    Check http://1980maserati.com for extensive re-commissioning details by former owner/professional mechanic/shop owner and continuing improvements. Webpage also video links and links to background articles on the Quattroporte III.

    Original paint - presentable. Nothing hidden - some lower door corrosion that was stabilized internally.


    Clean title, valid registration, California smog certificate. Starts, runs and drives well. An impressive Italian classic.

    $14,500/or ?

    Bob I love this car. I've had 5 QPIIIs and they are just fantastic, comfortable, fast cars. GL with the sale I wish I had room for this big beauty!

    Thanks much for the encouragement with the sale. I got interested in the QP III more than 15 years ago and this particular car at least 10 years ago. I've enjoyed my year + with the car but need to focus on getting my Alfa restored - and we need a second car! I hope it goes to a true fan of the QP III. I'll take it to our local drive-in tonight and several upcoming car shows.

    The Barnfinds auction site is definitely "user friendly" - I did not have a struggle with a reserve price, which was the case with BAT. Tomorrow I'll mount a Marine Corps flag on the window and drive around to celebrate the 244th Marine Corps birthday. Photos soon!

    Thanks for the appreciative words!
    The online magazine Vintage Race Cars recently had an article and a video on the Quattroporte:
    "Presidential Limousine Italian Style" and an Italian Video.
    I've cut the asking price - funds will go to the restoration
    of our 1969 Alfa Romeo Spyder 1750, owned since 1984.
    The is the primary webpage with details on the car: http://1980maserati.com/
    Back to eBay??!!
