Presented here is a very early example of the first production automobile to come from Maserati, the 3500GT. Since this car is such an early example, it does have a couple of unique design features not found on a majority of 3500Gts. A few notable differences are the absence of vent windows, slightly different dashboard configurations, and the presence of front fender vents. This particular car is the 14th car in the series and is the first “known” car that is not a very unique prototype, according to the registry.
The 3500 is a complete car but is partially disassembled currently. The previous owner had the car for over 20 years and had plans to decommission the engine. He never got to finish the car as you can see, but that has created an excellent opportunity for a new owner. While this car does have some significant wear and tear, the engine could be built and mechanicals could be worked over, and all the cosmetics could be left as is, leaving you with a Patina’d, driving 3500GT. If that is not quite your style, this car would be a perfect candidate for a full restoration.
The lack of rust on this car is one of the major reasons why it would be such an excellent candidate for restoration. The chassis on this car is completely solid, and the car really has no rust on it anywhere to be seen. The great original condition of the aluminum coachwork is another factor that would make this car a great candidate for a full restoration. The Touring Superleggerra coachwork is absolutely beautiful, with very little dents and dings, extremely rare for a car with such a soft body. The panel fit is like original and quite excellent, showing there has never been any major work or accident damage anywhere on the car. This car is also totally complete and assembled minus the engine. It is always preferable to start off with a car put together, whether you are restoring it from the ground up or just putting it back together.
The history on this automobile is very detailed and was researched in 2014 by Walter Baumer at International Maserati Research. The car was sold new to its first owner in Torino Italy, reportedly with special camshafts, different from other production 3500Gts. After that first owner, we have a complete log of every owner of this car and where they were located.
