Monterey's famed car week is just a couple months away and as we get closer to Pebble, auction houses are starting to preview the rare gems that will soon be finding new homes across the globe. One of the most exciting cars to hit the auction block is this 1955 Ferrari 750 Monza Spider by Scaglietti, which is one of the most important cars in Ferrari racing history.

Not only did it win its fair share of competitions, it was piloted by three of the biggest names in racing of the era: Jim Hall, Phil Hill, and of course, Caroll Shelby. The car has been in Jim Hall's ownership for 60 years and remained in storage for 40 years before a thorough restoration in the mid '90s. The car will go on sale at RM Sotheby's Pebble Auction, which takes place on August 19-20 in Monterey, California.
