HISTORY (ORIGINAL VEHICLE)
Sold new to David Piper, a racing driver of Great Britain, in 1963, this right-hand-drive 250 GTO was finished in the bright BP racing green. Piper raced the car with considerable success in many locations, including Mallory Park, Silverstone, Brands Hatch, Daytona, and Monza, etc. Over the winter of 1963/64, he had chassis 4491 modified with a cut-down windscreen and a re-profiled roof. The car changed hands several times subsequently until 1981, when its current Italian owner had it restored to its original configuration, removing Piper’s modifications. The vehicle presented by CMC was raced in Silverstone on July 20th, 1963, finishing 2nd OA and 2nd in GT Class. Further achievements include 4th OA in Monza and 1st OA in Kyalami, to name just a few.
