A rare survivor, this very original 31,370-mile-from-new 3500 GTi spent four decades in the care of a single California owner. The Amaranto Rame paint has taken on an added layer of character over the years, while the tan leather interior is clean and inviting.

Benefiting from all of the final production upgrades bestowed upon it within the last two years of production, this fuel-injected 3500 retains its original engine. It is reported that a recent drive by a Maserati specialist produced enthusiastic comments on the car’s performance and preservation. As with any unrestored motorcar, it is recommended that a degree of mechanical inspection is done prior to active use.

Unquestionably one of the best-looking models to leave the Maserati Works, 3500s continue to represent good value when compared with the contemporary offerings from Maranello. Whether purchased with an eye toward restoration or preservation, this Maserati will make an excellent addition to any garage.
