This 1954 model was bought by Southern Californian construction magnate Anthony Parravano. To this day, the engine, gearbox and steering box show the same numbers as the ones figuring in the original data sheets of the car. The car has seen quite a bit of racing action and a few buffs, naturally, but every time that happened, the owner has made a money-no-object restoration job to retain its originality.
As a prime statement of its perfect working order and spectacular visual originality, 0362AM has won the best of show award at the 2013 Carmel Concours on the Avenue. Regrettably, Mecum Auctions hasn't provided an estimate of the 375 MM Spider about to go on the block in a month or so, but a similar vehicle adorned with pontoon front fenders has changed hands at auction last year for $9 million.
