Here is an excerpt from the other discussion;
"I got both the Heritage Certificate and buildsheets for my 1964 330 thru the Ferrari Owner's site. You have to prove legal ownership first, then go thru their procedure, which involves proving to Ferrari that the car you own is the same car described in the buildsheets and that all major components are those originally installed. It has to be a "numbers matching" car. I'm sure that the buildsheets are available to the owner of any Ferrari for which they exist - I have no idea of the manufacture date or s/n after which they are not available, or if such a restriction exists.
The Heritage Certificate is just a nice looking Certificate of Authenticity of sorts - Ferrari has a new certification program that requires much more extensive proof of authenticity and payment of around $500.00.
I think the purpose is to raise the bar or provide a standard for competitive show events.
On the positive side, I think they will issue the new certificate for cars that have non-original major components such as engine, trans, diff, etc., whereas the car must be numbers-matching for the buildsheet/Heritage Cert. program.
My buildsheets are emailed facsimiles and are in pretty poor condition-about half of the printing is illegible. I don't know how common this is-
I have seen others in better shape than mine."
