Midland Airpark, October 11, 1959: Shreveport VW dealer Harry Washburn in his second appearance with the Chevy-engined Ferrari Monza, chassis 0502. He finished 5th [Prelim] and 6th overall in the Feature.
Chassis 0502 was the only Monza that came without a headrest. Washburn bought the car in August 1959 from Jim Hall of Dallas. Its history under Hall, and before that, Big Jim Hall of Houston, where the Chevy unit was installed by Dale Burt, seems to be unknown by most Ferrari chassis number websites, which claim Jack Bates as the previous owner. Bates owned chassis 0522, though.
