Originally supplied to Mr. Giorgio Mara in Busto Arsizio Varese, Italy in 1963, it was used as a regular road car for the ensuing 20 years before being prepared for racing by Cupellini Corrado, a well respected Italian specialist for racing, sale and acquisition of historic Ferraris. It was campaigned all through the 1980's in European championships including stints at Montlery, Nurburgring, Brands Hatch, Monza, Spa and in Italy, Monza, Varano and Imola. Complete with as FIA and CSAI (Automobile Club D'Italia) passports; it then competed in 1988 in the Coppa D'Italia winning first place in one of the road stages against some formidable opposition. In 1990, it did the Carrera Pan Americana for Scuderia del Portello and was then sold to its current owner in 2001. It then underwent a series of development and improvement works in order to prepare it for modern historic competition. This included a complete overhaul with particular attention paid to front and rear suspension, steering and engine. The engine itself underwent a cylinder head overhaul with valves seats re-cut and re-ground. New racing valves and springs, high lift camshafts and chains and the Weber carbs stripped and overhauled.

A new cage has also been fitted with 4 point harnesses along with fire extinguishers and a competition fuel cell. An aluminium light-weight removable hard top, aluminium doors as well as a full flow 4-branch exhaust manifold and system , bearings, discs, callipers and much more have also formed part of the overhaul producing an extremely pretty but more importantly, an extremely competent racing car. The money has been spent; it just requires someone to sign her up for next year's series of Top Hat racing or indeed any one of a number of historic competitions this car is eligible for.
