above, a 1955 Ferrari 857 Sport Scaglietti Spider 0588 M.
Ferrari built just four 857 Sports models, and 0588 M was the last example created.
After a brief period with the Ferrari works team, the car returned to Ferrari and Scaglietti, where it received its spider coach work on and distinctively finished with a rear upright fin, similar to that of a D-type Jaguar.
In 1956, John Edgar purchased the “new” Ferrari to add to his stable. In its first US competition outing in 1956, Jack McAfee wielded the 857S to a second place at Palm Springs. Soon thereafter, McAfee drove 0588 M, finishing third at Pebble Beach.
All this racing wore out the Ferrari mechanicals, and mechanic Jack Deren put a Chevy engine, gearbox, rear end in it. Then Oscar Kovaleski won races with it. Even beating NART Factory Team Ferrari's and private Cobras.
These initial successes kicked off a long list of significant wins for the car but by 1966, this Ferrari ended up bought Andy Warhol, for $3600, who painted the car yellow with the intention of creating a parody of the movie The Yellow Rolls-Royce,
Funny how Andy Warhol shows up here in the auto enthusiast world, isn't it!
