1968 Maserati Mistral spyder
Click here to see photos of the car in the condition I found it, and during the restoration. Luckily the body was in excellent
VIN number AM109/SA1*691*

This is a very late serial number Mistral spyder with the 4.0 liter engine. According to the factory historian, this is one of only 37 Mistral spyders,
from the total of 120 built, with the larger 4.0 liter engine. The Mistral was built in December 1967, with the first owner being Sig. Rol of Torino,
Italy, the ex-works driver from 1946-1950. He drove a 4CLT and A6GCM. Apparently after his Maserati driving days were over he remained a loyal
customer as he also purchased several other Maserati cars.

When I purchased the car some prior owner had it painted a root beer color ... not exactly the most attractive color. In May, 2007 I started to restore
the car and return it to its original silver color. Photos of the restoration can be viewed by clicking on the link below. The Mistral retains its original
dry type Lucas fuel injection which has never given me a problems.

The Mistral is perhaps one of the most under-appreciated of all classic Maseratis. Build quality is excellent with many nice details. The body is
approximately 70% aluminum and 30% steel. This can be seen on the photos when the car was taken down to bare metal. The Mistral has a much
more modern driving feel than a 3500GT, yet retains its classic charm. The instrument panel is one of the most attractive of any Maserati. For me it
is one of the best Maserati GT built.
