May 1954 Photograph of Ferrari 750 Monza S/N 0440M when new in Maranello

This photo was taken in the courtyard of the Ferrari factory in Maranello in May 1954.

It shows the Ferrari 750 Monza Spider Scaglietti S/N 0440M when it was brand new.

The car would be raced extensively (24 Heures du Mans, 12 Hours of Sebring to name but a few major races) in the hands of such greats as Umberto Maglioli, Froilan Gonzales, Maurice Trintignant, Toulo de Graffenried and Mike Hawthorn.

The car survives to this day and seems to be residing in an important Dutch collection since 1990.

This is a more modern print which measures some 18 x 13 cm or 7 x 5 inches.

Only 1 available.
