1955 750 Monza Scaglietti spyder s/n 0538M, one of the 37 3.0 litre Monza’s built, and quite possibly the
most beautiful 4 cylinder open sports racer to ever come out of Ferrari. The voluptuous one-off Scaglietti
coachwork fitted in late 1955 following an incident at the Targa Florio by the race team of Carroll Shelby and
Gino Munaron, with Munaron disappointingly leaving the track after Shelby had them running third. 0538
would come back to the States wearing its stunning new coachwork and be raced with Bob Drake in the seat
at Palm Springs in April of 1957. This the very last race for Scuderia Parravano.
The 375 Plus and 750 Monza are on offer at Stu Carpenter’s Copley Motorcars showroom just outside of
Boston, Massachusetts. Stu will be presenting both on the Monterey Peninsula in late August, commencing
with the Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours On The Avenue, Tuesday August 21 and then by appointment the
remainder of car week.
