The Maserati Ghibli was introduced at the Turin Auto Show in 1966 as a replacement for the Mistral. Ghibli is an Arabian word referring to a hot, dry wind in the Sahara desert. First penned by a young Giorgetto Giugiaro while he was working for Carrozzeria Ghia, the motorcar was free of the safety restrictions that would plague automotive designers later in the 1970’s. The Ghibli’s shape was hailed as being ahead of its time with its firm, straight surfaces. Giugiaro’s intention was to showcase the large front mounted engine with its long, wedge-shaped front end which was highlighted by an integrated front bumper, pop-up headlamps and a slanted hood that lead to a curved roofline with a short tail. The design almost instantly earned praise from throughout the automotive industry, especially Car and Driver magazine who, in 1968, referred to it as a “gorgeous” design. The frame that held the Ghibli’s stunning appearance was a strengthened version of the Mexico and 3500 chassis, utilizing the same well-tuned suspension that had previously made Maserati a household name on race tracks across the globe. Power was derived from a 4.7 liter dual overhead cam V8 fed by four Weber DCNL carburetors that delivered over 300 horsepower. Dry sump lubrication further enhanced the V8’s performance and meant that the 4.7 liter was great for torque at lower revs verses the high revving V12 engines of Ferrari and Lamborghini at the time. Only 1,170 Ghiblis were produced from 1967 to 1973 as their excellent combination of quality and performance was reserved for only the most discerning customers. Factory options were available with only a handful of Ghiblis leaving Italy with the 3-speed Borg Warner automatic gearbox that allowed the auto to swing effortlessly through traffic. During the period of its production, the Ghibli was praised for its excellent combination of style and performance. Today, they are rarely seen except in some of the world’s most premier collections.
The 1967 Maserati Ghibli Coupe featured here is finished in stunning Argento Auteuil Silver with a gorgeous black leather interior. Daniel Schmitt acquired this magnificent motorcar from one of his personal friends who purchased it in Southern California nearly 30 years ago, drove it back to St. Louis and stored it in the garage since. After Daniel Schmitt acquired it, he commissioned a 2-year long, concours-level restoration that is documented with $100,000 in receipts. Accompanying this investment-grade 1967 Maserati Ghibli is its full Maserati classiche documents, owner’s manual, service records, factory tools, jack and more. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the very best 1967 Maserati Ghibli Coupe that can be found anywhere on the market today to the most demanding investor, collector or enthusiast who appreciates this great Italian marque. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle.

Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.
Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.

All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
