Beware perfidious Frogs.
1959 DB Panhard HBR5 'Camionnette'- Pretty sure I overtook it on the Mulsanne in the early hours back in 2016…..

Personally I think that some of the most beautiful cars ever made are from Italy, and this selection of Ferraris is quite stunning. I am sure that not all will agree but it would be shame if we did. How many millions woudl you ned to own one of these?

Thank you for leaving the breadvan out, in my opinion a contradiction to the above.....

GTO’s OK, but 250SWB perfectly proportioned, 275GTB long-nose just perfect...

Don’t suppose anyone has a pic of the green David Piper GTO with the lowed roofline? Returned to original spec subsequently, I believe?

Well done for the DB which you could call a breadvan too, Mike. One other strange DB was the "Vitrine", rather nice seen from behind imo.
If you're talking about chassis # 4491 GT, may be its this one:
http://www.passion-fred.fr/ferrari/2...gt/4491gt.html
As you suppose it went back to its original body before certification.
If you click on "making of" its about a report model.

From this website, the mods were made on 4491 GT, 28th model produced, delivered new in England on the 7th of June 19631, color "BP Green" and RHD. Is this what you were thinking about? It is said that DP bought it to replace 3767 GT, sold to an American gentleman, and campaigned it in '63 with a win at 9 Hours of Kialami in November co-driver Tony Maggs, race number 8, after a race at Luanda.

You say lowered roof line, it must be more than right with no less than 15 centimeters ( is that 6 inches). Seems the second owner, Peter Sutcliffe, was too tall to drive it comfortably, hence a bubble on the roof…

Thanks Gerard, when you see pics of the car with ‘chop’ and without, it’s noticeably different!

Must be a brave man that takes a hacksaw to a GTO......

Its either brave or totally unconscious! I'm not in the market of the 50 M cars but can't understand why they brought it back to its former shape. Its not "more" authentic like that… May be an Italian job to rewrite history. What do I know?

Hehehe .... a Gurney 'bubble'. Not to be confused with Gurney's 'bubbly incident' at Le Mans.

Yes, it's disappointing the car doesn't retain the low roof, but guess Ferrrari Classiche wouldn't even consider such vandalism when authenticating the car for a subsequent owner…..

Maybe a well-healed racer could have a replica built!

Yes certainly we could find an officina to bring back history!

E.B, you're not talking about champagne here, are you? So what happened to this fantastic Daniel Sexton…

‘La Vitrine’ a bit later, I believe? I find those tiny engined aerodynamic Le Mans ‘specials’ fascinating- maybe you should start a thread in History to talk about them!

Edit- Vitrine before Camionnette?
