I wonder if this one might stump you?

340 America chassis 0202A wearing Devin fiberglass body and sitting on the trailer of Tom Shaughnessy. Here's a photo I took of my old 250 GTE at the same location (Tom's avocado ranch) not long after. Notice the discarded Devin front clip in the background. :)

Well done, I didnít think the Diva body would fool you.

It has been a while since my last visit to AutoPuzzles, and today I'm back just to find this amazing challenge. I already believe it will be almost impossible, but I start with an easy one.

The OP hasn't visited the site for nearly a month. You'll have a long wait. BTW I know the answer!
I must be right - that's what it says on Wikipedia

Wow. I was quite surprised when they told me. Looks like Vallone's Ferrari, but it's not.

If you know the answer then I'm pretty certain gte4289 will as well...

I sent him an email to ask if all is well but I received no reply.

It looks rather like he's fallen out with us by why I have no idea.

I'll start with the hardest nut:
Paul, sorry but I've been ill and so I'm just getting around to this!

5.   I must solve each puzzle within a reasonable period of time (no automatically imposed time limit due to my busy schedule)
An entire month is definitely not a reasonable period of time, so you've earned one point just for that. :thumbsup:

It's almost 1 am here, so I'll look into this one tomorrow. (You'll get a second point if I'm unable to do solve it.) Thanks for playing!

Don't worry at all about this.
Take care and get well soon.
There's plenty of time ;)

Thank you. I believe yor puzzle shows 166 S chassis# 001S of Domenico Tramontana circa 1952. Here are more images of what I believe to be the same car:
