TDF - SWB -GTO ...three of the most exciting automobiles ever conceived and built, and now an equally exciting book by the foremost authority on these cars.
The Ferrari 250 GT long wheelbase Tour de France (TDF), the 250 GT short wheelbase (SWB), and the 250 GTO (GTO) were built and raced from 1956 to 1965, and in that time, created a legend for themselves and for Ferrari that is unequalled.
Driven by both professional and amateur "gentlemen" drivers, they amassed an incredible number of victories that surpasses that of any other model or marque. They embodied all those qualities of speed and durability that mark a true competition Gran Turismo berlinetta, and they represented an era of racing, now gone, that was as enjoyable as it was exciting and as full of bon homme as it was of competition.
Theses legendary cars are detailed in this book as follows:
A complete history and technical description including how and why Ferrari built them.
A complete description of the competition history including race by race accounts, finishing order, DNF's, DNS's, drivers, race numbers, and serial numbers; plus, a list od all Scuderia and drivers involved with these cars.
A complete serial number list with date built, body builder, where sold, invoice date, color, body type, registration umber, first owner, and a year by year history.
This book is a truly extraordinary achievement, and contains, in addition to the text, 30 pages of color, over 350 black and white photographs, and several beautiful drawings by Chuck Queener.
