Dear Dinosaur followers (all eight of you),

One question I often get at shows and on line concerns the differences between the Series I and II 500 Mondials. This post will endeavor to note as many of the differences as I recall.

Technically the Series I cars have a tipo 501 chassis and a tipo 110 motor, while the 2nd series cars have a tipo 510 chassis and a tipo 111 motor. The differences between both the chassis and motors are visibly stark. See first and second photos below for chassis comparison, and third and fourth photos for motor comparison. Not shown are the front suspension differences, tipo 501 has transverse leaf from suspension and the tipo 510 has fully independent coil spring front suspension. The tipo 110 motor is a direct descendent of the 1952/53 Formula car’s 500 motor with rounded cam covers and a narrow valve included angle, most often fitted with magnetos. The tipo 111 motor is a direct descendant of the 1954 tipo 553 formula I motor with flat cam covers and a wide included valve angle, always fitted with distributors. The dyno sheets for the tipo 110 motor run about 160 bhp at 6,500 to 6,700 rpm. The dyno sheets for the tipo 111 motor run about 170 to 172 bhp at 6,700 to 7,000 rpm.

All but five of the Series I cars have Pinin Farina bodies, those five have Scaglietti bodies with windscreens mounted on a flat cowl. All of the Series II cars are Scaglietti bodied and the windscreen is faired to the cowl. The Series I cars have 125 liter fuel tanks which results in a taper shape to the rear of the car (for the Scaglietti bodies). The Series II cars have 150 liter fuel tanks resulting in a fuller shape to the rear of the car.

The transmission in the Series I cars is a four speed tipo 501/279, while the Series II cars have a five speed transmission tipo 509/346 In both cases the transmissions are mated to ZF limited slip differentials with the resultant combination being a transaxle unit, hence the drive shaft runs between the clutch housing and the rear mounted transaxle.

A minor visible difference is on the tachometer face with the Series I reading 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 etc. and the Series II reading 10, 20, 30 etc., the red line is annotated on the Series II tachometer face at 7,000 rpm.

These are the many basic differences between the Series I cars and the series II cars. The 750 Monzas built in 1955 are identical to the Series II 500 Mondials except for the motor and tachometer face marking (the 750 tach red line is 6,000). In retrospect the Series II cars perhaps should have had a different name such as a 500 Monza, as they really have little in common with the Series I cars other than displacement.

Best regards.

60th Anniversary

Bryan reminds me that 60 years ago today the First Grand Prix of Venezuela at Caracas was run. Harry Schell started the race in my car. Midway through the race Eugenio Castellotti took over the driving role and brought the car home in 5th place overall and 1st in the under 2,000cc class.

This is to give you an idea of the caliber of driver Castellotti was. A guy named Fangio won the race in his three liter Maserati with a fastest lap time of 1 minute and 47 seconds. Castellotti had a fastest lap of 1 minute and 49 seconds over the 4 kilometer course in my two liter 500 Mondial SII.

The following pre-race shot was in an issue of AutoAge (now defunct) but the color has shifted. The car #8 is mine.

Admiral,

I just saw your video on Petrolicious! (This Is The Admiral?s Ferrari 500 Mondial | Petrolicious)

What a wonderful video! The images and sounds of your Mondial and hearing the story of your stewardship never gets old. I could watch that video a hundred times and never get tired of it.

Thank you for sharing your story with us again and to the guys at Pretrolicious...very well done!

We in the MAR miss you and the rest of the Phillips family!

Bill P.

That was fantastic, saw it on my twitter feed and re-tweeted right away! Was very happy because a greater audience will know of you and yours Ferrari. Liked it and added it to my yt favourites before watching. It was a nice way to end the day on a high note like that! Beautiful story, your humour, production, camera, sound, everything - Petrolicious/10 might I add

Quite right; this film would not have happened without Daytonafan's introducing me to Afshin at Petrolicious last year.

The video is awe inspiring. As I have talked to a few old guys, what I found out was that it was the pocket protector types who were buying European sports car. The run of the mill guys were buying American muscle(Not that there is anything wrong with that).

I had to watch it twice.
The first time I couldn't pay attention to what the Admiral was saying, I could only focus on the car.
Actually, I think I'll watch it a third time to see the marvelous scenery.
Awesome video.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Dear Dinosaur followers,

This post is to maintain the details of my car in this thread, and it describes the motor lubrication system.

There are three oil pumps, two are scavenge pumps (as it is a dry sump system), and there is one pressure pump. Each of the two oil pickups feeds its own pump. The first picture shows the duplex scavenge pumps and the second shows the main pressure pump. The third shows them in relation to each other at the bottom front of the motor. The oil from the scavenge pumps is routed through the duplex manifold back to the oil tank in the right fender. Main oil from the pressure pump is routed through the filter cast in the center of the oil pan (at arrow) in photo #4. The oil filter is composed of two fine screen nested sleeves. From there it enters a gallery in the crankcase. It then is routed through the black pipe manifold to the five main bearings shown in photo number five. The crankshaft is cross drilled so that the oil from each main (not including the center main) feeds the adjacent connecting rod journal. There is another passage from the gallery up to the center bearing of each of the hollow camshafts. Each cam lobe has a small drilled opening which provides lubrication to the roller cam followers. After exiting the cam lobes the oil free flows back down the front of the engine providing lubrication to the series of gears then to the sump where the oil pickups do their job. Another aspect of the dry sump system is that there is no rear main seal. It has a flinger arrangement. The one negative to this set up is that if the car sits for a week or more, the oil in the tank seeps back through the pressure pump and when the sump is filled to the level of the crankshaft, then the oil proceeds to pond on the floor. Over the winter I simply pump out the 16 liters of oil to preclude that mess.

Best regards,

Petrolicious video

Dear Dinosaur followers (obviously more than eight),

Quite a happy surprise this morning as the visit count to the Petrolicious video of my car went over 100,000 views!


That is more than my 15 minutes of fame.

Best regards,

Robert

OH-OH !!!

Just received an email from R-M/Sotheby's publicizing their forthcoming New York City auction. Momentary stopping of heart function as the electronic catalog has as its principal featured offering a French racing blue #8 Ferrari 500 Mondial, photos appearing on the cover, inside the front cover and on the title page, and I immediately thought that the Admiral's car was going away. But no, this is the "other" French racing blue #8 500 Mondial. Wish I had a net worth of mebbe $100M since there is also a magnificent Pegaso Z102b Touring Superleggera berlinetta for which I've panted since first seeing one at its introduction at the 1953 New York City Automobile Show. And a M-B 300d 2-door coupe, und sofort.

Dear Seth,

Happy to hear the momentary stopping of heart function was a passing event!

See you at Cavallino in January?

Dear Dinosaur followers,

Came across this old photo from August 1973 that I thought some of you might like seeing.
