THE FERRARI DINO

A major commercial success for Ferrari in the 1970s, the Dino line arose from the need to homologate a V6 engine for Maranello's new Formula 2 race car. The first of the line, the Dino 206 GT, debuted at the Turin Motor Show in 1967, featuring an all-aluminum, 2-liter, four-cam V6 mounted transversely behind the passenger compartment, and driving the rear wheels through a five-speed transaxle. The coupe's stunningly beautiful lines were by Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti, with production of the coachwork assigned to Scaglietti, Ferrari's carrozzeria of choice.

After just 152 examples had been built, the 206 was succeeded by the 246 GT. Launched at the Turin show in November 1969, this new model was visually similar to its predecessor, though it contained a number of significant changes, the most important were its more powerful 2,419cc, iron-block V6 engine and its use of steel, rather than aluminum, for the body. The wheelbase was also increased, by a mere 2.4 inches, while the fuel tank was enlarged.

The 246 was built in three series, referred to internally as "L," "M," and "E." Series "L" cars, produced in late 1969 through 1970, have road wheels with a single knock-off spinner, front quarter bumpers that extend into the grille opening, and head rests mounted on the rear bulkhead. A short run of Series "M" cars were produced in early 1971; these had five-bolt road wheels, an internal rear boot lid release catch, and seat-mounted headrests. Series "E" cars were produced from early 1971 to the end of production in 1974. They incorporated all the changes to the Series "M" examples, together with further modifications to the engine and gearbox and detail revisions. A Targa-top version, the 246 GTS, appeared in 1972, and proved to be popular with North American buyers.

While not quite as fast in a straight line as its larger V12-engined stable-mates, the nimble Dino was capable of showing almost anything a clean pair of heels over twisty going. Though Enzo was intent on marketing the Dino as a separate, lesser marque, these beloved cars are today considered "proper" Ferraris in every respect.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at the Ferrari factory on May 30, 1972, this Dino Coupe, chassis no. 04092, was built to Italian market specification. As such, its 2,419cc, 65-degree V6 produces a full 195hp, 20hp more than the emissions-controlled U.S. version. Telltale signs of its European origin are the flush-mounted rather than vertical indicator lights in the nose panel, and the lack of rectangular side marker lights cut into the front and rear fenders. The Dino was built with Daytona-style seats with black inserts and matching leather door panels, and was finished at the factory in 501 Rosso, with 3218 Saddle upholstery.

This Dino's first owner was a resident of Milan, Italy. The car was then purchased by a Texan, who subsequently sold it on to a collector in Indianapolis, Indiana. The current owner bought the Dino 30 years ago, finding it through an advertisement in the Ferrari Market Letter.

This exceptional 246 GT has undergone a comprehensive, careful and total restoration to its original factory specification. The body was refinished in its original shade of 501 Rosso, and the bumpers replated in gleaming chrome. The engine was rebuilt, with new pistons, camshafts, valves, timing chains, bearings and seals, and the transaxle received new shift forks, synchronizers, bearings and seals. The brakes, suspension, cooling system and all other mechanical components were restored to as-new condition as well, with correct Ferrari parts used in all cases. The electrical system benefits from a new, correct alternator.

Since its restoration, the Dino has been driven 4,000 careful miles. It has won awards at several concours over the past several years, including a Best in Class at the Milwaukee Concours d'Elegance. When not being shown, the car has lived a pampered life, protected under a custom cover in a heated garage. Included in the sale is a binder with all restoration details including invoices, parts, labor and other related documents.

With its classic color combination and impeccably well restored condition, this Dino can be enjoyed on the open road, and shown with pride.
