Car Profile: Ferrari 246T 0004

Owner: Graham Adelman – Virginia USA

Drivers: Graham Adelman / Rob Hall

This Ferrari was built in 1967 as a type 166 F2 car with a 1600cc V6 engine but was upgraded to 2.4 litre Tasman specification for the use of Chris Amon in the 1968 series.

Amon was runner up in the series to Jim Clark’s Lotus 49 with wins in the NZ GP at Pukekohe and at Levin, and second place finishes at Wigram and In the AGP at Sandown. The Sandown race was notable for a well remembered close battle in which Amon finished only 1/10 sec behind Clark in what was Jim’s last victory.

On its return from the Tasman series the car was converted back to 166 specification and was driven with some success by Tino Brambilla in European and South American F2 events during 1968 and 1969. It is one of only three Tasman Ferraris built and has been owned by various collectors in the USA since the early 1970’s.

Graham Adelman recently acquired one of the original 2.4 litre Tasman V6 engines and the Tasman Revival will see the cars first appearance since its restoration to full Tasman specification by Hall and Hall in the UK.
