    Maseratis are always the last to go up and the first to go down in these market cycles. So unless there's something really wrong with this car it's not a good sign for vintage GT Maseratis.

    The additional question being too, how the Owner can let his car leave for that price...

    That was the market here on that date. My guess is that he really needed or wanted to sell. Maybe it's an outlier.

    On another note, the one at RM sold for $245k plus commission.
    Looks like the one at Mecum was missing the airbox, shifter knob looking at the photos.
    I think it was the wrong venue for that car that day. Someone got a good deal even if it was a project.

    Agreed, seems like an outlier. Wrong venue, wrong buyers, etc. and the missing parts did not help. Was it a no reserve or reserve off sale gone wrong?

    Yes completely the wrong auction for that car which apparently was missing some bits. Perhaps it was sold after the owner's passing or he was in dire need of money. Not at all representative of the market...

    The typical seller now still dreams he is in 2014-15 and buyers are quite cautious and demanding but when a transaction actually closes the price is good certainly above where prices were BEFORE the peak of the market. All classic Masers were undervalued, sleepers and I certainly don't believe they will fall as they had after market peaks in previous decades.

    Marc, who knows where the market will go down ??

    20 years ago, I used to say (I had a DB6 Vantage), that Astons were the cars everybody dreamed about, but nobody bought.

    Just wondering if Mase is not today's Aston...

    Hello "Candide"

    What I see is much more demanding buyers, your Montreal I had a really good prospect for it but he wanted original color which is not the case. That is just one example among many.

    And if it'd been in the original colour there would have been another thing wrong !

    Maybe much more demanding buyers. But not on Ferraris or Aston.

    On Maseratis, many dreamers, fantasists or wheelers.

    Was it matching numbers?

    When you have the same numbers on the engine than the chassis number of your car. (----> indicates that you still have the original engine)

    matching colours : when you have both body and interior of the original colours.

    On the rear leaf springs there is a wedge shaped spacer that sits between the leaf spring and the rear axle, item 23 on the attached diagram. Can anyone tell us if the thicker end should be at the front of the axle or at the rear?

    My assumption from the drawing is that the thicker end should be at the front but apparently on the Indy drawing the opposite looks true!

    Any expert help would be much appreciated!!

    Just a follow up note, we have it on the very best authority that the thicker part is at the front
