Valve job needed: 1961 Maserati 3500 GTi by Touring


Like many other 3500 GTi, also this car was born with a Lucas MFI but as soon as this began to be in trouble, the owner replaced it with a pack of Weber carburetors.


This one, however, had also other modifications: the seller says that this car was born black with white interiors (a very cool color combo) but sometime in the past it was completely rearranged: a pale blue (we believe that is the correct Maserati “Celeste Chiaro”) paint mated to navy blue interiors.


Apart from this change, which is not bad at all, the seller says that the car is not perfect both inside and outside: it seems a good driver which needs for sure some attentions, at the same time it means that you’re not forced to do a full restoration: maybe just check the engine because it needs a valve job, the seller says. Find it for sale here in Vancouver, WA, with bidding at $92,000 and reserve not met.
