dwall should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Ferrari 512 1048

I would be grateful if anybody can help with the following.
If the car that Parkes and Bonnier drove at Buenos Aires in 1971 was 512M 1048, what was the chassis which was number 8 at the Monza 1000km,the pictures I have of 8 at Monza show it to be an early 512, roof and original rear bodywork. Or maybe P and B drove a different chassis at Buenos Aires ?
does anybody know what date Scuderia Filipinetti began work on 512F
thanks for any help

Haven't found any chassis refs for the #8 Monza car, except barchetta.cc, which I'm not sure is that trustworthy. They say 1048, but have no source reference. Problem is that thhere aren't many other 512s that the no. 8 car could have been

Autosport's report says it had 512M brakes, suspension & engine spec, but the body/chassis were Manfredini's car. So I would guess this was perhaps the remains of Manfredini's 1032, i.e what was leftover when the components of that chassis were rebuilt as 1050.

Heuvink in his Scuderia Flilpinetti book claims 1048 for Buenos Aires and 1022 for Monza, and 1050 for Manfredini/Gagliardi at Monza.I thought 1022 had been used/renamed 1032 to rebuild 1032 after Daytona '70.Guess you could be right that 8 at Monza was a bitza special built from what was left over from the construction of 1050.
thanks for your help

1050 for Gagliardi at Monza is OK.

Like you, I would have thought that 1022 "ceased to exist" after it's rebuild as 1032.

Did this bitza race again after Monza? I've no other 512S occurrence that could have been this one, I don't think.
