 Ferrari 158 racing history  
The reason that the wheels on the car are that unusual color is because, in the latter stages of the 1964 season, Enzo Ferrari was embroiled in a battle with the Italian Auromobile Association, and the cars competed as entries from the North American Racing Team, and the cars were painted white with blue stripes, and blue wheels.I know they competed in that color scheme at Watkins Glen and Mexico City. I am not sure if they used those colors at any other events.
 Fantastic car in a superb museum  
I am lucky enough to live about an hour from the museum where this gem is housed. John Surtees was an incredible racer, winning titles in MotoGP and Formula 1. Barber Motorsports park and the museum overlooking the chicane and back straight is a fitting facility to house this championship-winning machine.

Mr. Barber has put together the largest collection of motorcycles in the world in one of the most impressive buildings I've ever seen. Not to mention, he has one of the largest collection of Lotus F1 cars in the world, including ones raced by Jim Clark and Mika Hakkinen. If you're ever in Birmingham, AL, I highly suggest paying a visit to the complex. It's truly a sight to behold. And if you go on a race day, they have the basement open to visitors where he has the truly rare F1 and Indy cars on display.
