Happy Searching
Jay


Hi Jay,
Congratulation to this, how many red script boxes do exist? Can you post a picture of your collection of those F-boxes please?

Hi Superfast, There are 6 total red script boxes.
#14. Ferrari Berlinetta
#15. Volkswagen 1500
#33 Lamborghini Miura ( my newest and last find )
#41 Ford GT
#62 Mercury Cougar
#67. Volkswagen 1600 TL

I will try to get some clear photos to post. Because of the way I have 5 of 6 displayed I will have to take photos through the glass. To actually get to them I have to take top part of the cabinet off ( a real pain ). Of course, I need to do that to put 6th car and box into that part of cabinet. Maybe I'm lazy but I can blame that on age.

Hi Jay,
thanks for the info. So I have 4/6 boxes. I have to look for the 14 Iso Grifo and a 41 Ford GT.
Meanwhile I've got a Japan Miura Picture Box (the colour box) - thanks to Rob.
Regards
SF

Hi Superfast, good luck with the hunt. And yes the #14 is the ISO Grifo , not the Berlinetta. My typo.

Regards, Jay
