MASERATI BORA

A 1974 4.9 litre Bora in left hand drive US specification, this very original example is now for sale by its private owner. Itís not getting enough use he says. Indeed the odometer only shows 43,000 miles.

Unlike the later exports with the enormous rubber impact bumpers, these early cars were much closer to the European specification and could be completely Europeanised if desired. The current owner however, has chosen to maintain the carís amazing originality.

The original exterior colour of Verde Pino is rare these days, especially when combined with ivory leather and grey carpets and while there is definitely a patina to the interior and paintwork, the structure of the car is very healthy.

Maintained by us for many years since imported to the UK in 1990, the car is mechanically sorted, drives well and is Ďon the buttoní with current MOT etc. It has also been featured in Auto Italia magazine, fairing well when pitted against a De Tomaso Pantera and Ferrari 512BBi.

It is rare to find such a combination of usability and originality and is surely a shrewd investment for the future.

WARNING TO SELLERS

It has come to our attention that bogus buyers are contacting members via email, perporting to be interested in buying their cars.

These emails, mostly in broken English, offer to pay for the car without even seeing it. I understand that they often offer to send a cheque for a higher value than the car - say £30,000 for a £25,000 car. Thinking that they have sold their car, unsuspecting sellers are asked to send the bogus buyer a cheque for the difference which they can then cash within 3 or 4 days.

Unaware of what is going on, the seller will then find that the bogus buyer's cheque has bounced and this can often take up to three weeks or so one becomes aware. So the sellers are left without the car AND minus any monies forwarded to the buyer. There is also always the risk of a fake Banker's Draft which bounce.

Members may not be aware of this possible scam. It would be good to remind members that they should always insist on an electronic transfer of funds by BACS or CHAPS before parting with their beloved motors.
