Evaluation: Cosmetic restoration | Sold new in Rome, originally finished in silver. One of 485 Mexicos built and 175 fitted with the 4.7-liter engine (up from 4.2). Represented as largely original underneath. Older chrome with a small scratch on the front bumper. Pitting on the window trim and door handles. Wheels look tired. Good paint. Good interior with sound wood and clear original gauges, although the trim rings are pitted. Plastic on the bumperettes is dry and cracking. Unrestored but tidy and maintained underneath. Mostly solid. Located in Indiana.
Bottom Line: Conservative-looking by Maserati standards but still attractive, fast, and comfortable with room for four, this Vignale-styled Mexico could have easily sold for more. In fact, it brought $137,500 in Scottsdale three years ago. But that was then. RM sold AM1121026, a car in comparable condition, in Arizona in January for exactly $300 less. A sound value for a sound car.
