Ferrari 250 GTO 64 S/N 4399GT 1963 Memorabilia
Vintage 1965 photo of Ferrari 250 GTO S/N 4491GT and 250 GTO 64 S/N 4399GT - 1000 KM Nurburgring.
This is a vintage photo of TWO Ferrari's GTO in ONE shot!
It was taken during the 1965 1000KM race at the Nurburgring and shows the # 64 Ferrari 250 GTO (S/N 4491) of Peter Sutcliffe which he shared with "Lumsden" for this race and who made it to first-in-class and 15th overall and the # 65 Ferrari 250 GTO 64 (S/N 4399) of Gordon Durham which was raced by Salmon / Kerrison and who were forced to retire with engine trouble.
Both cars have an interesting history...
S/N 4399GT started its life as a "normal" 250 GTO and was rebodied to "64" shape in late 1963 by Scaglietti. It seems to reside in the UK nowadays.
S/N 4491GT also started out as a normal 250 GTO and was originally owned by David Piper who had the roofline and windscreen lowered which is clearly visible in this picture. It was changed back to a standard 250 GTO roofline by its current owner in the early 1980's. It now seems to reside in Italy.
The photo measures some 24 x 18 cm or 9 x 7 inches.
The back carries the photographer's stamp.
This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.
Only 1 available.

Vintage 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans Race Program.
The cover shows the start of the 1963 race with plenty of Ferraris hurtling down the start-finish straight towards the Dunlop Bridge.
It measures some 21 x 27 cm and counts 112 pages which are filled to the brim with information on the cars, the race and of course great period advertising.
The booklets also served as a ticket in the grand prize draw and, consequently, they were individually numbered with this being number 009204 but it might be a little late to claim your prize now...
It is in very good condition for its age and carries some notes on the individual contenders on the lap sheet.
The race itself was won by Jean Guichet & Nino Vaccarella in their # 20 Ferrari 275P (S/N 0816) with a total of 4695 KM to their name.
