Unofficial reveal, of the Italeri (Testors) Ferrari 250 GTO Spyder.   WIP:  Italeri/Testors Ferrari 250 GTO Spyder  The factory never built a Spyder of the famous GTO, two cars were coach built on average Ferrari chassis (is there such a thing?).  I saw the convertible twice, once in my town when the Copperstate Rally parked downtown, and at a Monterrey Historics.  This is not an exact replica, added some features such as the roll bar.

Not any easy conversion, turned out great.

Thank you!  I've done a few, this Vehicross was more of a challenge.

The Mercedes 170V Roadster was more challenging.  So this was really a piece of cake.

Although it is sacrilege to take the roof off a GTO, you did a fine job and it is perfectly in the spirit of the NART convertibles. And I love yellow Ferraris!

I'm surprised how many GTOs are being replicated.  Thank you.

I enjoyed seeing it come together in the WIP thread. Great to see it completed, the finished result looks fantastic. Super-smooth job done on the rear bodywork.

Thank you!

Turned out great.  Cool idea and very well executed.

Thanks!  Not my idea, was inspired by someone else who dared to spend a fortune.
