DESCRIPTION

SOLD: 1961 MASERATI 3500GT VIGNALE SPYDER. This car has undergone a complete mechanical, body and soft trim restoration by one of the Premier Shops in Canada. With only 243 of these Coachbuilt cars made, you will own a Truly Rare Classic. The 3500GT was the first Maserati built in any significant number; 2,223 cars were built from 1957 to 1965 and Carrozzeria Touring built most of the coupes, while Vignale built all but one of the 243 spyders. When new, the Maserati Vignale spyder competed in price with the new Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina spyder; while Ferrari focused solely on performance, the 3500GT was a refined GT car that delivered performance as well as creature comforts and luxury details! Engine: 6 cylinder, inline, DOHC 3.39″ bore, 3.94″ stroke 212.6 cubic inch 230 bhp. @ 5500 rpm. From Germany the ZF (Zahnradfabrik of Friedrichshafen) gearbox, and from England the clutch assembly by Borg and Beck, the rear differential by Salisbury and front and rear suspension components from Alford Alder. History photocopy of a barely legible fax from Maserati S.r.l., signed by E. Cozza of Maserati Modena. The fax is dated 11/04/90, and is directed to Mr. A.D. Butt. It indicates that chassis number 101-1019 was built in September 1960. The original exterior was dark grey metallic. The interior was blue. It was originally sold to Julian Ringling of 201-8th Street, Baraboo, Wisconsin, USA, who lived in Rome at the time. In 1963 the vehicle was the property of Charles E. Emmert of 368 Jane Lane, Stanford, Connecticul, USA who was also living in Rome at the time. They can confirm this because he purchased some spare parts from Maserati. In 1966 the vehicle was in the United States, and after that Maserati has no further information about the history. The vehicle was ultimately purchased by A.D. Butt, and was transfered to M. Schacht of Toronto, Canada in August 2001.
