68/may/14 - written off after the TF accident  
David Piper explained
"that a steering arm in 6167 worked its way loose during the May 1968 Targa Florio, causing him to completely lose control. He ended up hitting the cement base of one of the Kilometer markers on the side of the road. The car flipped onto its roof and the chassis + body were completely demolished, and written off."

David Piper says
"a mechanic was told to really tighten up the steering arms due to some issue with them becoming lose on the rough Targa Florio roads. Apparently, the mechanic then proceeded to mistakenly loosen up one (or both) of these steering arms . . ."

Paul Vestey explained
"that this 1968 Targa accident became a big problem for 6167’s upcoming June 1968 Le Mans entry (1968 Le Mans ended up getting moved to September due to French worker strikes and civil unrest)."
 
The problem was 6167 was already entered by Paul Vestey in 1968 Le Mans! So what happened was Paul Vestey had to scramble to quickly locate and acquire a replacement 250 LM. As such, he purchased 6053, removed the 6053 welded tag (bearing 6053’s chassis number stamping) from the rear lateral chassis member, and then installed the engine from 6167 (i.e. the engine for 6167 had already been inspected by the Le Mans organizers and approved/certified - - notice the little twin scrutineer stampings just to the right of the Engine No. stamping, etc.).
 
68 - original engine & gearbox installed in 6053
   
 
   
68 - original chassis remains left at Carrozzeria Sports Car, Modena, I  
69/jun/04 - remains sold to Stefano Sebastiani, Rome, I for 1,0mio Lit.  
92 - new chassis and body were built by Franco Ferrari, painted blue  
00 - Dr. Dieter-Colin Kolles, Ingolstadt, D  
 
Note: Thanks due to the unselfish support of Colin Kolles in April '99 the history of 6167 can be presented as above, would not wonder if he will be the future owner.
