The Maserati Ghibli
The Maserati Ghibli one of the most handsome and iconic car of the 1960s. Unquestionably, it was certainly one of the fastest. It was styled in Ghia’s studios by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the iconic designer who would become a legend later on.
The Ghibli was unveiled at the 1966 Turin Motor Show and was very well received. The striking bodywork was wrapped around an aluminium-block V-8 engine, with dry-sump lubrication and double overhead cams. The Ghibli, including SS and cabriolet variants, outsold both of its biggest rivals, the Ferrari Daytona and the Lamborghini Miura.
Despite outselling its closest rivals in period, less than 1,149 examples of the Ghibli coupé were produced between 1967 and 1972, ensuring that the Ghibli is today a very coveted classic sports car by many discerning collectors.
Chassis AM115.532. Engine AM115.532. Matching numbers. This handsome example was supplied new via Maserati’s Modena workshop in early 1967 and was originally finished in white with black leather to the interior, equipped with 5 speeds ZF manual transmission.
Although AM115.532’s early whereabouts remain unknown it resurfaces in the early 2000s at which time it was restored by renowned Ferrari / Maserati marque experts Bob Smith Coachworks of Gainesville, Texas. Considering the car’s condition today, it is only fair to say that it has been thoroughly maintained and preserved over the past 15 years. Today finished in gloss black with grey leather to the interior, and despite some slight imperfections in some areas of the bodywork, it is visually stunning.
The doors, bonnet and lid are very well fitted to the body of the car. There are some small marks of chips along the rocker panels and front valence due to road use in recent years. The engine bay is very well sorted and finished according to period factory standards. It runs perfectly with excellent torque. The transmission is smooth and reliable as it should be. The suspensions have been sorted nicely and the car responds extremely well. Although showing signs of general use, there are no signs previous damages from the undercarriage whatsoever. The car has been fitted with brand new Pirelli CN72/205/VR tires.
This is a great opportunity to acquire a very fine and early example of the legendary Maserati Ghibli 4.7 in a striking colour combination and structurally very solid.
