This perfect Maserati 3500 GT was delivered to its first owner, Commendatore Alfonso Morini, in 1962 in Bologna, Italy. Alfonso Morini is well reknown as race driver and founder of the legendary motorcycle brand Moto Morini.
This beautiful Carozzeria Touring vehicle is a desireable GTi version with all its desireable features of the later 3500 GTs, like front and rear disc brakes, 5 gear transmission and electric window openers.
Mr. Morini was clever enough to order the car with the very desireable carburetor configuration instead of the rather unreliable fuel injection system.
This very rare combination makes this Maserati 3500 GT(i) the most desireable possible configuration with all the features of GTis without its drawbacks, while staying 100% original to the factory specification.
The details of the configuration, Mr. Morinis order as well as the according correspondence between Mr. Morini and Maserati is well documented.
Even more desireable, this very unique model is fully matching numbers, meaning it is equipped with its original engine. And not only that. The "numero interno" has also been found in all the correct locations of the engine, meaning that all parts of the engine are original as well. The corresponding Maserati Classiche documentation comes with the car.
This extraordinary 3500 GT has been extensively restored for more than 100,000 Euro during the years 2015-2019 to the highest possible standards by well reknown brand and model specialist in Germany and France.
All mechanical components have been restored or replaced by original new parts.
Thus, this Maserati 3500 GT today is as much a legitimate concours d'elegance participant as it is a reliable daily ralley driving sports car.
