This beautiful car is much admired and is well known to the UK Maserati Owners Club and McGrath Maserati. It was properly restored in Italy and has been maintained and fettled to a very high standard ever since. It is in regular use and is without problem. Recently it covered 1,000 miles on the ‘Maserati International Rally’ based at Gleneagles, Scotland.
The current owner purchased it in Italy and it was driven back to the UK 19 years ago. It was originally sold new by Pozzi in Paris and resided (of course) in the glamorous 1960’s south of France.
This is one of the very best examples available and has been looked after correctly regardless of cost for many many years.
