    what wheelbase is best for F40 replica?

    I want to make a replica of F40 but using another ferrari as wheelbase. The F355 as 2451 mm the same as F40 but in some post said that the best donnor is 308/328... In this car is need to strech the chassis... What is better donnor F355 or 328? 328 is better by tilting the front window and ceiling height or why? Anybody can make a photoshop of the F40 with both whellbases?

    thanks

    Patata here is the other idea I had but I couldnt find one. The Ferrari mondial is longer but you could alway shorten the wheel base. its always easier to shorten than lengthen. if you can get a F355 to build one then by almeans go for it..Later

    thanks for reply Luke.

    In Spain, the Mondial have a price of 25000€ aprox. The F355 or 348 (1 mm less in wheelbase) is 35000€-40000€ but I don´t need to strech the wheelbase.

    What do you do, buy the Mondial or the 355? In Spain, strech a chassis have very laws problems

    If I had the money I would get the 348 or 355 an just drive that..because its a real one. Im not sure of the laws but if you bought a rebuildable 348 or 355 then I would build that. If you still want a f40 then I would use a salvaged 348 or 355 as long as the chassis is not damaged. What are the laws regarding building a car from scratch. Also a 308 or 328 wouldnt be a bad start but the wheel base is either 3 or 4 inches too short but the center section is the same size as a real f40. If you look at this web site it give you an idea how this guy altered the suspension to get the car the size he wanted for the 288 gto. As u probably know the 288 gto is the same size as a f40..Good luck if you have anymore questions and I can help feel free to ask..later Luke here is the web site http://members.home.nl/bertkanters/index.htm
