1962 Maserati 3500 Vignale Spyder: Matching Numbers, 1 of 242 This 1962 Maserati 3500 Vignale Spyder is a matching numbers example and a great driver quality car. Red with tan leather interior. Never restored and one of just 242 Vignale Spyders ever produced. Factory records note that chassis number 1337 was built on October 20, 1961. It is equipped with power windows, front disc brakes, and Weber carburetors. A January 3, 2000, receipt indicates an engine rebuild at 52,626 kilometers by Deutschland Automotive, of Tucker, Georgia, at which time the engine was removed and disassembled and thoroughly gone over. Less than 2,000 kilometers and eight years later, at 54,588 kilometers, a new clutch was installed. This Maserati is complemented by a set of 16-inch Borrani wire wheels. The paint, exterior, and chrome all present nicely. This is a lovely example of one of the most sporting of early 1960s Maseratis and is a blue chip investment offered at a bargain price.

1957 Maserati 3500GT Frua Spyder Chassis Number: AM101.268 One-Off Frua body! 220bhp 3,485cc carbureted dual overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder engine, five-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live axle rear suspension with semi-elliptical leaf springs, hydraulically actuated front disc, rear drum brakes. Wheelbase 2,600mm (102.3"). The 3500 GT debuted at the Geneva show in March 1957 and it would be the first real series-produced Maserati, remaining in production through several generations and model names until 1970. Its twin-plug ignition immediately betrayed the racing origin of this high performance six although it was completely redesigned, in fact twice, to make it both more easily maintainable by non-racing mechanics and more economical to build. The dual overhead camshafts operated the valves through bucket followers with shim adjustment in preference to the screw-type adjustment favored on the racing engines. Both the cylinder block and the head were cast in light alloy with iron cylinder sleeves. Seven main bearings ensured reliability. This 1957 Maserati Frua Spider was purchased by Mr. Alfredo Brener’s collection of exceptional

1960 Maserati 3500GT Vignale Spyder Chassis Number: 101505 Prototype! In 1959, the first 3500 Spyder made its debut at the Turin Auto Show. In 1960, Carrozziera Vignale introduced a 3500 spyder on a shortened chassis, a design strongly influenced by the Coupé of Touring. This extremely rare and beautiful example had an extensive restoration at great expense. The Vignale spyder is very attractive when viewed from the front, with its massive front grill and the interior dash facia is simple but very elegant. The Maserati Vignale spyder competed when new with the Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina spyder. While Ferrari was focused on performance, Maserati was more focused on creating a refined GT car. One that delivered performance while providing the creature comforts and luxury details needed when cruising the French Riviera.
