Mark- Make sure and get a compression and bleed down check on any 456 you consider. Rarely a problem, but dropping 5 figures for new valve guides will not cheer you up.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Can you please tell me what to specially check on them (Ive read about the self levelling suspension, the silentblocks on the suspension components and belts and oils changed on date).
My word, Goliat, I believed I had answered your post; apparently not. The color is blu chiaro/beige. And the engine is the last iteration of the 60 degree Colombo V-12 whose cams are chain-driven, not belt, thus eliminating the periodic belt changes required on the 456/550/575.

Sorry, I was confused with the colour name (Maserati has a practically identical color called Blue Sebring).


Great to know it has chain driven timing, something I personally prefer over a belt driven one.


Im still waiting for the correct unit to appear. The Nurburgring silver one was a bit too used and the one that was exactly like yours didn't have a service record and missed the maintenance book, so was discarded also.


Now Im seeking for the correct one again. Its a matter of time.

Live as if youre going to die tomorrow, dream as if youre going to live forever.

Seth- To make up for the lack of belts, change recommendation for the single chain is 25,000 miles, no time period, luckily.
