There were two things about the car that made me think "Maser"...one was the overall proportions of the car. It seemed a little too small to be an 8C (even though there are 8Cs with similar body work) and, well, yeah, that is definitely a Maserati badge on the grille shell there. You can tell by the proportions and the colors.

I suppose there's a chance that it's a rebodied 1500 Alfa but I imagine if the people at Kruse turn up a record of the car it will point towards the car being 1123 or one of its kin.

Regardless, thanks for posting that photo; great to see a car in that condition.

I don't believe, that this car is an Alfa. 6C 1500, or 1750 are higher, the 8C's have much longer bonnets and Wheelbase. I agree with your thinking of a Maserati 4 Cylinder.

Surely whoever restored or rebodied it had an eye sight issue? ... not close to right. Sort of vaguely similar-ish is all I could give the effort.

Maserati 4CS 1114

The body in the original picture was not the original one fitted by Maserati but an 'updated' one fitted pre 1946. The car in this format competed at Prescott in '46 when owned by Henning. It originally had the only Brianza bodied 4CS and was shown on the 1932 Salone dell'Automobile. It was subsequently restored in the UK back to it's original 'Brianza' body style.

Lots of pictures of how it looks now are available on the web if you search for Brianza 4CS

Lovely.

And yes I can see how some would be upset over such an old body being removed ...

Any takers?

* Other recollections of the weekend remain vivid, though, including the sound of a dozen Duesenbergs parading through downtown Auburn past the old Auburn-Cord factory. Amazingly, I was passed by two of them driving at speed on the Interstate later that evening, in addition to a matched pair of supercharged Cord 812s (a Westchester and a Phaeton). Hard to imagine that happening these days!
Looks French to me a one off Talbot-Lago T150 C??

The older I get.. the faster I was....
