First post so only polite to introduce myself.
I've been aroung Italian cars most of my life and they are the only type of cars I drive these days. I am also the Chairman of the Northern Ireland Italian Motor club for my sins. I have to confess to never having owned a Maserati though.
I have a small collection that I have been fortunate enought to gather up over the years through carrying out most of the restoration work on them myself, and have a little web site dedicated to them.

For a while now I have been considering a 3200GT but know virtually nothing about them good or bad, which has led me here. (Hopefully that's the start of the good things).
So at the moment I'm at a do I or don't I stage because if I'm to take the plunge I will have to sell one of the cars I love, A Lancia integrale Works Martini replica.
To help me make a decission, I'm hoping forum owners can help me with a little guidence of what I need to watch out for with these cars.
As I can do most work myself and have a friend who is a specialist on Ferrari, Rolls, porsche etc, I'm going for the lower end of the price scale and want an 2000/01 because I don't mind getting my hands dirty.

So that's me. Stick with the Lancia or take the plunge and own my first Maserati.

All help would be appreciated.

Ta, Stuart

Hi Stuart,

welcome to ML :)

The 3200 GT is a great car. I believe one of the British mags published a buying guide on it a while ago. One of the things to watch out for is the throttle body, which tends to go (apparently due to over heating).

Or you can send an email to the ever resourceful Enrico (member of the British Maserati Club) who can help you direct your query (we don't have a lot of 3200 GT owners on ML):

Hello BigFoot. A friend Abu Dabi actually sent me the report from the mag yesterday as he's been thinking of one as well it turns out. I haven't had time to read it but hope to do so tonight.
Also had a good chat with a Fiat mechanic who runs a Gibli so he was quite helpful to.
I'll get in touch with Enrico (thank you for that) and see were it leads me.

Stuart.
