Vintage 1956 photo of Ferrari 860 Monza S/N 0628M - Olivier Gendebien - Alfonso de Portago - Nurburgring 1000 KM.
This is a vintage 1956 photo of the Ecurie Francorchamps entered (other sources say it was a factory entry) Ferrari 860 Monza of Olivier Gendebien and Alfonso de Portago en route to a... disqualification due to "outer assistance received" during the 1956 Nurburgring 1000 KM race.
The car is seen here on the start-finish straight while it overtakes the # 21 Porsche 550 RS of Count Woflgang Berghe von Trips and Umberto Maglioli (chassis number 38).
After this race, the car would continue its life as a 290 MM. It was crashed in 1957 and converted to the pontoon style front end that it still sports today.
It now seems to reside in the USA.
The photo measures some 18 x 13 cm or 7 x 5 inches and carries NO copyright stamps.
It is in mint condition.
Only 1 available.
