Chassis: 505-381
Chassis 505-381 was the first of three chassis built by Dallara for DeTomaso. Piers Courage used the car in South Africa where he struggled at the back of the pack until a crash ended his race prematurely. At the subsequent Spanish Grand Prix, Courage was a little quicker but he destroyed his car during qualifying. The damaged tub was sent back to DeTomaso where it remained for three decades. It was eventually retrieved by Rick and Rob Hall of the Hall & Hall restoration and preparation company in 2006.

Using spares acquired with the car, chassis 505-381 was gradually restored into a complete car by Hall & Hall. When they started the tyre marks of Courage's crash were still visible on the tub. In 2008 the work was finally completed and Rob Hall 'debuted' the DeTomaso 505 during that year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. A year later chassis 505-381 returned to the Festival of Speed to celebrate 40 years of Frank Williams in Formula 1.
