Here’s a photo from Turku harbor taken in 1957. A couple of Sisu trucks are ready to head towards Helsinki so that their cargo can participate in Eläintarhan ajot. The cargo? Just three Ferrari 750 Monzas and a 500 TR.
The 500 TR (the rearmost car in the trailer) has interesting history. Its bodywork was almost completely destroyed in a crash while practicing for 1958 Eläintarhan ajot and the car was essentially rebodied by Autokoriteollisuus OY in just 6 days in order to take part in the race. As such it’s probably the only Ferrari with Finnish made body.
