Maseratis For Sale         

Indy America 4700




Having bought the car just over 10 years ago as you can see I had the bodywork restored which included new front and rear valances and new metal being let into the door bottoms.

Since then it has only seen summer use and is dry stored in my barn every winter. An unfortunate consequence of the body restoration was that the headlight regulator was damaged, hence the lights are permanently raised.

I didn't bother having the interior redone as I like the patina and sometimes you can over restore a car. There are no tears in the leather so an annual clean and cream does the job.

The tachometer needs calibrating but other than that all the gauges work though alas the air-conditioning doesn't.

The car is currently on UK plates but there is no other documented history with the car, the odometer reads 12,968km but it is probably 112,968km.

The engine runs well with good compression on all cylinders, even after its winter lay up as long as the battery is charged it starts second turn of the key, I don't push it on the first turn to allow the oil to circulate.

I've used it every year I've owned it and it's more economical that my Quattroporte III, the only problem is that it is too low for Polish roads.

As for reliability when I bought it after an oil and filter change I drove it from Bristol to Warsaw in a day, it is after all a grand tourer and it didn't miss a beat.

The car is just outside Warsaw, Poland but I'll deliver anywhere in Europe. It is an honest capable car, from which I'll deduct reasonable travel costs incurred in seeing the car.

If you want more pictures or mechanical details (compression figures, oil temp & pressure etc) please contact me on either 0048 602 368 355 or crook.neil@yahoo.com.

I'm asking Euro 45,000.


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.
