Chassis: 0858
The second of three 330 P4s built ahead of the 1967 season, this Berlinetta bodied example was raced by the works team four times. It finished second overall at Monza and Le Mans, where it also won its class in the hands of Mike Parkes and Ludovico Scarfiotti. Following its Le Mans outing, it was fitted with Barchetta type bodywork ahead of the BOAC 1000 km race at Brands Hatch. Later in 1967, it was modified to 350 Can-Am specifications with a larger engine and cut-down bodywork. In this guise, it was raced for three seasons in the United States, Australia and Africa with considerable success. It was retired from racing at the end of 1969.

In 1971, chassis 0858 was acquired by American collector Walter Medlin. He had the car restored to its late 1967 Can-Am specification during the 1990s. In the following years, it was only rarely seen with an appearance at the 1994 Monterey Historic Races as a rare exception. From the 1990s, the car was quietly offered for sale and also subject of several disputes between Medlin and the IRS, who seized the rare Ferrari at least once. In May of 2009, it was consigned to RM Auctions' Maranello sale but bidding stopped short of the reserve.

Following the unsuccessful sale, it has been restored by David Piper to its 330 P4 Barchetta configuration for dealer Talacrest. Since then, it has been revised again by the current owner to its Le Mans configuration, using several original panels. The engine has not been downsized, so it is still to full 350 Can-Am specification.
