First production Maserati subsequent to the now-famous 'Bird Cage' race cars. Approximately 2,000 cars were manufactured from 1959 through 1965, of which 125 were convertibles; the base price of this car was $5,300. The body is hand fabricated aluminum Super-Leggera by Touring. It is fitted with a five-speed transmission and a de-tuned 3.5-ltier engine from Race Works.

The car was stored in a barn for over a decade. That individual planned to restore it, but lost interest. The current owner purchased it in 1996. A detailed nut-and-bolt teardown and rebuilt of the entire car was accomplished.

The car is rarely shown; however it was awarded Best Maserati at the Meadowbrook Concours d'Elegance in 2005. The car is very comfortable to drive at 80 mph, but it drives like a garden tractor at speeds less than that. It is surprisingly fast, but not quick.
