MASERATI 3500 GTI - Year 1964
INT. CODE: RDS00100
In the mid-1950s, Omer Orsi, owner of Maserati, smelled the nascent luxury touring market that would be born with the economic boom.
He understood that Maserati had to invest in a totally new model in terms of layout, quantity and displacement.
The new car had to be of superior class and to combine the typical sportiness of the modenese brand with the needs of luxury and comfort, it had to allow long journeys at high speed on the motorway without tiring the driver and passengers. The cockpit therefore had to be comfortable and comfortable and road holding had to be safe and within reach of all types of customers, without necessarily being experienced drivers. The interior fittings and finishes had to be of high quality in order not to disappoint the most demanding customers.
The mechanics had to be reliable and durable as well as sporty. With these premises, the 3500 GT was born, internally signed Tipo 101, the first Maserati built on a large scale. In 1956 the chief designer of the House of the Trident, Giulio Alfieri, began to work on the engine that was derived from the 6-cylinder in-line twin-shaft of the 350S racing. In 1959, disc brakes on the front and limited slip differential were offered as options, accessories that became standard the following year. In the same year, the engine was redesigned to achieve 230 HP with new cooling water passages in the cylinder head, oversized main journals, new Weber 42 DCOE2 carburettors and Borgo pistons of different designs. In the second half of 1961 the Lucas indirect injection replaced the Weber carburettors increasing the power to 235 HP (the model thus became the Maserati 3500 GTi and 3500 GTi Spider) and a new 5-speed ZF gearbox was fitted as standard. The bodywork is updated, the slightly lowered roofline makes it appear longer; other minor changes concern the grille, the front and rear lights and other external parts such as the doors. Rear disc brakes and brake booster arrived in 1962.
This car is in perfect condition of bodywork, interior and mechanics. It shows no signs of rust.
