ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST SOUGHT AFTER COLLECTORS PIECES!!
Widely regarded as one of the best-handling cars of its era when it was first unveiled in 1968, the Ferrari Dino was a radical leap forward in road-car design. The Dino brand paid tribute to Enzo's beloved son, establishing a more accessible Ferrari that utilized small-displacement six- and eight-cylinder engines. To this day, the various road-going Dinos are considered among the most sought-after and revered automobiles created by this legendary Italian manufacturer.
The Dino 246 GT offered here was delivered new to the US through Luigi Chinetti Motors. Built in 1972, this E-Series Dino was originally finished in white over a dark red interior and equipped with US equipment, power windows and Cromodora wheels. Although the first owner remains unknown, the Dino is recorded to have been owned in the mid-1980s by Woodbury, Connecticut, resident Raymond Dobson.
In 2005, the Dino was purchased by an enthusiast based in Connecticut. He immediately commissioned a restoration of the aging Dino, enlisting the best restoration shops - each with their particular specialties - to give the car the attention it truly deserved. ENI Motorsports in Brookfield, Connecticut, was entrusted with the engine work; the body and paintwork were entrusted to renowned Ferrari Restorer Wayne Obry's Motion Products of Neenah, Wisconsin; and the interior was redone by Coachtrim in Danbury, Connecticut. Using the finest leather available, Coachtrim upholstered the seats in an inviting tobacco color with black inserts - a style used on some earlier Dino models as well as the Ferrari Daytona.
The Ferrari then went to Wayne Carini's well-known restoration shop, F40 Motorsports. Mr. Carini and his firm in Portland, Connecticut, are widely known for their program Chasing Classic Cars, in which Mr. Carini travels the classic car world to participate in events and shows in search of interesting vintage motorcars. In their care, the Dino's suspension was overhauled, including powder coating all components and replacing bushings and joints; the shock absorbers were rebuilt; the steering rack was replaced; and the Dino received the proper final assembly and sorting.
This Dino has been very well prepared and would be a great contender at concours events across the country, or a pleasure to take on exhilarating rallies such as the Copperstate 1000. Ferrari's first mid-engine sports car, the Dino is considered by many enthusiasts to be the most beautiful car in the world. A fine addition to any high quality sports car collection, this car will continue to appreciate and turn heads wherever you go.
