Experts Agree Maserati Birdcage Tipo 61-2459 Might Be The Best Yet

Limited. Classic. Historic

Who is Responsible for the Restoration of the Maserati Birdcage?


The Birdcage has a loyal following, who are knowledgeable and eager to learn more about this classic. Well, here is some historically accurate information on the restoration of the Maserati Birdcage Tipo 61-2459. This beauty was completed in March 2010 by Steve Hart Restoration and Race Preparation Ltd. in England. 


Steve Hart Racing: A Brief History


The name Steve Hart is very well known to anyone who knows about Historic Racing.   

From his base in rural Norfolk, UK, Steve Hart and his experienced team travel the historic circuit to offer track side support and advise to the many owners who have entrusted their precious racing and road cars to him.


With 25 years in the restoration and race preparation, Steve Hart admits to a particular fondness for Maserati's, although the quality of his team's workmanship has spread to other marques including Ferrari, Alpha, etc.  Dealing with predominantly racing cars means a far higher reliance on making parts and this area of the business is headed up by Steve's father David a talented machinist.  They can supply every conceivable part (well almost)!


The restoration side of the business has seen a workshop full over the years with many wonderful cars.  Let us dwell on one in particular, perhaps the finest front engine sports racers ever constructed. We are of course talking of the Maserati Birdcage Tipo 61. Most other Birdcages around the world have received some help, love, or attention from Steve Hart Racing.


Successful race preparation is not just about precision engineering, but also precision project management.  The Team at Steve Hart Racing have a fanatical desire for perfection, with historically significant cars, they undertake any project from partial repairs to full, sympathetic bare metal rebuild whilst maintaining originality. They are the proven specialists for producing fast, reliable race cars of race winning quality.
