Evaluation: One of about 250 built. Sold new in Rome in gray over red. Restored under previous ownership in California. Light wear and no real issues.
Bottom Line: Sold at auction in the Netherlands in 2001 pre-restoration for $34,490, reportedly after a drug seizure sale by the Dutch government. It presents quite well, today, but history like that is always worth noting. Regardless, as a Vignale-bodied Maserati this was always going to be one of the stars of the Ponder sale and it wound up being the fifth most expensive car out of the collection. Although it didn’t quite meet its low estimate, this is still a strong result for a 4-speed carbureted car (later 3500s got ZF 5-speeds and fuel injection).
