á Supplied by the factory to Venetian Oscar Papais, Chassis 0787 GT is the 12th of only 18 Series II cars built as a three louver, covered headlight example. Completed in red with matching red interior, Papais quickly got to work with 0787 claiming a first in class at Modena Aeroautodromo, soon progressing onto the tough Mille Miglia Rally with a celebrated fourth overall. 0787 was not to rest on its laurels however, passing through the hands of a wealthy Italian Countess to the Brazilian Carlos Themudo 'Fritz' D'Orey, a young up and coming racing driver who made his Formula One debut shortly thereafter in a Scuderia Centro Sud Maserati 250F. D'Orey added the the distinctive Brazilian livery of yellow and green stripes, racing throughout Italy at events that included the Gran Premio Lotteria di Monza and the Trento-Bondone hillclimb. In the late 1960's 0787 crossed the Atlantic from Italy to California, being repatriated to Europe a decade later where it was campaigned extensively. It has recently returned to the USA where it has been a regular and often victorious competitor in the Shell Historic Challenge. The Scaglietti bodied Tour de France remains one of the most pretty and, without doubt, one of the most successful of all competition Ferrari's, offering a rare opportunity to acquire such a versatile competition GT car.
