Description:

Maranello Concessionaires Ltd order number 242 was completed in March 1966 and invoiced to their then offices in Wellesley road London W4 on the 17th March 1966 for a Celeste Chiaro metallizato 106-A-26 with black VM8500 hide. The car appears to have been trucked to the UK and first registered KGJ 6D on the 25th June 1966 to Maranello Concessionaires Ltd as their demonstrator to be used by the Colonel himself.By October 1966 the car had covered 4,100 miles and was sold to the “first owner” mushroom grower Mr Raymond Thompson of Wittering, West Sussex-less than 10 miles from the famous Goodwood race circuit ,by the Colonel for £4,900!There is some fabulous correspondence between the Colonel and Mr Thompson relating to oil types and servicing.Maranello Concessionaires maintained the car over the next twelve months and now 13,000 miles. Mr R Thompson wrote to the Colonel in October 1967 regretting the need to sell the car due to a lack of time to use and enjoy the car and his wifes deteriorating eyesight meaning she could no longer “cope with it”. The Colonel replied that they would happily take the car back charging 10% “to cover guarantee and expenses”. He also went on to mention that they were moving to their new premises in Egham on the 6th November 1967.Mr Thompson agreed to these terms stating it was the “finest car I have ever owned”. The car was returned to Maranello Concessionaires now in the their new home in Egham from where it was sold by on the 8th February 1968 for £3,750 -returning Mr Thompson £3,250-to Mr David Griffith-Hughes of Surrey,a rubber and plastics engineer. Mr Griffiths-Hughes owned the car certainly for at least the next three years using Maranello to service and maintain the car. Indeed the car appears in an article by written by Ronald “Steady” Barker in the 28th August 1969 edition of Autocar having been fitted with a K300 supercharger requiring the engine to be rebuilt with modified connecting rods etc to alter the compression, new carburettors -SU HD8''s etc. As well as the Autocar article there are numerous photographs of the car “in period”.The car passed in to the ownership of classic car dealer Brian Classic of Cheshire-now with a standard engine-in the 1970''s -who apparently owned it on several occasions. In the late 1970''s -the last occasion he owned it- he decided (probably in an attempt to help sell it!)to convert it into a NART (North American Racing Team) spyder. So with the assistance of two ex Chevron racing team mechanics and a friends original NART spyder he set about removing the roof, a relatively simple operation apparently, strengthening the car, gain pretty straight forward and manufacturing a hood and frame ,impossible without an original to replicate! The original roof and rear screen being stored in his workshop and still with the car today! Numerous photographs plot the conversion.It then passed into the ownership of Ferrari specialist Michael Fisher who repainted the car in his favourite colour of blue scuro, before finding a home with Mr Michael Sugden of London and into the car of Surrey Feral agents, Modena Engineering Ltd where Mike Wheeler of Rardley Motors first saw the car. The engine was rebuilt in 1987 by Modena Engineering''s Jock Bruce, who carried on the maintenance over the next two and half years.The car passed in the hand of Ferrari specialist John Collins of Talacrest who had Terry Hoyle convert the car to a six carburettor set up, before being sold to Mr David Morrison of Surrey on the 5th June 1991. Having entrusted Maranello Concessionaires to fully restore the car (a£25,850 inclusive contract in 1991)over the next two years! David drove the car the upon completion meeting Chinneti jnr ,who having seen and being impressed the car gave David the enamel NART badge affixed to the rear panel today.It was also entered in the nation Ferrari Owners Club finishing with 303 points. The car was registered to the penultimate REGISTERED keeper dealers Gregor Fiskin who recovered the roof and rear window from Brain Classic. The car comes with a comprehensive history of past invoices ,MOT''s and photographs in both colour and black and white as well the Autocar article from August 1969.
