The aesthetic of the Indy is considered by many to be sleek and elegant. Designed by Virginio Vairo at Vignale, this Indy is the 552th example produced (1,142 in total), and 1 of only 436 4.2 liter Indy’s ever made.
The chrome and stainless are all original and in overall good condition, with minimal imperfections. The badging on the front and rear emblems are presentable, but showing patina. The front bumper has a slight bend and would benefit from being repaired.
The Indy started right up, ran and idled smoothly, the transmission shifted into gear with ease, and the brakes felt solid. The venerable Maserati all-aluminum four overhead cam engine, as would be expected, sounded fantastic and pulled strong. The four Weber 42 DCNF carburetors are dialed in just right.
