Aubergine with Tan leather interior and Tan carpeting, restored by its former owner, ZF 5-speed manual gearbox, air conditioning, rare Webasto folding sunroof and chrome Borrani wire wheels.
Introduced as a prototype at the Turin Motorshow of 1963, the Mistral was a further development of the 3500 GT, it entered production in 1964. Bodies were designed by Frua and built by Maggiora in all aluminum.
Mechanically this Mistral is powered by a 4.0 liter inline six cylinder producing 255 horsepower at 5,500 rpm with Lucas mechanical fuel injection. Brake comes from four wheel discs.
Only 298 Mistrals were manufactured with 4.0 liter engines as opposed to 532 of the 3.7 liter models. This Mistral has been thoughtfully restored and has successfully completed several vintage road rallies/tours. It is a driver?s car with style, sophistication, performance, handling and comfort. This is an excellent example of the final and most developed of Maserati?s six cylinder GT cars. It is offered for well under the cost of restoration.
From WikipediaThe Maserati Mistral (Tipo 109), named after a cold northerly wind of southern France, was the successor to the iconic 3500 GT, it was also the first in a series of classic Maseratis to be given the name of a wind. It was offered both in Coupe and Spyder form. 830 coupes and 120 Spyders were built in total.
