What do you if you just happen to be sitting on a huge pile of cash that you don’t know what to do with? You could donate it to the Chuknum blog ;] or you could get a classic that will live on as one of the greatest vehicles ever made. Your choice.

This gorgeous 1955 Ferrari 750 Monza Spyder is a symbol of all that was right in the 50s a time when people took pride in their work and worked by hand instead of relying on machines to dish out the products by the second. Which is the reason only 35 of these were ever built.

The car is up for auction by RM Auctions.

The car even had a movie career! It had a Starring role in “On the Beach”, featuring Gregory Peck and Ava Gardner. It was also driven on screen by Fred Astaire.
