This is a set of documents pertaining to # 5901 Ferrari 250LM.
The set consists of the following documents:
Bill of sale (invoice) from SEFAC Ferrari to Luigi Chinetti Motors Inc, dated November 14, 1964. The invoice specifies the car as follows:
"FERRARI" 250 Le Mans automobile, bodied Competition Berlinetta, complete with five wire wheels and tires, set of tools - ENGINE No 5901 CHASSIS No 5901
Color: China Red
Including a crate with 4 spare wheels
Including a carton with spare parts such as valves, valve springs, gaskets etc.
The prices have been erased probably because this invoice has been "living" with the car for quite a while and somebody didn't want everybody to know what Chinetti paid for the car to Ferrari.
It is stamped "Copia", a long declaration + "SEFAC S.p.a." and carries a signature. It comes on original Ferrari invoice letterhead.
The second document is the original bill of lading for this car.
It is dated November 16, 1964 and shows that the car traveled on the "Maria Costa" to New York. Pier of loading was Leghorn. The car weighed in at 950 KGS, the crate was 34 KGS and the carton with spare parts was 10 KGS.
