Friday's Ferrari

Another look at a Ferrari that I've featured a couple of times previously, this time pictured at Silverstone in July 1997 at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting.
It's Dudley Mason-Styrron's Ferrari 166 MM Touring Barchetta, driven in the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge race by Sally Mason-Styrron. The programme of the event shows it as a 1954 car, but it's shown in's history of the car, serial number 0040M, as having been built in 1950. It does say, however, that it was 'brought up to 195 specification and then 212 by factory', so it's possible that one of these modifications may have caused it to be redesignated as a 1954 car.
