1967 MASERATI SEBRING SERIES 2 COUPE BY VIGNALE – 66747 MILES ON THE CLOCK
This very glamorous Maserati Sebring Series 2 Coupe was delivered new by Alec Mildren Pty Ltd 970/980 Pacific Highway, Pymble, Sydney in December 1967. One of 248 made world wide, one of only 22 made by the factory in RHD , one of only 7 cars that came to Australia and actually the very last of the 7 cars to come to Australia. So considering these facts, quite a rare offering.
This example is a matching numbers car that has had major work completed by Mario Lombardi in Melbourne who is considered an expert on classic Italian cars. The engine has a complete rebuild, interior as good as new, a brand new ZF gearbox supplied to the owner from Maserati in Italy and of course the beautiful pale blue metallic “Celeste Ardenza” paintwork to complete the restoration. The current owner has chosen to change a couple of aspects of the rebuild, the original colour ex factory was silver “Argento Auteuil” with black Connolly leather interior and the vehicle had Borrani slotted steel wheels with hub caps.
The rebuild now presents the vehicle in beautiful pale blue metallic “Celeste Ardenza” paintwork with complimentary beige leather trim and wire wheels with Borrani knock offs. This car was featured at the 2014 Motorclassica Event in Melbourne, which featured the Maserati brand as it was their 100th anniversary. The quality of this car won it the major prize at that event.
Since the restoration, the Maserati has been fettled by Luigi Amori of Ital Service in Adelaide and keep in excellent running order.
A heritage certificate from Maserati S.p.A. dated the 2nd of September 2014 confirms the vehicle identity and original specifications ex factory.
Powered by a 3.7 Litre twin Cam 6 cylinder engine, it produced when new 206Kw and 373Nm of power and torque, delivered to the rear wheels via a 5 speed ZF manual gearbox. Capable in the late 60’s of 240kph, it was then considered to be a high performance car and is now a very classic and glamourous Italian sportscar. It would grace anyone’s collection.
