Techno Classica Essen

We received some hot photos from last weekend's Techno Classica but a hotter deadline leaves us Guessin' in Essen. We've filled in some of the blanks, but perhaps our readers can do more. We'll have an update with more details in the next VeloceToday.

Type 35 Bugatti and son.


This is not a French special... .


... but a Cisitalia, as seen in this rear view.


Cockpit of the Cisitalia.


What appears to be a Maserati voiturette racer is a Fiat special.


The sign says "Fiat 504SS", or perhaps "509SS"--Fiat did not have a 504 model number. The body design indicateds that the car was probably built prior to WWII, or just after.


The engine is another mystery, it being a side valve four. Fiat built side vavle fours in the 1920s but by the mid thirties, all the Fiat engines feature overhead valves. Any ideas from our readers?

Maserati A6GCS Series I, Maserati's first successful post war sports racer.


The first series Maserati A6GCSs were left hand drive, later ones right hand drive.


OSCA engine with red Webers. Does anyone know if Webers were ever painted? Interesting. Does anyone know the serial number of this engine?


A Stanguellini Formula Junior amidst the items at Tecno Essen.


Another early Maserati, certainly an A6G1500 from 1947-49. Coachbuilder was usually Pininfarina but this could be Farina.


Rear 3/4 view of the A6G1500.


Along search through "La Sport e i suoi" did not help identify this Italian etceterini. We'd bet the nose and headlamps have been modified over the years.


Notice the very neat id labels to the right of the engine on the firewall. Too small to read them though.


A 1970 twin-engined CitroŽn Mehari, based on the Dyane.


A twin- engined 2CV Citroen.


Alfa Monza. Here, the MO 7140 tag is visible. According to Simon Moore in his book "The Legendary 2.3", this is a Scuderia Ferrari car, number SF 28, and registered as MO 7140 on 4 April 1934.


Peugeot 205 with mid-engined Turbo.


Old toys for old boys.


Stanguellini Barchetta, early 1950s.


Nicely done instrument panel of the Stanguellini.
