1955 OSCA MT4 1500 Morelli Spider Jack & Kingsley Croul, Corona del Mar, California
Most of the OSCA bodies built prior to 1955 were constructed by the factory because there were few coachbuilders located near to its premises in Bologna. After Carrozzeria Morelli, based a few kilometres away in Ferrara, rebodied an OSCA MT4 in 1953, the Maserati brothers signed a contract for more OSCA bodies, and soon OSCA bodies made up 90 percent of Morelli’s business. Of all the 78 MT4 chassis built, Morelli was responsible for around 25 of them. This MT4 1500 (chassis 1168) has a rare streamlined Morelli body built for American racer Paul Pappalardo. Later owners included Richard Gent, James K. Wolosoft, Eric Bauer, and Joel Finn. Its current owner bought the car in 1995 and showed it at Pebble Beach in 1996. It has recently been restored for its return visit.
