Don't know, but I want it.

(All looks very light weight, I'd guess something 1.5l or smaller.)

Am away from my notes and pictures, but if my memory is correct, Hawthorne came 3rd in in the 1956 Argentine GP while driving a Maserati 250F.

Wasn't Hawthorn's car the one now in the Southward Museum in New Zealand?  The Bira/Owen car that had disk brakes.

This looked awfully familiar to me as I'm nearly finished a 250F as my current scratch-build model.    Believe me, I've studied this suspension for a long time.   What threw me here was the disk brake!!   Had to check my Haynes manual for the 250F (yes, there is one!) and it says 2 British privately owned cars mounted disks.   These were the Owen Organization and Moss's 55 car.   The change to disks also required the use of Dunlop steel wheels instead of Borrani wires.

Anyway, good pic!

This very suspension has been the BANE of my modeling so far, together with the 250F's very body ^^;

I'll post some pics later, stay tuned :)
