1952 Ferrari that raced at Le Mans and once traded hands for $200 is up for sale

Auction house Mecum has a rare Ferrari listed for sale. While this isn’t out of the ordinary, the car which is worth millions traded hands as recently as 1990 for just $200.

The car is a 1952 Ferrari 340 America, of which just 24 were built. This one bears chassis number 0202A and sports a body by Italian coachbuilder Vignale. It also raced at the 1952 24 Hours of Le Mans, finishing fifth overall thanks to the efforts of Andre Simon and Lucien Vincent.

After it was done racing, the car made its way to the United States via importer Luigi Chinetti. It eventually ended up with an owner in Texas who, around the late 1950s, replaced its original 4.1-liter V-12 with a Chevrolet V-8.
