#2031 1951

Quote from: http://www.maserati-alfieri.co.uk/alfieri06v.htm

As owner of the famous Scuderia Centro-Sud racing team and Maserati concessionaire for Rome, Gugliemo 'Mimo' Dei clearly enjoyed a close relationship with the Maserati factory. As a result of this friendship, Dei was able, on occasion, to commission cars for himself based on chassis supplied by Maserati.

Chassis 2031 is unique, being the only car bodied in this style by Vignale. This Turin based company was founded in 1946, with Alfredo Vignale himself initially taking the responsibility for designing the coachwork they produced. As well as undertaking one off commissions, the company produced small production run vehicles and prototypes for larger manufacturers. As a result of the increased workload this entailed, Alfredo was unable to continue in his role as chief stylist, employing in this role the young Giovanni Michelotti.

Michelotti would later find fame for his work with a range of companies, including Triumph, but his reputation was built with his work on Ferraris and this Maserati.

Upon its completion, this car was exhibited on the Maserati stand at the 1951 Salon de l'automobile in Paris, its styling being praised in the influential American magazine 'Road and Track'.

Following the Paris salon, and bearing the Turin Registration number '126793 TO', the car passed into the ownership of Marcel Schwob d'Hericourt of Paris, who entered the car on the 1952 Tour de France co-driven by Albertini. The car was used in other European rally events prior to being subjected to a factory service/overhaul at the Viale Ciro Menotti factory in Modena.

In subsequent years the car made its way to the United States having been purchased by US racer Bob Estes where, over time, the car was developed to keep it competitive.

In early 1972 an enthusiast recognised the car in a Los Angeles parking lot and, realising its importance, bought it despite its unrestored state. The new owner then embarked on a major restoration that took over nine years.

These years of dedicated restoration were rewarded when it won its class in the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'elegance in 1998. The car's then owner believes the biggest compliment was not the win at Pebble Beach but when he was approached by Maserati Engineer Sgr. Alfieri at the Concorso Italiano. When Sgr. Alfieri looked over the car he said; 'It looks exactly as it did when it left the factory for the Paris Auto Show, colour, interior, everything except one detail'. When asked what that detail was he said, 'We never built them this well'.
