Rare Ferrari pays visit to New Hope Auto show

Posted

The 2022 edition of The New Hope Automobile Show is celebrating the 75th anniversary of Ferrari.

This celebration includes a stunning and rare Ferrari 365 P2/3 Spyder (SN 0832) on display both days of the show, Saturday, Aug. 13 and Sunday, Aug. 14. The vintage Ferrari race car is one of only five Ferrari 365 P2/3 Spyder models ever created, with only four remaining.

This vehicle was a competitor in the legendary 24 Hours of LeMans (made famous in the film “Ford vs. Ferrari”) in 1965 and 1966 and has raced around the world.

It was involved in a crash at the 1966 Nassau Trophy races at the Bahamas Speed Week and nearly destroyed.

Down but not out, in the 1990s a local collector had the vehicle rebuilt to its current glory by members of the same group that built the original.

This car does not make many public appearances. This is a rare opportunity to get close to a powerful and rare legacy Ferrari race car.

This Ferrari is among the many unique and rare vehicles that will be on display during the two days of The New Hope Automobile Show, taking place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days, on the grounds of New Hope-Solebury High School.

Tickets may be purchased at the gate: $10.00 general admission; Active Duty Military personnel and their dependents attend for free (must show ID). Children age 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. On-site parking is $5.

The New Hope Automobile Show is presented by New Hope Helping. One of the oldest and most celebrated auto shows in the country, The New Hope Automobile Show features many of the finest antique and classic automobiles and motorcycles from across the eastern United States. The event has been staged in historic New Hope since 1957.

Established in 1949, the mission of New Hope Helping has grown from raising funds to support the needs of the New Hope-Solebury School District to fundraising efforts to support the community at large via auto show related events, cultural events, sports, and music.

New Hope Helping has been responsible for providing the New Hope-Solebury High School with a new gymnasium, 17-acre recreation field, Community Center, and track, as well as annual scholarships to New Hope-Solebury High School seniors.

Additional donations are provided to regional nonprofits, many of whom provide volunteers to help with The New Hope Automobile Show, which is New Hope Helping’s largest fundraising event.
