    Also, looks like there's another 300 Coupe although not by M-B.
    2nd car behind the Ferrari appear to have characteristics of a 1957 Chrysler 300C.

    I have a note of a photo appearing in the Ferrari Annual for 1955. The photo shows three cars.

    #54 Ferrari 750 Monza of Luigi Piotti (the winner). Chassis "should be" 0514M.
    #42 Ferrari 750 Monza of Luigi Bordonaro (2nd). Chassis "should be" 0530M.
    #30 OSCA MT4 appears to be chassis 1151, a car owned at the time by Giulio Cabianca.

    I've not done any specific research to verify any of the above chassis numbers. I have no obvious notes of having seen any other photos but it may be possible to find some.

    And the blue car flashing by in the second photo appears to be Roger Porre in Osca MT4 1500 s/n 1161 (#34).

    Contrary to the "appears to be" note I posted above, #30 OSCA is the 2000cc (6-cylinder), chassis number 2002. The Milano plate in the grille opening confirms the identity.

    #48 should be Jean Estager's 750 Monza s/n 0526M

    I think the only unknown, and so far the only one without a photo is Borgeaud's Ferrari on race #38.

    Best

    Here is the 750 Monza of Jean Estager No. 48 (0526M) to the GP in Tunis in 1955.

    This is Serge Maumont, the chief engineer of Jean Estager which driver 0526M for the start of Race.

    Some documents for proofs...

    Serge Maumont was also at the service of Louis Rosier in 1955-1956.

    (Please forgive me for the quality of some pictures).
