Two Maserati A6’s were made in 1946 before the car was officially launched in 1947. The production run lasted until 1954 and numbers were very low for multiple reasons. Firstly, the building facilities of Maserati were quite limited at the time and each unit was hand-built. Secondly, the team just started investing resources in road cars. Finally, the quality and quantities of post-war fuel were not great, and the 6-cylinder, 1.5-liter engine was tuned to those standards, therefore only delivering an output of 65 hp compared to the 175 hp of the racing unit. However, the 1949 Maserati A6 was a much-appreciated simple, sharp, and raw vehicle, with a gorgeous body and elegantly simple interior.
Thanks to the simplicity of its engineering, the Maserati A6 was relatively easy to maintain and those available in today’s market are usually in very good shape. When considering a 1949 Maserati A6, it’s key to keep in mind what type of vehicle you are looking to drive. As one of the first Maserati road cars, the A6 is not a fast and powerful sports car compared to the next models that soon succeeded. However, it is still a Maserati with its beautiful design and charismatic characteristics. With so few A6’s made, it is crucial to use the help of a classic Maserati expert when looking to add one of those cars to your collection. A qualified specialist will be able to define the exact value of the car according to the ownership history, the condition of the body and mechanics and the paperwork. A model with an interesting story and a complete set of paperwork, such as authenticity certificates and maintenance reports, will be far more valuable and retain value down the road.
