No, he only posted the discrepancy!
YOU inserted in the file 51122 on 5 June 2010:
"Type 51 Grand Prix ex 4962"
And also YOU inserted in the file 51133 on 7 March 2009:
"Type 51 Grand Prix (ex Type 35 C 4962) "

not Alessandria in 1931

Of course the photos are from Alessandria 1931!

The T35C #4962 was a 1930 workscar, registration 7698-NV.
The T51 engine #6 was installed, but the car didn't change identity, it still had serial #4962 and registration 7698-NV. It was painted red and used by Varzi under private entry at Tunis and Alessandria.
Varzi did NOT use this car at Monaco, where he raced a blue works car, most probably #51122 (3276-NV1).
Only later - may be in May or June - #4962 changed officially identity to #51133, and was re-registered 4800-NV-1 on 7.7.1931. Probably used as spare car, and given to Chiron at the end of the season.

Stop thinking black-white only! In 1931 Varzi raced at least 4 different T51, plus the ones he shared with Chiron for the 10 hour races!

Michael, just a minor point: 4962 was not a 35C but a 35B before being rebuilt into 51133.

What is your source?
Understand 4962 was one of the 3 works cars for the 1930 GP Belgium, all of which had been T35C.
