1985 Maserati Quattroporte
1985 Maserati Quattroporte III.An original California car for parts or restoration. This QPIII has a clean title and currently rolls and steers. I don't see any major rust, which usually forms at the bottom of the doors and fenders/quarters. The car appears mostly complete. The distributor is missing, but the engine appears complete otherwise. I put a scope into a few cylinders and into the oil filler port and the internals look promising to me. The Weber 42 DCNF 95 carbs look very clean. The oil is clean on the dipstick. I have not attempted to turn the engine over and I would suggest putting mystery oil into the cylinders for a while before attempting. I don't think this car has been driven in over a decade since the last reported inspection was in 2005.

While this car is likely an engine donor considering the body and interior condition, I didn't have the heart to part it out. The car has an interesting ownership history, and unmolested and non-rusty examples are getting harder to find.The asking price on the car is about what I could get for the engine on a pallet, so you can consider the Giugiaro masterpiece body to be an oversized shipping crate! The engine in this car is probably one of the last hundred or so Maserati "Tipo 107" engines produced. The Tipo 107 engine was derived from the 450S race car's engine and was used in Maserati's supercars of the 60's and 70's.
Included with the car are an extra set of door panels and a jack kit.
