Bella is virtually indistinguishable from the day she left the factory aside from a minor door ding or two. Engine compartment is crisp & clean, reflecting the long-term care by it’s fastidious owners, rather than the talent of the local detail shop. Original books and delivery material included. Gorgeous leather folio. Bella sports virtually new shoes and a blue bonnet. She features leak-free air conditioning, totally a-typical of an Italian car. Bright work is immaculate and scratch-free. The pesky headlight flasher, known to fail, has just been replaced. The interior is supple and soft, with no signs of aging or color deterioration. Bella has been carefully maintained under her present ownership with focus on detail and preservation. Not only has she undergone a major tune-up, suspension bushings have recently been replaced along with any other deferred maintenance items. She’s kept in climate controlled interior storage by her elderly persnickety owner. The series III Quattroporte may be the only collectible Maserati that hasn’t skyrocketed in price. Hagerty puts a Quattroporte in this condition at $27,200. Bella could be yours today for substantially less than that value, adding to her appeal as a collectible while being friendly to your wallet. Maserati revived the Quattroporte name at the 1977 Turin auto show with a radically new Quattroporte III. Unlike the Citroen-based Quattroporte II of the mid-1970s, the stately Quattroporte III sedan carried attractive bodywork by Giugiaro and Italdesign, had an absolutely opulent interior that featured loosely tucked leather throughout, and used a powerful motor to drive the car’s rear wheels.
