Chassis: 1037GT
The 19th of 36 single-louvre Tour de France Ferraris built, this example was sold new to Venezuela-based Spanish racer Julio Pola. Delivered through local Ferrari distributor Carlos Kauffmann, it was finished in a distinct white livery. Pola debuted 1037GT in the late 1958 Grand Prix of Venezuela, where he finished second to works Ferrari driver Jean Behra. He would race the car with considerable success through to the summer of 1959, when it was sold on to José Miguel Galia. He continued to race the car and after its retirement from contemporary motorsport, it remained in Venezuela. In 1987, it was retrieved from the South American country by specialist Michael Sheehan. By that time, it had been painted silver and converted to open headlights.

The next owner was Australian Ferrari collector John Maher, who acquired the Tour de France in 1989 and had it completely restored by a New Zeeland-based company. While it was re-converted to its original headlight configuration, it was painted red. A white stripe was later added as a reference to its original colour. Maher sold the car to Europe, where it was briefly raced and after passing through several more hands, it joined the collection of John Siroonian in 2002. He showed the car at several events during the early 2000s. Sadly, Siroonian passed away in 2008 but his family would cherish the 250 GT Tour de France for another decade. They finally decided to part with 1037GT and consigned it to the 2019 Gooding Scottsdale Auctions.
