1971 Ferrari 512 M replica built in 1994–95 by John Hajduk for Richard and Benton Bryan. The engine is a Daytona engine fitted with a modern dry sump system and converted to slide–valve fuel injection, built by Bob Wallace and backed by a Hewland gearbox. The Lucas metering unit is fitted to the back of the left cam and the distributor to the right cam bank, like the original 512 S/M engine.


1970s, Herbert Müller (Switzerland) purchased several 512s from GES (Ferrari Gestione Sportivo), Ecurie Francorchamps (J Swaters), Scuderia Filipinetti and Solar Productions (Steve McQueen).

1994, the spares from the Müller race team were sold and shipped to John Hajduk, to be built up for an American collector. Included were two original engines, two original gearboxes, original body shells, noses, tails, uprights and literally a container load of other parts. Because of age, new suspension arms and uprights were built. All tubs and body parts, were re–made.

1992–1995, 512 M s/n 1008 and 1034 built with original 512 S / 512 M engines, gearboxes, new frames, tubs, bodies.

1994–1995, JDR #01 built by John Hajduk. Built to fit a very tall (6′ 2″) and large (250 lbs plus) driver. Extra large drivers seat fitted, center tub rails offset for large seat.

2003, 08 Mar., RM Auctions’ Vintage Motor Cars at Amelia Island:

RM Auctions, Amelia Island, 3/8/2003 . Lot # 100 -- 1971 Ferrari 512M Replica; S/N 512MJDR01; Red, Yellow/Black; Estimate $200,000 - $300,000; 2- condition -- RHD. Elaborate replica based upon a factory spare tub, various spares from 512s and a Daytona V12 with slide throttle injection. Hewland 5-speed transaxle. Completed in 1994 and raced in HSR and SVRA since. Decent appearance and appears to be stoutly constructed and RTR. With real ones almost too valuable to vintage race, a replica like this based upon original Ferrari (and even some 512) parts makes sense if only to gratify paying spectators yearning for the sound of a Ferrari racing V12. Even at RM's low estimate of $200K, this is a cost-effective way to access some rewarding weekends' activities.

2006, August, on consignment with Michael Sheehan’s
