Cool! I have only the top variant of the Monogram Ferrari 330 P/LM but since it's such a great car I'll keep an eye out for the bottom variant as well.

yes. the Ferrari 330P/LM (correctly named and registered by NART at the '65 Le Mans due to the use of a 330P/2 engine) came in two different boxes like the Ford GT40. Variations also in regard of the motors used: red "X150", then silver, then with red endbell, then Mabuchi FT16D with nickel plated can (oval hole) and ball bearing.

Interesting that the Monogram logo was changed from the first box to the next! This indicates that the first box was released fairly early in 1966.

 

The extended serial number with suggested retail price of the top kit is SR3211.700. But try as I may I've been unable to find a picture of the serial number bearing side panel of the bottom box. Does that also have the same serial number with the same suggested retail price?

 

:huh:
