Farina number

Hello John,
you was right, slow finds I ever more numbers. Even the ashtray has Farina number. Is that normal, that the headlights from Marshall is and all lights in the back from Lucas? Do you know, what means this ACI sticker? The car probably still was in the year 1955 in Italy.

Stabilimenti Farina

Every part that was hand-made to fit the car is a candidate for numbering by Stabilimenti Farina, particularly if it was a part that would be removed after fitting so that it could go off for another operation, such as plating or polishing or upholstery or paint. This way, the coachbuilder would be immediately sure of which car the part belonged to when it returned from the finishing procedure.

Headlamps and related parts, if not by Carello or some Italian supplier, were very likely by Marchal. Certainly not Lucas at the time of the car's construction ... unless the customer made a specific request for some reason. Since your car spent a fair bit of time in the UK, it is not difficult to guess as to why Lucas parts might be in the car today?

The ACI sticker does imply that the car was still in Italy as of 1954 and perhaps into 1955.

All good clues and good things to be aware of.

Best of luck.

Metron

My impression is that Metron instruments were generally used in some commercial vehicles. Don't know who used them though. It is possible that they were available in the aftermarket? I've seen many different varieties at various Italian swap meets and have even picked up a couple that looked similar to Jaeger ... like they could be adapted for use if necesary.

Posting #61 and women drivers ???

I've been meaning to ask why these photos are here in this thread? Why do you believe they are women? Some more setup or context is needed to inspire real research. Perhaps a different thread? There is probably a thread running somewhere (although maybe not on the AlfaBB) on this topic already?

The Cisitalia D46 is certainly wearing Swiss colors and has a distinctive modification or two. I'm not sure it is a woman driving despite the apparent pucker in the driving suit over his/her chest. Any more information available?

The Maserati A6GCS is probably Luigi Bellucci, probably on the Targa Florio 1955, probably in chassis 2097. Although Maria Teresa de Filippis was his co-driver, it does not look like she is at the wheel ... and although I haven't checked specifically, it does not look like her similar car, chassis 2084. They finished 9th o/a, some results having Bellucci listed as "E. Berlotti" for some reason. The car following is possibly another A6GCS, albeit rebodied by Scaglietti after an accident. If so, it is probably race #94, perhaps chassis 2049, perhaps with "Mancini" or "Benoit" at the wheel. They did not finish.

It is actually Anna Maria de Filippis with Targa Florio 1955 and in the second picture Swiss Rita Rampinelli. It reserved the fourth seat with Swiss championship 1955 in the category racing car.

Metron, Cisitalia and Maserati

Your Metron gauge is much fancier than most.

Rita Rampinelli? Then the Cisitalia D46 is probably chassis N. 034.

I wonder about the identification of "Anna Maria" on the 1955 Targa Florio. It is definitely "Maria Teresa de Filippis" who was the racer. It does not look like it is her in the car ... but it is hard to tell. She is still active in historic car circles today ... or at least until recently. She has or had a sister named "Anna Maria". She also had three brothers named Giuseppe, Antonio and Paolo. A couple of them were involved in motorsport as well but there is often confusion in print as to who did what, probably based on simple errors of assumption. Antonio appears as the owner of record for a number of interesting cars in historic documents. You can find websites today that state that some of his cars were owned by Maria Teresa. Beware!

I met with Maria Teresa about fifteen years ago and she told me that her first real race was the result of some sort of wager between her brothers, Giuseppe and Antonio, to determine if she could race cars as well as horses. They entered her in a hillclimb without her knowledge. It was June 1948 and she was in a Fiat 500B with race #102 at the first running of the "La Salerno - Cave dei Tirreni" ... She won the Turismo 750 category. She went on to race a great deal in Fiat 1100S, Urania, Giaur, OSCA, Lancia and several different Maserati racing cars. At the end there were some brief appearances in the Porsche-Behra F2 car and a Lotus Formula 1 before she gave up racing in 1959. She tested a Formula Junior once at Vallelunga and, whatever it was, she was not impressed with it. Her words, "faceva schiffo". There is a photo that appeared April 29 1959 in the Daily Express newspaper showing her sitting in a Stanguellini FJ. The caption says "Maserati". I never thought to ask if her sister, Anna Maria, had raced at all. I guess I should go and visit again with a new set of questions?

Here is Maria Teresa in her Urania before the start of the Aosta - Gran San Bernardo 1949. The photo is by Bertazzini and I am lucky to have a small collection of negatives.

Anna Maria Peduzzi sometimes confused with Maria Teresa de Filippis?

It occurs to me that, for those who do not actually follow this stuff closely, then or now, there is and was the chance of confusing "Anna Maria Peduzzi", another well-known lady racing driver who did very well, with Maria Teresa de Filippis.

It must be actually an error of author at that time (Auto year 1955-1956). On a side it writes team Bellucci de Filippis occupied 9.Place.
The heading to the photo: Anna-Maria de Filippis, as courageous Amazone, steers its Maserati 2-Liter in this hard running on the 14. Place
Original : Anna-Maria de Filippis, als mutige Amazone, steuert ihren Maserati 2-Liter in diesem harten Rennen auf den 14. Platz
