1954 Carrera Panamericana

Ferrari 340/375 MM Vignale spyder

Received this picture @15 years ago that I doubt was ever published. A color photograph by an American enthusiast who went down to Mexico to watch the 1954 Carrera Panamericana event. It was the only picture he took of the 340/375MM (chassis 0286AM) Ferrari of Phil Hill / Ritchie Ginther. There are only a handful of color pictures from the event that year. Color negative film wasn’t cheap nor the cost to develop it. I’m amazed the negative lasted so many decades.

note: I was involved with the restoration of this racecar 25 yrs ago. Strange that even today I still get e-mail from people finding information about it and forwarding my way.
