Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Faenza's ability to find obscure versions of classic Ferraris and Maseratis always sets us something of a challenge and with the first one we found several incomplete race results for events at Eagle Mountain in 1958 with famous names driving Maseratis. In the February 'frostbite' races, Jim Hall drove one and he subsequently sold it to Alan Connell who campaigned it for the rest of the season and it is in late season form that we see it here, resplendent in Connell's customary black with red nose. At Montgomery in 1959 the car had been repainted in a pale silver blue, though it was still in Connell's hands and he won his class. The 1961 Green Valley car is the same chassis again and is back in black, though this time with longitudinal stripes and no head fairing. We've not pinned down a driver or result for this, though it may well still have been Connell as we know he was campaigning several different cars in 1961 including a Birdcage and a Cooper. Fascinating models and very different.
