Gorgeous 1955 Maserati 300S Up For Auction
This 1955 Maserati 300S is a breathtakingly beautiful automobile that has been listed for auction recently at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, which will be taking place in July. One of its previous possessors was the well-known American automotive enthusiast named Briggs Swift Cunningham.
The car itself has seen plenty of other owners throughout its existence such as Joe Giubardo (from 1956 to 1964), Bill Spear, Joel Eric Finn as well as Dr. Thomas Bscher who owned it for 20 years. Its next proprietor was an unnamed vendor that was very interested in keeping the vehicle completely functional and fit, and therefore invested vast sums of money in order to achieve this goal.
The car flaunts the chassis no. 3053, and it was described by Sir Stirling Moss (World Champion driver) as “…one of my favorite front-engined sports Maseratis – one of the easiest, nicest, best-balanced sports-racing cars ever made…“.
This Maserati competed in the American leg of the FIA Sports Car World Championship and in the 1955 Sebring 12-hour race, occupying third place in both events. A gorgeous masterpiece that has remained in perfect condition despite its age, this 1955 Maserati 300S is surely worth millions.
