First registered in Paris on 10 October 1969, the Mistral we are offering for sale was the last to be sold new by the importer Thépenier. First owned by a French prefect, the car was then sold to its second owner, who was well known among enthusiasts for fine
Italian GTs. He kept the car for many years but didn’t drive it, keeping it laid up until it found redemption with one of his friends in 1996. A demanding collector, he stripped the car down completely and had its bodywork restored with the same care he lavished on the many Ferraris filling his garage. From its chassis to its upholstery, everything was tastefully restored, leaving nothing to chance. The engine, gearbox and rear axle were completely rebuilt and the fuel injection system overhauled by one of the leading Maserati specialists, Bill McGrath, in England. The suspension, brakes, wiring loom, interior, chromework, all the door and window seals… everything was restored with no expense spared. More than 20 years later, the standard of restoration was such that nothing has changed! Each stage in the work was documented and can be examined in a large photo album which retraces the car’s history from its purchase through to its restoration. The car is now showing 88,854km (55,211 miles), and there can be no doubt that this is its original mileage. Beautiful to look at, and with a remarkable history, this Maserati Mistral 4000 presents an opportunity to acquire one of the finest classic six-cylinder Maseratis.
