This captivating example of Maserati's celebrated 3500 GT possesses a distinguished provenance, factory documentation, and uncommon originality. According to a copy of the original build sheet, dated February 17, 1962, chassis 2360 was specified with Touring Superleggera coachwork, handsomely finished in Grigio Albany (Albany Gray) paint with Marrone (brown) leather upholstery. This relatively late-production 3500 GT was originally equipped with a desirable Lucas fuel injection, four-wheel disc brakes, and a five-speed ZF gearbox.

Maserati Classiche records indicate the first owner as S.r.l Cisitilia Autocostruzioni which was under the direction of Carlo Dusio, son of the well-known Cisitalia principal and Porsche collaborator Piero Dusio. The 3500 GTi was dispatched on July 24, 1962, to dealer Autosalone Renzo Bordese of Torino, which in turn delivered the car to Cisitalia Autocostruzione. The Maserati is believed to have remained in Italy until at least 1973, as suggested by registration stickers affixed to the windshield and glove box. An invoice in the file states that it was imported in July 1975 by Bob Grossman's well-known Maserati dealership in Nyack, New York, and thereafter passed to Mr. Kogak of Skokie, Illinois.
Upon word that this 3500 was pulled out of long-term storage and it would be available for sale we jumped at the opportunity. We were completely struck by the car's remarkable preservation and fascinating provenance and found it worthy of the intense process to service and detail it as needed.

Maserati S.p.A. of Modena confirms with original Certificate of Origin that all chassis, engine and stamped body numbers are matching as it left the factory. Attesting to the cars originality Touring body number “419” was found stamped on the front hood and rear trunk bonnet during the detailing process. Additionally, all Maserati Classiche parchment records accompany this car, including: Internal factory Order, Historical Information Sheet, Technical Data Sheet, Technical & Aesthetic Characteristics, End of Line Data Sheet and Purchase Order.

A sight to behold for the Maserati aficionado and preservation purist, 2630 appears to retain original trim, lenses, glass, plaques, emblems, wheels, upholstery – both, cabin and luggage compartment, floor pans, undercoating, sheetmetal, equipment and large portions of its original paint. The engine, with its internal number (1385) corresponds to the factory records provided by Maserati Classiche and Fabio Colina's records. Sitting behind the wheel is like stepping back into time and a joy to experience what Carlo Dusio had the privilege to see and feel in such unspoiled condition.

Seeking to preserve the GTi's unique character, we recently undertook a thorough sympathetic freshening to all mechanical systems to return the Maserati to its former Grand Touring abilities. The entire braking, cooling and electrical systems were restored, with consideration to retaining as many of the vehicle's original components and finishes as possible, this also included the cabin's instruments, switches, along with internal and external lighting systems.

Understandably, all consumable items were replaced with new concours-correct items, such as the shock absorbers, suspension, steering and clutch components - along with numerous ancillary parts like fluids, filters, hoses, ignition components and correct Pirelli Cinturato CA67 tires. The original exhaust system, simply had to be replaced, and thanks to QuickSilver Exhausts of GB, the new stainless-steel unit will more than last another 56 years. The unique original tips were retained for future caretakers. Last and importantly, the 3500's Lucas fuel injection system was entrusted to Kinsler Fuel Injection of Troy, Michigan for a complete restoration and recalibration of the entire system - from the “black bomb” pump to the meticulously complicated unit itself – a nearly 6-month undertaking. In total over $20,000 was invested and over 240 hours of labor spent.

With no expenses spared and ready to tour, 2360 stands as a formative candidate for competitive preservation display at significant concours events across the globe. This 3500 GTi possesses the unique provenance of having originally been owned by by Carlo Dusio, who participated in the 1948 and 1952 Mille Miglia, and was of indispensable value to his father in the management of Cisitalia. This elegant Touring-bodied coupe would be an important addition to the collection of preservationists and connoisseurs of the Cisitalia marque, though it can also be enjoyed as an impressive, unrestored example of one of Maserati's most admired road cars. Note: Titled as a 1964.
Complete with untouched matching spare tire assembly, jack and emergency accessories. We proudly offer AM1012360 for worldwide purchase and delivery.
