This Custom Modified 1962 Ferrari GTO Spyder Clone, which was built on a 1972 Datsun 240z chassis, can be viewed in Canoga Park, CA (San Fernando Valley)
Car is 90% finished, Needs convertible top installed.
I am currently building a quasi-replica of one of the rarest and finest vehicles ever produced. The 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO. It's not an exact replica because I decided to go with the Velo Rossa™ Spyder by VR Engineering. One of the most obvious external differences between the VR and a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO is that the VR is a spyder and the original GTO is a coupe. The Velo Rossa™ re-body kit fits over a Datsun Z donor car. Any Z car manufactured between 1970 and 1978 will do as long as it's not a 2+2. I might add that in the minds of most, if not all automotive enthusiasts there can be no mechanical comparison between a Ferrari and a Datsun! Ferrari is in a league of it's own. The VR simply attemps to capture the stylistic essence of the 1962 250. Personally, I like the idea of cruising around town in a car that will turn the heads of... Everybody!!! The Z car is a true sports car in it's own right and adding a fantastic body like the VR just increases the pleasure.
I was surfing the web looking for something else and stumbled across this stunning illustration of a Velo Rossa™ (complete with custom badge) by Ed White of Fast Eddie's Hot Rod Art in Houston, TX. Check him at at www.FEHRArules.com or search for "Fast Eddie's Hot Rod Art" on Facebook.
A customer produced video of the Velo Rossa™!
The bodywork you sent is very nice stuff! It would be done and on the track for the Seattle Majors Memorial Day weekend
