 Other Early 4.9  
I got to drive one of the 4.9 Ferarris when I was a teenager. It was owned and raced by Jim Hall of Houston (not of Midland). Supposedly one of several purpose built for the "Mexican" road race which was cancelled. Jim asked me to put it up on the trailer. "Who me?" I had just got my drivers liscence. I was so surprised that I forgot to give it the throttle as I let out the clutch. No need. That thing was absolutely smooth. No trouble getting it up on the trailer either which can be tricky with race cars. As I remember it was left hand drive. I remember there was a huge transformer like thing on the dashboard passenger side. Winscreen went all the way across. I also remember that it would sit in the pit for hours with the engine idling in the July heat.

Jim was clocked at 183 mph. My family has film of it being raced at Galveston where it is coming onto the straigtway with all the big iron closely behind until about 150MPH. At that point it goes into 5th and leaves everyone far behind. I would really like to know where it is today.
 Nice classic  
Although a beautiful car for its era, I think many Ferraris are very over-rated as far as styling goes. Still, even an ugly Ferrari is always a FERRARI. If you have a ton of $$$ and you are into old sports cars, why not get an ultimate classic like this! Me on the other hand?, I'd get a 1967 or 1969 Corvette with a 427 big block.
