Chassis: 1191 FS
Chassis 1191 FS is probably the second of a total of five FS 372 sports racers built. The car was delivered new to a Swedish privateer, who raced it quite successfully. He finished 2nd at Chimay in 1958 ahead of three Maseratis and later scored a third in class at the Nürburgring. This FS 372 is among six known survivors fitted with the Type 372 engine and one of only two with its original Morelli body.

It eventually ended up in a French collection before it was bought by Sir Stirling Moss in recent years. He had the car completely restored and prepared for racing by Hall & Hall. It is believed to be the only OSCA of its type equipped with the desmodromic engine. Sir Stirling is pictured in action here at the support race for the 2009 24 Hours of Le Mans and during the 2009 Goodwood Revival, where his 80th birthday was celebrated.
