    Speaking of Ferraris in that collection that haven't been seen for a while (if ever?), does anyone have a photo of 07795 from its early life?

    No. It was sold to Brunei in 1989, I believe

    Er....give us a bit of a hint as to what 7795 is - makes it easier to search!

    Do you have any more photos of the three Testarossa or know the reg of the right hand one?

    B456OPF was the fifth Testarossa imported in RHD, so the others are probably very early cars too. The middle car has an EE plate, so that will be hard to track down, but the right hand one looks to have a normal reg on it. Any ideas?

    Wow, what a photo!

    Checking in old Club magazines, the Birtsmorton Court concours was in 1986, and some of my photos may be from the 1988 Brocket Hall event.

    Birtsmorton Court must have been 1986 (not 1988), hence these 1985 Testarossas being centre stage. By 1988 there would have been hundreds of them!

    You photos above are all at Brocket Hall. I was at Brocket Hall for the FOC Conc in 1990, but I think it was there in 1989 and 1988 too!

    Also, found another of yours John in the same set:

    No challenge here - a poorly scribbled '2' that appeared as a '7'!

    As many of you know, there were only 7 Ferrari 365GTS/4 Daytona Spyders made and supplied to the UK in Right Hand Drive.

    Here are photos of six cars. Questions:

    1. Are these six out of the seven RHD Daytona Spyders?
    2. Which one is missing?
    3. The picture of the three cars together is on the wall of which dealer?
    4. Anyone got a photo that they can share of the seventh missing car?

    Tuesday challenge for you all.

    Robert

    1. Not sure it is.

    2. The missing car is the ex Reg Parker car.

    3. What was Bramley Motors in Graham Cook's day. Honestly don't know if it is still there.

    4. Yes.

    I don't know which car is in the first picture but guess it is 15909?

    I think the picture of the three cars together must show two genuine spyders and a cut coupe since DMS2 was the original registration of 1JOR and was then subsequently on two different cut cars. I don't know that it was ever on another genuine spyder (which doesn't mean it wasn't).

    I don't think 1JOR was ever on a cut car. Which ones ?

    2. DMS2 is 15841 before it was registered X5
    3. 1JOR is 15917
    4. Is RWH32 15969????
    5. Blue car is 15963

    Indeed! I was suggesting that the middle car in the picture of the three together might not be a genuine spyder.

    I think you might be right on that one JT. [ it took me a while to work out what you meant as its been a long day.] 1 JOR was DMS 2 first, DMS 2 was only on one genuine Spyder so it must be a converted car [is that right]?

    For sure the photo on page 2 of DMS is a genuine Spyder, you can tell by the rabbit on the dash LOL.

    Being a little more serious, you can tell by the shape of the steel inner wings when looking at the engine bay of DMS 2 on page two.

    Anyway, I am in heaven with all these Daytona Spyder photos, thank you all so much for posting them up.
    Please can you tell me the chassis number of the missing car/s ?

    NO. The middle car in the picture which is red with red seats is 15841. This car is pictured on page 2 when it was DMS2. This picture of the three cars is on the wall at Bramley, whose founder and owner for many years still owns 15841, now registered X5.

    This makes me think all three cars in the picture are genuine spiders????

    There is something strange going on.
    As far as I can tell, 1 JOR has always had red seats, yet in the photo it has not?

    Ok this is where I am getting confused because I have 15841 registered DMS2 then 1JOR (between 1982 and 1987) then X5. I don't have 1JOR associated with 15917. Was 1JOR on both at different times? Of course, Grant is quite right that the middle car has red seats which does seem to confirm it as 15841 (and prove me wrong).
