The fact that there are no details of where 813392 went does NOT mean that the chassis was used for a special project. It just means there is a lack of documentation that a fake builder conveniently could take advantage of.There are no details of where 813392 went wich means that the chassis was used for a special project.
This means SOME records exist of the car, just not sales records. It also means the car in its current form is not original.Luigi Fusi, the Alfa Romeo historian who had known and worked with Enzo Ferrari since 1921, sent the owner over one hundred drawings appertaining to the car, including many drawings of the original style bodywork which had been fitted to the car.
Hmmm. I wonder what the evidence is that this has been done "professionally" or why having this this done prefessionally would be important.The chassis has been professionally shortened to 104 inches.
Makes no sense at all. The original Bimotores - arguably the first Ferraris, as being the first cars to wear the Ferrari badge on the cowl - raced with a Dubonnet front axle, like the late 1935 Tipo Bs. Only when one Bimotore was sold to Dobson was that car retrofitted with the the standard, Porsche-scheme IFS, the one fitted to 6C2300B, Tipo C, 8C2900. Of course the "original Bimotore" could not have had that suspension, since it was developed for the Tipo C during the 1935-36 winter. That's documented. So the Ferrari pointer intended here is complete nonsense.The front suspension is identical to that of the Alfa Romeo Bi-Motore which was also built up in the Scuderia Ferrari workshop in Modena.
Laughable: Enzo Ferrari certainly didn't leave Alfa Romeo in 1938!!! From January 1st, 1938, instead, he was appointed head of Alfa Corse, the new racing department created to replace the Scuderia Ferrari, bought out by Alfa in 1937. So, from Jan. 1938 Ferrari was indeed on Alfa Romeo's payroll (while he was not before that), and he left in October 1939, when any racing activity was suspended due to the war outbreak.All the evidences show that, this is a "Special" made up by Enzo Ferrari, just after he left Alfa Romeo in 1938
Seeing the car doesn't mean anything. No one doubts the car is a 6c2300 chassis with modified rear suspension and an 8c2300 motor, enlarged to 2600. What is needed is actual documentation that the car is connected to Ferrari and put together from these parts pre-war. All that exists is stories and speculation, and no proof.Did somebody here see the actual car, or it s just internet opinions ?
I agree. The contradictions in the link in post #2 speak volumes. Attempts to link this car to Ferrari are very far fetched.Seeing the car doesn't mean anything.

So, I guess this answers many questions about if and when and by whom the car has been modified.Some time during the nineteen-sixties a 6C 2300 chasis, in fairly parlous condition, but fitted with an 8C 2300 supercharged engine, was imported into the U.K., having originated from North Africa, where it had been used for racing. Eventually it came into the hands of Myrray Rayney, a brilliant Australian engineer, living in Surrey. He rebuilt and modified the car considerably in the 'seventies, fitting his own coil spring rear suspension, and handsome bodywork reminiscent of that fitted to 8C 2900 Mille Miglia cars. He also built a sister car, fitted with a 6C 2300 engine, but unique in that it has twin blowers, like a Type B Monoposto. This car in particular is likely to puzzle any Alfa Romeo enthusiast examining it who does not know Murray Rayney! Both cars have been successful in hill climbs and driving tests driven by Murray and his daughter, Joy, who has made a habit of braking ladies' hill climb records outright driving a modern racing car designed and built by Murray called the Murrain.
