INFORMATION REQUEST FERRARI

Het schijnt de enige 340A te zijn met 
de straps op deze manier gemonteerd...

Ferrari 340 America #0120/A  1951




Jack Rutherford met de Ferrari 340 America #0120/A 
tijdens 'Daytona Speed Trial' op Daytona Beach in 1953.




Nogmaals de 340 America #0120/A van Jack Rutherford
 tijdens de 'Daytona Speed Trial' op Daytona Beach in 1954.





Ferrari 340 America #0120/A was delivered new in june 1951 
to Eddie Hall who raced the car at Le Mans 1951. 
Did Not Finish in 14th hour due to dynamo failure. 

In september 1951 Eddie Hall participated in the Dundrod RAC TT
but again a Did Not Finish because of an accident.



The car currently undergoes 
a ground-up restoration.
This 1951 Le Mans start photo shows 340A 
Driver Bill Spear (blue-white # 17).


The Barchetta behind is a 166MM 
 Driver Bouchard (also blue#64).

Conclusion:
There are Color Pictures made at Le Mans 1951.
But this, first 340 A car on photo, isn't THE CAR we know.

The Owner wants to paint the car in the original color but unfortunately
only black and white pictures seem to exist of the car in both events. 
There is doubt between red and medium blue.

SO

Does anyone have color pictures 
that could confirm the correct color ?

PLEASE SEND PICTURES OR WRITE TO:
