alright people
this tuesday i ran into something that i didnt even knew that it excisted, and some of the other ferrari specialist knew about the car but had never seen it before.
so ofcourse i took several pics from it :wink: , wich will follow later on, but now i wanna see if somebody here knows about this car
all im telling at the moment is that its a 250 GT and the s/n is 0461GT

and i really would love to see some contemporary pics of it if somebody has that

Hi Dirk,

I have seen pics of this car before. It is mentioned in the book by Antoine Prunet: "The Ferrari Legend: The road cars" page 172. There is also a 410 SA cabriolet, s/n 0485SA and a 410 SA coupé, 0477SA with the same features as the front and rear. A strange looking car though.

I will add the pics I have, please respect the copyright.

It really look like an American car of the '50s. I must say I havent seen this before. Must check with my Ferrari 1947-1997 book.

Hi Dirk,

thanks for your pics. This car reminds me of a whole different car: a DKW (sorry.... :oops: )

But it's unique, it's an icon of it's era and it's a Ferrari. I like it!

Nice yellow Ferrari in the background of the 1st pic, Dirk. Althougth I think I saw that car some weeks ago, but I can't remember where :D
