The Maserati Mexico, the production version of which debuted at the 1966 Paris Motor Show, was built on the chassis of the four-door Quattroporte with a 3.5-inch shorter wheelbase. The Mexico still had four seats, and featured recirculating-ball power steering and disc brakes on all four wheels. Power came from Maserati’s fantastic 4.9 liter twin-cam V-8, giving the Mexico a top speed of over 150 miles per hour. It also had an elegant, understated body that was designed by Michelotti and built by Vignale, and it was luxuriously equipped with rich leather, power windows, wooden dashboard and air conditioning as standard. That combination of comfort, style and speed made the Mexico an eminently capable thoroughbred gran turismo.
This 1967 Maserati Mexico is a California survivor that is finished in black and has a red leather interior, alloy knock-off wheels, wood-rimmed steering wheel, air conditioning and an automatic transmission coupled to its 4.9-liter engine, one of only twenty-two 4.9 liter automatic transmission Mexicos. The engine has been rebuilt, and included is photo documentation of the work. The car runs and drives, but will need brake work and has minor signs of rust on the rear quarters and bottoms of the doors. Overall, it is a solid and complete car that would be a strong candidate for a relatively straightforward restoration to realize its potential as a fast, pretty and luxurious limited production Italian gran turismo.
