Ferrari had a long relationship with the Shell oil company. A lot of the early cars had some type of metal tag in the engine compartment specifying the type of Shell oil to be used. 212 E-1 Shell Oil Tag, 100mm x 60mm
The later 275 and 330 desings reverted to the crescent-shaped aluminum tags as had been used on the earlier inside-plug 250 cars. The filter element number that is stamped in the “Tipo” block on the tags has changed from “AT4094” on the inside plug 250s to “2228.01” for the 275/330s. 275/330 crescent-shaped air cleaner tag.
Ferrari made a small series of Super cars in the late 1950s. The larger engines required a larger filter element and a different tag was used. This one has the word “RETEX” (net or filter) in the center of the top line. Super America crescent-shaped air cleaner tag.
