(1947) 125 S --- This was the very first car to wear the Ferrari badge. The V12 engine was designed by Gioachino Colombo with contributions from Giuseppe Busso and Luigi Bazzi. Sport and competition versions of the 125 S were built with different bodywork although the chassis and running gear of the cars remained basically identical.
This is a great example of why scheduling a regular coolant flush on your vehicle will save money in the long run and increase the life of your auto. Over time the coolant gets acidic and causes rust. Rust particles then become part of the coolant system and get blasted through the engine wearing down engine parts. On this 2003 Mitsubishi Montero the factory steel freeze plug got rusted through. Replacing it meant pulling the transmission. www.newtireprice.com
