The Series II model presented here was competed in July 1965 and would be delivered farther south within the country on August 10th, 1965 to Mr. Rosa D’Agostino of Rome. Completed in the beautiful color combination of Azzuro Vincennes with a Senape interior, the vehicle has retained this original configuration from the very beginning and is verified by Maserati Classiche. Of the additional features, this car was optioned with air conditioning, which further adds to the luxury and usability of the gran tourer. Unfortunately, the ownership history beyond the initial Roman proprietor is relatively unknown. More contemporarily, the car was bought in the Netherlands in 2013.
Despite this history, the car has been well-cared for and the chassis, engine block and head all match the data plate. Another miraculous detail is the fact that the original Lucas fuel injection system has endured the care of many owners. In earlier decades, it was relatively common for the fuel delivery to be swapped over to carburetors for the sake of increased simplicity. We can report that the injection system has been attended to by the proper specialists. In addition, the brakes, clutch and steering box have received attention more recently.
Overall, the car is properly sorted mechanically, and cosmetically in good shape. Both the body and the interior of the car present well, and with a bit of work could be shown as a strong contender at most Concours. The Sebring is a timeless classic who’s dashing good looks and Inline-6 howl are sure the stir up the strongest emotions from even the most casual gear-head.
