Chassis: 0408MD
Completed in March of 1954, this was one of the first 500 Mondials built. It was sold to Swedish privateer racer Valdemar Stener, who campaigned it in Scandinavia for the better part of two seasons. In 1955, he set a new Swedish speed record for cars with an engine between 1,500 and 2,000cc. In 1956, it was sold on to a fellow Swede, who promptly used it to win an ice race. Among the subsequent owners was another Swede, Lars Edin, who had the car fitted with a fibreglass body in the style of the Scaglietti Spyders, which was built by Ockelbo. In this guise, it continued to be raced until the end of the decade.

Following a succession of Swedish owners, it was eventually sold to an American residing in Germany in 1973. By the 1980s, it was in Italian ownership and following a brief spell in Belgium, it was acquired by Carlo Tonelli in 1989. He commissioned Bachelli & Villa to build a new, aluminium body that followed the lines of the Pinin Farina Spyder originally fitted. In 1997, it was acquired by noted American Bruce McCaw. He retained chassis 0408MD, when it was sold on to a fellow American enthusiast, who has since raced it extensively in historic events on the West Coast.
