Known History From New Including Forty Years of Single Ownership and Care between 1972-2012 #2372 is a late example of Maserati's famed Ghibli 4.9 Liter SS Coup�, completed in July of 1972 by Officine A. Maserati S.p.A., wearing Oro Kelso (gold) paint over Black Connoly leather with comforts worthy of such a thoroughbred GT: adjustable steering column, anti-theft steering lock, tinted & electric windows, reclining seats with head rests, heated rear windscreen, dashboard clock and air conditioning. Long excursions are intended to be comfortable thanks to power steering and plenty of power on reserve from the 4.9 liter V8 motor. Maserati S.p.A. of Modena confirms with original Certificate of Origin that all chassis, engine and body numbers are matching as it left the factory. Additional Classiche documents include: Final Tests data Sheet, Technical & Aesthetic Characteristics, End of Line Data Sheet and Delivery Note.
The SS was delivered to the States through Grossman Motor Cars Corp. of New York, and sold new on March 8, 1974 with a trade in of a 1971 E-Type. A copy of the original Bill of Sale accompanies 2372. In an interview with the original owner a resident of the Hamptons in NY he stated that he was originally in the market for a Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona but after driving both the Ghibli SS and the Daytona at the selling dealer he decided that the Ghibli was just a much smoother car and that he fell in love with the drivability and overall feel. The Ghibli spent a great deal of its life in the area under original ownership until the beginning of this decade, and still retains a period East Hampton parking permit on the left rear side glass. In 2013 the SS was purchased and sent to Italy by its second caretaker for a complete nut and bolt restoration to a delivery new appearance, specification and mechanical prowess by marque experts. The results are simply stunning. This 3-owner car makes a statement in every setting, especially with its Oro Kelso paint, brilliant brightwork and a concours level fit and finish throughout - All lending a gorgeous luxurious presence not often expressed in this model.
Aside from the dossier of Maserati Classiche documentation, the car is complete with concours quality Tool Roll, matching Spare Wheel, Use & Maintenance Manual and Spare Parts Manual. DriverSource has bought and sold nearly two dozen Ghiblis and we can undoubtedly say that this is by far one of the finest examples we have ever offered.
The restoration sets the bar high, if you have been in the market for a top of the line Ghibli 4.9SS you will be hard pressed to find a finer example. To find fault on this car will prove challenging and we can strongly recommend it to collectors and enthusiast alike. Now available for worldwide purchase and delivery.
