It looks like the front clip has been replaced at some point in the car's life as it is incorrect for that chassis number which is an M series car from late 1970. The front clip currently fitted comes from a later E series model. The lower front end of the E series cars was revised in late summer '72 to the style on this car with the short front bumpers, more rectangular front grille and round intakes on each front corner to feed air to the cabin ventilation fans. I've seen quite a few M or early E series car fitted with late E series front clips as it would appear these were the only original panels available from the factory when bodywork was required in the 80's or early 90's.
Current: F50, 246 GT (x 2), 246 GTS
Past: 360M, F430 spider, 430 Scuderia, California (x 2), 458 Italia (x 2), 458 spider, 246 GT
