1967 Maserati Maxico

Sale Price
Lot Number
Cosmetic Restoration
RM Sotheby's
Auction House
Chassis No. AM1121118. Rosso Rubino over black leather. 4719-cc, 290-hp V-8, 5-speed manual. Borrani wire wheels, Pirelli tires, power steering, wood-rim steering wheel, wood dash, wood shift knob, air conditioning, later Kenwood cassette stereo.

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.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
