Items pertaining to Scaglietti bodied Ferrari cars
This is a vintage 1955 photo of Piero Taruffi in his # 727 Ferrari 118LM (S/N 0484LM) chasing Cesare Perdisa in his # 728 Maserati 300S Fantuzzi (S/N 3054) during the 1955 Mille Miglia.
Given the fact that the race number indicates the actual starting time (i.e. 727 started at 7.27 AM; 728 at 7.28 AM) Taruffi already made up 1 minute on Perdisa so this must be rather early on in the race and Perdisa even finds time to wave at the crowd.
Eventually none of the two cars & drivers would make it to the finish; Taruffi dropping out after exactly 5 hours, 4 minutes and 54 seconds with a broken oil pump and Perdisa a mere 15 minutes later for reasons unknown to us.
Both cars survive to this day.
The photo measures some 22 x 17 cm or 8.7 x 6.7 inches and carries the stamp of the photographer on the back.
This is a vintage photo, i.e. it was printed shortly after the image was captured on film.
Only 1 available.

Vintage 1955 photo of Ferrari 750 Monza S/N 0514M - Goodwood 9 Hours - Jonneret / Wharton.
This is a vintage photograph of the Ferrari Monza 750 of Ken Wharton & Jacques Jonneret en route to a DNF in the 1955 Goodwood 9 Hours.
The car was owned by Ken Wharton who got killed in it at Ardmore, New Zealand on January 12, 1957.
One source mentions no further racing activities with it but we found some information that later on the car was apparently owned by Bill Thomasen of New Zealand who raced it quite extensively in NZ during 1960 & 1961.
After this, the car got a Chevrolet Corvette engine implanted and now seems to reside at a NZ museum.
The photo measures some 11.5 x 9 cm or 8.5 x 6.5 inches.
The back carries NO photographer's stamp.
This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.

After this race Ferrari sold the car to the USA where it still seems to linger but missing its original engine.
In the foreground we see the # 106 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR (S/N 0005/55) of Desmond Titterington and John Fitch who would finish the race in 4th position.
The photo measures some 5.5 x 3.5 inches or 13.5 x 9 cm and is in excellent condition. The back carries the photographer's stamp.

The car was raced extensively during the 1956 in the hands of Musso, Schell, Fangio, Castellotti, Collins, Hawthorn and de Portago.

Vintage 1956 photo of Ferrari 860 Monza S/N 0628M - Olivier Gendebien - Alfonso de Portago - Nurburgring 1000 KM.
This is a vintage 1956 photo of the Ecurie Francorchamps entered (other sources say it was a factory entry) Ferrari 860 Monza of Olivier Gendebien and Alfonso de Portago en route to a... disqualification due to "outer assistance received" during the 1956 Nurburgring 1000 KM race.
The car is seen here on the start-finish straight while it overtakes the # 21 Porsche 550 RS of Count Woflgang Berghe von Trips and Umberto Maglioli (chassis number 38).
After this race, the car would continue its life as a 290 MM. It was crashed in 1957 and converted to the pontoon style front end that it still sports today.

This is rather famous shot of Juan Manuel Fangio just having completed the grueling 1956 edition of the Mille Miglia.
It concerns a vintage 1956 print of this image and it was used by a contemporary magazine, given the scribbling on the rear.
Fangio drove his Ferrari 290MM 0626 to a 4th place overall.
The race was famously won by Eugenio Castellotti, also on 290MM, followed by Peter Collins, also on 290MM, who had photographer Louis Klemantasky on board, followed by Luigi Musso on 860 Monza. Olivier Gendebien brought his 250 GT LWB home in th place, making it effectively a 1-2-3-4-5 for Ferrari!
Fangio's car, S/N 0626, was auctioned in December 2015 in New York.
The photo measures some 18 x 12 cm or 9 x 5 inches and carries NO copyright stamps.

As far as known, this was the car's last racing outing and it now seems to reside in the USA.
The photo measures some 29.5 x 20 cm or 12 x 8 inches and is in near mint condition bar (non-sticky!) glue residue on the back.
