Maybe not. That's why I made it a question :)

Didn't one of the Piccolo 250Fs have radiator outlets on the top of the nose? As with all aerodynamic efforts of the 1950s, it's difficult to tell whether they let air in or out. I think they were also bodied by Fantuzzi so there's a link with the Cegga.


Nostrils go a little further back than that...

No opening in nose here, David, just a deceptive paint-job maybe.

I would suggest that Simpson's has is the oil cooler up the back...

Interesting variation with Matich's car, I've never noticed that one before.
