Now is your chance to buy a rare piece of Ferrari history.

Sure, it mightn’t actually be a Ferrari, but the truck you’re looking at here, has transported some of the rarest and fastest cars ever produced by the prancing horse.

Meet then, the 1969 Ferrari Formula 1 transporter.

Yes, this old girl has transported motorsport royalty, having acted as Ferrari’s F1 transporter for over a decade after being drafted for use in 1969.

That means it’s transported F1 and sportscars raced by Gilles Villeneuve, Carlos Reutemann, John Surtees, Mario Andretti, Jacky Ickx and even the world championship winning machines of Niki Lauda and Jody Scheckter.

But what about the truck itself?

Well, it was built by Italian truck manufacturer Officine Mecchaniche (OM) and is powered by 8.0-litre, six cylinder diesel.

After its retirement in 1980, it was cared for by a private collector before moving to the Museum of Motorsport Racing in Fuji, Japan, where it’s currently kept.
