In general, all cars of that era (biturbo, 224, 222, etc) are considered junk, and for good reasons.
Historically, Maserati went bankrupt because of those cars, they were a complete failure, so they hold no real historical value (didn't win any races or whatever). They were made because of a stupid idea that some idiot (Mr. Tomaso) had, to make cars that were supposed to "take over the US market". End result, the cars were junk from the factory, full of problems and what made Maserati's bad name of reliability.
Anyway, about the car you posted above, it has a lot of rust and needs a lot of work. Are you willing to spend so much money? If you are an engineer yourself, then you might be willing to work on the car on your free time, otherwise the money required to bring that car to good level is too much.
Also, finding parts for that car will be a problem, unless you buy ANOTHER biturbo of the same type and just strip it from the components that you need.
I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig, you get dirty; and besides, the pig likes it.
