This book illustrates the story of the Research, the Restoration work, and the Results in returning this Ferrari 335 Sport (#0764) to its historic 1959 Daytona SCCA National winning configuration.
This exceptional car was judged Best of the Best for 2019 from an elite group of Best of Show winning restorations.
Originally displayed at the New York International Auto Show in 1959, this specific Ferrari 335 S Spider, powered by the legendary Ferrari V12 engine, was destined to be a showstopper.
The car went on to race at a number of historic tracks in the United States including Watkins Glen, Daytona International Speedway and Virginia International Speedway, where the Ferrari suffered a blown motor in May 1960. Due to prohibitively expensive repair costs, the vehicle was left unclaimed at a New York customs facility.
Fortunately, the Ferrari found a new lease on life when it was purchased from the customs facility in April 1963 for roughly US$1,000.
Between 1963 and 2013, the classic car bounced between owners from multiple countries before finding its current home with Andreas Mohringer of Salzburg, Austria.
Mohringer commissioned a complete restoration by Paul Russell and Company, a renowned specialist in the restoration, preservation and maintenance of fine vintage classics, to bring the car back to its original condition.
