There is only one Ferrari 166 bodied by Bertone. This car (#057S) was the 1951 Turin Auto Show car and was also used as the safety car at the GP Vetturette, Monza.
Engine 0210EL was at one time installed; the original engine is also still with the car.
It seems the car still exists, be it in dismantled condition. After the owner's (Gaensdorfer) death a massive law suit about the ownership began.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
