The book begins with the front-engined Birdcage Maserati competition history from the middle of 1959 until the end of 1960, covering World Championship, professional USAC and Nassau Speedweek racing. From there it progresses into chapters covering the development of the first rear-engined Birdcage Maserati at the end of 1960 and the background of the private team owners who bought the first production cars: Briggs Cunningham, Count Giovanni Volpi and Lucky Casner. From then on each chapter covers a event in which these cars were raced, ranging from the World Championship rounds to the U.S. racing scene as sponsored by SCCA [amateur] and USAC [professional], and including the British Nassau Speedweek at the end of the year. The subject period covered is 1961 to 1965. Each race report includes a complete entry list, complete starting grids and complete results. This is information never published beyond the WSCC events and of great historical value. Coverage: The competition history and technical specifications of all 10 rear-engined Birdcages constructed, as well as their direct competition: Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Lotus, Cooper, Lister, Scarab, Chaparral, Sting Ray and Old Yaller.
