Completed early in 1955, this 750 Monza was delivered in time to Texas based entrant Allen Guiberson for the Sebring 12 Hours. The manufacturer of drilling and refinery equipment fielded the car, painted white with a distinct blue triangle stripe, for Carroll Shelby and Phil Hill. The two Americans were initially the winners but a protest was lodged by the Jaguar team. Upon close inspection of the lap charts, the D-Type of Phil Walters and Mike Hawthorn was found to have indeed crossed the line 25.4 seconds ahead of the 750 Monza, which did win the Index of Performance. There were no such issues for Hill at the subsequent Pebble Beach road races where he won the Del Monte Cup. Later that year, Hill also finished second at Palm Springs.

Guiberson then sold the car to fellow Texans and brothers Dick and Jim Hall. They fielded the car for Carroll Shelby at Pebble Beach, where it won the race outright once more. Shelby won again at Dodge City and Eagle Mountain before it was raced by Jim Hall for the first time. He debuted the car at Fort Summer, New Mexico where he scored a hardfought victory against SCCA National Champion Ernie McAfee in a Porsche 550. The car did incur some damage and was returned to Maranello for repairs and to be fitted with a full width windscreen to comply with the latest regulations. At this time, it was also re-painted red. Hall then also acquired his brother Dick's half of the car and continued to race it in minor events into the 1958 season.

After its final contemporary outing, the 750 Monza was carefully stored as Hall focused on commissioning and racing the first of his Chaparral sports racers. The car remained in storage for four decades before Hall decided to have it restored to its original configuration and colour scheme. The work was entrusted to one of his former Chaparral mechanics, Troy Rogers. Carefully preserving all the original components during the restoration, Rogers only had to replace the bell-housing and the starter. Since 1997, the car was shown at select events and exercised from time to time at Hall's private race track to ensure it remained in full running order. Hall, only the car's second owner, has now decided to consign the highly successful Monza to the RM Sotheby's Monterey Sale.
