1972 Ferrari 312PB

We don’t feature many race cars here on CICFS, but this Ferrari 312PB is interesting in that it is not an original, but a tribute car built by one of the mechanics to serve on the NART racing team. The 312PB competed in the Group 6 Prototype Sports Car class in 1971 and Group 5 Sports Car class in 1972 and 1973. The 312PB was very successful in competition and won the World Sportscar Constructors’ Championship in 1972. Powering the car was a 3.0 liter flat 12 cylinder engine with four valves per cylinder. This car is for sale in Ohio and wears the name of famed racing driver Brian Redmond.

1972 Ferrari 312PB

Built 20 Years Ago by one of the original NART mechanics John Hajduk. Very correct copy. Built with Formula 1 Spec 312 Engine and Transmission. All correct Ferrari Uprights, Wheels, Gauges, etc. Every rivet and weld is correct. Car has just enough of the proper patina to pass the acid test at any Ferrari event. Own the only one on the planet for a tenth of the cost. Ready to vintage race or enjoy at any Ferrari event. Has to bee seen to appreciate. Interesting trades considered.

This very car was offered at auction in Amelia Island back in 2004 and sold for $1.6 million. Almost a decade on and one economic crisis later, the car is being offered for under $800,000. For the well-heeled this may seem a bargain and would make for a fantastic piece at vintage racing events around the globe.
