The Maserati 3500 came out in 1957 and was the successor to the Maserati A6, which was the first attempt of the brand to enter the production car market. Constantly developing their racing models, Maserati was quite successful on the track and used their expertise and knowledge in building their road cars. The Maserati 3500 was fitted with a detuned racing engine, which was an all-alloy, twin cam, six-cylinder unit, with a capacity of 3.5 liters and an output of 150 hp. Linked to a four-speed ZF gearbox, the car was smooth and a pleasure to drive. A five-speed gearbox was made optional in 1960 for more efficiency. With a suspension system featuring front coil springs, a live axle and rear leaf springs, the 1960 Maserati 3500 offered great handling and a balanced behavior in corners.
Penned by Touring for the 2+2 coupe and by Vignale for the convertible model, the 1960 Maserati 3500 wore a refined, elegant, and discreet body, which gave the model an understated appearance. The 3500 was Maserati’s first big production model in terms of numbers, but the fabrication process was still quite primitive at the time. Depending on customer’s special requests and the workers involved in the construction of a particular model, small or big differences can be found between models. A classic Maserati expert will be able to tell you everything you need to know about the classic you are looking at and can help you understand the history and condition of the car. In addition, you should carry out a pre-purchase inspection, which is highly recommended when purchasing such a special classic.
