Frank Crane in Ferrari TRI/61 #0794

Frank Crane drove the car to an 11th overall finish at the 1964 Laguna Seca USRRC race against modern mid-engined competition.  Bill Sherwood took over driving duties for the rest of the 1964 season and registered a string of 2nd place finishes in Northern California events behind Bart Martin's Cooper-Chevy, who ran up a string of 1sts.

This beautiful streamlined Ferrari Testa Rossa #0794 was an ex-factory racer.  In 1961 Phil Hill & Olivier Gendebein won LeMans in the car.  Ricardo Rodriguez drove it at the 1961 "L.A. Times Grand Prix" at Riverside for Luigi Chinetti's North American Racing Team (N.A.R.T.).  He failed to qualify due to mechanical problems.  Dick Hahn bought the car for Stan Burnett to drive in 1963.  Bev Spencer bought it next for his drivers Frank Crane and Bill Sherwood.
