Vintage 1962 Photo of Ferrari 246 SP S/N 0796 at the Targa Florio.
This is a vintage 1962 photo of the 246SP, S/N 0796, during preparation for the 1962 Targa Florio.
The car would win the race, driven by Willy Mairesse, Ricardo Rodriguez and Olivier Gendebien.
The car in question is the 246 SP S/N 0796 which was later modified to serve as a mule for the Tipo 250 P and crashed during practice for the 1963 Targa Florio. The car burnt out completely and was assumed to have been scrapped although parts of it seem to survive.
In the background we see the # 108 Porsche 718 GTR of Nino Vaccarella and Jo Bonnier which would finish 3rd overall.
This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.
The photo measures some 5.5 x 3.5 inches or 13.5 x 9 cm and is in excellent condition. The back carries NO photographer' stamp.
Only 1 available.
