Vintage 1952 Photo of Ferrari 166 Inter Vignale Coupe S/N 0065S.
This is a vintage photo of Ferrari 166 Inter Vignale Coupe after it had been exported to the USA in 1952.
The car can be seen wearing a 1952 New Jersey license plate which is somewhat contradictory to the "official history" of the car which lists it as having been exported to Florida.
The car had previously been entered in the 1951 Mille Miglia, which it didn't finish, and although it appears to be in pretty good nick on the photo, closer inspection shows it to be somewhat battered.
Nowadays the cars seems to be residing in Italy again.
The photo measures some 12.5 x 10.5 cm (or 5 x 4 inches) and is in more than excellent condition for its age.

In 1954 it was again rebodied, this time by Scaglietti and again as a Spyder.
In recent years it has been brought back to its Abarth body style again.
It seems to reside in the USA now.

Here we have a set of 2 vintage 1970's Polaroid photos of Ferrari 166 Inter Stablimenti Farina Cabriolet S/N 011S.
S/N 011S is the 1949 Geneva Motorshow car and was delivered to famous Italian movie director Roberto Rossellini in March of that year.
The car passed through a number of hands until it ended up with an owner in Massachusetts around 1976. That owner offered it for sale in 1979 and it seems to reside in Nevada since 1984.
Judging by the Massachusetts "Antique" number plate and other photographs that we acquired from the same source, these photos were taken between 1976 and 1979 during a classic car event in the USA.
Although the quality is not that great, one can clearly distinguish several important details and that by this period, the car was no longer in its original "Pea green" livery but red and was missing the front bumper.
Each photo measures some 8 x 8 cm or 3 x 3 inches (standard Polaroid size).
Only 1 set available.

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!
