The Ex-Maserati France, Jo Siffert/Jochen Neerpasch, Le Mans
1965 Maserati Tipo 65 Sports-Racing Prototype
Chassis no. 65.002
- Although this motor car is acknowledged to be chassis 65.002, it does bear a chassis no. stamped 151.002. For these V8 series cars Maserati used only even numbers therefore 002 indicates the first (and in this case only) car built. The circumstantial evidence for this is that the 1965 entrant of this Tipo 65 was Maserati France who already held a Customs Carnet for 151.002 raced by them at Le Mans in both 1962 and 1963. Therefore the 151.002 stamping on this chassis becomes self explanatory such is the reality of motor racing.
