1969 Maserati Ghibli

Classics  /   /  By Chad Tyson

Maserati’s Ghibli combines elegant aerodynamic styling and track-pounding performance  at quarter of what you’d pay for a Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona. The only compromise in the long, low, sloping bodylines is a slight hood bump, belying  the 4.7-liter V8, good for 330-hp.

This red 1969 shows how gorgeous these cars can be when properly cared for. Work done in the last five years includes new paint in the original color, replated wheels, redone brake system, new a/c components, rebuilt carbs and more. “The car runs excellent and has no smoke when starting hot or cold,” says to the seller.

The odometer shows just 14,455 miles, with interior condition to match. Slight wear on the outside of the driver’s seat piping and dirty carpet under the pedals are the only knocks against it shown by the photos. The easily damaged dash cover “is beautiful.” We think the XM radio is completely in harmony with the grand touring nature of the car, and appreciate that it was installed without cutting.

Just 1,149 Ghibli coupes were built during the 1967-73 production run. 28 sold on eBay Motors in the last five years, including only two within the past year. The best examples averaged over $106k. Click here to see this car’s auction listing.
