1959scudetto Posted November 28, 2021 Share Posted November 28, 2021 Burago made the models for the "Le Grandi Ferrari" series - among them a 1961 SWB, painted dark mtallic blue, mislabelled as a 1959. For a short time they had it also in their normal range - in red. It was turned into 2845 GT, the 3rd place car in the 1961 Tour de France d'Automobile, driven by Maurice Trintignant - a logical choice: right color and driven with its bumpers front and rear : it looked very toylike, so I replaced the clumsy windshield wipers, spraypainted the chrome wheels and fuel filler cap silver and applied decals from Patto's Place and my spares (partially reworked). The interior was cpmpletely repainted. This car was the only one sporting 2 ventilation flaps in the front fenders, in front of the doors. I tried to rescribe these and marked them with a black pen.
