Successor to the popular 3500 GT, the Mistral married the sophisticated styling of Giovanni Michelotti with the racing-inspired, twin-plug, straight-six engine. This Mistral is one of 828 Coupes built, the model representing the final development of the classic Maserati twin cam.
According to its Maserati Certificate of Origin on file, this Mistral Coupe was ordered on April 12, 1967, in Celeste Chiaro (Light Blue) with a blue interior and Borrani spoked wheels. Delivered on August 9 to a dealership in Milan, it featured special options including air-conditioning, luggage compartment tonneau cover, and power windows. The Mistral was first registered in Brescia, and it has remained in Italy almost all of its life, with periods of residence in Palermo, Torino, and Urago d’Oglio. The car was known and recognized by the Automobile Club d’Italia for many years and, in 2013, it was purchased by the current owner, a Swiss classic car connoisseur. It has remained in his prestigious collection ever since. Originally equipped with a four-liter engine, this Mistral was fitted at some time with the current 3.7-liter engine.
This Mistral is accompanied by a detailed file that includes its original Automotoclub Storico Italiano (ASI) card, shipping notice, Maserati Certificate of Origin, and original Italian registration paperwork listing every owner since new. Presented in its original colors, this consummate tourer remains in largely unrestored condition. It would however benefit from a sympathetic restoration to become the ultimate amico for open-road touring.
