Vintage 1976 photo of Ferrari 225 Sport Vignale Berlinetta S/N 0152EL.
This is a vintage October 1976 color photo of the Ferrari 225S S/N 0152EL at what looks to be an Italian Ferrari meeting.
In the background there is a Fiat van with Italian license plates and right behind the 225 S are two more classic Ferrari's, one being a 250 PF Coupe carrying racing number 33.
The setting looks to be a race track (Monza?).
Although the photo was printed in October 1976, it was probably taken a little bit earlier in the year. Maybe someone can identify the event and / or the other cars in the picture.
S/N 0152EL was raced extensively throughout its early life, competing in the 1952 Mille Miglia, GP de Monaco, 24 Heures du Mans and the Tour de France Auto.
The photo was taken during the brief ownership of Giuseppe Medici from Reggio Emilia. The car now seems to reside in Brescia, Italy.
The photo measures some 13 x 9 cm or 5 x 3.5 inches and is in mint condition. There are NO references to the photographer.
This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.
Only 1 available.

Vintage 1952 photo of Ferrari 225 Sport Vignale Berlinetta S/N 0164ED.
This is a vintage July 1952 photo of the Ferrari 225S of Mr. Kleber, driven by Jean Lucas to victory in the Sables d'Olonne with race number 112.
It is interesting to see that the car carries the (painted) temporary Italian license plate on the front which reads "BO 11890" which was a carry-over from the previous Italian owner, Franco Bordoni.
This number contradicts other sources which mention "BO 11891".
Somewhere in the mid-1950's the car was exported to the USA where it apparently still resides.

Sterzi partnered up with Nino Rovelli for the race but unfortunately the duo didn't make it to the finish line...

Vintage 1952 Le Mans Race Program.
Decent condition for its age with some visible wear & tear to the cover (see pictures).
The design of the 1952 program cover came from world-renowned motorsport artist Geo Ham who opted for the symbolic approach. The place is the the Esses with the major contenders (Jaguar, Aston Martin and Cunningham) storming towards the Tertre Rouge turn in controlled slides...
The race was won by Herrmann Lang and Fritz Riess in their Mercedes Benz 300 SL with a total of 277 laps to their name.
For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1952.

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!
