This Maserati Ghibli is a rare and exciting restoration project. Our example was sold new in France, delivered to Mr Lauvergnat by the French marque distributor, Thepenier. Built in February 1969, the 4.7-litre car was registered on the 13th of the following month, presented in " Celeste Chiaro " with black leather interior, the livery it retains today. In the same family ownership for the last 28 years, this Maserati has not run for many years. There is a record in the file of some mechanical work carried out at the start of the 2000s and a bodywork restoration, which was not carried out in accordance with the rules of the art, was probably undertaken during the 1980s. Offered in sound and complete condition overall, our Ghibli now requires a thorough restoration to return it to its former glory. It may be possible to conserve the original upholstery, its appealing patina offering a glimpse into the soul of the car. It is important to note that it retains its original engine number. The Ghibli is a particularly desirable car and it is very rare to come across such an example suitable for restoration. Here is a fantastic opportunity to revive a legendary automobile that in its day was a rival to the Daytona and the Miura.
