Need some help with identifying what year is this Ferrari? Early 50's I presume.

I'm pretty sure it's from 60's.

Looks like a Ferrari 312/68 as it was used in the early races of 1968, before the wings arrived at Monaco.

Moved the thread to Nostalgia, as it's more than likely to find confirmation there :)

I'd agree. Ferrari 312 from early 1968.

Looks like the 67 Ferrari. See this link: http://www.ferrari.i...=F1&CAR_ID=2023

The difference between it and the 68 from the picture I could see was that the 68 had a rear wing.

I am not a nostalgia nut so I also defer to the comment Marcel Schot made.

Garth, looking at the pictures from that site, it looks more like the 1966 312 to me. Still there are some differences.

I defenetly think it's a 312 from 1968, with no wings. Here is a pic of the 68 Ferrari from Ferrari.it.

You can look at the rear view mirrors, the rear suspention and the "flaps" on the front (cant find a better name for them...).

Nah, can't be a 1966 one. Totally different backend as well as multiple 'air intakes' on the front.

The number is still different though

Since obviously numbers were given on a race by race basis :)

According to this year's Monterey Historics Program, this car
belongs to Todd Morici. It is in fact chassis #0007. It was one of the chassis Derek Bell drove. He fact he drove it at Goodwood
last, I believe.

This photo was taken at the Historic Grand Prix tent at this
year's race.

That little grey #10 sticker says it was at Goodwood recently.

If it's 0007, it is a 1967 car updated to 1968 specification. It was driven eight times by Chris Am*n and twice by Derek Bell.

Just to tie in David's and Allen's posts - I can confirm it is the Morici car, chassis number 0007 and it was at Goodwood this year, numbered 10. Saw it there with my own eyes - an impressive piece of kit!:)

A March 701, if I am not mistaken.

Thanks for all your help! I took this picture but forgot to note what year was it. Should have looked at the Historic Race's www site. Doh!

D Kane - I guess you were at the Historic Race also. That was my first time. Had one heck of a time out there. But was there on Sunday instead of Saturday...so I missed the F1 race. :(

Believe the blue car is a March. If any of you want to digress more, I can put a better picture up.

March 701 - an ex-Tyrrell car judging from the bodywork.

But I think it's actually David Hankin's 701/10.

0007 was the first 312 Ferrari to have 4-valves per cylinder. you can distinguish it from the earlier 3-valve cars by the fact that the inlet valves are outside the camshafts. The earlier cars had the inlets between the cams.

I think Allen is right about the March. The colour is too light for Tyrrell; see the Tyrrell car behind.
