    Yesterday I’ve heard the following story: During 5899’s conversion to LM-P specification, Hans Illert and Heinz Duss had shortened the frame and drilled holes in the chassis remnants in order to reduce weight, what was the reason why Vic Norman had to use a British replica frame for the rebuild and Ferrari officially stated, that 5899 is registered as destroyed in their books and the Colombo/Vaccari tube is a non original fake.

    Today, 5899 is Red Book certified and much expert supported. Any idea what I get wrong here? And aren’t rather such mysteries the real issues of LM-history and not the hilarious brouhaha with warnings not to buy a ‘first-hand LM’ via internet?
    Schlesser and turbo-joe like this.
