This particular example was converted in period to utilise the more-reliable Weber carburettor induction instead of the original Lucas fuel injection, a common modification. A five-speed, manual transmission model, chassis number ‘01897’ was delivered new to Thepenier, the Maserati importer in Paris, and has remained in France ever since, featuring in Rétroviseur magazine some years ago. Between 2006 and 2008 the car underwent total restoration in Italy: the mechanicals and electrical system being overhauled, brightwork renovated, interior re-trimmed, wheels re-chromed by Borrani and a stainless steel exhaust fitted among many other works carried out. Finished in its original colour scheme of light blue metallic with red leather interior, this stylish 1960s Italian classic is offered with sundry restoration invoices; Maserati letter confirming build and despatch details; and French Carte Grise.
