Ferrari 512S Modulo Pininfarina

Guess who bought the Modulo from Pininfarina?

Fantastic!!

ok, so, what are the glass-looking spheres on the inner sills?

How far do the front wheels turn in those fender skirts?

Is it running?

What's the short list for making it as streetable as the Dino Competizione? Something tells me that this is a more extensive job . . .

Congratulations!!! Too bad the P5 was not kept intact . . . .

Hope all is well,
B

Jim- You said it was something different and this one surely qualifies. Plus she has a 512S chassis and engine hidden in there. That thing should get up and run when she is ready.

Jim, is it even on a real frame? Does it have any suspension? In the footage I have seen of it, it looks like it jounces on the slightest uneven pavement like it is rigid like a hand builtframe just for support might.
I guess in other words, the short version is, is it a real car?

Hi

She steers fine. We'll adjust front spat slightly. Spheres are cast from bowling balls.Right switch gear left air vent. Chassis/engine/gearbox/suspension/ etc. all original 512s/612 can Am. We will drive her to Villa D'Este in 2016.

Jim- One thing you might look at is the steering/front suspension set-up. The 512S was known for very heavy steering, enough that the drivers complained. On the 512M changes were made (caster?) that made the M a much more pleasant race car. With your contacts, I am sure you can find out what was done. Many 512S chassis were upgraded to the 512M front end and steering. If you are going to drive her regularly, might as well have the best for her.

Her motor/gearbox/chassis and suspension are likely 612 Can Am 0864. When we get her apart we'll be able to see stampings some of which are behind panels.

Jim- In that case, she probably already had the suspension/steering mod.

Jim, this is a very, very special car...and if I may...have some questions:


1. If the car has 612 internals why then 512 S Modulo. Is 612 and 512 Chassis the same outlay ?


2. When you bought the car, was there a real engine in it or just an "outside engine" without internal moving parts ?


3. If you say chassis, engine, gearbox..even suspension are all original 512/612 parts have you then found some internal numbers who confirm that or is it mainly from looking at the construction details of all those parts ?


4. What specific construction details makes all believe that it is a 512/612 based car ?


5. Getting such a car is a tremendeous special thing to do, it is such epochal design. On another note ...has ever anybody found / seen numbers stamped on any parts of this car to bring more light to ist real base ? Or with other words, what makes one to believe that stamped numbers are behind panels ? Sorry for that dumb question.


Many thanks for possibly bringing more light to this special car. It would be very interesting and education enhancing for many around here. And sorry again in advance if some questions sound too stupid to be answered but I'm only an amateur with a vivid interest. Many thanks !

These answers will come over the next two years as we awaken her. It's original 512 S chassis is the 27th original 512S chassis Ferrari made and likely was modified to 612 Can Am 0864 by Ferrari and after 0864 was no longer needed by the Factory Enzo gave the chassis/engine/gearbox etc. to Sergio to make a one off Ferrari Show Car.

I found some old photos of it under the hood. Are those guillotine throttles?
