THE DENNIS A. LEVETT BEST OF SHOW AWARD
For the entry that is the unanimous choice of the Chief Class Judges (selected from the First in Class winners)
1956 FERRARI 250 GT
Robert Lee Sparks, Nevada
“Robert Lee purchased this unique 250 GT Boano Convertible – chassis #0461GT – off the Ferrari stand at the 1956 New York Auto Show and has owned it ever since...Reportedly Enzo Ferrari sent word that Mr. Lee should not be charged more than $9,500, well below its cost. All Boano 250 GT Ferraris were built on the 2,600 mm LWB (Long WheelBase) chassis and were fitted with a 3-leter V12 producing about 220 horsepower. The 250 series lasted successfully from 1953 to 1964 to be taken over by the 275 and then 330.”
