    Very nice!
    Always loved the Ghibli, neighbor had a brown one when I was growing up. Thing woke up the neighborhood when he took it out for a spin.

    Hi MIURAS,
    could you email me (wbaeumer1photo@aol.com) the history (incl. owner-chain, locations, periods etc.) for my Maserati archive? I have now about 1200 Ghiblis listed, most of them with detailed historical infos.

    Many thanks.

    Ciao!
    Walter

    Nice car. I assume with a Telaio of 2308 that your car is an automatic?

    I've posted a picture of my Ghibli SS. It was a special order with a few unique features. The original owner was to quote Maserati "a very good customer of Maserati's in those days."

    It is a Euro spec car first delivered to France.

    The biggest surprise is that I don't have better pictures.

    i love the foregoing pic of the ghibli parked next to the suburban...look how long and low the maser is! these are such fantastic cars and are so damn distinctive that pictures seldom depict the impact they have when seeing them in the flesh.

    i really need to reconsider my daytona hunt and save money and get a ghibli ss. what a sexy beast!

    i like the comment made about the neighbor waking up the neighborhood when cranking up the ghibli for a drive. i had similar results with my qp 3 and bora. both had custom exhaust work and were very, very known to make their pressence felt upon firing up!!!

    these cars have a real bark!!!!

    A Ghibli that is located here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Please sit down...














    ... it is powered by a Chevy V8. The current owner did not make that change.

    I will try and find the photo of a Ghibli that I ran across nearly 20 years ago. It bounced around my home town and ended up sitting abandoned outside of an old building beside the main highway. No fence. No shed. No roof over it. Nothing. First time I saw it the windshield was intact. Next time it had a nice hole in it. I believe that the cylinder head was off and laying inside the car or under the hood. The car WAS for sale but the greedy owner wanted $7500 at the time. That seemed excessive for a car that he didn't even care enough about to cover up with a piece of plastic. I don't know what ever happened to it.

    20 years ago was the start of the 80's run up in prices. Within 5 years that Ghibli was pushing 100k (finished). So the $7,500 wasn't out of line at the time.

    I think it is a great idea, the Ghibli being one of the most beautiful cars ever.
    It is very elegant and I cannot get tired of looking at the car.
    I am attaching pictures of my Ghibli SS, this being the second. I made a mistake of selling the first, but I am very happy with this one. Totally restored, and in very good shape, has the most beautiful sound.
    So here it goes

    The forelorn and forgotten! From 1986, here's the photo of the Ghibli that was rotting beside the highway in my home town. When I first saw it, the windshield was still intact. Who knows where it is today. It disappeared within a few months after I took the picture. Too bad that I didn't have the $7500 back then to save it. What can we deduce from the photo?

    It was a 4.9 liter version, the Ghibli SS.

    Poor car!

    "A dring for Joe!" What a nice idea! I have now far over 1000 Ghiblis in my registry.

    It was the prototype and the doors had a botton on top next to the window and some other significant features that were not adopted in the serie. The car is lost today!
