1961 Maserati 3500 GT Coupe

The Maserati 3500 GT is a 2-door coupe made by Maserati of Italy, and was the company's first attempt at the Gran Turismo market and large-volume production.

The 3500 GT was available in either 2+2 coupe form or two-seat spyder configuration. Its engine was a 3.5-liter inline six; in 1961 the three twin-choke 42 DCOE Weber carburetors were replaced with a Lucas fuel injection system. This made it the first fuel-injected Italian production car and gave the horsepower rating a 15 horsepower bump, to 235. Maserati also upgraded to a five-speed transmission from the initial four-speed in 1961.

The most successful race car for Maserati was the 250F. Introduced in 1954 and with the likes of Sir Stirling Moss at the helm, the 250F established Maserati as a force in racing. Profiting from success in racing, Maserati introduced a detuned version of the 250F into the 3500. Touring did most of the bodies with Vignale doing some as well. When introduced in 1957 at the Geneva Auto Show, the new 3500 GT was an immediate hit. The design of the 3500 was about elegance, style, and speed.

This 3500 GT has won awards at shows around the country. It has the 5-speed gearbox, original Weber carburetors, Borrani wheels, and has gone through a complete nut and bolt restoration. The engine has been totally rebuilt. It is arguably one of the finest 3500 GT's in existence.
