In the world of Maserati, the 1980s and 1990s were not a promising era — it was a time of low production, poor sales and some mediocre vehicles. Maserati didn’t move many cars in this era, and the ones that were sold often depreciated quickly and weren’t kept up well — but this particular example is surprisingly nice.
This is a 1990 Maserati 430 Convertible, and it’s a member of the Maserati Biturbo family. I say that because the Biturbo family included an enormous amount of vehicles with all sorts of different names, though they primarily had the same look and powertrain. Being a 1990 model, this one is in the latter part of the production run, which lasted through 1994.
As for this particular Maserati, it’s in nice shape. It’s a convertible model, which is uncommon, and it features an automatic transmission — likely not the enthusiast’s choice, but probably more common with the convertible top. This Maserati looks really nice both inside and out, which is no surprise given that it’s traveled just 24,000 miles from new — and further no surprise since the seller says it’s just a 2-owner car.
According to the Carfax report, this Maserati was sold new in California before being brought to the Northwest where it is now. It’s currently offered by a private seller in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and it’s listed for $18,000 — likely a reasonable sum if you’re an enthusiast of these cars, given how hard it is to find them in this condition.
