Saleroom Addendum

The engine block that accompanies this vehicle is stamped 0274 MM and shows internal no. 018. While it is believed that this is the original engine block, as stated in the published catalogue, this fact is not confirmed. The Ferrari build sheet for this vehicle does not record an engine internal number. According to Ferrari historian Marcel Massini, no internal numbers are listed on any of the copies of the 31 250 MM build sheets in his possession.
