Chassis #2513
Engine #no engine
Color exterior - Red.
Color interior - Black
A 1954 customer car for built for Alfred (A.E.) Moss, Stirling's father, and actually ordered through Shell-BP in Italy. 2508 was delivered in May 1954. It was also raced by Stirling Moss even after he joined the works team at the end of the 1954 season.
Chassis 2508 had a unique pedal arrangement: rather than the typical clutch-throttle-brakes setup used in Italian monopostos, 2508 had its pedals in the order of clutch-brakes-throttle. The works used 2508 to test various experimental engines in 1954 until 2501 was ready. It was retro-fitted with the new riveted rear tank before the end of the year. In 1955, chassis 2508 was retained by the Moss family and raced by a number of drivers. 2508 was rebodied for the 1956 season. At the end of 1956, 2508 was returned to the factory and was stored temporarily. Sold in 1957 to Ross Jensen of New Zealand. The chassis was re-numbered, for obscure paperwork reasons, as '2513' at that time. It returned to the UK and renumbered, correctly, as 2508.
