Named after the cold northerly wind famous in South of France, the Maserati Mistral succeeded the iconic Maserati 3500 GT. The Mistral was the last Maserati to be fitted with the straight six-cylinder DOHC engine that made the Maserati 250F Grand Prix cars win so many titles. Early models were equipped with the 3.5-liter engine of their predecessor, soon upgraded to a 3.7-liter and a 4-liter unit. The engine was fitted with a Lucas fuel-injection system, which was a novelty when the car came out in 1963. Designed by Pietro Frua and built by Maggiora, some models featured all aluminum panels. A standard five-speed ZF transmission was featured, as well as four-wheel solid disc brakes.
If you are considering buying a Maserati Mistral, here are a couple of tips that The Beverly Hills Car Club team would be happy to share with you. Some vehicles have been modified and you want to make sure that a competent Maserati technician made any changes. For example, some owners have replaced the Lucas fuel-injection system with Weber carburetors, because of the difficulties they had to tune the system properly. The original setting was quite reliable however, and enhanced the car’s performance. Second, it is important to look into the ownership history. A car that was maintained properly and regularly driven will be more valuable. Those are only some of the pieces of advice that the experts of The Beverly Hills Car Club enjoy sharing with their clients and friends. Do not hesitate to give them a call and get more help from their Maserati specialists if you are unsure about certain steps of your classic car research and purchase experiences.
