The man who would eventually take overall control of Ferrari was initially beguiled by a wonderful barchetta by Touring. It was his first Ferrari.

Ferrari 212/225 Barchetta

Henry Ford II — American industrialist

This is the last Ferrari Barchetta (Italian for “little boat”) ever built and the last non-racing Ferrari bodied by Touring. It was given as a gift by Enzo Ferrari to Henry Ford II and delivered new with the larger 225 engine, left-hand drive, and whitewall tires; features typical of American cars of the day. This Ferrari was one of the European sports cars evaluated by Ford stylists during development of the Thunderbird and it is believed to have inspired a number of 1955 Thunderbird design features, including the egg crate grille and overall proportions. Having traveled less than 13,000 miles since new, it has never been restored and retains its original paint, engine, and upholstery.
