Currently I'm looking for a picture of a Ferrari at a specific race.

I must admit, it's very rare bird, this one: Ferrari 375, entered as #41, in the Buenos Aires 1000 km race, 29 January 1956, driven by Brazilians Celso Lara Barberis & Godofredo Vianna Filho. They qualified 12th, but retired with engine problems after 41 laps. (This information according to Janos Wimpfen's book.)

It is thought that this car was Chico Landi's single-seater 375F1 converted to a central seat sports car. A picture showing it at the 1956 Argentine 1000 km race would be nice, other pictures of the car after its conversion and re-conversion to a single seat Brazilian Mecanica Nacional are also very welcome!

Many thanks in advance! (I'm very well aware, it's not the first time this car is discussed at TNF!)
