1978 MASERATI MERAK SS

£69,950


Maserati followed-up its first mid-engined supercar the Bora with the similar Merak a year later, the body design being placed once more in the hands of Giugiaro who cleverly used the Boras overall shape. Launched in 1972, the Merak was intended to compete with Ferraris successful Dino 246 and used a stretched, 3.0-litre, 190bhp version of the four-cam V6 that had debuted in the Citroën SM. Citroën owned Maserati at that time, and the Merak made use of the SMs transmission, power-assisted disc braking and clutch. The later right-hand drive cars (such as our example) used the superb driver-oriented dashboard of the Bora. The unitary construction chassis and all-independent suspension remained basically as the V8-engined Boras, but being lighter the Meraks handling was superior. Unlike the Bora, the Merak offered the convenience of +2 seating in the rear and superior all-around vision thanks to its distinctive rear flying buttresses. Competition from Ferraris new Dino V8 prompted the introduction of a lighter and more powerful version in 1975 the Merak SS with a 220bhp engine, larger carburettors, higher compression ratio and revised interior. Widely recognised as one of the finest, if not the finest, of contemporary V6s, the Merak SS engine proved smooth, powerful and capable of delivering its thrust over a surprisingly wide range for such a high-performance engine. Like any true thoroughbred, the Merak possessed handling commensurate with its breathtaking acceleration and 150mph maximum speed. Performance and handling are the raison dêtre of a mid-engined sports car, and the Meraks astounding cornering power is a match for its straight-line punch, observed Motor magazine. Changes made to the SS suspension greatly improved ride comfort over that of the original Merak, while alterations to the instrumentation, switchgear, and interior, and other refinements addressed some of the criticisms levelled at the earlier version. The most successful Maserati of its day, the Merak ceased production in 1982 after 1,832 had been built, 626 of them being the SS version. Around a third of those were right-hand drive. A total of 117 Merak SS were imported into the UK of which less than half are believed to have survived. Our stunning Merak SS is the ultimate model of Merak to own, being a late RHD UK-delivered car with genuine low mileage, the more desirable Bora dashboard, and in fabulous condition. Such examples very rarely come to market, especially in this condition, so this represents a very special opportunity.
With only 6 owners since new, she presents beautifully and has enjoyed thousands spent at Mcgrath Maserati during the past 6 years ensuring she is amongst the best examples available.
A top end rebuild has also been carried out and she drives superbly with an encouragingly solid feel to the chassis/drivetrain unlike most poorly maintained cheap examples on the market that require a full restoration.
Supplied fully inspected, serviced with a 12-month warranty

1949 GMC STEPSIDE SERIES 100
1949 GMC Series 100 Half Ton pick up, powered by a 3.7 litre straight six engine which sounds superb, definitely no need for a V8 in this truck. It was restored in Ohio in 2011 and entered into the Concours d'Elegance of the 16th Annual Glenmoor Gathering of Significant Automobiles. Since it was restored it has only done 1400 miles so it remains in superb condition throughout. Imported by the last owner in 2013, so fully registered in the UK. A truly lovely looking truck which is approaching seventy years old. Superbly sat on old-school Firestone whitewall tyres.

1972 AUSTIN MINI 1275GT
The 1275 GT Clubman model was easily recognisable by its squarer frontal facelift, courtesy of stylist Roy Haynes. The Clubman was produced from 1969-1980 and over the years was powered by 998cc, 1098cc and 1275cc engines. The 1275 GT was the first Mini to be fitted with a rev counter. It’s easy to see the appeal of this car, as superb road-holding coupled with delightful responsive steering and a lively little motor all add to the feelgood factor.
This Mini definitely offers a brisk performance. Gear selection is super light and swift.
When the Clubman was new, it failed to convince enthusiasts and was discontinued after 11 years. Today, though, the underrated GT would make a desirable addition to any Mini fan’s garage.
SPEC INCLUDES Twin SU Carburettors, Maniflo Exhaust, Walnut Dashboard, 10 Inch Mini 100 Wheels, Pioneer CD Player, Wood Steering Wheel, Lucas Reversing Light.
Show Winning Condition Inside And Out.
Great Addition to anybody’s collection, these Mini 1275GT  are now rocketing in price and becoming very collectable !!
