One day Ferrari enthusiast Peter Giacobbi got a tip from his son in law that there was a huge warehouse in Colico di Piano near Como, Italy, that was full of car parts.
When Peter followed the lead up he found the body for today’s featured car in the rafters. Peter shipped the body to Orange County California where he enlisted Dan McLeod of Anaheim to help him build a replica of his favourite car the 1959 Ferrari Testa Rossa.
Since finishing his Testa Rossa Peter has shown it at numerous Concours events where it’s unfinished patina has been well received by the public.
My thanks to Geoffrey Horton for sharing today’s photographs taken at last month’s Desert Classic, Concours d’Elegance.
