Chassis: 086
Featured is chassis '086', which was the first A6 1500 to receive the more powerful '3C' engine. It was first owned by a Signorina Isabella Quarantotti Ippolito who combined an interest in law, medicine and philosophy with a deep love for sports cars. In Italy she is best known for her plays and books. After many years of loyal service she sold her Maserati and it eventually ended up in the United States. Here the six cylinder engine was replaced by a Ford V8, supposedly because the owner was unable to adjust the valves.

Fortunately all the original mechanics were retained and the car was brought back to its former glory in the 1980s. After a successful journey past various prestigious historic car events like the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and the Monterey Historics the car was sold to Portugal. After waiting patiently for an opportunity to buy the car, the current owner eventually purchased his much desired Maserati in August 2005. He is seen here in action at the 2006 Cavallino Classic.
