1950s Ferrari Wreck

Post by Jesper Hvid » 7 months ago

Click to enlarge. Note that the steering wheel is to the right. There is a hint of a car number at bottom left, and perhaps also on the piece of bodywork to the right, and I think this is probably a race car. Sportscar.

At first I thought it was Farina's wreck in the 1954 Mille Miglia, but I've checked now, and it ain't. Compare:

It's not de Portago's or Ernie McAfee's wreck, either. I've checked that, because there were pics from those accidents for sale at Ladenburg at the same time, also.

Very little to go by, I realize, but it may turn out to be significant, hence added.

This is a question rather than a suggestion, or a positive ID, but could it be Ford Robinson's fatal CP wreck? See: viewtopic.php?f=75&t=1070

There's some similarity, damage wise. SOME.

EDIT: The Rubbish Bin is removed and all posts are merged back into this main section. There was no point in it anymore as all we have left is "rubbish" that we can't identify.
Racing is living and everything that happens in between is just waiting.

No, it ain't that, but it rules out a candidate. I have a feeling that the wreck is fatal. Will dig deeper.
