1969, delivered new in Italy.
1976 - 2015, Skärholmen/S, (reg.: JHD 785). Repainted in red from the original blue.
01/11/2015, sold by Artcurial Motorcars Paris/F for 114.000 euros.
This 4,2 litre Mexico was delivered new in Italy in 1969. The
current owner was on a visit with the Swedish Maserati club in 1976 at Viale
Ciro Menotti Modena where the factory is, and in the service department was a
dark blue Mexico
that he took a fancy to. Signor Oscar Gnoli from Maserati informed our
collector that the car was indeed for sale and the car was duly bought on the
1st of October 1976. The car drove around 300 metres before it
stopped and had to be taken back for some minor work before it could be driven
straight back to Sweden
by the happy new owner.
He then used the car ten years before it had to be restored. The engine was
done, rust fixed, it was re-painted red from the original blue, re-trimmed in
the same colour and it had new petrol pumps fitted. In the 90s a new gearbox
was installed and it always went through a comprehensive service every year
before going to its annual trip to the International Maserati club meetings in Europe. Artcurial´s specialist Niklas Hannah used to be
driven as a 15 years old boy in the backseat of this car to Maserati club
events, he has been known this car from 1976 until today. A car that has been
loved and cherished all its life and now, 39 years after he bought it in Modena, our collector has
decided that it must find a new home, hopefully one that will appreciate it as
much as he has over the years.
