1964 Ferrari 250 GTO
This is the 1964 GTO of Phil Hill and Pedro Rodriguez that won the 2000km of Daytona. In the following endurance race in Sebring 12 hour, the same car finished first in class, (seventh overall), and later on won its class in the three races of the Nassau TT at Hill’s hands. It is one of the last (of thirty-six) Ferrari GTOs ever built. This particular one, chassis #5571, was the first of the Series II bodies, where only 3 examples of this version ever made!
It was built by Scaglietti, equipped with a 3.0L, V-12 engine, producing about 300 bhp, and resembled the 250 LM in style athough with substantial engineering differences, but enough with words; let’s hear this ‘prima donna’ revving up through the forest mountains of Oregon by Phill Hill’s son Derec, who has a special attachment to his father’s car.
