Would be cool to see the AC Coupe in the comparison too.

Default Wonderful

Sundude,

Thank you for sharing this rare glimpse into history. What a great comparison. Not many will ever see these two in person, let alone next to each other at the same time.

Wow. Priceless, Thank you.

Juan

I was in Philly a couple of years ago on business and made a special point of visiting the museum, which was well worth the trip. I didn't see a 250 GTO, though, and it looks like a recent addition. Will look nice with the Daytona and the Corvette Grand Sport.

I'm puzzled about the color scheme on the Ferrari. It's as if Enzo agreed to the colors after losing a bet in 1966. Looks fantastic to me, but then again, I'm an American!

Thanks for the pics, Sundude! I didn't see those pics on the Simeone Foundation website! I was looking for bigger pics than the ones I saw on the events page.

Were you there Saturday? Hope so, it was an incredible event! I was actually down there for vacation when my daughter found out the Simeone Foundation was down there and it's crazy that the event was happening when I was there.

For those who were not there, it was really, at least for me, a once in a lifetime event since both cars were there.

Yes, both cars are displayed at the museum at present but at opposite sides of the museum in their respective displays BUT this this was a special event in that both cars were in the main presentation area and you could get up close, I mean see touch and smell the cars. I was shaking touching the Daytona. I got a load of up close pics, interior and even under car of the rear suspension. All the pics are on my phone. I'll make a separate thread when I get a chance. There are 5 autographs on the roof of the car including Carroll Shelby and Phil Hill. Phil Hill also signed in another place, a hidden area on the car.

They even started both cars inside the museum. Loved the smell of the exhaust! They didn't rev up the Ferrari so much but they did with the Daytona.

My daughter got the best seat in the house though. She was the only one besides the owner of the car and a couple of workers there that got to sit in the driver's seat of the Ferrari GTO. The wife of the owner asked us if she wanted to sit in the Ferrari for a pic since she was small. They were super nice. The owner of the Ferrari was very blessed in that he not only owns the Ferrari but also owned a Daytona Cobra at one point, I forget which one, I want to say something like CSX 2261? I have it on a video I took when they were giving the presentation. Dr. Simeone was really nice too, very easy to talk to.

Supposedly the Ferrari has an estimated worth of $50 million?!?!!?!?

I wish I could've been there, like you were. But I live a good 450 miles from Philly, so I have the rely on the Interwebs for pics.

I look forward to seeing yours, once you post them.

The Ferrari looks like it has gone through a full restoration, the Shelby looks like it just got done whipping the Ferraries ass on the track.

Does anyone know the number of that GTO? I don't follow them, but have a friend that is a walking encyclopedia on them. He tells me that the 62-63 Series 1 GTO has gone from $15mil to over $30mil in the last 5 years. Nice investment.

The coupes are cool. Does anyone know if anyone ever made a replica of the AC coupe A98. I think that it is the best looking of the coupes.

I heard that the AC A98 coupe was in Scotland,does anyone know if it is just a show piece or if it does vintage racing?

61-63 GTOs are appreciating faster than they were on the track. - the Jump from 16-20M to 35M , and now above is on a significantly northward bend and in a tight time slot as well.

The chassis of GTO displayed at S's looks like # 3387GT - the GTOs are very well documented with basically 0 missing cars.

The S' Daytona displayed looks like 2287' AKA the Cal Metal Shaping car , that was lost for many MANY years. - also called the Prototype, and or the Phil Spector (SP >?) car.

looking at them side by side you can see the aerodynamic learning that took place on the American side of the fence. --

That was the #2 of 39 GTOs made.

In January one sold for $41 million I think. I was told by someone there that the one at the show was worth about $50 million supposedly.

The owner and his wife were super nice people as was Dr. Simeone.
