Description

You are looking at a Classic 1975 Maserati Merak that has been fully restored. This car needs nothing except for some small details to bring it to tip top condition. If you are looking for a car that can simply be tweaked to perfection, this is it. Mechanically it runs great. The air conditioning has been recently replaced. When the engine is started it produces a low guttural earth shaking rumble that makes it hard not to want to give it full throttle and speed out of the driveway. The brake system is the Citroen hydraulic system that has worked flawlessly for years. The main accumulator has recently been replaced and the brakes are extremely responsive. The steering is tight and has just been serviced as well.
The odometer is still in original Kilometers, not miles, so this car actually has only 25,674 original miles.
It was originally purchased in Italy. It is a European edition with the classic chrome bumpers; not the rubber bumpers put on the US models. All the parts in this car are original or genuine Maserati parts.
I am technically the 2rd owner of this car, with my father being the second owner. It was purchased in Milano Italy from the original owner in 1977. The car was bought in Italy and moved to Holland, the U.K., and then eventually imported to the United States in 1981.
From 2002-2008 it was restored with all the leather replaced on the dash, the seats, and door panels. All the components were removed from the car so that the whole body could be repainted without obstruction. The engine was meticulously rebuilt simply to make it run better, not because of any mechanical issues. The whole engine is original with new rings, bearings etc. The air conditioning works and blows cold. New stereo and speakers installed in 2012. Car comes with some spare parts and a copy of the original owners manual with engine specifications and many details necessary to tune and maintain car. Also comes with a detailed parts book to assist in finding original equipment parts.
The defects of this car are as follows. There are two small dents: 1. on passenger side on front fender 2. on passenger side rear fender. There is some damage to the under-panel that is purely cosmetic, but only noticeable if you are under the car. There are some electrical cosmetic issues that need to be fixed, but they are minor and easy and inexpensive to fix. The gas gauge is not functioning properly. Some cosmetic trim could be replaced.
I have many more photos if you would like more. Please feel free to contact me with questions or requests.
