Chassis: 0628
Serial number 0628 was the sixth and final Tipo 520 chassis built. It was originally fitted with the 860 Monza four-cylinder engine and used by the Works team throughout 1956. The best result that year was a second in the Mille Miglia behind the victorious 290 MM and a third in the Targa Florio. For 1957 a Tipo 130 V12 engine was fitted, transforming the car into a 290 MM. After two more Works outings it was sold to Jan de Vroom in New York. The was subsequently damaged in an accident and rebuilt by the factory with a pontoon-fender nose similar to the latest 250 TRs. In this guise Stirling Moss drove 0628 to two wins at Nassau.

After its retirement the well raced 290 MM remained in the United States and was eventually acquired by Luigi Chinetti. He held on the car for nearly three decades before selling the car to Jon Shirley. He had Butch Dennison and Pete Lovely restore the car to its early 1957 configuration in which it had raced at Buenos Aires and Sebring. After the restoration, it was shown at all the major American shows and awarded numerous awards, including the much coveted Best in Class at Pebble Beach. In 2006 it was offered as a private treaty by Gooding and eventually found a new home in 2007. It has since been demonstrated at the 2011 Goodwood Revival during a Juan Manuel Fangio tribute.
