If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Redline Restorations is pleased to offer this turn-key and ready-to-go, 1961 Maserati Sebring Prototype. This is one of two Maserati Sebring Prototypes ever built and for any serious Maserati collector, the ONE to own!
Alfredo Vignale built this platform off his already successful Maserati 3500GT Spyder. This design was first introduced in prototype form at the Geneva Motor Show, the Salone dell'automobile di Torino, and the Paris Automobile Show. The ‘Sebring' name originated from Maserati's success at the Florida airfield track where, in 1957, Maserati took 1st and 2nd place at the famous 12 Hours of Sebring.
The Sebring was designed on a short wheelbase chassis, much like the 3500GT spyder at 2.5 meters long. It was designed as an occasional 2+2 with a simple rear bench seat, however, legroom in the rear is minimal. A 5-speed manual transmission and disc brakes came standard from the factory, while an automatic transmission was available by request. Power is delivered to the rear wheels from Maserati's flagship 3.5L inline 6-cylinder engine, which produced roughly 235hp.
This Maserati was acquired from a private collection in Belgium. The car has since received a full restoration including a bare metal respray, engine rebuild, and a re-upholstered interior by our team here at Redline Restorations in 2012. At the foundation of this car is a steel body with an aluminum bonnet and boot lid. This particular example reflects more styling cues from the Series II production series. The new design aspects include horizontally mounted tail lights, squared-off bumpers, and redesigned headlights. The side grilles are the same design as the Series I.
This vehicle is an absolute staple for any serious Maserati collector, and virtually instant entry into any Concours venue or rally!
