|1974 Maserati Bora - AM11749US 682
This is a unique opportunity to purchase a very nice Maserati Bora. The Bora was introduced in the early 1970's as a way
for Citroen, who had recently acquired Maserati, to showcase its technology on a world class exotic. The Bora was
Maserati's answer to the Ferrari Boxer and in many ways it is superior. While the Boxer is a serious performance car, the
Bora delivers performance and creature comforts at the same time ? plus it is powered by the 4.9 liter Maserati V8 known
for its reliability and flexibility to performance and around town driving.
The Bora has a mid-mounted V8 engine with for overhead cams and fed by four dual throat Weber carbureators. It uses a
ZF 5 speed transaxle (same as the Pantera) and the LHM Citroen braking system for superb stopping power. One of the
unique features of the Bora are the seats. They are extremely comfortable and well suited for long trips. The driver seat
does not move forward or backwards, it moves hydraulically up and down. Instead the pedal assembly is adjusted by the
touch of a button to fit the driver ?. just like in an airplane! The dash of the Bora is both very functional and always a topic
of conversation for its "airplane cockpit" look.. It has one of the most comprehensive set of gauges, dials, knobs and
switches of any land vehicle. Driving this Bora is a very unique and pleasant experience. The car feels solid and the
powerful V8 quicky glues you to the seat. Easy to drive around town and great on open roads ... and the exhaust makes
wonderful mechanical music.
This particular Bora was shipped new to Los Angeles, California. I purchased the car in LA in 1994 and it has spend the
rest of its life in the Atlanta area ... having never seen snow or salt. The car has never had any rust or accident damage.
Door, hood and rear latch gaps are excellent. .
The "rosso fuoco" (red fire) color is original to this car and car was repainted within the last year. The bone white leather
interior is original and in very good condition. .Cosmetically the car looks very good. Mechanically it is also in excellent
condition showing only 54K miles. The engine has plenty of power, does not smoke and is in well tune., engine serial
number matches the vehicle id. The hydraulic system just underwent servicing and is in excellent condition. All gauges
work (including the clock), the AC compressor is not working, glass is in very good condition, good tires, synchros are
smooth, new exhaust and new clutch. Includes factory jack with bag, spare tire with cover, rare tool kit and original owner's
