The 1958/9 Ferrari 196S looks like a scaled down 250 Testa Rossa, the three rather than six downdraft Webers makes the little brother easy to pick…

2 litre- 1983cc, 77 x 71 mm bore/stroke, DOHC, two-valve 65 degree V6 fed by three 42 DCN Weber carburettors. Two plugs per cylinder, twin magnetos, circa 195bhp @ 7200rpm. Four speed gearbox.

Tubular steel ladder frame chassis, front suspension by upper and lower wishbones with coil spring/shocks and roll bar. Rear has a live axle with coil springs, hydraulic shocks and roll bar, drum brakes all round, worm and sector steering.

Two chassis built- ‘0740’ and ‘0776’.
