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.

Only 1 available.

Vintage 1955 Photograph of Duncan Black's Ferrari 375MM S/N 0382AM at the SCCA Beverly Race 4th of July 1955

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.

This is a vintage November 1970 print, as it is dated on the white border.

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.

Vintage Photo of Ferrari 195 Inter Vignale Coupe S/N 0099S

Vintage Photo - Ferrari 195 Inter Vignale Coupe S/N 0099S.

This is a vintage photo of Ferrari 195 Inter Vignale Coupe in all its original splendor in ca. 1955 in the USA.

There is little known about the car except its original Italian owner and that it appears to have been in the USA as late as 1986.

Nowadays the engine and chassis seem to have disappeared and the body, which was in pretty bad shape at one stage, was on a 212 Europa Coupe (S/N 0269EU).

In this picture the car sports a 1955 Massachusetts license plate and the setting appears to be correct for that period.

The photo carries a print date stamp of November 1970 on the RH edge.

A truly unique opportunity to acquire a photograph of a "vanished" Vignale Ferrari!

The photo measures some 7.5 x 7.5 cm (or 3 x 3 inches) and is in excellent condition for its age.

Only 1 available.

Please note:
We also have a set of 5 vintage color photos of 0099S, taken in 1954, showing the car in pristine condition. Please do inquire if you want to acquire these extremely rare photos that show great detail in COLOR!

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 1955 Mille Miglia photo Ferrari 118 LM S/N 0484LM and Maserati 300S S/N 3054 Taruffi / Perdisa

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.

1955 Photo of Ferrari 500 Mondial Spyder Pininfarina S/N 0424MD at the Criterium Neige et Glace.

This is a 1955 photo of the 500 Mondial of Mr. Dupont during its last race, the Criterium Neige et Glace in France.

After this rally, Mr. Dupont traded the car with the Ferrari factory on a 500 Mondial Scaglietti which was consequently stamped with the same S/N, 0424MD.

The original 0424MD, the car in this picture, has vanished in the mists of time...

The photo measures some 17.5 x 12.5 cm or some 7 x 5 inches and is in mint condition.

The back carries the stamp of the original press agency.

This appears to be a later print.

Vintage 1955 photo of Ferrari 121 LM S/N 0532LM at the Le Mans 24 Hours Castellotti and Marzotto.

This is a vintage photo of the Ferrari 121LM of Eugenio Castellotti and Count Paolo Marzotto en route to a DNF in the 1955 running of the 24 Heures du Mans.

The car in question, Ferrari 121 LM S/N 0532LM, survives to this day and now seems to reside in Austria.

The photo measures some 11 x 8.5 cm or 4 x 3.5 inches.

The back carries NO photographer's stamp.

This is a vintage print i.e. printed shortly after the image was captured on film.

It is in mint condition for its age.

The 1955 edition of the 24 Heures du Mans is of course most infamous for the horrendous accident with Pierre Levegh's Mercedes which crashed into the main grandstand.

The race was won by Mike Hawthorn and Ivor Bueb in their Jaguar D-Type (S/N XKD505) with a total of 307 laps to their name.

The event was equally dramatic for Ferrari as NONE of the 5 entered cars made it to the finish...

3 Vintage Photos of Ferrari 212 Inter Vignale Coupe S/N 0219EL.

Here we have a set of 3 vintage black&white photos of Ferrari 212 Inter Vignale Coupe 0219EL in all its original splendor in ca. 1955 in the USA.

It appears to be the parking lot of a race track but I've not yet been able to identify the venue.

The car shows a 1954 Texas license plate in these photos so I presume the photos to have been taken in either 1954 or 1955 and the setting appears to be correct for that period and it is in line with other photos that came from the same source.

The car seems to survive in highly original condition and still resides in the USA.

The photos carry a print date stamp of November 1970 on the RH edge.

Each photo measures some 7.5 x 7.5 cm (or 3 x 3 inches) and is in excellent condition for its age.

Only 1 set of 3 photos available.
