Re: GTE Headliners

Ok , well it seem my rather beautifully trimmed fabric headliner is not factory standard.
On the other hand it is far too nice to change.
2837 GT's concours career maybe at and end.

GTE Headliners

At this years FOC UK concours I lost points for non original carpets and headliners. Carpets have been addressed in the 250 GTE Carpet kit thread. So let's look up and consider head liners here. The 2 lower pictures from 2837 GT show my lining, a beige felt like material constant with my interior be...

Re: 250 GTE Carpet Kits

Sorry, Tom I was responding to Tom Wilson's post where he says he has an aluminium plate to the side of the accelerator.
I was asking if it's similar to that pictured as part of the O'Rourke carpets pictured in my earlier post. It seems that might be standard for later cars.

Re: 250 GTE Carpet Kits

Tom, your aluminium panel is it similar to the O'rourke metal plate pictured above?

Re: 250 GTE Carpet Kits

Here is picture of 2837 Gt (series1) carpets. Still not clear why the lost me points at the FOC concours. They have plastic protection which seems correct for early cars, a separate piece of carpet behind the pedals, the correct cut away around the pedals and so on. Clearly they aren't the original ...

Re: Tom's Party at Quail

Great to see everybody, Tom's party reminds me that behind the glitz and show of the week its essentially just about people and cars.
Thanks to Tom !

Re: 250 GTE Carpet Kits

Good to know, the plastic protection looks too cheap to be anything other than genuine. 8)

Re: 250 GTE Carpet Kits

Thanks Tom,
My car does have the same pattern around the pedals as yours and the same separate section behind the pedals.
Do you know if yours ever had the clear plastic covering to side of the gas pedal? Was this standard I wonder?
I have seen it on a few cars.

Re: 250 GTE Carpet Kits

Recently my car was marked down at the FOC UK concours for non original carpets. I may seek to rectify this but have yet to find out what the issue was. The below show 3 pictures of driver side foot wells from various GTE. The bordeaux and blue carpets are from 4683 and 3079 (thanks to Suzie Pilking...

Re: Ferrari 250 GTE Stolen

Picked up the new copy of "Octane" today, this story and the car 's numbers are carried in the magazine. Good to see, difficult for the thieves to ever sell any significant part of this car. If I were advising them , it would be to take the reward for this highly visible prize and skulk back into th...

Makes sense, my car was restored in Italy in the 90's.
Possibly aquired a new ignition and SILCA keys then.

Re: 1960's Ferrari Keys

Gentlemen , thank you for your help. So The original keys came with plastic covered heads. I am not inclined to pay up so much for CEAM blanks that may be incorrect anyway. If I see blanks similar in style to the Giobert ones for a reasonable price I will pounce. Over the weekend the headlamp switch...
