Fiat 130 Coupe vs Ferrari 400

Via this Instagram account I found this remarkable hybrid of a Fiat 130 Coupe and a Ferrari 400.  Apparently it's residing somewhere in Sydney:

Yellow Mellow - Ferrari 400i Automatic for sale in the UAE

Via Instagram I spotted this yellow 400i Automatic for sale in the UAE:

Ferrari 400i, non working condition. Ideal as a project car or a donorcar. Location: Abu Dhabi

The asking price is 38.000 USD or € 35.000 

Note the enlarged vent on the bonnet, I guess that's a need to have enhancement in the middle east climate. These VINs; 44183, 44185 and probably 44187 do have this option as well. See this example:

Hamburg Ferrari 400i - poezie album

Found this one on Istagram, how cute is that?

Profielfoto van jenslucking

Way back Wednesday with this timeless Ferrari 400i I found at a Ferrari dealership in Hamburg
when I was eleven years old. Back then, I glued the prints into “Poesie” albums, meant for poems and/or
diaries. I’d write all the information gathered from car magazines, like Auto, Motor und Sport, or from card
games below the photographs.

Daft Punk Ferrari 412

The split up of the Daft Punk band generated quite a few messages on the internet so it was hard to miss. And often the 412 was included with the supporting photo's. At first I ignored it but now even Pininfarina made a FB posting about it. So I'm adding it on todays blog as reference:

Daft Punk on Monday shocked the music industry when they announced that they were disbanding. Our thoughts immediately...

Dutch Magazine : Ferrari Hartstocht - Ferrari 365GT4 2+2 / 400 GT

Never heard or seen this before, might be a one-off magazine dedicated to Ferrari. One of the very few articles I have seen that is making a reference regarding the development of the automatic gearbox, which was done first by C.W. Vandengriff in the USA. See also this blog:

In any case, it's now available in the download folder:

For sale : Ferrari 400 Automatic

 Adding this one for the records and the details of the first owner:

first owner was Shaikh Hamad Duaij al-Khalifa, who seems to be part of the Bahrain royal family. It wasn’t registered in the UK until 4 December 1980 so spent its first 3 years somewhere else – possibly Bahrain. 

S/N 21537 was originally painted Rosso Nearco, a dark red, with Sabbia (Beige) VM 3234 interior that it still has today.

Motorsport 1975 + 1977

 Another nice online photo library I came across via another FB group:

In order to find the right photo's you need to select "automotive images" - apparently not all photo's will show up if you use the default "all images"

Hereby 2 specific queries for the 365 and 400 :

The photo's are very well watermark protected though:

Update 29-8-2021 : Something triggered me to visit this website again. To my surprise I was able to download the photo's without the watermark. So adding the series here for the records:

Exotic Autospares

This Australian company got mentioned in a comment on Facebook:

And yes, they have some used 400 parts on stock, including a complete chassis with body panels.
I have now added them on the sidebar at the "parts" section. Happy part hunting.
