Matching numbers 3.5-litre Tipo 101 straight-six and five-speed manual gearbox
Desirable original features include its Borrani wheels and Voxon radio
Remanufactured water pump and Girling brake system
Following several years of competition success, Maserati turned their attention to road-going cars, setting their sights upon the burgeoning grand tourer market. Featuring Superlegerra coachwork by Touring of Milan and powered by a race-bred 3.5-litre DOHC straight-six, the 3500 was Maserati’s first foray into luxury GT production and it proved a big hit.
We’re excited to present this beautiful 1962 GTi, the ultimate evolution of the 3500 boasting Lucas fuel injection and a five-speed manual gearbox as standard. Presented in fantastic overall condition and retaining several desirable original features, this Maserati is fit to grace any collection. It benefits from a great deal of recent mechanical work, ensuring that it runs well and is ready to enjoy.

While the 3500 may have been Maserati’s first attempt at a GT car, they certainly didn’t make any mistakes when it came to the looks. Calling upon the services of Carrozzeria Touring was certainly a shrewd decision and this particular example looks particularly good in its factory original silver. Having undergone some restoration work in the past, it remains in very good overall condition, with no notable blemishes to speak of. The trim is really smart too, as are those gorgeous Borrani wheels.
On the inside, the vendor informs us that much of the upholstery is original. The seats are in very good order, as is the carpeting and headlining. The dashboard is free from damage and we understand all held within to be in good working order.
