Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ferrari 750 M Mercedes Venezuela 1957 #32 Chassis 0562M started life as a works race car and is the machine in which Ascari was unfortunately killed testing at Monza. The car spent a year racing in Europe in the hands of Venezuelan Joao Rezende Dos Santos before he took it home and sold it to another Venezuelan, Jacques Oliver. For the 1957 season the car was rebuilt and fitted with a Mercedes 300SL engine and renamed the ‘Trans-Oliver Special’, the car we see here. Bodily it looks much as it had when built, but there are a few vents cut in and an unusual side exit exhaust which goes through the sill just ahead of the passenger door. The livery of white with a central stripe of yellow, blue and red for the national flag is very neatly applied and overall it is a pretty subject well modelled.
