This car was pre–sold. Many of the cars we sell were purchased to order; meaning that clients asked us to research our database and the market to find them an exceptional vehicle. Some of these “purchased to order” cars are posted as a courtesy to their owners, as a resource to historians and enthusiasts, and as examples of the many quality vehicles we supply to our clients.
We are pleased to offer 1955 Ferrari 857 Monza s/n 0578/0584, with a well documented race history, well documented ownership history, matching engine and chassis numbers and a fresh engine rebuild by the renowned Hall and Hall of England.
