61 - Auto-Becker, Duesseldorf, D
The car had 2 different "schede commerciali" or commercial files. The dealer was Auto-Becker in Duesseldorf. The name of the first client is unknown, but it looks like he was living in Italy. The 2nd "commercial file" (july 1961) is due to the fact that the car was foreseen to be shown at 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show, and then delivered to the customer.
61/sep/21-oct/01 - displayed at IAA Frankfurt show
There was a white Ferrari Spyder displayed in 1961 at the IAA in Frankfurt and it looked like it had covered headlights
The A and the B technical checks (tagliandi) have been made by Ferrari in the factory. The C inspection and check has been performed by Malagò (today SAMOCAR, Ferrari dealer in Rome). This makes suppose the car running in Italy, rather than in the States, at least in the first year.
