Incredibly beautiful Maserati Ghibli 4.7 coupé.
Delivered new by ABC motors of Tacoma, WA, USA in 1967. This a rare first series Ghibli, chassis 128 built in November 1967. The car has spent most of its life in California and is in 1999 sold to the Netherlands and in 2013 it was sold to Italy. This very early example is recognizable to its double front brake calipers, double thermostat, Drop Down Tailgate, Smiths gauges, Marchal headlights, stainless steel trim on the dashboard and Borrani/Campagnolo wheels with central wheel lock. Performed in a ‘one-off’ colour combination ‘Avorio Santa Anita’ in combination with a beautiful ‘Pelle Nera’ interior. This colour was only available upon request. It seems to be that this is the only Ghibli ever made with this rare colour. This example is fully restored and technically overhauled in 2014-2015. Also the gearbox, suspension etc. are renewed/overhauled. This was a full bare metal restoration that was carried out here in Europe. Of course is this process well documented with more than 400 photos. The car is back into its original condition and is really fantastic! The car drives great and handles perfect! The body is rock solid, extremely straight and has a fantastic paint job. All the panel fittings are like they should be, perfect! The undercarriage is completely free of rust, rock solid and very original. The car still has her original so ‘’Matching Numbers’ engine. Of course certified by Maserati Classiche.
A First series Ghibli in an unbelievably rare color scheme and in a TOP restored condition! Unique!
Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where we currently have our second workshop and detailing shop.
Moving to Brummen
Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico's idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside.
During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings.
As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason we participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia.
A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both our genes and the identity of this family owned business.
