Maserati Mexico Prototype by Vignale , shown at Torino Autoshow 1965.
The Maserati was born as 5000GT in 1962 (only 34cars made)
Therefor it has a 103..22 chassis number. Mexican President Adolfo Lopez Mateos owned the car and after damaged the car came to Vignale who created a 2+2 seater Prototype. John Surtees won that year 1965 the GrandPrix in Mexico on a Cooper Maserati. So the name "Mexico" for the Maserati was found.
to the condition:
The car is sitting since 10 years, is looking straight and solid.
Doors and trunk open end close very good, gaps are correct.
The owner said engine does not turn. But he really did not try it seriousely. He put oil into the engine to preserve. Missing is the front bumper, rear bumper is installed but chrome is bad.
Interieur and dashboard are very nice, 2door panels in the trunk. The engine 4.2 was built in 1968, is matching with the chassis. The original 4.9 was built out for some reason and disappeard in U.K.
Glasses are perfect, floors are great, tail lights in the trunk.
The car was born red.
Correctness of this car is confirmed by Maserati. On the foto dashboard you see that car is different to series.
The name “Ghibli” refers to a particular type of airflow: a hot wind blowing from the Sahara that can reach hurricane speed in North Africa. A fittingly epic name for this most epic of automobiles,.....
The Maserati 3500 GT offered here was originally born in black color and built in Milan by the Carrozzeria Touring.
The first Italian owner decided already in the early 70s to repaint this vehicle.....
