Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Osca Special Palazzi Calabria 1955 #26 We were struggling rather with this unique OSCA, as Faenza describes it as an OSCA A6 GCS. The style of the body is similar to Maseratiís sports car, perhaps thatís where the name came from. Adding to our initial confusion the car is in what appears to be American colours but that ultimately helped our research. A period article showing the car before its racing career started says it was built on a Colombo chassis, with OSCA 1100cc engine and a body by Palazzi of Milan. The car was built for Texan Bo Crim to race in Europe, hence the colours. We donít have any race photos for the event stated, but the basic shape of the model looks close to that original image and the decals are all neatly placed over a smooth white paint finish. Thereís a decent amount of cockpit detail and the side exhaust is tucked neatly behind a fine heat-shield.
