The Model: In the fall of 1965, Vignale showed a one-off body on the Maserati 5000 chassis. Adolfo Lopez Mateos fell in love and bought the car right off the stand it was displayed on. After seeing the response from others, Maserati decided to put this attractive coupe into production and named to honor their first customer who happened to be El Presidente de Mexico. In a stunning coincidence, at the 1966 Grand Prix of Mexico, John Surtees won race driving a Cooper Maserati. The Mexico was a departure from previous models from this car maker featuring comfortable and luxurious seating for four passengers with plenty of power from a proven engine first available in 1963. Perfect for touring, it was as though practical had met sporty, winning many sales with 480 copies produced during its three modelyear lifespan, Today the Mexico is one of most sought after models from this venerable marque.
The Car: Coming to America when it was just a teenager, this Mexico coupe has been lovingly maintained since new. It spent time in Miami, Florida and then traveled to Mexico City where it was featured in Automovil Magazine. Recently treated to a repaint in its original Rosso finish, it is accented by the Cinghiale leathers used for the interior décor which reflects a light patina of use while the dashboard features a full array of gauges in the beautiful woodwork of the dashboard. It also retains its original air-conditioning system, power windows and of course, a Becker’s Mexico radio. Benefiting from a recent mechanical recommissioning this classic Italian is ready to be toured. Since arriving in North America, this Mexico has been well maintained as evidenced by the extensive documentation that accompanies the car. A rare delight indeed and great investment it would be to own this vintage Maserati coupe.
