Footnotes

  • According to the accompanying Ferrari Classiche certification, this stunning Dino 246 GTS was delivered from the factory in May 1973 to Chinetti Garthwaite Imports Inc, the famous East Coast USA importer owned by racing driver and NART founder, Luigi Chinetti. The specified colour was nocciola metalizzato (hazelnut metallic) with a contrasting black leather interior. The Ferrari Classiche certification, issued in 2016, also confirms that the engine is the original unit fitted to this car.

    After its early life in the USA the Dino returned to Europe via France and then relocated to its native Italy in 2001. At this point the car was yellow. The current owner, a lifelong Ferrari enthusiasts, commissioned extensive works to bring the car back to its former glory, having discovered that the original colour was the stunning nocciola metalizzato, a rare and at the same time most elegant choice, especially combined with the black leather interior. A mechanical inspection and overhaul was carried out by SaMoCar, the Rome-based Ferrari and Maserati concessionaire, in 2015 for just under €10,000 (invoice on file) while the bulk of the work was entrusted to the officially authorised Ferrari workshop Rosso Monza, now based in Arcore near Milan. Rosso Monza was also commissioned to obtain the Ferrari Classiche certification.

    As the car was to be certified as the European version, Rosso Monza removed all mechanical parts including the engine and sent the bodyshell to Ferrari in Maranello to have the rear frame modified appropriately. Back at Rosso Monza, the body was repaired wherever necessary and professionally repainted in the original colour. The total cost all of these works, carried out in 2016, amounted to more than €80,000 (list on file). Following completion, '05508' was awarded the cherished Ferrari Classiche certification and Certificate of Authenticity.

    The car comes with the aforementioned certification; copies of invoices; tool kit; original spare parts catalogue; original operating, maintenance and service handbook; additional instruction booklet for the USA version; original booklet with addresses of main dealers and service stations (the brochures are in an original Dino leather pouch); and Italian registration documents.

    Having been used sparingly since restoration, the Dino is described by the vendor as in excellent condition throughout. An opportunity not to be missed for the discerning Ferrari collector.
