Chassis: 0696MDTR
Sold new to French privateer Fernand Tavano, this 500 TRC sported the rare combination of French racing blue with a red stripe. Tavano debuted the car at Le Mans but engine problems ended his race early. He subsequently campaigned the car in local events with great success for several more seasons. The Frenchman traded the car in 1960 for a 250 GT SWB and the factory subsequently sold the car to Count Giovanni Volpi, who quickly passed it on the the Scuderia Centro Sud. The Monza based racing team used the 500 TRC for their driving school. The current owner's family acquired the Ferrari in 1968 and have only very rarely shown the car since. Between 2000 and 2007 it was meticulously restored to its original configuration.
