In 1949, it was Chinetti himself who took the first Ferrari victory at the prestigeous 24 Hours of Le Mans in a Ferrari 166M. That same year, he also won the Spa 24 Hours.  It has 2 mounting holes in it, so mount it on any vehicle, or just keep in in your collection, on your desk or in your book shelf as a reminder of a great episode in the Italian and American racing history! The first Ferrari Chinetti ever sold throught his newly established dealership was to no other than Briggs Cunningham! This emblem is a real stunner with its “cavallino rampante” against the yellow back ground.
