Introduced almost simultaneously with the 212, the 195 did not see a great deal of competition use as the 212's larger displacement offered a slight advantage. Nonetheless, any Ferrari was suitable for racing and several 195s did very well in international competition.
Racing victories aside, the real purpose of the 195 Inter was to provide a suitable mount for the exquisite artistry of Ghia, Vignale, Touring and others. Its longer wheelbase and increased power output made it ideally suited to the task.
Ghia built 10 bodies on Ferrari's 195 Inter chassis.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
