:D Bill, they aren't just cooling scoops? Are they for tyre(like the Brits say) clearance? :D

Yup George......you get the extra points! :P :rolleyes:

The 330 LMB's had wider tires in the rear than the standard GTO's so Ferrari simply cut out those squares and covered 'em to clear the tires.

Y'know for those hard cornering moves? :rolleyes:

I like how they combined the front end of the Series I GTO but it had the back end of the then new 250 Lusso. (Another one I want someone to kit!)

IIRC, they ran with 4 liter V-12's while the regular GTO's (save for a couple) ran with 3 liter's. I've got a ton of photos of that car, as I'd like to build a right hander if someone ever makes a decent kit of it. :rolleyes:

Hey, I was right!

I LOVE this car! This is a 1963 Ferrari 330 LMB...........one of only 4 made. There was a 5th one, but it was actually a rebodied 250 GTO (no doubt previously crashed) as it was still on the shorter 250 GTO chassis.

I hope with the recent spate of new vintage Ferrari kits..........someone will finally see fit to kit this one!

Extra points for you guys if you can say why the car has those curious square bulges in the rear fenders. ;) :o

Agree and I was right too! :lol: Something was just REAL for me. Didn't fool me! ;)

So the buldge is kind of like the NASCAR Superbirds. :P

You know what's funny, you can have fun with a 2-4L 12 cylinder, everybody just knows the new high litre engines they think these are ######. :lol: :o Give me an old Ferrari over a new one ANYDAY!
