Chassis: 6107
Acquired new by Steve Earle of Monterey Historics fame, chassis 6107 was originally used on the roads of Southern California. After taking delivery in November of 1964, he accrued about 3,000 miles before offering it for $14,750 in 1967. It was briefly owned by Chris Cord before it was acquired by Ecuadorian privateer racers Guilliermo Ortega and Fausto Merello. Joined for the occasion by John Gunn, Ortega and Merello entered the car in the 1968 24 Hours of Daytona. Despite being four years old, it finished eighth overall and first in class. It was subsequently raced at Sebring and again at Daytona but forced to retire with technical problems.

Merello brought the car with him to Ecuador and Ortega's share was acquired by Pascal Michelet, who later also bought Merello out. Michelet and Merello raced the car in local events and even entered it for Le Mans in 1974 but they never showed up. In 1975, chassis 6107 was sold to Robs Lamplough and the following year fellow Englishman Stephen Pilkington bought the car. He had it sympathetically restored by Bob Houghton but it did not race again. Since 1983, it has been part of a prominent Japanese Collection. In November of 2013, this beautifully preserved 250 LM crossed the block at RM Auctions' prestigious Art of the Automobile sale, where it sold for a startling $14.3 million.
