Fabulous Maserati Ghibli in the lovely colour of Celeste Chiaro with Blue Leather. In need of attention.
We are pleased to offer a lovely 1972 Maserati Ghibli, that is a rare factory right hand drive car that has spent majority of its life in Australia. Interestingly the car is also fitted with the rare automatic transmission. The car is matching numbers and finished in its original colour scheme as confirmed by Maserati Classiche.
From Maserati Classiche "The Maserati Ghibli chassis #AM1152496 was originally produced with a 4.7 litre / Carburettors engine, Automatic gearbox, RHD version (It is not the last produced, but one of the last), external colour Celeste Chiario (Light Blue), Interior in Blue Leather. It was delivered to Maserati importer in UK. The vehicle was produced on March 1972."
The car is air-conditioned (and it blows cold air) and there is documentation on file noting the engine in the car is fitted with sprint camshafts.
The car was sold and first registered in the UK on 12th May 1972. Its third owner was a Mr Peter Boyd who purchased the car in late 1976. He emigrated to Australia in 1977 bringing the car with him and selling it soon after to a Mr John Petrie in Sydney. In Mr Petrie's ownership there is documentation on file noting the cars mileage as 44,000 genuine miles. Its next owner is understood to have been a Mr Luciano in Melbourne who had the car for a number of years before it was acquired by Terry Healy from Oldtimer Australia. Terry regularly used the car, and for some time as a daily driver before selling it in early 1998. At that time the odometer showed 62,000 miles.
The car was repatriated back to the UK from Australia in 2014 and has had very little use since. At the moment the car requires one of the cylinder head gaskets replacing and recommissioning for the road. It would also benefit from cosmetic paintwork to make the car perfect. A rock solid car with huge investment potential. The car has a thick history file with all the correct books and two tool rolls (one partially complete toolkit and the other with jack and wheel brace).
