The Osca in the photo has a No.16 and the back says its the 2.0L of Chirons 1951, but i cant find any reference to a No.16 with Louis that year?
Anyone know anymore about this car?

"When the new 2-litre Formula was accepted OSCA built several cars two of which were run with some success by Chiron and Bayol. Chiron finished 2nd at Syracuse and Sables d'Olonne and won at Aix les Bains, Bayol finished 2nd at Albi. After the season was over Chiron's car was converted into a sports car since it was already outdated as a Formula car."
It was probably chassis #2002. It was later a 2000 Sport, once owned by Eric Herbranson in California (according to de Boer's list). The engine was an inline 6, producing 130BHP.
