The 3500GT

Introduced at the Geneva auto show in 1957, the Maserati 3500 GT was produced through 1964. More than 2,200 of these sleek 2+2 pillarless coupes were built, each one a tribute to the racing heritage of one of Italy's most storied car builders. The 3500 GT's alloy body was styled by Carrozzeria Touring and utilized the firm's famous Superleggera lightweight construction techniques.

A derivative of the engine designed for the world championship-winning Maserati Tipo 250F Formula 1 racer, the 3500 GT's 3.5-Liter DOHC six-cylinder engine produced 220bhp in carbureted form. The 1961-1964 production was equipped with a ZF five-speed manual transmission, replacing the 4-speed used earlier. The GTi designation arrived in 1962—the "i" signifying Lucas-sourced fuel injection, introduced that year, that bump power to 235bhp. Built initially with drum brakes and a four-speed gearbox, the 3500GT was gradually improved, gaining five speeds, front disc brakes and, finally, all-disc braking. By the time the 3500GT was discontinued in 1964, around 2,200 of all types had been made.

The Motorcar Offered

A rare survivor, this very original 31,370-mile-from-new 3500GTi 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. Benefitting from all of the final production upgrades bestowed upon it within the last two years of production, this 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.
