A couple of years ago, I was photographing some classic sports cars that were on a road tour through Utah. I photographed a close-up of a CarrozzTouring badge on a Ferrari but am not sure which model. I have attached two photos. One photo is of a 1959 LWB 250 GT, and two frames later, this image of the badge. I assume it is the same car, but there were a few Ferraris in the mix, so I can't be sure it was that it was that 1959 250 GT. In my research online, I have been unable to determine if Carrozzeria Touring ever did the coachwork on any of the 250 GTs. Can you tell me if this is the case? Do you know if Carrozzeria did build any of these coaches? I don't want to mislabel this image as being a 1959 LWB 250 GT if that is not correct since it will be placed online. I know touring did the coachwork on the Ferrari 166, but there was not one of those on this road tour.

Can you give me any help?

The shape of the trunk recalls me a 212 or a 340. Do you remember their presence at the show?
