  1963 Ferrari  250 GTO Replica

       

Actually, the name is "250  GT SWB Supercompettezione/1962"  and somebody mistakenly wrote "GTO" on an entry form, and the name stuck. 

 

Ferrari 250 GTO from Blue Ray Engineering is a replica of the real thing, which you could buy for only $55 million.

My car starts with a Datsun 280Z chassis. I will add an  Aluminium/gibreglass front clip, doorskins and rear clip, rebuilt suspension and wheels, and refurbished Interior, and a red paint job. I will add some extras like plexi headlight covers, Chrome trim rings for the headlamps, also new door and trunk handles and authentic/vintage hood hold-downs.

When I got it


 

 

   September 2016! 

 

Door Handles:  the guys from Hibridz.org are working on a way to adapt MG boot locks for door handles.

WIRING DIAGRAM!!  I recently got a good scan off my copy of the

1978 280Z ‘federal version’ wiring diagram (Mitchell's version).  It's only 400kB in size.  It's the one I'm using on my 1978 280Z and you're welcome to try a copy.  It's in TIFF format, which is viewable using the Microsoft Imaging program, or your favourite photo viewer (I prefer Irfanview.)  Please use with caution, because I can't be responsible if it doesn't match what's on your car.

 Download your copy  here.  I accept the responsibility as stated above.
