Cold wind: 1968 Maserati Mistral 4.0 by Frua

Mistral is a strong, cold, northwesterly wind that blows from southern France into the Gulf of Lion in the northern Mediterranean. And like the wind of the same name, this Maserati too can leave the observer rather “frozen”.

There is in fact a lot to do with this car, indeed, there is not a single component that does not need to be restored. We also have doubts about the completeness of the car: from a cursory glance there seem to be many missing parts and – let someone who restored a Ghibli from the same period tell you – no one will sell you cheap spare parts for this car.

However, there are some positive notes: first of all the car looks dry, and this is no small detail in an already expensive restoration per se, in addition the car is equipped with a set of beautiful borrani spoke rims (which have an enormous economic and aesthetic value) and finally, last but not least, it is the version with the 4.0-liter engine of which very few have been produced. Find it for sale at $65,000 here in Astoria, NY.
