M2-01 1951 Ferrari 212 Export Touring Barchetta

In the 1950s, the 2.5-liter V12-engined Ferrari 212 Barchetta with coachwork by Touring of Milan became the race car of choice for events such as the Tour de France, the Mille Miglia and the Carrera Panamericana. For more serious drivers, the 212 Export models were built for racing in the GT and sports classes. The 212 Export featured a larger fuel tank and triple Weber 32 DCF carburetors from the Ferrari 340 America. Chassis 0136E's first owner, Bobby Baird, entered this car in the Tourist Trophy race at Dundrod in Northern Ireland, where it finished sixth overall and First in Class. Moving to South America, it was entered in the 1,000-km Buenos Aires race in 1956 before returning to the United Kingdom in the 1970s. Its current owner acquired this 212 Export in 1999. Owned in 2013 by Jack & Kingsley Croul, Corona Del Mar, California
