1/3 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB trellis and engine
This was hand built in Italy back in 2006 by Terzo & Stefano Dalia. Only 50 were made and this is the very first one, prototype 00/50.
The model features a highly detailed engine with operating crankshaft with connecting rods and pistons that move in proper firing order and are visible by removal of the valve covers. Note the exquisite detailing of the Weber carburetors, generator, and even the oil filter. The engine is connected to the transmission with an operable shift lever plus a highly intricate drive-shaft and rear axle. This has been fitted with a trellis framework body which allows viewing of the mechanics of this car. As well, the hood of the trellis is removable to access the engine. This is all mounted on a replica of an original tubular chassis fitted with legs for display.
The model has been built from steel, aluminum and rubber. It is huge, measuring 54” long, 22” wide, and 16” tall. The trellis alone weighs about 17 lbs and with the engine and transmission it’s about 36 lbs.
It is in excellent condition with very minor abrasions to some parts of the chassis and display legs. You can display this on a large table or hang it on a wall, horizontally or vertically, for the ultimate display piece! This originally sold for US$32 500 + shipping from Italy, when it was available…
