The Maserati 4CLT was introduced in 1948 as a development of the pre-war 4CL. Italian legend, Alberto Ascari drove the car to victory in its first race at the Sanremo Grand Prix, earning the car its nickname Sanremo. In addition to Ascari, Luigi Villoresi, Reg Parnell, joined by Juan Manuel Fangio and Toulo de Graffenried all piloted the 4CLT. The car was successful throughout 1949, winning 5 of the first 15 races. The cockpit is typical of early grand prix cars. A large wood rimmed steering wheel, simple dash layout with the tachometer, and various gauges to measure oil and water temperatures.
The Office Circa 1949 was shot at a concurs at Lime Rock Park in 1978 on Kodachrome 64. After being scanned, the image was converted to black and white during post processing.
