This Sebring was sold new in November 1963 to the Maserati dealership at Saint Cloud, near Paris, and the car was registered in 1964. The colour of the car then was “verde dora” and it was equipped with wire wheels, with the interior in brown leather. Its current owner, an English engineer living in France, acquired the car in 1980 at Chartres, following the bankruptcy of a company whose director had been using the car since 1967. He began a mechanical restoration, with the replacement of the sleeves and pistons and rebuilt the crankshaft with pieces from the well known Richard Crump. The suspension was redone by Zuliani at their workshop. At the end of 1980, the body was repainted to a sky blue shade. The original interior and carpets have been retained, with the seats in nice brown Connolly leather with lovely patina. In general, the car is in line with its original appearance despite the chrome rims. It has its original engine, a 235bhp 3.5-litre with injection, mated to a five-speed ZF 'box. An invoices file accompanies the car, along with an original sales brochure for this very elegant model.
