1959 Maserati 3500 GT Coup with Matching Numbers and Maserati Classiche Documentation
This beautiful Maserati 3500 Coupe is a desirable early example with front disc brakes and carbureted power plant. Originally ordered from Officine Alfieri Maserati on June 2, 1959 and delivered new on July 21, 1959 as a direct sale to customer Dr. Arnaldo Cadini of Prato, Italy. Elegantly finished in (white) over Blue Connoly leather with Borrani Disc wheels, spare disc wheel. The 3500 later made its way to Seattle, Washington, in the thoughtful care of a Mr. Quinnell for 30 years. Presented in its original unrestored form, is a truly exceptional preservation of one of Maseratis most celebrated GTs ever produced.
The Certificate of Origin on file confirms that all chassis, engine and body numbers are matching as it left the factory. Additionally, all Maserati Classiche parchment records accompany this car, including: Internal factory Order, Historical Information Sheet, Technical Data Sheet, Technical & Aesthetic Characteristics, End of Line Data Sheet and Delivery Note. A sight to behold for the Maserati aficionado and preservation purist, it retains all original trim, lenses, glass, plaques, emblems, upholstery both, cabin and luggage compartment, floor pans, undercoating, sheet metal, equipment and large portions of its original paint. Sitting behind the wheel is like stepping back into time and a joy to experience what Dr. Arnaldo Cadini had the privilege to see and feel in such unspoiled condition.
Thanks to the considerate 30 years of stewardship from Mr. Quinnell and previous caretakers, this 3500 was kept pure, unrestored and today would make a formative candidate for competitive preservation display at significant concours events across the globe. After years of recent garage slumber, this stunning 3500 is the ideal example to lightly service and enjoy in the summer!
