    It does look very nicely done. I wonder how far they went with the stiffening, double floors etc.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but if someone cut the roof, it's not a restoration. Or is it?

    This isn't a marques specific concourse and then it would probably still win I know the guys (in green T shirts in the last picture) who did the restore and it would have been done absolutely correctly, and don't forget the factory did have conversion kits at one time, it was authentic and that's what the judges look for, there were 21 cars in concourse of the year 4 where Maserati's

    The factory never offered a conversion kit. My understanding is they took legal actions against those that were offering conversions, including Campana.

    There are real spyder and then there are fake spyders ... this is a fake spyder. Pretty it is ... real it is not.

    Thanks Ivan I stand corrected, I was aware there were kitbut assumed it was the factory.
    The car in question had a 5 year restoration the last year full time. the guys that have won at Motorclassica twice and there class at Pebble Beach. The result was something to see.

    Whilst speaking of cut cars I'm seeking information on a car for a local owner. He has no definite knowledge of when, where or whom created his.
    1967 AM115 174
