This Ferrari LWB Berlinetta Tour de France, #0665, is truly unique among the five Zagato bodied Ferrari 250GTs. It is the only one of the five with both covered headlight and the signature double-bubble roof. More importantly, #0665 had by far the most successful racing career of the Zagato bodied Ferraris. First owner and Privateer Camillo Luglio piloted #0665 to the Italian GT Championship for the 1957 season. Moreover, in the 24th and final running of the Mille Miglia in 1957, Luglio finished 6th overall, 2nd in his class and first among non-factory drivers.

This is one of 19 Zagato bodied cars on the two liter Maserati Chassis. This is an early car and was the second built, although several cars like this participated in the Mille Miglia in period , this car did not. In 2012, the car went back to Italy and ran the retrospective Mille Miglia and finished the run with no problems.
These lightweight bodied cars were built for amateur racers and were very competitive in their day.
Considered the most beautiful formal town car of the period, this outstanding one-off creation was penned by Christian Bohman and Maurice Schwartz and is the most powerful town car ever built. Commissioned by Mars Candy Company heiress Ethel Mars, SJ533 is one of just 36 factory supercharged Duisenberg’s and one of the few to retian its original coachwork, drivetrain and chassis. It has a 320 bph, 420 cubic inch four valves per cylinder twin overhead camshaft in-line eight cylinder engine with a Schwitzer Cummins centrifugal supercharger, three speed transmission and a 153.5 inch wheelbase. It was featured in the November 16th, 1936 issue of Time magazine over the caption “The costliest car in the United States is the Duesenberg, a Cord product”. Expensive it was, with Ethel Mars having paid more than $20,000 for the car.
This car was originally sold to Count Castelbarco with Zagato Styled fenders and bodywork to make it a sports car eligible for the 1993 Mille Miglia. It finished 2nd to Nuvolari’s Spider Bodied Monza where Franco Cortese drove most of the race. It was raced frequently in 1933 and 1934 without fenders and crashed mildly in the 1933 Monza race after which it was sold and continued to compete in 1934. It competed in the 1938 Le Mans after which it raced in English Club events. The car came to America in the 1950’s and is still entirely original except for recent front fenders restored by Christopher Leydon Restorations.
This car started life as a type 35 Bugatti GP car. O.A. Phillips raced it in this form until he acquired the currently installed Miller V8 engine. The engine came from a Miller 4-wheel drive car that raced in Germany and blew up, throwing bits into the stands where Adolph Hitler was watching. Hitler was missed by inches. O.A. Phillips then swapped this Miller engine in and raced at Indianapolis in 1941 and 1946.
