mentioned) 1968 365 GT 2+2 has the lower 3 Plug (expensive) reservoir,
maybe i mixed some ferrari 365 types here. Its not so easy ;-)

i am not that big Ferrari specialist, coming from Dino, Fiat 130 Coupé and Alfa Montreal
so still learing more about those huge beautiful Ferrari 2+2.

Best regards

Yorck- That is a coincidence. I owned a Dino 246 GT, a Fiat Dino 2400 GT, and an Alfa Montreal. No Fiat 130, though.

you are missing a great experience, the 130 Coupé is just worth buying for
the razor sharp 70s looks, drives nicely too. Get one with 5 speed ZF box and A/C and you wont
miss a bigger car in daily summer traffic.
Never had a breakdown...these are quality cars 1000 miles away from a Fiat 124 or something like that...
Its the older little brother of the 365 Gt4 / 400 / 412i range of Paolo Martin styled cars.
Engine sounds very maserati like something Citroen SM mixed with Fiat Dino plus the
bark of a Ford Essex V6...nice little thing. Overlooked by the history.
I think this sculpture like car makes more PR for the Company FIAT than any fancy Fiat add or Tv spot of today.

Montreal suffered a little bit under its Alfetta "sluggish" OEM suspension, but also a fantastic
Bertone design....I had one in this 1970s orange metallic. Sold it in the mid 2000s
To my mind, Carlo Chitis V8 "Tipo 33" was as good if not even better than any Ferrari V8 during that period.
Still highly undervalued car those Montreals. (No Problem to get a KONI or SPAX supension kit for better handling)

Here you can even see that the reservoir on the 365 GTC/4 is an ATE spare part not Bonaldi.
So Opel Admiral B reservoir will fit without problems on those too.
