    Wouldn't it be better to use the already existing A6 GCS thread?

    Also, why not broaden this thread to all A6s?

    Maserati A6GCS/53

    RM Auction
    Monterey 16 - 17 August 2013

    170 hp, 1,985 cc inline six-cylinder engine with three Weber dual-choke carburetors, four-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension with upper and lower wishbones, coil springs, and Houdaille shocks, rear suspension with rigid axle, semi-elliptic springs, and Houdaille shocks, and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 90.9 in.

    • Continuous ownership history, documented by John de Boer
    • Includes FIA and FIVA certification
    • One of the most beautiful sports racing Maseratis
    • Period-correct engine fitted; additional spare engine included
    • Eligible for every leading international event



    By the early 1950s, business was improving for Maserati with the introduction of exciting and successful new cars for both road and track. Their new post-war models, which featured the A6 1,500-cubic centimeter six-cylinder and the A6G two-liter six-cylinder engines designed by Alberto Massimino, produced sprightly performance, but more power would be necessary to win races.

    Enter the A6GCS, which evolved into the A6GCS/53. This new car used an updated version of the Maserati two-liter, which was developed by Gioacchino Colombo and inspired by a Formula Two design used in the A6GCM. The new engine featured a cast aluminum block fitted with cast-iron cylinder liners for new aluminum pistons and twin overhead camshafts with dual-plug ignition. This short-stroke architecture with seven main bearings by Vandervell, which is supported by a nitrided crankshaft, produced a prodigious 170 horsepower in the catalogued “Mille Miglia” tune.

    Maserati A6 1500

    The A6 1500 grand tourer was Maserati's first production road car. Development was started in 1941 by the Maserati brothers, but it was halted as priority shifted to wartime production, and was completed after the war. The first chassis, bodied by Pininfarina, debuted at the Geneva Salon International de l'Auto in March 1947. This first prototype was a two-door, two-seat, three window berlinetta with triple square portholes on its fully integrated front wings, a tapered cabin and futuristic hidden headlamps. The car was put into low volume production, and most received Pininfarina coachwork. For production Pininfarina toned down the prototype's design, switching to conventional headlamps; soon after a second side window was added. Later cars received a different 2+2 fastback body style. A Pininfarina Convertibile was shown at the 1948 Salone dell'automobile di Torino, and two were made; one car was also given a distinctive coupι Panoramica body by Zagato in 1949, featuring an extended greenhouse. Sixty-one A6 1500s were built between 1947 and 1950, when it began to be gradually replaced by the A6G 2000.

    The A6 1500 was powered by a 1,488.24 cc (90.8 cu in) inline six (bore 66 mm, stroke 72.5 mm), with a single overhead camshaft and a single Weber carburettor, producing 65 hp (48 kW; 65 bhp); starting from 1949 some cars were fitted with triple carburettors.[2] Top speed varied from 146 to 154 km/h (91 to 96 mph). The chassis was built out of tubular and sheet steel sections. Suspension was by double wishbones at the front and solid axle at the rear, with Houdaille hydraulic dampers and coil springs on all four corners.

    I find it hard to believe that it would have left the factory this pristine.
