Ferrari 375 MM Memorabilia
1954 Ferrari 375 MM Spider Sales Brochure Merritt 117 in English.
This is an original 1954 oversized postcard / sales flyer for the Ferrari 375 Mille Miglia as listed in Richard Merritt's book on page 117 - 118.
The front shows a great shot S/N 0460AM (believed to be the oldest Ferrari still in the hands of its original owner / family) while the rear falsely shows the caption "410 Superamerica" along with the specs in English.
This is what Richard Merritt wrote about it:This fantastic Ferrari 375 MM Farina roadster, number 0460-AM, (and here mis-named as a 410 SA), is still in the hands of the original owner and looks this nice even today. It is felt that the specifications, which show data for a 410 version, indicate an intention at the time to produce a small series which failed to materialize. The only major difference between the 375 and 410 engines was the increased bore, from 84 to 88 millimeters. The fitting of front bumperettes perhaps would indicate that this car was intended primarily for normal street usage. However, there are no provisions for windshield wipers, a top, or easy entrance for the elegantly dressed lady.
As visible in the photos, it carries the stamp of Luigi Chinetti on the back as well as a date stamp (JUL 15 1957).
It is in a more than excellent condition for its age and is a rare opportunity.The photos are of the actual card up for sale so please be your own judge on its condition.
It measures approximately 21 x 15 cm or some 8.5 x 6 inches.
Merritt reference: Pages 117 + 118.
We only have 1 available of course.

This is a vintage 1954 photo of the dashboard and (partially) the engine compartment of the Ferrari 375 MM of Phil Walter and John Fitch shortly before the 1954 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

This particular car received modified liquid cooled brakes by its owner and entrant, Briggs Cunningham.
This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.
The photo measures some 7 x 4.5 inches, is in mint condition.
The back carries the photographer's stamp.

Vintage 1955 COLOR Photograph of Jim Kimberly's Ferrari 375MM S/N 0364AM at the SCCA Beverly Race 4th of July 1955.
The photo can be dated so exactly as in February 1955, the trailer on which he car was being transported flipped over and the 4th of July race was the first race outing after the damage had been repaired but the car raced in bare aluminum... and that is very well recognizable in this photo.
The car was recently auctioned by RM Auctions and set a new record for a 375 MM!
This is a vintage late 1960's or early 1970's print, judging by the other prints that were in this collection.
It measures some 9 x 6 cm or 3.5 x 2.4 inches.

Vintage 1955 Photograph of Duncan Black's Ferrari 375MM S/N 0382AM at the SCCA Beverly Race 4th of July 1955.
The photo can be dated so exactly as the car got a new windshield configuration between February and July 1955 and raced only once with race number 14 in combination with that new windshield and that was at the SCCA Beverly meeting of the 4th of July 1955...
The car raced twice that day, once in race 3 which it didn't finish and once in race 7 in which it came in second in class and third overall.
Black acquired the car in July 1955 and raced it not less that 25 times until he sold it on in 1960. The car now seems to reside in Austria.

Vintage 1955 Photograph of Duncan Black's Ferrari 375MM S/N 0382AM July 1955.
This photo was taken either on the 1st of July 1955 or on the 4th of July 1995.
It can be dated so exactly as the photo belongs to a series that was shot on the 4th of July 1955 at the SCCA Beverly meeting and given the fact that the car did not yet bear its make-shift racing number "14" in this photo, it was short early in the morning of that 4th of July.

The book has a (printed) foreword by Enzo Ferrari and this Ferrari factory issue was never commercially available.
It measures approximately 12.5 x 9 inches.

Here we have a vintage circa 1974 - 1975 Avon bottle of Wild Country After Shave in the shape of a 1953 Ferrari 375 (America?).
The bottle contains 2 fl. oz. of after shave but I don't if you would like to try it...
The set is unused and it is the actual bottle and box that are depicted in the photos.
The box measures some 13 x 5 x 3.75 cm or some 5.1 x 2 x 1.5 inches with the bottle measuring some 12.5 cm in length (some 5 inches).
The bottle itself is made of a dark amber-colored glass with a plastic closure which forms the tail of the car.
Good condition for its age as visible in the pictures.
A GREAT and unusual Ferrari collectible!

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!
