This particular vehicle is an exquisite recreation of the original 1959 Ferrari 196S Dino Fantuzzi Spyder #0776. The vehicle\'s history is shrouded with intrigue that can be traced back to the early 90s when it was packaged as part of an asset trade towards a Gulfstream Jet, ultimately ending up in the collection of a NASCAR Racing Team Owner. At the time, the new owner was advised that this vehicle was built by a group of Old Italian Craftsmen, based in Maranello, Italy who went to great lengths to preserve their anonymity due to their close personal ties to Pininfarina, Fantuzzi and of course Ferrari. Others officially credit Vincenzo Marciano as the builder who would produce approximately 12 recreation examples. This particular one being chassis #MVTR009 with Fiat engine #135C-000 0006267. Details about the 1959 Ferrari 196S Dino Fantuzzi Spyder
In 1999, this Dino was discreetly brokered by the Aero Toy Store in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to a very well-known car collector and automotive historian, who bought the Dino as a gift to himself because he had just closed the deal to sell his private company. The Dino remained as the centerpiece of this large private collection until approximately January 2012. Three years later this unique Jaguar was purchased by our experienced team and integrated into our museum collection in July 2015. In addition to other features, this exceptional Ferrari houses a 2.4L 4-cam V6 Fiat Dino engine under the hood, as well as, a triple Weber velocity stack carburetors, and ZF 5-speed fully synchronized transmission with a gated shifter and reverse lockout. The body was expertly crafted in aluminum alloy over a full tube chassis. You cannot deny the placement of every rivet, fit of every panel, and the meticulous attention to details cannot go unnoticed! The shape of the Pininfarina-designed body with Marchal enclosed headlamps, body ducting, marker lights, transparent hood scoop, chrome spoke 15 Borrani wheels, and full-length Plexiglas windscreen, are all remarkably authentic! The interior design is just as genuine to the eye with cross-stitched leather upholstery over aluminum racing seats and cabin surround, along with authentic Ferrari instrumentation with textured panel face, real wood steering wheel, aluminum foot pedals, and an emergency brake handle. Additional features include a Talbot style racing mirror, racing fuel cap, leather hood and deck straps with polished aluminum release tabs, exposed fuse and relay panel on the passenger side dash, and more! Seen here is a 1959 Ferrari 196S Dino Fantuzzi Spyder for sale that continues to show remarkably today with only a slight mellowing to the overall car, giving it a more credible and authentic appearance overall. The engine compartment is very impressive, as is the interior layout. This stunning Ferrari is very exciting to drive, with a robust throttle response, outstanding exhaust note and classic gate shifted 5-speed gearbox! It is a professional opinion that this is a very rare opportunity for any high-level collector due to the fact that only 2 originals were ever produced for the NART Racing Circuit, and only one was said to survive. This car will likely be the closest you will get to own the real thing given its incredibly high build standards and genuine Ferrari driveline! It is street legal and titled in Missouri as a 1959 Ferrari replica. The St, Louis Car Museu
