HISTORY (ORIGINAL VEHICLE)
Chassis 3729GT was delivered in 1962 to the great British racing team owner John Coombs and driven by the most prominent drivers in the 1962 and 1963 seasons, including Roy Salvadori, Graham Hill, Mike
Parkes, Mike McDowell, Mike Salmon, Jack Sears, and Richie Ginther. Coombs also campaigned this right-hand-drive 250 GTO at world-renowned circuits, such as Brands Hatch, Goodwood, Silverstone, Mallory Park, Snetterton, and so on. Then it
was briefly raced by the new owner Viscount Portman before it was retired from contemporary racing. Among the subsequent owners was its original driver Jack Sears, who held onto chassis 3729 from 1970 till selling it to the current American
owner. The accolades garnered on chassis 3729GT include multiple second OA standings as well as first- and second-place class wins. M-251 was none other than chassis 3729GT as it was raced by Graham Hill to a 2nd OA and 2nd GT Class finish at Goodwood with start number #10 on August 18, 1962.
