Chassis: 3057
Bought by Swiss privateer Benoit Musy, this 300S was finished in red with a white engine cover and nose band. Musy campaigned the car with considerable success, scoring victories all over Europe. In October of 1956 Musy suffered a fatal accident when the steering of his Maserati 200S failed on the high speed Monthléry circuit. In 1958, the Musy family finally sold the 300S and it was subsequently raced in Angola where a Ford V8 eventually replaced the ageing Maserati straight six. It remained in Africa until 1989 when it was discovered by a Norwegian enthusiast. Although the original did survive, it was subsequently restored with a replacement engine. Since the mid 1990s, a succession of owners has raced the car in historic events around the world. Today, chassis 3057 is owned by a German enthusiast, who, along with his brother, has a phenomenal collection of Maseratis.
