The earliest Ferraris used a simple hand former aluminum scoop. The later 166s had a cast aluminum “Ram’s horn” assembly with a louvered aluminum can at each end. This assembly was made by the Weber carburetor company in Bologna. Most of the aluminum castings have a small tag riveted to the top surface at the center. Some did not. The very early street cars used only a single carburetor but this configuration was soon changed to the more familiar three carburetor set-up. Early Weber “Ram’s horn” air cleaner tag.
In the early 1950s the “street” cars used three of the two-barrel Weber carburetors. The air cleaner assemblies were supplied by F.I.S.P.A with a small aluminum F.I.S.P.A tag riveted to the tops. Two-Barrel early regtangular F.I.S.P.A air cleaner tag.
