Known History

This car was bought new by Theo Regout, the great adventurer who made films of his travels, which he then screened in the style of the old " Connaissance du monde " movies. His memorable voyages included trips across the Sahara and South America in a Ford A. He bought this Maserati 3500 GT at the age of 60 and kept it for 15 years. He stopped driving it in the mid-1970s, when it had covered 15 000 km. The car was then stored in a garage, where it was spotted by the Dutch collector Rob van Slijpe. It was from the latter's wife that the current owner acquired the car in 1994. He has used it occasionally and the mileage today is a modest 60 240 km. Having had so few owners, this coupé 3500 GT is presented in lovely original condition, and has not been restored. The car retains the original engine and a five-speed ZF gearbox. The beautiful red leather upholstery is also original and displays a lovely patina. Under the bonnet, the excellent twin-cam, twin-ignition, straight-six engine looks clean, with no sign of leaks. This is an interesting first series version, with round indicators, and carburettors. Fabio Collina from Maserati Classiche confirmed that the car was delivered new in Holland and is in its original Grigio Argento Luna livery.

The car comes with its period toolkit and a file of invoices and interesting period documents dating back to the first owner. Offering the charm of originality, this Maserati 3500 GT also boasts a superb design, a splendid engine, a high-quality finish and a top-of-the-range GT personality reflecting a carefree era.
