This particular example (chassis no. 5845GT) was the fourth built and was raced extensively, including taking first place at the esteemed 1965 Austrian Grand Prix. The dashboard was covered with leather, sliding windows were replaced with wind-up windows, and seat belts and carpets were added. It was later shipped to the US and converted for road use and was at one stage used for regular commutes into New York city.
Fully restored in 2002, it is being auctioned at RM Auctions' ‘Ferrari Leggenda e Passione’ event at Maranello this Sunday along with over 45 other rare Ferraris.
