1964 Maserati Sebring GTIS

This Maserati Sebring GTIS for sale in Oregon was brought to our attention from our reader Sal and is a stunning, late chassis number example. These 2+2 coupes were derived from the 3500GT as a homage to the marque's win at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Designed by Vignale and built on a shortened wheelbase, this particular Sebring has the 3.5 liter inline six under the bonnet.

Year: 1964
Model: Sebring GTIS
Engine: 3.5 liter inline-6
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 23,581 mi
Price: Reserve auction

CLICK FOR DETAILS:1964 Maserati Sebring GTIS

After much consternation, I’ve decided to put my 1964 Sebring I up for sale. It is a very late one with a body number of 324 out total production of 355. The VIN is AM101.02099. It was originally delivered to St. Louis, Missouri on March 20, 1964. It has U.S. gauges with a speedometer in MPH. The speedometer reads 23,581 miles which may or may not be correct. I’ve put less than 1000 miles on it in the 6 years of my ownership and the previous owner put less than 100 miles in his 6 years of ownership.

When I purchased the Sebring all four floor pans had some rust in them. Evidently, water had collected on the floor pans in the past and had been left standing for a period of time. All the metal on the front and rear floors pans and inner rockers were replaced with heavier gauge sheet metal. The floor pans were beaded as per original for additional strength. All replaced metal surfaces were coated with POR-15 before being painted satin black.

The body was painted a single stage polyurethane red. Many pieces of chrome trim were re-plated. This is one of the few that had factory installed over-riders on both bumpers. The interior was essentially missing and needed to be acquired. Original seats and door panels were procured, but didn’t exactly fit (hand built cars, of course). A lot of fabrication and modification was required for a perfect fit. All surfaces were recovered in the original PAC 1544 Connolly off-white leather. The carpets were fitted with high quality black Rolls Royce Wilton wool. The headliner was replaced as were the dash covering, the transmission cover and the rear package shelf. The hood and trunk lid bottoms are covered in black diamond stitched material as are the saddle gas tank covers and the front trunk section. The trunk floor is also covered in black Wilton carpet.

The original Borrani RW3823 16x6” original wire wheels (all 5) were polished and fitted with a new set of 215x65 radial tires and tubes for good drivability. The engine is a 3500cc with Weber 42DCOE8 carburetors and the correct air filter. The radiator has been refurbished and the water pump has been recently rebuilt. The transmission is the original ZF S5-17 5 speed. It shifts nice and crisp. The rear end ratio is 3.77 The original front shocks have been restored and a new heavy duty sway bar and polyurethane bushings installed. The suspension and undercarriage are detailed. The water temp, oil pressure and ammeter gauges have been restored.

This is a very nice looking and driving Sebring. It still has a few issues that need addressing. This Sebring will be in Monterey, California from August 14-17 and will be shown at Concorso Italiano on the 16th. I also have a 1967 Mistral 4.0L with wire wheels for sale. Too many cars, too little time!

If you have an interest or need more information please call me at 541-261-1970 or email me at carnutz@juno.com. Buyer to arrange and pay for shipping costs.

A little under 600 Sebrings were produced over seven years. Currently they are bringing in the neighborhood of $60,000 to $100,000. This car has a reserve above $70,000, but is well presented, has a great history and has been well sorted with exception of a few minor issues. I would wager to guess somewhere in the neighborhood of $80,000 to $90,000 would be enough to seal the deal.

    This is a wonderful-looking, classic italian design that was hand-built by Vignale in the early 1960’s…it seems that these cars, for whatever the reason, are undervalued for what they are: Maserati racing heritage, over-built, hand-made,excellent performance —- what’s not to compare to Ferrari or Aston Martin of this era?
