1960 Maserati 3500 GT Spyder par Vignale For Sale by Auction

For sale in our forthcoming auction in Paris, on 8 february 2019. Dutch title Chassis n° AM101*1033* Engine n° AM101*1033* - Matching numbers - Original hard-top - Nicely restored and well maintained Manufactured between 1957 and 1964, it could be said that the 3500 GT saved Maserati from financial ruin. The previous model, the extraordinary A6G 2000, had been produced on too small a scale. The costs incurred by the competition department were extremely high, and despite winning the World Championship in 1957, the Trident marque was in poor financial shape when, for the first time, a Maserati production model finally appeared that was a commercial success. The prototype, a coupé by Touring, was presented in Geneva on 20 March 1957 and the orders started to flow in from the Turin Motor Show in the same year. The superb engine was derived directly from the racing machines and the car had great road handling. The coachbuilder Allemano built four coupés between 1958-59 and during this last year, Bertone built one coupé and Pietro Frua one spider. Apart from these exceptions, Touring was responsible for the manufacture of all coupés. Disc brakes were fitted as an option in 1959 and became standard in 1960. The factory produced seven coupés a week during 1960, and 88 short chassis models that were given spider bodies by Vignale. While almost 2000 coupés rolled off the production line, a little under 250 spiders saw the light of day. The car on offer, chassis number AM101*1033*, left the Maserati factory in Modena on 15 September 1960, one of 88 cars completed that year. The factory build sheet, of which there is a copy in the file, shows that it was destined for the American market, equipped with optional front disc brakes and 16-inch Borrani wire wheels. At the time the car was " Grigio Cascine', a dark pastel grey with red leather interior. There are a few old photos of the car in this initial colour scheme included in the file. It was first registered in 1976 in the name of Stephen Bantz from Champaign, Illinois. In 1984, the car belonged to Modern Classics Ltd in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and was sold the same year to the well-known collector Ed Waterman from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It was then repainted ivory, while keeping its original red leather interior. In 1986, the car sold to a Maserati collector from the Netherlands, who decided to have a full, top-quality restoration carried out, which took two years. The car was given the livery it retains today, red with a black leather interior. A correct and highly desirable ZF 5-speed gearbox was sourced and fitted. Following the restoration, the owner gained much satisfaction from driving the car regularly. A Dutch enthusiast became the current owner in 2006, and he has used the Maserati as it was designed to be used : for exhilarating journeys in an open-top Italian thoroughbred, the GranTurismo. In the spring of 2018, a full inspection and service was carried out by the specialist workshop PKCC. This included overhauling the engine, front and rear suspension, steering, brakes, engine mounts, water pump and clutch. There is a file available that documents this recent work. Here is a stunning and desirable Maserati 3500GT Vignale Spider presented in fresh condition, with full matching numbers and its original factory hard-top. It is ready for a spin to a sunny destination of your choice ! Auction estimate: €600 000 / 700 000
