Description: 1960 Maserati 3500 GT
Titre de circulation anglais
Châssis n° AM 101*1154*
Moteur n° AM 101*1154*

- Désirable série 1 au dessin le plus pur
- Belle restauration
- Moteur et couleur d''origine

Produite entre 1957 et 1964, on pourrait dire que la 3500 GT a sauvé Maserati de la ruine financière. Le prototype, un coupé par Touring fut présenté au salon de Genève 1957 et les commandes commencèrent à s''accumuler à partir du Salon de Turin la même année.
L''exemplaire présenté est sorti d''usine le 31 octobre 1960 dans une livrée noire combinée à un intérieur cuir naturel. Commandée neuve par le marquis Emilio Pallavicino, ce dernier avait donné pour adresse celle de l''Automobile Club d''Italie de Firenze. Elle lui fut livrée le 21 novembre 1960 accompagnée de 5 jantes et de la trousse à outils. La voiture fut ensuite la propriété d''un artiste de Trieste M. Malet Bruno. On retrouve ensuite la voiture dans la région de Trévise chez M. Valerio Zardi, père du pilote Danny Zardi. La voiture perdit alors sa configuration d''origine en bénéficiant d''une préparation rallye qui avait été effectuée par M. Zardi dans son atelier, Valle Elaborazioni qui prépare aussi bien des voitures anciennes que modernes. L''actuel propriétaire en fit l''acquisition en 2015 et la restaura par un atelier spécialisé de Toscane afin de lui rendre ses spécifications de sortie d''usine, démarche louable et particulièrement couteuse.
Cet exemplaire fait partie de la désirable première série, dont le dessin est le plus pur, avec ses petits feux ronds auxquels succèderont des versions rectangulaires, et sans la vitre de custode qui apparaitra sur la série 2. Il s''agit d''une belle occasion de devenir l''heureux propriétaire d''un des chefs d''œuvre de Maserati.



British title
Chassis n° AM 101*1154*
Engine n° AM 101*1154*

- Very desirable 1st series
- Nicely restored
- Matching numbers, matching colours

Manufactured between 1957 and 1964 it could be said that the Tipo 101 3500GT saved Maserati from financial ruin.. The prototype, a coupé by Touring, was presented in Geneva in March 1957 and orders started to flow in after the Turin motor show the same year.
The Maserati 3500 GT on offer left the factory on the 31 October 1960 in a black with natural colored leather interior livery. It was ordered new by Marquis Emilio Pallavicino, who gave as his address c/o ACI Firenze, via Cavour 18. The car was delivered to him with 5 wheels and a tool kit on 21 November 1960. The car was then acquired by an artist, Mr Malet Bruno from Trieste. Then, the car appears in the Treviso region, in the hands of Mr Valerio Zardi''s, father of pilot Danny Zardi. It then lost its original configuration to benefit from a rally preparation by Mr Zardi in his workshop, Valle Elabozazioni which prepares classic cars as well as modern ones.The current owner purchased it in 2015 and had it restored to be put back in its original configuration by a workshop in Tuscany. The Maserati is now consistent with the configuration it has when it left the factory. This Maserati 3500 is a very desirable first series which is the purest, with the small round, rather than rectangular, indicators, and without the second side-vent window that was a less elegant addition on the series 2. This Maserati 3500 is
