Thank you for the pictures. They also show the Mercedes-Benz W125 as used in the 1939 mountain climbs. First time I saw another picture of this car besides the ones taken at the race.

1963 was when Ferrari finally abandoned his beloved Borrani wire-spoked wheel in favour of Campagnolo cast magnesium wheels. At the start of the year they used knock-off centre locks, but replaced these with bolts at the Nurburgring (as used by the Brits for some time!). I have a picture of the car in Spa trim and the wheels seem similar to the museum car (apart from the bolts, of course).
As for the engine cover, all my sources show the 1963 car had a low cover, so I don't know where this one came from.

The Compagnola wheels were of quite a complex design and at first glance I though they were much simpler, more like the dunlop wheels used by BRM. Closer examination suggests I was wrong.As John says, they had knock off hubs until the Nurburgring. By the next race, Surtees had the monocoque. so, apart from the racing number, it looks very much like the German GP winner.
Sorry for the blind allay.

This is not unusual for museums to "restore" a car as it was when found or purchased for the museum, rather than taking it back to its original guise.
Daimler-Benz have been guilty of this with a lot of their museum cars.
Can anyone throw any light on these Maseratis?
On another note, when I went to that museum one of the things that really stuck in my mind was the rows and rows of Gordini race cars. They had more on display than I had imagined were ever built - and they had more in the workshop.
Are the Gordinis still displayed en masse like that?
