Maserati - Maserati Indy
The Maserati Indy, produced from 1969, with the new 4.2 litre V8 engine, was the replacement for the Maserati Sebring 2+2, which was the last of the 6 cylinder models. The bodywork chosen for the Indy was Vignales prototype, and the name Indy was in honour of Wilbur Shaws two Indy 500 victories with the (3 litre) Maserati 8CTF. By 1970 the Maserati V8 engine had been enlarged to 4.7 litres, offered as an additional option. By 1972 the V8 had been stretched to 4.9 litres, so the Indy 4900 was added to the 3 car range, but later on the 4.9 was the only Indy model listed. Maserati Indy production went on until 1975.
Maserati Indy tyre size was 205R15, but most cars were soon fitted with the 215/70VR15 size, which Blockley produces.
