Chassis: 004C
Featured is s/n 004C, the second Spyder Corsa and most likely the fourth Ferrari ever constructed. All eight Spyder Corsas survive to this date, but only 004C and 016I are still equipped with their original bodies. Close inspection of this car's engine reveals stampings dating back to 1946, indicating that the engine started life as the very first batch of 125s. It was extensively raced up until the mid 1950s before it was sold to the current owner's father in 1964. Understanding the importance of this early and highly original Ferrari, the car has been preserved over the last forty years.

This time warp Ferrari is not only carefully preserved, but also frequently shown by its owner. It is pictured above at the 2006 Cavallino Classic. In this fifteenth edition of the annual event it took centre stage amidst Ferrari's latest production models in front of the Breakers Resort. It was also extensively featured that same month in the 150th issue of Cavallino Magazine by researcher and historian David N. Sielestad.
