In the year of Maserati Centennial it is quite mandatory to publish at least one Maserati per month.

This is the time of a 1964 Quattroporte (the seller put “1965” into the title nut then he says that it is a ’64 car) which need a lot of care and work to shine again. The good is that it’s a matching number car and, more than that, it looks old, tired but basically untouched: every bit seems to…

Again, this is a car never seen before. It’s Called P1900 and it’s a fiberglass car built by Volvo during 1956 and ’57, in no more than 70 units.

ScreenShot006

This was quite an experiment made by Volvo: the fiberglass body was commissioned to Glasspar when Assar Gabrielsson, founder of Volvo, saw the Corvette during a trip in the U.S.A., so he thought that Volvo too could build a beautiful roadster.
