1972 Maserati Ghibli

The Ghibli has long lived in the shadows of other, more well known Italian exotica, but for those in the know, these GTs offer a little bit of understated luxury to go along with the raw power of the quad cam V8 engine. Released in 1970, the Ghibli SS offered a slightly more powerful, 4.9 liter 350 bhp V8. This Ghibli SS is on offer in Ohio and was repainted from its original yellow color to the red it wears currently.

1972 Maserati Ghibli SS

1972 Maserati Ghibli 4.9 SS - rare 5spd Manual, USA car. Maserati Red over Black leather interior, Borrani wire wheels. Good documentation and service history is included with the car. Records show that the car was sold in 1978 by Miller Motorcars and the car was Yellow at the time. The 2nd owner had the car changed to the current red color. Otherwise the car is to our knowledge completely original - it is a matching numbers, actual mileage car. All service is up-to-date - it is fully sorted and needs nothing to go enjoy. This car includes a stack of maintenance records, the original owner's manual and wiring diagram, two sets of keys, the Maserati Classic kit including the original sales brochures, and original tool rool with a partially complete tool kit, jack, and spare tire on a Borrani wire wheel.

It's not surprising that the Ghibli SS is valued a little higher than the lesser engined Ghibli, typically $90,000 to $120,000 is about what you can expect to pay for a good example. This one seems to be a little bit overpriced, given it doesn't wear its original color and the leather seating looks a bit tired. I'd suspect somewhere closer to $100,000 might be a more realistic value.
