2011, sold via Chequered Flag /USA :

Chequered Flag International is pleased to offer this 1972 Maserati Mexico by Vignale in Burgundy with Tan leather. US model, 4.7, 5 speed with power steering, power windows and A-C. 105 KMS (65,000 miles), low ownership Western State car with no rust. Very good body with excellent paint with the exception of a couple of tiny scratches on the left front fender, etc. Some bubbling on the corners of the trunk lid - shown. Runs and drives excedingly well, great power - no smoke, not noisy, good trans and synchros. Clutch, brakes and steering are all good. Just had gas tanks cleaned, carbs rebuilt, etc at a cost of $4,800 ( see bill ) after a 9 year dry storage. Power windows work well. Very good original interior - seats showing a little patina which I like - your average used car dealer would be tempted to redye to the front seats - I'd prefer not to. No tools or handbook. Only 480 cars built during the entire production run of 7 years from 1966 to 1973, of those only 175 were built with the more powerfull 4.7 litre engine. If you subtract all the automatics and cars built without power steering ( another option ) you'll probably find that less than 100 were built and probably less than half were U.S bound. These really have great performance due the the V8 powertrain with a top speed of 159 MPH. This is an excellent example of what used to be an overlooked marque and model - now they're popping up on the radar and many are a little too far gone to viably resusitate. This one is one of the few that's been respected all along. Drive it or collect it - you can't go wrong. Inspections encouraged. All sales AS-IS. Sales tax and lic fees due if delivered in California.
