In the set of thumbs of the 'shop where 13 yo Fangio got his first job' the proprietor must have been a Studebaker agent. The cars are all 1927 Studebakers.

There seem to be several versions of Fangio's early life. This one - Link to "www.encyclopedia.com" - says he competed in his first race when he was 16, as a mechanic in a Plymouth. The first Plymouth was announced in July 1928 which was not long after he turned 17. His birthday was 24 June 1911.

This car - /vehicle_1144395.html - might be a 1928 Plymouth, but it does not look like it is going racing.

I take the info in the encyclopaedia site with a grain of salt because it says in 1936 Fangio built his first race car out of a taxi - 'basically a six cylinder Ford engine in a rusty chassis'. Ford did not build six cylinder engines at that time. Whether it was a four or V8 I guess we will never know.

He was 19, according to "Fangio: A Pirelli Album" by Doug Nye and Stirling Moss. The driver was his brother-in-law Brujas Font, and the car a '28 Plymouth.

At least the date is correct: 24 Oct 1936, on a modified '29 Model A taxi lent by a friend's father. They installed a new 2-seater body, but there is no mention of the engine.
