The 625/250 TRC Is The Winningest Ferrari Ever

Would you care to guess what the most winning Ferrari chassis in history is? It's not an ex-Formula One car and it isn't an Indy racer. It is, most likely, chassis number #0672, this 625/250 TRC. After a few races, Mr. John von Neumann ordered the first 250TR engine (#0750TR) and had Mr. Richie Ginther shoehorn the big V-12 into the diminutive TRC and created a legend.

Driving This Ferrari GTO Is a Certain Kind of Ecstasy
Using hyperbole to describe the 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO is unnecessary. The car speaks for itself. It is one of the last (of thirty-six) Ferrari GTOs ever built. This particular one, chassis #5571, was the first of the Series II bodies. It is equipped with a 3.0L V-12 producing about 300 horsepower and it completed multiple endurance races, winning its class in the 1964 Daytona Continental 2000km, Sebring 12 hour, and Nassau TT.
Chevelle Siblings Bring High-Desert Satisfaction
As a youngster pumping high-octane gasoline for local muscle car owners in Southern California’s San Gabriel Valley during the 1960s, Mark Lundquist could only dream of owning a 1965 Chevrolet Malibu Super Sport (SS). As if to make up for lost time, however, Mark now has four Chevy SS cars (as well as a beastly “standard” 1968 Camaro) of varying vintages parked in a Joshua Tree, California, garage that inspires envy in every guest who drops in. And yes, this collection includes a ’65 Malibu SS.

Every feature on this website is an equal in ART to the Automobile featured….beautiful in terms of the visual execution of it, the craftsmanship of the vehicle selected and the joy of owners who speak of their affection.

Petrolicious is one of the best sites setting itself apart; first by word and image …and then confirming it often with the word “caretaker”; which is what it is all about…..

Beautifully and professionally done…thanks

Tremendous video!

One of the most beautiful sounding engines I’ve ever heard.
And yes, also one of the most beautiful Ferrari’s ever made as well.
Just loved listening him rowing through the gears.
This truly is a special car with it’s history.
Awesome video (once again) Petrolicious.

Epic, this is by far one of the best videos you’ve ever produced, the picture and the sound were overwhelming. The sound of the Ferrari V12 going through the gears brought tears, Thanks for Bruce Meyer sharing this joy.

Bruce is certainly right about this car checking every box there is; the breath-taking body lines, the immense sounds from the V12, and all that motorsport history behind it. I had some nice ear-buds jammed in (as I always do with Petrolicious videos), and maaaan did that piece of fine machinery give me goosebumps. I have to say, the sequence of dawn/dusk shots starting at 2:58 were simply brilliant! This feature has got to be one of my favorites from you guys. Cheers!

Excellent as always. It may sound crazy, but the well placed Mobil Pegasus logo always looks good on cars and bikes from this period. You guys may be tired of this, but where was this filmed? My guess is Hwy 33 N of Ojai.

Gorgeous video as always. The other 625TRC chassis 680 also featured a (non period fitted) 250 V12 when it was sold by RM a couple of years ago. as the sale included its original 4 cylinder engine it might be back in its original configuration now?

In my earlier comment I mentioned seeing Bruce on the freeway in LA. Here is a photo of him doing just that. Driving on the Freeway in LA. I did not take this photo and do not know who it was that took it. But a friend of mine emailed it to me and I had in on my computer.

You guys nailed the sound, once again, thanks for doing it up right where it counts.

I must admit I am absolutely loving the focus on engine noise in the last few videos. It’s definitely one of my favourite things about cars in general, and classics in particular.

This car sounds like what a orgasm feels like. I hate to be so blunt about it but i had the speakers way up on this computer to listen to that beast. This car won at all most all of the big name tracks back in that day that is no easy task. Add to the fact that 5 years later its still winning! I think the Ferrari 250 GTO might have a challenger for best Ferrari but i guess it takes a Ferrari to beat one haha:D

Another fantastic production. Fantastic guy, fantastic car, fantastic sound and let’s not forget, fantastic filming. The Ferrari V12’s of old have a certain effect on me. I can’t seem to hear one without getting goose bumps and chills.

Wow. What a fantastic film/car/owner/story; I do not know where to stop. Can this be made into a film, similar to Urban Outlaw as there is so much to the story of the owner and the car that four mins is way too short?
BTW the piece is missing a title when played (not that this changed my enjoyment).

We had a wrong version of film embedded before. It’s been corrected now. Thanks for pointing it out.

Bruce is a driver and has an amazing car collection, but more importantly is just a really good guy. He heads the Checkered Flag 200 support group for LA’s Petersen Museum which is a great organization with a lot of terrific events.

If ever there was a car guy Bruce Myer is a car guy. I have seen him drive this very car on the freeways of Los Angeles to car events. Thanks for sharing it here. This is Driving Tastefully at it’s fullest!
