This Maserati Tipo 61 Tool room copy was constructed circa 1990 by Crosthwaite & Gardiner in East Sussex, England, for Californian vintage racer and collector Don Orosco, whose original Tipo 61 reportedly served as a template for the build. The re-creation was purchased in 2008 by its previous owner, with whom it spent 10 years in Australia before being moved to Belgium. Construction incorporates a steel “birdcage” tube frame joined via TIG welds with overlaid gas welds and wrapped in hand-formed aluminum bodywork finished in red. The car is powered by a 2.9-liter DOHC inline-four that is mounted at a canted angle behind the front axle and features dry-sump lubrication, twin-plug ignition, and dual Weber 45 DCO3 carburetors.
It has afive-speed manual transaxle, four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, coil-spring independent front suspension, a de Dion rear axle,
16” Borrani wire wheels.

This Tool room copy spaceframe has been assembled using TIG welds dressed with gas welds to simulate the appearance of factory joints. Aluminum bodywork was reportedly hand-formed by Rod Jolley in Hampshire, United Kingdom.

This car comes with FIA papers.
