1970 was the last year of production for the successful Maserati Mistral model. By then, the car had undergone a few upgrades and was a great 2-seater, combining performance and gorgeous design. Penned by Pietro Frua, the body was delicate, modern, and curvy, while still in line with Maserati’s timeless elegance. The straight-six engine now had a capacity of 4 liters and an output of 255 hp, and was equipped with a perfected Lucas fuel injection system. With four-wheel solid disc brakes, an independent front suspension and a rear solid axle, the 1970 Maserati Mistral Spyder was a pleasure to drive. The production of the model ended in 1970 in favor of the V8 Maserati Mexico and Ghibli.
If you are considering purchasing a 1970 Maserati Mistral Spyder, you need to know the strengths and weaknesses of the model. Later units produced in 1970 were quite reliable and issues with the Lucas fuel-injection system of the first generations were fixed. Be sure to have the car thoroughly inspected for rust damage, on the door panels, hood and trunk lid especially, as the points of connection between steel and aluminum are more prone to rust.
