Maserati indy 4200
The Maserati Indy was introduced to the general public at theTurin car show of 1968. Not one but two prototypes were on show. At the time Maserati underheld good relationships with both Ghia and Vignale. The Ghia stand showed the Maserati Sinum, a 2+2 designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro just before he started out for himself. The Vignale stand presented the Virginio Vario design. It would be his design that eventually became the production version of the Indy. Maserati was able to sell 1,104 Indy’s between 1969 and 1975, including 440 Indy 4200’s like this fine example. This Maserati Indy 4200 entered the Italian roads first on the 30th April 1971 in Bologna. It belonged to a successful lawyer. This was most definitely a man of style considering his choice in the wonderful colour combination, clearly a man with great taste. The car has been completely, body-off, restored and mechanically overhauled by experts. The car was rebuilt from scratch. The starting point was good as it was a matching numbers and coloured vehicle. The warm Italian climate and the caring attention of Maserati enthusiasts have helped preserve the car nicely. This Indy stands on 14 inch Borrani rims with correctly sized Michelin tyres. Despite the previous engine overhaul in 2016 the previous owner saw further opportunity to improve matters. Her engaged a Maserati specialist who totally took care of Indy’s mechanics. This extensive attention elevated this Indy from a fine to a top-class Indy. The fuel pumps were given new hoses and were recalibrated as were the overhauled carburettors, a new cooling system was fitted, a number of the transmission gaskets were replaced, new selector rods were fitted and the clutch cylinder rebuilt, the rear axle adjusted, the window mechanism replaced, the air-co system and heating totally replaced and re-pressurised, a number of other gaskets and relays were also replaced. Finally the engine was tuned. It is no wonder that all this work transformed a running Indy into a perfectly running Indy.
