    I am considering selling my 1968 Mistral spyder, which I've owned for 12 years, at one of the Monterrey auctions. Before I sign contracts best to see if anyone in this group would be interested in a private sale.

    4.0 liter (one of 37), ZF 5-speed, matching numbers, Borrani wires, original dry type Lucas fuel injection, hard top, tools, manuals, fitted luggage. Documented ownership history and Maserati Classiche documentation. First owner was Maserati works driver Sig. Rol of Torino. Car has won awards at Amelia Island, Hilton Head, Keeneland, plus others.

    Contact me at ivan@thecarnut.com if seriously interested.

    How many Mistral prototypes were produced? I thought the prototypes had no side glass window frames just like the spiders and no side vents? Also the chassis was very unique.
    The one offered by RM was re-stamped and has window frames/vents.

    That car sat in storage outside of D.C. for 25+ years.

    The owner had ideas of restoring it, but obviously didn't. He became sick and passed away a little while before it sold, then it went to Amelia.

    hi chris,
    this is the hood insulation material, heat proof and padded.
    hood wiring goes inside the hood frame and exits in the front right corner.
    on the foto from alain you see the original heat shield.
    i am located in germany.
    kind regards

    Hi guys,
    I have been lurking in silence for quite some time now, but after a veeery long restoration (started in May 2013), it seems we finally are in the last stages.
    The car is now complete outside, the engine has been started in the car, and the carpets are going in as we speak. The car was shown at a local car show last year, mostly completed on the outside, and will be shown again at the same show in April, hopefully totally finished, so pressure is on..!

    To be honest, a restoration like this is like an emotional roller coaster, and I started out looking positive at things. The last few years have been a struggle, but I am so looking forward to driving my car for the first time.

    Hello Ursa Major...

    Car looks great !!! What is the exterior color and code (if available) ?
    In one of the pictures, I noted the luggage. Was the luggage original
    to the car?

    Hi Mike,
    The color is Celeste Chiaro Met., as original to the car.

    The luggage is not original, but suits the car nicely. It is a full set of Hartmann Luggage in light blue tweed with leather detailing. Period and looks the business.

    And thanks - we have been working on the car for five years, it is really satisfying to see it finally complete again.

    Alexander
