PRODUCT DETAILS

 

Prior to the car arriving in the United States, it had been in the hands of a long time Dutch owner, during their Stewardship the vehicle was the beneficiary of a no expense spared full mechanical and body restoration over a 6 year period.

There had been a large amount of research that had gone into the restoration prior. Down to the smallest of details - as an example, when these cars when new they were fitted with a distinctive truck mat. Even this has been made correctly via a specialist company in Germany - a reflection of how minutely the restoration work was undertaken.

The star that saved the company: Maserati was not known for building beautiful GT cars in the 1950's. Racing was the primary interest of the automotive division.

Alfieri Maserati S.p.A. and the car and motorcycle portions of the company were actually secondary to the machine tool business that brought in the real money. But times were hard at Maserati and in April 1958 the company was placed in the hands of a receiver for reorganisation. Part of that reorganization was to turn the car division towards building luxury touring cars and the first was the 3500GT.

The star was unveiled to the motoring world at the 1957 Geneva Auto Show on the stand of the body constructor Superleggera Touring Milan. The GT went into production later that year and continued until 1964 when production ceased with a total of 1972 vehicles were built worldwide.
