We are pleased to offer 196 S replica s/n 2527, a wallet–friendly, left–hand–drive, alloy–bodied replica based on 1959 Ferrari 196 S s/n 0776. Finished in excellent Fly yellow paint with an unusually nice pleated red full–leather interior and excellent panel fit. Fitted with a full width plexi windscreen and other event–friendly details such as comfortable seats, full racing seat belts and storage room in the cockpit.

The car has had one long–term owner since new in 1994. Between 1994 and 2000 the owner had a 2.4 liter Dino engine built to 2.6 litre specs by Valley Heads, a well known Italian engine specialist. Fitted with Crane cams, high–compression pistons and larger valves. This freshly rebuilt and highly-tuned 4–cam 246 engine is topped off with three velocity–stack–topped Webers putting out a dyno–tested 235 HP with 205 PF torque at 6,000 RPM, with side pipes to provide all the right sounds, and backed by a full syncro five–speed gearbox. All receipts for the work are available.

Four wheel disc brakes slow it down and nicely polished chrome–spoke Borrani wire wheels shod with near new Dunlop vintage racing tires combined with light weight make for a very usable event car. Outfitted with a correct type riveted–alloy fuel tank with lots of usable luggage space behind the fuel tank. Correct period–type dash and gauges. Excellent attention to details from the covered headlights to the hood straps and hold downs, from the side vents and riveted–alloy oil tank to the period–type fuse and relay box. With the original 196 S s/n 0776 valued at well over $5,000,000, this replica is very true to the original concept and fully functional for event or road use. This is a fully–sorted event car, and as always we offer at a price below the cost of construction and well below its fun factor at $179,500.
