May 1954 Photograph of Ferrari 750 Monza S/N 0440M when new in Maranello

This photo was taken in the courtyard of the Ferrari factory in Maranello in May 1954.

It shows the Ferrari 750 Monza Spider Scaglietti S/N 0440M when it was brand new.

The car would be raced extensively (24 Heures du Mans, 12 Hours of Sebring to name but a few major races) in the hands of such greats as Umberto Maglioli, Froilan Gonzales, Maurice Trintignant, Toulo de Graffenried and Mike Hawthorn.

The car survives to this day and seems to be residing in an important Dutch collection since 1990.

This is a more modern print which measures some 18 x 13 cm or 7 x 5 inches.

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.

Vintage June 1955 Domenica del Corriere Alberto Ascari deadly crash in Ferrari at Monza

Vintage June 1955 Domenica del Corriere Alberto Ascari deadly crash in Ferrari at Monza

Vintage June 1955 Domenica del Corriere on the Alberto Ascari deadly crash.

This is a vintage & original June 5 1955 issue of Italian magazine "Domenica del Corriere" which pays attention to the untimely death of Italian racing ace Alberto Ascari.

On May 26, 1955 Alberto tried out the Ferrari 750 Monza (S/N 0562M) which he was to share with Eugenio Castellotti at the Autodromo di Monza. In the third lap, the car started to skid inexplicably, somersaulted and Alberto was slung from the car onto the track where he died a couple of minutes later.

The (fast!) corner where this accident happened, the "Curva di Vialone", was later renamed "Variante Ascari" in his honor.

Since there is no photographic account of the accident itself or the aftermath, the magazine had to make do with a more than excellent and very dramatic artist's impression which shows Alberto being slung from the car. That image is used on a full page which makes it excellently suited for framing.

Furthermore, there is a full page account of the accident including drawings of the path of the car and it pays attention to earlier, similar, accidents and the crash of Alberto's father, Antonio Ascari, at Montlhery in 1925.

Excellent condition for its age!

Vintage 1950s Ferrari Coach Built Upholstery Brush

1950's Ferrari Coach Built Upholstery Brush.

This is a 1950's brush which I believe wasn't made or issued by Ferrari themselves but by a 3rd party, most probably a coachbuilder.

It is about 6 inches or 15 cm long.

The base is made of white celluloid with the Ferrari logo in relief on the top.

Good condition for its age.

Would make a GREAT accessory for you vintage or classic Ferrari!
