AM101/S10*403*- Sebring 3.7 Series 2 - 1966

Sebring 15

One of the most elegant and understated Grand Touring cars of the 1960s, the Maserati Sebring offered here is a Series II model fitted with the 3.7-liter engine and five-speed ZF gearbox. According to Maserati factory paperwork, this highly original example was ordered new at Maserati in December of 1965 by Auto Paris, a Barcelona, Spain based Maserati distributor. The livery was just as it appears today, with the exterior finished in Rosso Cordoba and the interior in Pelle Bianca . The luxurious GT was finally completed in April of 1966, and soon after delivered to its first owner, a Sig. Claudio Vidal Corbera of Barcelona, according to the original Warranty booklet accompanying the car. Although an International Motor Insurance Card was issued for the Rosso Cordoba Sebring II to a Mr. Ernesto Sentis Roldan of Barcelona, Spain in June of 1968, the car is believed to have been owned and cared for by just one owner until 2014, when purchased by an esteemed Southern California based collector of the finest European sports cars. Today, this highly original and extremely well preserved Sebring presents with an absolute lovely patina throughout. Although the paintwork has been touched up, many surfaces are still in original state, and the original interior shows incredibly well. Importantly, the Maserati retains its original, matching numbers engine, and the odometer reading of less than 34,000 kilometers (22,000 miles) is indeed believed to be actual.

The Maserati has been shown at several concours events, including the Arizona and San Marino shows, where it received much recognition. The Sebring’s impressive history file include the afore mentioned Maserati Classiche paperwork, containing a copy of the original Internal Factory Order, the Delivery Note and Technical Data Sheet, as well the original warranty booklet, along with many other original documents including period registration cards and owner’s manual. A use and maintenance booklet can also be found in the file, as well as books and tools. Ready for further preservation class judging, this fine Maserati is unique through and through.
