Front fenders look a little bit like the Touring Mille Miglia Spiders
Olaf, does Simon Moore mention who the coachbuilder was?
Yes he does! Both 8C2900's I mentioned were built by Touring as Mille Miglia Spiders. Especially #412031 had it's headlights in the front fenders more or less in the same way as the car in the picture shown.
The front fenders also carry some resemblence to the 6C2300B Touring Berlinetta's of the 2nd series that ran in the Mille Miglia of 1937. See the pages 323 and 324 of the Fusi Bible of 1978.
What looks strange to me is, that the front fenders appear not to be connected to each other under the radiator. Is that correct or do I see that wrong?
