    That is a good question. I will see if I can get Frazer(director) to chime in here and answer your question.

    A link to the video has made it's way to the Ferrarichat vintage section and concensus there is that is is a replica but a good one. I tried to load a picture of my Dad's old 62 250SWB chassis 3605gt but it fell over when I clicked on attach file below. Here is a link with pictures to a blog I wrote the car a few years ago you can compare and contrast the shape of the two cars - apologies my blog writing has improved a lot since then and the formate wasn't updated when the site was updated last year :) http://www.drivecult.com/blogs/grand-touring/memories-of-a-ferrari-250swb

    Okay after staring at the picture all week I've finally realised what is wrong with the car. It doesn't have any quarterlights (or vent windows if you prefer). Early SWB's didn't have quarterlights but they also had a more pronounced curve in the top of the door frame (as in the SWB previously featured on Petrolicious). This was changed sometime in 1960 to a straighter door frame and a quarterlight. Sorry to geek on about this but it's been bugging me since the video was published.

    No worries, geeking out over cars here is perfectly acceptable!

    Thanks for asking and keen eye! This is indeed a re-bodied 250 GTE. It is an alloy bodied SWB Competizione replica, but all Ferrari. It was actually in Andy's shop getting a 5spd swapped in over the factory 4spd as the owner wanted something he could cruise on the highway with! Definitely not something one would do to an original, but it is an amazing car and very well done. According to Andy, it looks and drive very closely to an original SWB.

    I am sure this was done on purpose as the real competition cars with sliding perspex windows did have the quarterlight eliminated too! Type "ferrari sebring arents" to google picture search see a red one being raced in the day!

    Every time I watch one of these types of videos, they just makes me cry tears of happiness. People are passionate to their cars and jobs. It's just fascinating.

    Uggghhhh. After graduating form college, Andy worked at his friend's Ferrari shop. After graduating from college, I went to work for an insurance company. Andy - you da man!
