All were originally delivered with a 1985cc aluminum block overhead twin cam twin plug engine producing approximately 170 horsepower. This one was sold new to Ducati Motors USA in 1953 an is believed to have been driven by Fangio for Pompeo at Thompson in December of 1953, as automotto.org reported. This chassis was raced at Sebring in 1954 but did not finish.
After it has been restored twice and reunited with its original Maserati A6GCS engine number 2067, the car passed through Fantasy Junction en route to the current owner who bought this example in 2006.
During the 2009 season Fantasy Junction had the opportunity to exercise the car in the prestigious Shell Historic Ferrari Challenge winning at Infinion Raceway. Most recently the car enjoyed a strong showing at the Monterey Historic Automobile Races at Laguna Seca where it qualified on the front row and finish second.
The interior is finished in flat silver paint and the engine number is stamped on a pad forward of the bell housing and includes Maserati insignias.
According to Fantasy Junction, the car is “detailed for show and operates as if it just left the factory. The car sits on painted Borrani wire wheels with nearly new tires. The Plexiglas windscreen is unmarked. The cross-drilled trunk door and hood latches are all intact and beautifully restored as are each of the Maserati emblems.”
