Maserati Khamsin

Dear All:

A quick picture of my latest project, a Maserati Khamsin, chassis AM.120.234. As it has only had one owner, the car is very original. Happy to provide additional pictures if needed.

Pascal, congrats! The car looks very nice! Although a very rare color.

Ciao!

Bravo Pascal: si tu mets des photos ne mets pas celles dont nous avons parle s'il te plait.

You should come to the Geneva show in it: only a week away now!

I found this one in my files... Nürburgring 1980. Is the Castrol box the oil reserve?

Additional Pictures

Sorry about the delay, I won't be able to get to the car until this week-end. The color is original (Verde Scurro). I just had the car repainted in that color as the bodywork was in relatively poor shape due to storage. The only work done on the engine was to redo the hydraulics and change the battery! I just drove it to Paris and back for the Retromobile with no problems whatsoever. The interior is black, although in a few places the leather seems to have some suspicious green undertone (although confirmed as black from the factory!) The wheels were resprayed as well. I will spend the rest of the winter/early spring going through some detail work around the engine and try to get it in good enough shape to show at the Maserati Concours in the UK. I will need to find two wrenches to complete the tool kit, otherwise everything else is there, from the original key fob (labelled Maserati Khamsin in gold lettering), to the spare wheel in its vinyl bag. It even has its MTC Cars registration plates with the old telephone numbers etc. I have been trying to find an original radio (a Blaupunkt Goslar) without success yet.

these are undervalued but VERY distinctive cars. i came soooooo close to owning one when one day several years ago i droped in to bobleiff's and there was a red total resto'd car. i tried to buy it on the spot. i was that cool!

sadly it was already sold.

i will keep looking.

Nice wheels !

That's what happens when Liberals are elected to run the Gov. BTW the car is being converted with Euro bumpers and marker lights.

One US model Khamsin just had its Euro bumper conversion in...Lebanon, finished last week!

Of the 155 US Khamsins (100 5 speed and 55 slush boxed) the number of cars still fitted with garbage truck bumpers a la Ralf nader is dwindling very quickly. I did mine and two other cars last year and quite a few have been done in the US and Europe in recent years.

One interesting car right now, albeit an automatic is an ex Japanese Khamsin at Chicag Classic cars: according to Ermanno Cozza the facory historian Japanese K's were fitted with the US sidelights but other than that it is a Euro car: AM120192.

two thirs of the K's delivered new in japan (30) were automatics: when you see their traffic jams you can understand why.

We look forward to more photos of this verde scuro beauty!
