    I've managed to identify the exact car in that photograph as chassis #50-17. It actually went up for auction two months ago, but failed to sell.



    As for Oscar Koveleski, the driver (and owner) of the car, he had a mail order slot- and model car business, which he used to fund his racing career. He seems like a colorful character.


    "I don't think anyone can sit down and design a legend. Ask Shelby. The first Cobra was a s***box. Ask Ferrari. I had a '56 . It was a s***box until my lifetime mechanic and friend Jack Deren (who recently restored most of BMW's GTP Racing cars) put a Chevy engine, gearbox, rear end in it. Then we won a pile of races with it. Even beating NART Factory Team Ferrari's and private Cobras. There were rumors the Ferrari fans wanted to buy it from me to retire it but I sold it to Andy Warhol for $3600. Its back in Italy now, fully restored to original and worth about $7,000,000."

    Source.
    The car he's talking about is a Ferrari 857 Sport. Chassis #588M. Carroll Shelby used to drive it for the Ferrari factory team before Koveleski bought it. Koveleski sold it to Andy Warhol who painted it yellow and wanted to use it in a movie, but the movie never materialized. The car was allegedly driven around on the streets of New York by Warhol's agent after that. It was restored back to its original specifications in 2011 and sold for $6,270,000 at Pebble Beach in 2012. It's the last of just four 857s ever built.





    Today, Oscar teaches kids ages 2-8 how to race. http://www.kidracers.com




    I literally just found out about all of this because I fell in love with that butt...
