From the internets:
“My elderly co-worker Serio is an ex-Ferrari mechanic who wrenched for the team back in the 60’s and 70’s. He will ask me to pull up a chair and tell random stories out about when he was growing up, working on Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, Alfa’s, ect. He comes in today with some old pictures of himself with the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO #3987 he worked on back in the late 60’s.
“This particular chassis is the one that Roger Penske won the 12 Hours of Sebring with in back in 1963 (in GT), was later driven by Alain de Cadenet and is now owned by Ralph Lauren.
“In the photo, Serio is in the red check shirt and the guy in the white shirt with the pipe is Dr. Baumgardner, the car’s owner at that time. Note that the car had the orange lights on the roof that were needed to run at Le Mans.”
