JC bought this fabulous well documented Boxer from Maranello Sales in 1984. One month after taking delivery John had the car’s sills painted red and before it went back to Maranello, he lent the car to CAR magazine where it was featured as the cover star for the April 1984 edition.
The car has covered under 21,000 miles and always been correctly looked after and therefore is consequently is in superb condition and runs very well indeed.
DEALING IN DREAMS
A fascinating new book by John Collins.
This book is a fascinating insight into the world of dealing in classic collector Ferraris and other exotic cars from John Collins. It tells the inside story about John Collins and Talacrest, from its beginning to present day and is also a wonderful catalogue of the world’s most fabulous cars that Talacrest and John have been involved with.
With approximately 350 pages, the book is prolifically illustrated with stunning archive pictures from Auto Italia and Marcel Massini amongst others and includes many important Ferrari road and racing cars. Many are accompanied with histories, track tests and how the deals were done.
The book has been published to commemorate Talacrest’s 30th Anniversary and documents the start of the business with borrowed capital from mates in the local pub, to the development of an enterprise which became the first Classic Car dealer to win a Queen’s Award for Export.
A must read for all Ferrari enthusiasts! Learn more here!
