1959 Maserati 3500 GT Spyder by Frua

This design, penned in 1958, was reportedly intended for Maserati to consider for the eventual production 3500 GT Spyder. While that contract would be awarded to Vignale, this unique automobile forecasts future Frua designs for the 5000 GT, and traces of the future production Maserati Sebring and Mexico can be seen in its profile view. One also has to wonder how many Ford designers had this car tacked up on their office wall, since the shape of the door “coves” is remarkably similar to the eventual Mustang! Few road-going custom Maseratis of its era had such far-reaching influence.
