These are reproductions of three different voltage regulators from the late 1950s through the early 1960s. The decals are mounted so that the top of the writing faces the bottom of the mounting surface as the regulator is attached to the electrical panel. The voltage regulator information is not contained on the build sheets and the changes were probably made by Pininfarina to adjust the electrical system to the additional electrical equipment of the later cars.

Most of the serious restorers use reproduction batteries designed to look like the orginial “Tar Top” ones. Ferrari used batteries from several different manufacturers. The correct battery for a particular car can be found on page four on the cars that have “build sheets”. If the build sheet information is not available I suggest that you look in Keith Bluemel’s wonderful book Original Ferrari V 12, 1965-1973. The batteries are listed along with most of the major electrical components. The reproduction batteries usually have a 4″x6″ smooth panel, on the long side, for the manufacturer’s logo. When you call for a reproduction battery you will need to know all of the dimensions, the positive and negative post layout and which side you want to use for the logo. A sketch helps. The battery company people cannot relate to Ferrari models and will be looking for this information. 4″x6″ reproduction manufacturer’s logos for batteries. Magneti Marelli..used on a lot of the older cars over the years
With the introduction of the Daytona series Ferrari began using a large foil service sticker on the top of the air cleaner. This sticker is 70x120mm, has “Warning” on the sides and lists the service intervals for the emission control components. It is mounted on the top of the air cleaner, in the front, turned so that it can be read from the rear of the engine. A lot of these types of details can be seen on the Daytona registry web site www.daytonaregistry.com. Daytona Air Cleaner Service Sticker
The very earliest Daytonas continued to use the red coils with the silver foil rectangular Magneti Marelli stickers. Later cars used the gold cadmium-plated steel cans and this blue/gold foil sticker. This one is from the Gold Daytona Spider #14383, one of the most orginial and complete cars in the world. During the production of the Daytonas the Fiat’s involvement in the production cars resulted in a lot of changes as did the new safety and emissions regulations imposed by the European countries and the U.S. government. The Daytona Registery www.daytonaregistry.com is the best information available to document these changes. Blue/Gold Daytona coil stickers.
