Sir Stirling Moss has described the 3-litre, 6-cylinder-engined Maserati 300S as having been: “…one of my favourite front-engined sports Maseratis – one of the easiest, nicest, best-balanced sports-racing cars ever made…”.
This fine example of the coveted model was the third 300S ordered by the great American collector, Briggs Swift Cunningham, for his old friend and team driver Bill Spear. Upon delivery ‘3053’ was co-driven by Bill Spear and Sherwood Johnston in the 1955 Sebring 12-Hours race, the American round of the FIA Sports Car World Championship. They enjoyed a fine debut, finishing third, beaten only by a Phil Hill– driven Ferrari and the winning Mike Hawthorn Jaguar D-Type.More Information: http://artdaily.org/index.asp?int_sec=2&int_new=61430#.UVJuCjdWVT8[/url]
