Ferrari 156 Sharknose Bambino Treadle Car

A total restoration of a 1/4 size 1960-61 Morellet Guerineau treadle car representing the Formula 1 winning Ferrari 156 Sharknose. All steel. Original body plus my fabrication and painting skills to create an amazing likeness of the famous and beloved Sharknose. It is flawless and perfect.
It sits on a mock roadway representing the parabolical curve at Monza on Sept 10, 1961 when Number 4 (Wolfgang Von Trips) crashed. (VonTrips and 13 onlookers were killed by the crash) . The base is lighted from underneath and glows on the inside of the car. The back fence depicts photographs of other items of interest.
This is the Only One In The World, and is a treasure to behold. (My wife makes me add that it comes with a custom pair of yellow flannel, piped in red , "pajamas" with seperate wheel covers and tailpipe covers that I "allowed" her to make for it because I love to make her feel included in my passion!)

Dimensions: Roughly 4-4-1/2 feet long. Sitting on base, about 40" tall.
