Coupe
Coachwork: Zagato
Chassis #: 006
Engine #: 003
Sold for $489,000 at 2019 Gooding & Company : Amelia Island.
The Officine Specializzate Construzione Automobili, or OSCA Company was founded in 1947 by the Maserati brothers, who had sold their company 10 years earlier. They intended to build competition cars, however, economics dictated they return to constructing small-displacement road cars in a limited quantity.

This particular example is one of the limited-production coupes built and one of approximately 100 Zagato-bodied cars. Possibly as few as 60 chassis were sold. Designed by Ercole Spada, it wore hand-formed lightweight alloy coachwork over a tube-frame assembly. The iconic 'double-bubble' roofline allowed its occupants additional headroom.

It is believed that this example has had one two owners before being acquired by Bellancanto S.p.a. Beginning in 2009, the engine was given a restoration, which included custom CP pistons and Carrillo connecting rods, which were shaved for reduced weight before being blueprinted and balanced. NOS parts included the flywheel, ring gear, water pump impeller, and oil pump gears. Additional work was performed in 2012, addressing the suspension, steering, and a bare-metal repaint in the car's original red color.
