“The engine was dropped into a discarded ’56 chasis. Fantuzzi, coachbuilder for Maserati, beat out a rough body. A hole was cut into the hood for carburetor air intake, and the car was hurried off to the Modena Autodrome for testing. Fangio took it around for several laps. The Old Man just shook his head sadly.”
