this design is very interesting

not an expert - but I think Pinnin proposed both front and rear engine designs to Ferrari - when? - in '67 ?

this car carries design features from both the rear engine proto - the Dino - and the fr engine prototypes ....

so it's a mutt

but a very pretty one ....

the coachbuild forum is devious - lots of rabbit holes to crawl down ...

The de Rethy car styling is a continuation of Pinifarina's top of the line extended nose/ oval opening started in 1957 with the Superfast; and used in all special coachbuilt cars as the 1964 500 Superfast and 1966 365 California Spyder. However, it incorporated the extended C-pillar of the upcoming 1968 Dino. Pf stylists are not well known, but I think all are the work on Aldo Brovarone.

Ah Pico, I can smell the Bondo from here.  After restoring a 1:1 Corvette I know that aroma well.

This is looking excellent! I'm sure you already do, but please take precautions, don't inhale the dust, it's dangerous! This build is going to be amazing!
