|101-1019||3500 GT LHD (VIN = 101-1018 and used double by Maserati!) Touring|
|Paint new:||Gold "Nocciola metallizzato"|
|Unknown, Switzerland (First Owner)|
|History:||This is the LHD car of the two cars with the same VIN. The other 101-1018 is a RHD car that was delivered new in 1961 to the UK. 2016 on mobile.de: Our European Maserati 3500 GT was built on September 1960 and was delivered new in Switzerland. Its lovely configuration is dark blue and a light grey interior and upholstery, although its dossier explains that the original set up was gold "Nocciola metallizzato" with a brown interior. This is a first series 3500 originally fitted with Weber 42 carburettors. The car was imported in France from Switzerland in 1972, by an enthusiast from Lyon, who started a comprehensive frame-off restoration. Unfortunately, he wasnot able to complete it and had to sell the car in 1991 to its current owner, a true Maserati enthusiast. He will complete the restoration by rebuilding the engine, the gearbox, the body, the front axle, the electrics and a brand new upholstery. A stainless steel exhaust line was installed as well. The paintwork was done about ten years ago. Its chromes are in good condition, and all its specific parts such as the interior equipment are where they should be, the toolbox is included as well. A full dossier of picture details each step of the restoration. Today, this Maserati is in very good overall condition and has been in the same hands for the last 25 years.|

|101-1120||3500 GT RHD Touring|
|Dealer:||Colin Fleetwood in Lancashire|
|Owner(s):||John Jackson, UK|
|London-based record producer, UK|
|Bobby McIntyre, Scotland|
|History:||2017-06-30: Sold at the Goodwood Festival of Speed sale: "Completed in October 1960 and delivered new to the UK, it is one of only 12 3500 GT Coupés built in right-hand drive configuration. The Maserati's early history is not known, though by 1980 it was in the private collection belonging to Bobby McIntyre. In 1988 the car was sold at auction described as 'requiring restoration'. The new owner commissioned renowned marque specialist Bill McGrath to carry out the rebuild, which had not been finished when the car was sold to the current vendor in 1993. Works already completed by then included restoration of the chassis, overhauling the engine, and re-trimming the interior. McGrath duly completed the restoration for the current owner, who has used the Maserati continuously since then for pleasure and classic rallying, enjoying success on the 'Scottish Malts', 'Rallye des Alpes', etc. The cylinder head was overhauled in 2008, while in 2013 a further bodywork restoration, repaint, and overhaul of the electrics was followed by a class win at the Maserati Centennial Concours. The sensible installation of up-rated road springs and anti-roll bar, together with EZ electric power steering, are the only notified deviations from factory specification. Accompanying documentation consists of sundry restoration invoices, MoT to June 2018, and a V5C Registration Certificate.".|
2016-04: It is in this Concours-winning condition that Chloe is offered for sale via Bill McGrath but also in a condition where it is on the button and ready for action. Included are the original front seats, which could be refitted if desired and come with the car.
2012-2014: Having driven over 50,000 miles in the car, many of them in competition, by 2012, Chloe was once again beginning to show its age and John took the plunge to have the bodywork restored again. This work, managed by McGrath, was undertaken by Prestige Restorations in Chertsey and included removing much of the aluminium outer skin in order to repair the results of electrolytic corrosion between the skin and steel-tubed Superleggera frame. This work was completed in time for Chloe to enter the 2014 Maserati Centennial Gathering event, where, even driving there and back, it won first in class in the Centennial Concours. And to say that this is a well-known Club car is an understatement as it has featured on the front cover of Trident magazine no less than three times. This car has been fastidiously maintained by McGrath and is one of the best in the world.
2002-2006: There followed various assaults on the Rallye Des Alpes, garnering a second and a fourth place between 2002 and 2006. Class wins were achieved on the Scottish Malts and the Three Castles Welsh trials and meantime Chloe continued to be used for touring rallys such as the Euroclassic, Maserati Club events and even the odd display on the club stand at the NEC Classic Car Show.
1999: An early victory was as overall winner in the 1999 Maserati International Rally at Goodwood.
McGrath Maserati continued to service and fettle the car and over the next few years introduced a few mild modifications to make the car more usable and competitive – uprated and lowered front springs, a thicker front anti roll bar, new brake discs from modern materials and an auxiliary cooling fan. The first series 3500GT front seats, which do not have fixed backrests, were taken out and replaced with the much more comfortable and secure ones from a series 2 car, trimmed to match the rest of the interior. And finally, John’s prized original Halda tripmeter was fitted, for he had plans for much more serious competition.
1997: The restored car, already affectionately named Chloe, after its original registration number, was completed in time to debut at the 1997 Silverstone Classic meeting and then immediately put into service on numerous events.
1988: It was bought by a London-based record producer who commissioned a restoration by McGrath Maserati. Sadly, half way through this restoration, the late 1980s recession struck and work was put on hold. It would be a full five years before the car would be finished, the project having been sold on to John Jackson from Sheffield.
During this restoration, the body was repaired and repainted, the interior re-trimmed with new leather and carpet throughout and the mechanical parts completely overhauled. The engine was fully rebuilt by Bill McGrath himself.
-1983: Between 1961 and 1983 little is known of the car until it was bought by Scottish collector Bobby McIntyre. By this time the car was in poor condition, with faded red paint and cracked interior leather. McIntyre kept his collection at his home Sorn Castle and on his death in 1988, the collection was sold from there by Sothebys auction.
1961-05: One of only forty 3500GT and GTI models sold new in the UK, this May 1961 car would have been imported by then concessionaire Colin Murray of Fleetwood in Lancashire. An original right hand drive car, with standard Coupe bodywork by Touring of Milan, chassis 1120 is a later series 1 car with three Weber carburettors, five-speed ZF gearbox and disc brakes to the front wheels. It also retains its original engine and is therefore matching numbers.

|Owner(s):||Gerard Swaen, NL|
|Micheal Jones, UK|
|Griffon Motor car company, USA|
|History:||2014: The car is back on the road with Dutch registration!|
2006-12: Gerard Swaen wrote a small story about his car:
Much of 101-1336 history remains a mystery. The earliest document in possession of the current owner is the official title of vehicle dated February 6 1989. The title states as official owner the Griffon Motor car company at Charlottesville, Virginia USA. Shortly after, the car was sold to Micheal Jones at Coleshill, West Midlands United kingdom and shipped to the UK. There it must have changed owner at least once. Serious restoration work was undertaken in the UK. The car was completely disassembled. The body was sandblasted. New floor panels were welded in and probably a cost estimate for the engine rebuild was requested and deemed too expensive. After engine rebuild quotes were received the owner at that time put the car up for sale and advertised it in Classic Car. No serious responses were received in the first three months and the next owner, Gerard Swaen from The Netherlands, got the impression that the car might be bought at a bargain. One visit and a few phone calls later Gerard was the new owner. This was in 1994. The first time Gerard saw the car, he thought the car was a lost case and abandoned the idea of buying it. Life was already challenging enough. However after some sleepless nights he thought this car would be a true challenge and worth putting in the effort. After all the looks of a 3500 GT had always been his favourite and it was clear that they would never come less expensive and more honest (already sandblasted) than this one. With already having second thoughts he bought the car and with the help of some friend he transported the car from the UK to the Netherlands. There the car was not better off than in the UK. Gerard first had to finish some other unfinished business. But although the 3500 GT was originally bought for future leisure time some hesitant steps were set on the unpredictable path of total body restoration. No dents or faults were found in the chassis. The aluminium body at some points rather resembled Swiss cheese than solid metal. Nearly all corrosion was the result of electrolytic corrosion caused by the 6 mm reinforcement steel wire that was used to make the aluminium body more rigorous. Inquiries about welding aluminium body parts were discouraging and most advises were to get a professional restoration firm to do the body work. That of course was no option. The car was bought as a hobby and to pay others to practice their hobby was no tempting prospect. Somebody told Gerard to convert his welding machine and just try if it would be possible to weld the aluminium body panels. The Swiss cheese would not get worse from a few welding attempts. He made some tests and to his surprise it was not so difficult at all to weld the aluminium body panels. He decided to remove all steels 6 mm reinforcement wire and replace them with 8 mm aluminium. This had the advantage that the body panels and the reinforcement wires could be welded together and that the problem of electrolytic corrosion would be by-passed. It turned out to be a lot of welding work to link the reinforcement wires and to repair the corrosion in the attached body panels, but it worked well. The body restoration took quite a while, but it turned out very well. Next the body was handed over to a paint professional were it stayed for about two years. The car was only worked on if there was nothing else to do. About in 2004 the body returned after a complete re-spray and Gerard is now re-assembling the car. Gerard is inding the car rebuild as very complicated, his only previous experience being Alfa Romeos. He finds spare parts to be extremely difficult to find and outrageously expensive. Luckily he has a good support group of professionals. He has found that nearly all parts of this 40+ car require complete overhaul with machining new parts or adapting threads. Quotes for overhaul of the engine were so outrages that it was much more intelligent to buy a recently overhauled engine and drive train in Germany, also because the engine that accompanied the car was not the Original for it. Now progress is very slow and troublesome. Gerard hopes his car will be worth the effort and eventually will prove a good and comfortable driving car.
1994: Gerard Swaen is the new owner.

In particular, Frua’s talented hands were responsible for some of the most audacious bodies for the “super Maserati”, the 5000 GT. Each 5000 GT was a unique, bespoke, tailored automobile, and it is only fitting that Frua’s unique designs on those chassis would inspire special creations for other Maseratis as well.
Smooth, sleek side panels, curved only by a sharp crease at the beltline, connect a stunning tail. The “of the moment” quad headlamps are set in an attractively custom-designed bezel, and a thin wraparound bumper accentuates an aggressive nose with a deep inset. Typical of Frua, who loved fine detail, the car is sprinkled with delicate chrome accents, including miniature Maserati tridents above the quarter windows. Later, circa 1963, Frua built two more cars to a similar design in the fuel-injected 3500 GTi series.
2014-05-15/16: Sold at RM/Sotheby's for $660,000.|
2014: Shown at the 2014 Greenwich Concours, where it was awarded 'Most Outstanding Maserati', in a field where Maserati was a featured marque. The consignor notes that the car has been “serviced religiously” and as such, it would be proper to continue on the show circuit and no doubt be a supreme pleasure to drive!
2011: After its restoration was complete, the 3500 GT Coupe Speciale was finally debuted, to much acclaim, at the 2011 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. It was acquired by a new owner a short time later, and while in his care, it has continued to be shown at concours and receive the best of care and service by Autosport Designs.
2007: John F. Bookout sold the car to another well-known marque enthusiast, Keith Duly, who is well known for the quality of his own restorations. Duly completed the car’s return-to-original condition, with the cosmetic work being performed by Chris Charlton, of Oxford, Maine, whose restorations have won Best of Show at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and the mechanical work being performed by Duly’s own shop. The work completed included a careful inventory of all of the car’s original components, with as many as possible being restored and reused to ensure authenticity. An earlier replacement engine installed in the car was found to be in poor condition, so it was replaced with a freshly rebuilt un-numbered 3500 GT unit, which is a swap that has occurred in many 3500 GTs of this era.
1996: Renowned Maserati collector John Bookout became the car’s next owner. Bookout extensively researched its history with his typical thoroughness, including contacting Adolfo Orsi and Frua historian Stefan Dierkes. Together, the men were able to conclusively confirm the car’s identity as chassis number AM101-1496 and Bookout embarked upon the restoration. Before work had been completed, he sold the car.
1993: Doug Speer sold the car to Jerry Wood.
1988: Frank Mandarano sold the car to Doug Speer.
1976 or 1977: Imported to the United States and by the mid-1970s, it was in the hands of a pair of enthusiasts in Chicago, although it was missing its original rear window and engine.
It passed into the hands of a Dr. Harms, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and then to Frank Mandarano, the well-known supplier of Maserati cars, parts and knowledge and the founder of the Concorso Italiano. Mandarano owned the unique Frua 3500 GT for several years before selling it in 1988.
1961-05: Frua completed the 3500 GT, delivering it to prominent Maserati dealer Martinelli & Sonvico, of Lugano, Switzerland. A month later, it was registered for the first time, as BE 999997, to Jacques Bordier in the city of Bern, Switzerland.
