Cobra Transporter heads to auction


Recommended Posts

For the sake of brevity, we've actually left quite a bit of significant history out of the headline for this story on the 1956 Fiat Series 306/2 Grand Prix transporter that RM Auctions has consigned to its Monterey sale later this month. While Carroll Shelby did indeed use it to ferry around his Cobras 50 years ago, the transporter has over its lifespan done the same duties for the Maserati factory team, Lance Reventlow's Scarabs, Alan Mann's GT40s, and the Lotus factory

There is some question as to whether it was ever a Maserati-commissioned vehicle. The "Transporter Expert" who has written a book about them puts it in a separate-from-Maserati lineage in what he says is his definitive post on the subject.


Probably a simple error on the part of the author of the auction catalog. I hope.
