Chassis No. AM1071084, Engine No. AM1071084. Dark blue over black leather. 4136-cc, 260-hp V-8. 5-speed manual. Four Weber carburetors, steel wheels with hubcaps, narrow whitewalls. Wood-rim steering wheel, wood shift knob, later cassette stereo, dash clock, Smiths gauges, power windows, and air conditioning.

Evaluation: Visually maintained, largely original | Chrome is tired and scratched, and there are a few dents in the front bumper. Older repaint looks fine from a distance but has several scratches, orange peel on the rear, and severe blistering on the right rear door and above the right front wheel. Light pitting on the wheels and door handles. Dry weather stripping. The dash and gauges look great, but the leather is dry and cracked. Some of the switchgear is worn as well. Maintained underneath, but a bit grubby. Mostly original and reasonably well kept. A rarely seen example of one of Maserati’s first four-doors.

Bottom Line: The Frua-penned body is attractive even if it isn’t staggeringly beautiful, and a quad-cam V-8 lurks under the hood. Also, there’s room for a few friends. And yet less than 50 grand isn’t out of the ordinary for a driver-quality Quattroporte. Classic Maseratis typically represent a good value as far as large classic Italian performance cars go—QPs even more so.
