Ferrari 330 America with Chevy 302 ci V8

Joe Allesandrino purchased a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT/E body after all the other parts were stripped and sent to Italy to make a GTO clone. He then installed a Chevy DZ 302 ci V8 from a 1969 Camaro Z/28 connected to a Tremec T-56 six-speed from a Viper and Ford 9″ rear end. The suspension is from Art Morrison and the car is 80 lbs off having a perfect 50/50 weight balance. Besides the body being authentic Ferrari the glass and badges are as well, with one badge alone worth $1,200.

    Gotta’ love this one and ….. the guy’s surname “Allesandrino” did not go unnoticed. He’ll probably have to seek a new ethnic heritage after his ancestors find out about it!

    I love the idea of heads exploding in the purist’s world over this car. I have the perfect license plate; “HATEME”.
    When this is done right, it just makes you smile.
