Case History

Case History is a compilation of the information that I have gathered over the years in the form of chassis number logbooks, engine logbooks, and race logs of cars and constructors that have raced in Grand Prix, Formula 1 or other various open-wheeled formulae over the years. In addition, there are notes and information on drivers and teams as well. Without the wonderful work done by people such as Denis Jenkinson, Doug Nye, Alan Henry, Chris Nixon, Paul and Betty Sheldon, Duncan Rabaglianti, Bernard Cahier, Pete Lyons, Henry N. Manney III, and many, many others, something like this would be impossible. This is a work that may never be truly finished. It will simply be in a rest phase from time to time before embarking on another bout of activity of updating material.

References for much of this information are found at the end of this little effort. Any errors are solely mine. I hope you find this useful.

Chassis Logbook – Maserati 250F

This logbook will cover the 250F series chassis numbers in races run under the GP/F1 formula. With a few deviations for the tracking the numbers. This is generally accurate, but since all the factory machines and many of the customer cars were prepared in the same place, it gets ugly fast and early on. The works was not above “borrowing” a customer car, doctoring the paperwork -– to say nothing of the chassis number plate! – and using it if necessary, with the customer not often being notified of such uses of his machine. It is doubtful that we will have be 100% sure, but then again, the factory rarely worried about that aspect of the business.

Interim Cars. The ‘interim cars’ were a result of Maserati trying to balance its works efforts with its customer programs. As with most things with Maserati, it makes what should be easy into a challenge instead. As the 1954 season approached, the works team, Officine Alfieri Maserati was laboring to produce enough cars for its factory effort, much less for its customers. To provide the needed cars to its customers, its was decided to use chassis from its 1953 cars, the A6GCM, stuffed with the new engine, the 250F, to provide a stopgap until the customer’s pukka 250F was ready. Of course, it never turned out this easy.

The cars retained the virtually all of the components of the A6GCM: tubular frame chassis; independent front suspension was using wishbones and coil springs; rigid rear axle using quarter-elliptic springs; the transmission was via an open propeller shaft to a four-speed gearbox. Only the bodywork was changed in any significant manner. However, the cars were simply overpowered and overwhelmed – the roadholding and reliability suffered in these cars. They were included in the original batch of chassis number allocations and it has been a nightmare ever since!

For an in depth look at the Maserati 250F series, there is an article on 8W concerning the history of the cars, chassis by chassis:

Vanwall
Acton, West London

V.A. Vandervell

1949 -- Thinwall Special No. 1 / Ferrari 125 GPC, 1.5 litre supercharged V-12 engine in a short wheelbase chassis with swing axle rear suspension. It was returned to Ferrari (after being examined by BRM). No chassis number so far.

1950 -- Thinwall Special No. 2 / Ferrari 125 with a 1.5 litre supercharged, twin-plug V-12 in a long wheelbase chassis with swing axle rear suspension. Chassis number 125-C-02. It was returned to Ferrari to be rebuilt as the Thinwall Special No. 3.

1951 -- Thinwall Special No. 3 / Ferrari 375 with 4.5 litre normally aspired single-plug V-12 using a long wheelbase chassis with de Dion rear axle. Used the same chassis as Thinwall Special No. 2, 125-C-02. This car was retained by the team and broken up in 1952.

1952 -- Thinwall Special No. 4 / Ferrari 375 with 4.5 litre normally aspirated, twin-plug engine and de Dion rear axle using "Indianapolis" long wheelbase chassis. Chassis: 010-375. This car was retained by the team.

1954 -- Vanwall Special / Cooper-built chassis (Type 30) with Vandervell engine developed with Norton (upper) and Rolls-Royce (lower). The engine was developed in 2.0, 2.3 and 2.5 litre versions. After being crashed at Barcelona in 1954, it was not rebuilt.

1955 -- Vanwall / The team built four chassis to its own design. Chassis numbers were:
VW1
VW2
VW3
VW4
All were broken up at the end of the season and used as the basis for the 1956 cars.

1956 -- Vanwall / The team built four cars using the chassis as re-designed by Colin Chapman and the bodywork designed by Mike Costin. The cars had transverse leaf spring rear suspension. The cars were retained for 1957. Chassis numbers were:
VW1/56
VW2/56 -- won the International Trophy at Silverstone
VW3/56
VW4/56

1957 -- Vanwall / A total of 10 chassis planned. but no more than four fully assembled at any one time. The cars now had coil spring rear suspension. The first four chassis were those retained from 1956 with the remainder being built-up during the season. The chassis numbers were:
VW1
VW2 -- never completed
VW3
VW4 -- won the British GP at Aintree
VW5 -- won the Pescara GP and Italian GP
VW6 -- the Streamliner, converted to normal bodywork
VW7
VW8 -- Lightweight chassis
VW9 -- Lightweight chassis, not assembled during the season
VW10

1958 -- Vanwall / The 1957 cars were retained with detail modifications to the suspension and bodywork. The chassis numbers:
VW1 -- not assembled, used for spares
VW2 -- not assembled, used for spares
VW3 -- not assembled, used for spares
VW4 -- won the German GP, destroyed at Casablanca
VW5 -- won Belgian GP, Italian GP & Moroccan GP
VW6
VW7
VW8 -- not assembled, used for spares
VW9
VW10 -- won Dutch GP & Portugese GP

1959 -- Vanwall / Three chassis were retained, the rest broken up. Chassis retained:
VW5 -- rebuilt with smaller, modified bodywork and lighter components. Later fitted with an experimental rear suspension developed by Colotti, but never raced in this configuration.
VW9 -- retained as a show car by Vandervell Products
VW10 -- retained for testing purposes, but rebuilt in 1960 in 1958 form for "demonstrations."

1960 -- Vanwall / In additon to the chassis retained for show (VW9) and demonstration (VW10) purposes only two chassis used in 1960.
VW11 -- a new chassis built from VW5 components with "low-line" bodywork. Used Colotti transmision and suspension. Driven by Tony Brooks at Reims, then dismanted and retained by the team.
VWL12 -- used for testing; actually Lotus 18 chassis 901 mounted with a Vanwall engine. Sold by the team as a rolling chassis.

1961 -- Vanwall / A rear-engine chassis was built for the Inter-Continental Formula series using a 2.6 litre Vanwall engine. Engines V4, V6 and V9 converted to rear-engined specification. Driven by John Surtees in its only race at Silverstone.
VW14 -- later rebuilt into a Mk.2 vesrion, but never raced in that form.
Note: There were only nine Vanwall engines used by the team, V1 through V9, the latter not being used during competition in a front-engined car.

Notes on the Streamliner, Chassis VW6

The Streamliner was developed for the Reims Grand Prix which was held on 14 July 1957. It followed the GP d'ACF which was held a week earlier at Rouen. On page 97 of the Vanwall book is a picture of the Streamliner.

There was a big gap in the racing schedule in 1957 between the GP at Monaco on 19 May and the GP d'ACF on 7 July. The Vandervell team found itself itself with a driver problem during this interval. Tony Brooks suffered injuries when his Aston Martin crashed at Le Mans and was out of action for several weeks. Then Stirling Moss managed to damage his sinuses while on vacation in the south of France when he inhaled too much saltwater while water-skiing. Stuart Lewis-Evans and Roy Salvadori were pressed into service as drivers.

The Reims GP was one of the "big money" races for back in those dais. Both the starting and prize monies were extremely "generous" and Vandervell wanted to do well. Hence the Streamliner. It was laid out to cover a new chassis, VW6. The body design was supervised by Mike Costin and the work done by Abbey Panels of Coventry. The team mechanic who supervised this work was Cyril Atkins.
The Streamliner was flown out to France the Tuesday after Rouen. The Rouen cars, VW 1 and VW4, were loaded on the plane at Calais and returned to Southend. The Streamliner proceeded to Reim where VW7 and VW8 were already waiting.

Stuart Lewis-Evans was the first to try VW6 in practice and found it badly overgeared. This was worked on overnight and the next day both drivers tried VW6, but the lack of experience by both drivers with cars at speed on the Reims circuit -- or in Vanwalls at any speed for that matter -- meant that both were never comfortable with it. They then concentrated on the "regular" cars for the race. Sadly, the Streamliner was returned to its transporter and not raced that weekend.
However, VW6 did reappear that season, albeit with the Streamliner panels being removed and replaced with normal bodywork.

The racing record for chassis VW6:
8 September 1957/ GP Italy - Monza; engine no. V6; #22, Tony Brooks, 8th place and fastest lap.
19 July 1958/ British GP - Silverstone; engine no. V1; #9, Stuart Lewis-Evans, 4th place.
24 August 1958/ GP Portugal - Oporto; engine no. V2; #6, Stuart Lewis-Evans, 3rd place.
7 September 1958/ GP Italy - Monza; engine no. V4; #30, Stuart Lewis-Evans, retired on lap 31.

For a fleeting few days-- almost literally hours, in fact -- in July 1957 there actually were FIVE Vanwalls in full kit. Here's how it happened:

As noted, the team had only one week between the GP d'ACF at Rouen and the Reims race. Since it would have been quite out of the question to bring the transporter back to Acton, unload the Rouen cars (VW1 and VW4), load up the Reims cars (VW6, VW7, VW8), and return to the Continent, it was decided to send out both transporters to France.

One transporter was sent to Rouen with VW1 and VW4. The other to Reims with VW7 and VW8. After Rouen, on that Tuesday as a matter of fact, VW6 was flown to Calais. It was off-loaded and VW1 and VW4 loaded on the aircraft and returned to Southend. On Wednesday, these were back at the race shop in Acton undergoing the usual post-race disassembly.

Meanwhile, the transporter with VW7 and VW8 was in Reims where it was joined by the transporter carrying VW6 from Calais.

So, from roughly Monday through Wednesday of that week there were five fully-assembled Vanwalls lurking about. Scanning the rest of the 1957 season and the 1958 season, I haven't found a similar situation where there were more than four fully-assembled Vanwalls. I am certain that at some point during the 1958 season there might have been a fifth chassis missing only an engine but otherwise ready for use.
