Presentation for Cavallino
With Cavallino approaching, I was asked by Parker Hall to put together a photographic presentation for the International Advisory Council for Preservation of the Ferrari Automobile (IAC/PFA) seminar at the Breakers on January 21st. I have some pictures on a “GTE Spotter’s Guide” on my website, but would love to get some more pictures.
There are basically four or five shots that describe the differences between Series I, II, III, and 330 Americas.
A shot of the front of the car will show the fog light placement.
The sides of the cars are very similar, but it’s the different tail lights that I really need to show the difference between the Series I/II cars and the Series III/330 Americas.
The external appearances are similar with the 250 engines, but the obvious difference is the installation of the 330 engine with the America.
An interior shot from the passenger side will show the changes in the vent controls, vent placement, and center console shape. I will elaborate on these differences, but I need some of your help.
Here’s what I would love to get from owners of GTEs:
Series I owners:
Front of car for fog light placement
Rear of car for tail lights
Interior shot from passenger side of the car (like of the 330 America above)
Series II owners:
I should have some pictures of 3553 as we prep her for Cavallino, but if you’d like to send me a picture of your engine, I would appreciate it.
Series III owners:
Front, side, rear of the outside of the car, engine, and interior shot like the ones I have above.
You don’t necessarily have to take new pictures, but look to see if you have any on your computer to send. I would love to get them in resolutions higher than 2000 pixels across, because they will be used to project on a screen. Send them to email@example.com
Thanks for your help!
By the way, my 330 America is safe and sound in Maryland at Richard Garre’s shop. It was 25 degrees when I left my house at 6am Monday morning, and neither I nor the car enjoyed the cold weather, but at least it was dry. I now understand why Ferrari installed a radiator blind on these cars! Unfortunately, I had to remove mine to install the electric fan. Water temps and oil temps stayed around 150-160 the whole drive down, so the heat inside the car didn’t really do anything except warm by right shin.
The first significant snowstorm in the Northeast had passed through over the weekend, and I was trying to avoid any slushy roads for the drive down. Leaving very early meant that the roads were frozen solid and wouldn’t melt until the sun came up.
I took the coastal route to Maryland, figuring all the snow had fallen inland and I was right. South of New York City, the precipitation from the weekend was mostly rain. 250 miles later, I pulled into Radcliffe Motorcars’ door. The first leg to Cavallino was complete!
Just a reminder, I’m looking for a new Vintage Ferrari Project. If you have, or know of a restoration project, please let me know. It would be great to restore another car on this website! My E-mail.
