This 1968 Maserati Ghibli is a very early production SS #25 of

the time, it was imported to the United States.
A cosmetic restoration was performed to include a bare metal
repaint in its original Verde Gemma, the windshield trim, rear
window trim and bumpers were re-chromed, various lights and trim
work replaced as well as all weather-stripping. The interior was
reupholstered in the factory original Senape leather with Beige

differential fluids, Carburetor rebuild, Cam cover gaskets,
Ignition - Distributor service, Cooling system service, New

Power comes from a replacement Maserati 4.7-liter quad-cam V8
somewhere along the way and during the Ghibli's past. The engine
was reportedly sourced from another Ghibli and installed sometime
during previous ownership.
We purchased this Maserati for our collection and use for various
events and rallies. It was enjoyed on this years NE1000 rally,
through some of the best roads of Connecticut, New England and
Vermont. A total of 1,400 trouble free miles was accumulated
driving to, on the event and back home to Autosport Designs,
Since, the Ghibli has been used for weekend cruising and a few
drives to and from The Hamptons. Having developed a noise in 5th
gear, we decided to remove the gearbox for a total rebuild.
To date, we have serviced this Ghibli when and where needed to
ensure it would be ready for any event we chose to take part
On a recent road test (please see video), this Ghibli is excellent
in all areas and with absolutely no disappointments. It is complete
with factory books, tools, jack/pouch as well as Maserati
certificate and records.
