    These cars don't see to have turning signal lamps in their front fenders.
    Could this picture be made before the summer of 1959?

    Corrado,
    ...and while other discuss a useless Maserati-forum on yahoo and floor mats, can you let me know if you have any VIN of some of the cars shown in this fantastic photo?

    Ciao!

    Andrea, to be more precise:
    This is in Lausanne-Ouchy, at the lake, picture taken from the Beau-Rivage Palace Hotel. I know that because I've been evaluating this hotel lately for an event to take place in 2013.

    Continue the good work, Andrea, and see you soon.

    I just noticed that this car has a circle near the side vent?
    I have never seen this before. Can anyone tell me what it was used for?
    chassis #101.202

    Those are side vents for cabin air. I have seen them on a few early cars; 1958 and 1959.

    There is also the cowl air vent design, which is also rare, but seem to be more common than the side vent.

    Ciao and best.

    Olivier, You mean this kind of vent?
    This is on my car 101-442 , it is also mentioned on the build sheet, so it is an original option I suppose.

    Here is a photo of the cowl vents.




    And a factory photo with the side vents and the rare {today} Stelvio tires. An early car with out the vent windows, completely red Maserati Trident {yes it's correct}, no hood scoop chrome, or mirrors, or side markers {pre1959}.

    I believe the photo is dated 1958.

    The car has done 2000 km in 2012. Ups and downs with brakes gearbox and ignition. Seems to be pretty solved now. It is winter over here so 101-442 is stored high and dry.

    The side vents are meant to bring fresh (cold) aire into the cabin. Funny detail is that the first side vents were situated that low that the warm engine air was forced into the cabin through these side vents causing even more heat in the cabin. Later the side vents were placed a little higher (like on 101-442). The cowl vents seem to be the best solution to gain fresh air IMHO.

    Say nobody Maserati cars were not reliable.

    This car, chassis #1764, made no less than incredible 680,000 km with its first owner, industrialist Gino Secchi in the early 1970s.
    He used the car on his daily trips from Milan to Turino.

    And, most surprising, the car still exists and was sold in 2004 to its current owner in Italy.

    I noticed that the turn signal on the white lady are actual cut into the fender with recess triangular reflective metal with the bulb mounted inside. The firs like that I have ever seen.
    Pretty cool.

    Here is a late 60's picture of a dark green Maserati 3500 GT, which was owned by Mr. Leroy Cohen in Richmond, VA during that time. He bought the car used from Moore’s Motor Company.
    Mr Cohen died in 1970 and the car was bought by a doctor that lived in Virginia.
    Does anybody have some info of what happened to this car?
