Official 1997 50 Years Ferrari Tabard for Photographer

1997 50 Years Ferrari Tabard for Photographer

A VERY VERY scarce Ferrari item...

This is an official tabard to be worn by a photographer during the "50 Years Ferrari" celebrations in 1997 on Sicily.

It shows of course the famous "50" logo designed by Enzo Naso along with the Ferrari shield logo and 1947 - 1997.

It was issued specifically for the events that took place on Sicily and did not give access to any of the other events.

Press admittance was VERY strictly regulated by Ferrari so not many of these tabards were issued and of course none were ever intended to be available to Ferrari collectors!

Only 1 tabard available!

Vintage 1970s Avon Ferrari 53 375 Wild Country After Shave

Here we have a vintage circa 1974 - 1975 Avon bottle of Wild Country After Shave in the shape of a 1953 Ferrari 375 (America?).

The bottle contains 2 fl. oz. of after shave but I don't if you would like to try it...

The set is unused and it is the actual bottle and box that are depicted in the photos.

The box measures some 13 x 5 x 3.75 cm or some 5.1 x 2 x 1.5 inches with the bottle measuring some 12.5 cm in length (some 5 inches).

The bottle itself is made of a dark amber-colored glass with a plastic closure which forms the tail of the car.

Good condition for its age as visible in the pictures.

A GREAT and unusual Ferrari collectible!

Only 1 available.

Original August 17 1988 Issue of La Gazetta dello Sport on the death of Enzo Ferrari - Vintage Newspaper

Vintage August 17 1988 issue of the Italian newspaper "La Gazetta dello Sport" with on the front page the news of Enzo Ferrari having passed away quietly.

This vintage issue dedicates 9 pages to the life & times of Enzo after he had passed away 3 days earlier.

The headlines read:

A "global" Italian expires.
Ferrari, a silent farewell.

In very good condition for its age and a rare issue!

Apart from the, obvious, Ferrari interest it is also a wonderful time-document as the front page pays attention to the battle between Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis on the (athletic) track and the upcoming soccer match between PSV Eindhoven and AC Milan with such stars as Ronald Koeman and Ruud Gullit (still with dreads at that time!).

Only 1 available.

1992 Ferrari 456GT Carpet Sample Set

Ferrari factory original circa 1992 Ferrari Carpet Sample Set.

Ferrari have always supplied their Sales / Showroom personnel with material to make the choice of car specification easy for any prospective owner.

These items are probably the most seen and most used of their “tools-of-trade”, but not ones that are readily available to the Ferrari enthusiast.

This item is the Ferrari Carpet Brochure (or Swatch) of sample pieces that a Salesman would have used to specify the carpet trim on a new Ferrari 456 GT.

The samples all measure 25cm x 17cm (or 10 x 6.5 inches), bound in matching leather, and are held together by the old method of “screw and stud”, previously used on parts manuals.

All of the pieces (6 in total) are in very good condition and are listed on a front sheet as:

  • Biondo 85
  • Grigio Fumo 86
  • Otranto 87
  • Verde Foresta 88
  • Terracotta 89
  • Nero 90

In good, hardly used, condition.

Vintage 1954 GOLD medal awarded to Mike Hawthorn for the 1954 Grand Prix of Syracuse

Vintage 1954 GOLD medal awarded to Mike Hawthorn for the 1954 Grand Prix of Syracuse

1954 Gold Medal, Syracuse Grand Prix, awarded to Mike Hawthorn.

We are pleased to be able to offer for sale this absolutely unique piece of motoring history:

This medal was given to Mike Hawthorn for competing in the 1954 Syracuse Grand Prix.

Mike drove a Ferrari 625 in this Grand Prix which he crashed and he sustained serious burns to his arms and legs in this accident.

This is what Road & Track wrote about the accident in 1954:

"....Marimon in a Maserati drove too close to the right side of the track and sent up a shower of hay. Blinded by the flying chaff, the second place car, a Ferrari with Hawthorn driving, crashed against the safety wall and the car caught fire. Gonzales, about seven feet behind Hawthorn, piled into the Englishman's car, careened and went into the wall. Both cars were destroyed by the flames and Hawthorn was taken to the hospital....".

Shown below is a photo from R&T of the scene of the accident.

This medal went straight from Mike's estate, in 1959, to an important collector in Switzerland from whom we acquired it directly.

A truly unique opportunity to acquire a piece of memorabilia from Hawthorn's personal possession.

Measures approximately 1.25 inches in diameter and is made of 18 carat gold.

Only 1 available.

Ferrari factory original Ferrari 1947 - 1997 Participants Postcard Album.

This is a VERY rare item from the 50 years Ferrari celebrations back in 1997.

As you might know, only invited guests could attend the celebrations, amongst which a round tour along historically important Ferrari landmarks such as the factory, Enzo Ferrari's house, the Fiorano track etc.

Each participant was given one of these albums, empty, and at each of the stops a special postcard could be collected which was supposed to be put in this album.

Understandably, not everybody completed the tour and those who did will of course not easily part with their album but this album is complete with ALL 18 postcards!

The album measures some 9 x 8 inches or 23 x 21 cm.

The set consists of the following documents:

1)

Color: China Red
Upholstery: Blue

F.O.B. Genoa
Including a crate with 4 sprare 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.

2)
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.

It is stamped in red "ORIGINAL".

3)
The third document is the shipping notice from SEFAC to Luigi Chinetti Motors.

It comes on SEFAC letterhead, is dated November 20, 1964 and advises Chinetti that car # 5901 has been shipped from Livorno on the M/N Maria Costa on November 20, 1964 and that it concerns the "Ferrari tipo 250/LM telaio No 5901".

Has handwritten "5901" in black fountain pen ink on it, purple stamp "No 35790", purple "SEFAC S.p.A." stamp and is signed in blue fountain pen ink.

4)

After Walter Young, the car went to Kirk White who sold it to Bill Rearden.

We are entertaining sensible offers on this set that reflect the historical importance of these documents.
