AM101/S10*295* - Sebring 3.7 Series 2 - 1965

Sebring 8

This gorgeous Sebring II was, according to copies of the Maserati Ordine in Fabbrica , first ordered on December 6, 1965 and destined for the show stand of the 1966 Barcelona Motor Show. In putting their best foot forward to highlight the model on the Iberian Peninsula, s/n 295 was ordered in Celeste Chiaro (light blue) over Rossa (red) leather with matching carpets and outfitted from new with air conditioning, wire wheels, oval exhaust tips, and a tool roll. According to the copy of the Avviso Spedizione , the car was completed on March 23, 1966 and shipped to Spain for its time on the show stand in Barcelona from April 14-24. Of the 247 Sebring Series IIs produced, this car was that 113th built, and of the 130 Series IIs fitted with the more power 3.7-liter motor, it was the 44th.

After its time in the spotlight in Barcelona, the Maserati remained in Europe, eventually finding its way to the UK in 1998 in the collection of Peter Martin. Coming to the USA in 2005, the current owner acquired the car in 2008 from a close friend who had brought the car Stateside. Believed to have been rotisserie restored in Europe, at which time it was finished in its current period correct livery of Burgundy Red over Beige hides, the car has been lovingly cared for since coming to the USA. Receipts on file dating back to 2006 and totaling over $40,000 document regular mechanical and cosmetic servicing, including engine work by Savannah Race Engineering and interior work by multiple award winning specialist Dan Kilpatrick. As a testament to the quality of this example, it has been shown at both the Amelia Island Concours and The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering.

Complete with scanned copies of its original Maserati build sheet and shipping notice, Maserati Certificate of Origin, numerous receipts, service handbook and parts guide, as well as a copy of a brochure for the model, this Sebring II would make a lovely show car or stellar tour car welcome on any number of desirable events.
