1958 Maserati 3500 GT

1:10 scale by Michele Conti, made in Italy

Completely scratch built one-of-a-kind model by one of the best of the

old guard of model makers.

About Michele Conti:

In the early 1950’s Conti gained his full scale training as an apprentice

at the well known body manufacturer, Stabilimenti Farina, which

employed craftsmen who created shapes principally by hand. His

father was also employed there as a specialist in assembling doors,

hoods, and trunks of cars. When Stabilimenti Farina closed their doors

in 1953, Michele along with his father was immediately hired by

Pininfarina. It was at this juncture, during his free time and evenings,

that he started what would eventually become his future full time

career of building custom, scale automobile models. Because of his

reputation, craftsmanship, and dedication to realism, many of the auto

manufacturers entrusted Michele with actual factory drawings from

which to build his creations.

His early models were made from wood, which then evolved into

aluminum, and then copper and brass. Ultimately, he used similar

materials to those used in the construction of the full scale cars, in

order to recreate the realism of the original cars. The bodywork was

shaped over a scale wooden body buck, the interiors were reproduced

in upholstery materials, including leather, and the tires were cast from

rubber from miniature molds he made of the originals. Over the years,

countless articles on Michele Conti and his miniatures have appeared

in automobile magazines around the world. He passed away in 1996.

On May 18, 2003 , Michele Conti’s achievements were formally

recognized at the 2003 Reading Ferrari Concours d’Elegance. His son,

the late Maurizio Conti was in attendance to posthumously accept the

‘Enzo Ferrari Hall Of Fame Award’ for his late father.

About the model:

This is the one and only Maserati 3500 GT he ever produced, it is 1 of

1, and was originally built for a Mr. Gradrero, the owner of the car.

Those combined factors along with its overall striking good looks

make this a most desirable model. The beautiful metallic paint finish

shows a little of its age as is expected with a piece over 50 years old,

but this piece truly wears its patina very well.  As with many Conti

models, this Maserati incorporates great detail along with working

features: Opening doors, hood and trunk - both the hood and trunk lid

have hinged prop rods. The spare tire which is mounted on a wire

wheel can be found by rolling back the leather floor covering over it.

Upon opening either door you will find a fully detailed interior with

carpeted floors, hand stitched leather seats and door panels, white head

liner and tinted sun-visors, and much more.

Price:  Please inquire.

The model comes mounted to its original wood base with engraved

plaque as shown. Also included is its build certificate, and a large

wood case for transport.

components behind each wheel. Peer into the cockpit and there you
