AM109/A1*1260* - Mistral 4.0 - 1966

2014 - Paris -

Sold for € 109,250 inc. premium

First registered on 13th June 1967, this particular Mistral has the desirable manual transmission, while the sometimes troublesome Lucas fuel infection has been replaced with a trio of twin-choke Weber 40DCOE carburettors, a popular modification among owners of these later six-cylinder Maseratis. Some €10,000 was spent on re-commissioning during 2007/2008 (see invoices on file) and in September 2009 the car was offered for sale at Bonhams’ Reims auction (Lot 146) where it was purchased by the current vendor. Since then the Mistral has benefited from a complete restoration (engine, bodywork, interior, etc) costing around €60,000 (all invoices available). These works were undertaken between 2010 and 2012 by recognised specialists including V12 Automobiles, Saint Brice (full engine rebuild); Carrosserie Axial, Tinqueux (repainting); Sellerie Chempenoise, St Brice Courcelles (complete interior re-trim); and JMW Racing, Gueux (dismantling and re-assembly). The odometer reading at time of restoration was 41,500 kilometres and currently is 46,600.

Fully restored with no expense spared, this beautiful Mistral is finished in Rosso Cordoba with butter-coloured leather interior and is presented today in superb condition. Accompanying documentation consists of the aforementioned invoices, French Carte Grise, Contrôle Technique and a detailed appraisal carried out in July 2012 by Cerede Bonoron Expertises, Paris.
