1969 Maserati Ghibli
Rare and iconic Italian Grand Tourer from the 1960’s Super car era. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Maserati while at Ghia. One of only 1,170 built 1967 through 1973.
This example has an original 80,032 Km (49,478 miles). Purchased new by a Doctor in the mild climate of Italy….. bought by the second owner and shipped to San Diego California in 1979. A now retired engineer I bought this car directly from him. It is equipped with the 4.7 engine, ZF 5 Speed manual transmission and Air Conditioning. I have the Maserati “Certificate Of Origin” on hand… Ordered 7/10/1968, built February 1969. Original matching numbers engine and transmission. The color is “Verde Acqua” with “Cinghiale” leather interior.
This example has always been garaged and well cared for, and shows it throughout. A very nice survivor that I have recently restored only where needed. It was to nice and original to do anything more extensive…. It retains all its factory interior with the exception of the recovered front seats to factory specs in matching leather. Repainted for the first time in it’s original color, a tough decision but unfortunately the original paint was beyond saving. Always rust free, no crashes… it was stripped to bare metal with all glass removed. New rubber seals replaced throughout. Re-chromed trim where necessary. The result is stunning and looks factory fresh. Major mechanical service including brakes, rebuilt carburetors, A/C, new stainless steel exhaust and more….
Runs and drives fantastic….. tight and responsive. Shifts flawlessly through all
gears…… a thrill to drive. If you are in the market for a first generation Ghibli you would want to consider this example….
