Purchased new by Peter Revson, professional Grand Prix driver, as his 'daily driver'. Pete was one of America's most talented drivers and a favorite at tracks all over the world before his life was cut short in a shunt.
Revson brought AM 101.1954 back to Modena in the summer of 1964 for a service. By the close of 1964, the car entered the care of Chris Amon, of New Zealand. The next owner was Walter Willmott, a fellow New Zealander and an employee of Team McLaren.
By 1967, the car had arrived stateside and resided in Wisconsin until about 2004. Owners during this period included Clarence Graham, Jackson Reiff, David Uihlein, and Don Faul, who began a twelve-year process or redoing and repairing as needed. The current owner acquired the car in the early 2000s. Finished in West Indies Blue (Maserati color code 20527 Blu Antile Savid) and an interior color of blue leather (Scuro Blu hides) over tufted wool carpeting. A new, factory correct headliner was installed by the current owner.
The car has been awarded the People's Choice Awards on several occasions and was recognized as the Best Maserati at the Palm Beach Cavallino Classic Sports Sunday, among other honors.
Power is from a 3485cc inline six-cylinder engine, three Weber 42 DCOE3 twin-choke sidedraft carburetors and offers 240 horsepower. There is a ZF five-speed manual transmission with disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear.
In 2012, this car was offered for sale at RM Auction's Monterey, CA sale. It was estimated to sell for $105,000 - $145,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $137,500, inclusive of buyer's premium.
