1970 Fiat Other

1970 Fiat Dino 2400GT Bertone Coupe with the 4 cam Ferrari V6 engine. The car runs very well and was tuned on a dynamometer a year ago. I took the car to the Ferrari Club of America's National meet at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI in 2013.

This car has the 2.4 L Dino V6 fed by three Weber carbs. The rear seat has been recovered because the sun shining through the rear window had made the fabric brittle. The car has the correct Chromodora wheels including the spare but the tires are getting older now. The trunk also has the original toolkit and jack. All of the control on the dash are in working order as are the lights and windows.

I have the original bumpers and brackets and they come with the car along with some other spare parts.

There are a couple blemishes in the paint but it is in overall very good condition. The latch for the glovebox is missing so a bungie cord is currently holding it shut.

The Dino road cars came to be because of Enzo Ferrari's need to homologate a V6 engine for Formula 2 racing cars. In 1965 the Commission Sportive Internationale de la FIA had drawn up new rules, to be enacted for the 1967 season. F2 engines were required to have no more than six cylinders, and to be derived from a production engine, from a road car homologated in the GT class and produced in at least 500 examples within 12 months. Since a small manufacturer like Ferrari did not possess the production capacity to reach such quotas, an agreement was signed with Fiat and made public on 1 March 1965: Fiat would produce the 500 engines needed for the homologation, to be installed in a GT car.
