Car Catcher: A Numbers-Matching Maserati Ghibli

Sponsored Content Presented by Fantasy Junction.

Although the concept shown at the 1966 Turin Motor Show was configured as two-seat coupe, the production Maserati Ghibli added two sparce rear seats, allowing the company to sell it as 2+2 grand tourer.

Power came from 4.7-liter V8 that sent more than 300 horsepower to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual or optional three-speed automatic transmission.

This 1970 Maserati Ghibli, equipped with the five-speed manual, is said to be a numbers-matching example that currently shows 59,500 kilometers (approximately 36,972 miles) on its odometer.

According to the seller, Ghibli has “benefited from recent and extensive mechanical service as well as selective cosmetic restoration.” This includes a restoration of the braking system, replacement of the distributor, rebuilding of the steering box, and re-chroming of the bumpers and front grille.

Also included in the sale is a Maserati Classiche Certificat, as well as factory documentation that includes build sheets, order sheets, delivery receipts, owner's manual and parts manual.

Find this 1970 Maserati Ghibli for sale through Fantasy Junction for $159,500.

I was offered one of these - a 4.9 engined car, but I did the sensible thing and waited until I had sold my Interceptor convertible before responding and of course it was gone by then.  They have relativel low RPM engines and somewhat agricultural chassis/suspensions but man, are they ever great looking!

Worked out alright for me as I stumbled across a Lamborghini Islero right after I had sold the Interceptor - much higher tech and output V12, more sophisticated chassis/suspension, and very rare in comparison to the Ghible (100 vs.1100 made), but the styling of the Ghibli was just a bit more alluring.
