Offered here in enticing ‘barn-find’ condition, is a largely original example of the desirable 4-Liter Mistral. Although this Maserati’s early history remains unclear, it is known to have been owned by a Mr. Johnson of Pebble Beach, CA by the early 1980s. It was here purchased in October of 1983 by the consignors father, Mr. Davis of El Cerrito, CA. Mr. Davis would keep the car on the road for just at few years, before parking it in his dry garage, covered up, where it has remained until now!
Today, this sophisticated Frua-bodied Maserati is found to be in largely original and undisturbed condition throughout. The cars interior appears to be as installed by the factory when the car was new, and the 69,708 kilometers showing on the odometer are believed to be the cars actual mileage. The elegant medium-green metallic exterior shows a lovely patina, as does the brightwork. The Maserati is not in running order, and will need a thorough mechanical refurbishment before being roadworthy again. Having benefitted from being stored in the dry California climate, this exciting ‘barn-find’ is offered with old paperwork dating back to Mr. Johnsons ownership, as well as miscellaneous owners manuals. Indeed, a charming example of the stylish Frua-bodied Mistral Coupe.
