1965 MASERATI SEBRING 3500 GTI SERIES 1 COUPE BY VIGNALE:
--Medium Azzuro Metalizato with Red leather interior, Red carpeting, 3.5 liter straight 6-cylinder engine, 5-Speed ZF manual transmission, Styled by Giovanni Michelotti at Vignale, Rare 1 of 348 Series 1 cars, Restored, Matching Numbers, Collector-owned, Borrani wire wheels.
With success of the 3500 GT, Maserati released an updated version in 1963 now called the Sebring, with homage from their 1957 racing victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring. The Sebring was built on the short-wheelbase chassis of the 3500 Spyder and therefore subsequently styled by Vignale. The 5-speed gearbox, four-wheel disc brakes and fuel injection were now all standard equipment. During previous ownership of this Sebring, the original engine was converted from the Lucas fuel injection system to triple Weber carburetors.
This Sebring has been superbly restored and retains its original numbers matching engine. Coming from an excellent collection, the previous owner made sure all systems in the Maserati were always maintained regardless of use. This Sebring is in exceptional condition throughout and includes its original tool kit and jack. An iconic example of Maserati’s six-cylinder GT cars, this Sebring is one of the finest examples available and ready for immediate use and enjoyment. A welcomed addition to a single garage or collection alike.
