The Ferrari Dino, which made its debut at the 1965 Paris Motor Show, was continually developed over the years. Following the introduction of the 206 GT production car in 1967, the Dino was given a larger displacement engine in 1969, resulting in the 246 GT. These coupes were then made in three series over the course of the model’s life, with the second of these, the M Series, remaining in production from late-1970 through 1971.
The M Series accounted for approximately 507 examples. They featured a rear track widened by 30 millimeters and the addition of seat-mounted headrests, an internal trunk-lid release, five-bolt wheel mountings, and many other minor modifications to the chassis, gearbox, and engine. The result was a car with better handling and overall performance. This 246 GT example is was assembled in May of 1971 and was equipped as a European left-hand drive example with instruments in kilometers. It was finished in white paint over a black and white interior. It was invoices on May 17th of 1971 and delivered to an owner living in Milan through the city’s official Ferrari dealer, Gastone Crepaldi S.A.S. It was imported to the United States during the mid-1970s and acquired by an owner based in Whittier, California by 1978. In 1981, it was purchased by a Mr. Gleiforts, of Newport Beach, California who sold it two years later to Robert Anderson of Rancho Santa Fe. In 1985, it was acquired by Terrance Peterson, of San Diego, California. The following year, the car was given a thorough restoration, including a comprehensive mechanical refurbishment and a cosmetic refinish in the color scheme of Nero (black) paint over a Nero leather interior with Bordeaux carpets.
Over the next 26 years, Mr. Peterson used the car sparingly. Currently, it still displays less than 33,450 kilometers (20,772 miles). during the last couple years, the car has been the subject of some additional restoration work, including a fresh repaint and re-chroming of some of the brightwork. The interior has been reupholstered in the Nero/Nero/Bordeaux livery. The brakes and suspension have been rebuilt. The car is equipped with covered headlamps, Cromodora wheels with a matching spare, power windows, and a Becker Mexico AM/FM pushbutton radio with cassette player and power antenna. It has its original headliner and sealed-seam sun visors. The dash panel has been reupholstered with correct mouse hair fabric.
It has spent the past two years in Palos Verdes, California and has been maintained by Fast Cars Ltd. of Redondo Beach and Ferrari of South Bay. Service records available upon request. The last invoice was for $7,700 USD in 2016.
