Car Catcher: The First Production Car Made by Maserati

Sponsored article presented by Fantasy Junction.

 

Development for the A6 1500—said to be Maserati's first production car—originally started in 1941, but a little event called the Second World War pushed those plans back until it debuted in 1947 at the Geneva Salon International de l'Auto. The A6 was then produced from its debut up until around 1950, where it was eventually phased out with the A6G 2000.

This numbers-matching 1949 Maserati A6 1500 Coupe is reported to be one of 61 examples built. Power comes from a 1488cc inline-six engine said to be good for 65 horsepower and a top speed just north of 90 mph.

This example comes finished in dark red over a red and tan interior.

The listing also notes that this A6 is chassis No. 059, making it "the ninth car of just 61 cars in the series produced," and "the only Pinin Farina Berlinetta assembled at the factory on a long wheelbase chassis."
