Posts Tagged ‘Maybach 1’

I love these two drawings of two of the fifties Charlie Dean/Repco Research designed and built Maybachs- 1 and 2 by Brian Caldersmith…

I’ve written about both cars before in two articles, one¬†mainly about¬†Stan Jones who raced both machines, the other focussed on the 1954 Australian Grand Prix at Southport Queensland where Maybach 2 (below) met a violent death under Stanley when its chassis broke, or more specifically several rather critical welds failed.

I’m not going to pop up any photos which will draw the eye away from Brian’s artistry.
