In order to honor the memory of his late son and continue his developmental work on a new V-6 engine, Enzo Ferrari directed Vittorio Jano to finish Dino's project. The Dino was not only Ferrari's first mid-engine production car, but also marked the debut of a new Ferrari-based Dino brand that was entirely devoid of Ferrari badging. With its powerful 2,418 cc engine, and a reported 146 mph top speed coupled with race-inspired handling, the Dino quickly impressed Ferrari fans.
They are still out there...
The epitome of an exciting garage find; this Ferrari Dino GT remained in single family ownership from 1973-2023. Tucked away in an Arizona garage for decades the Dino was pulled out of storage in January 2023 and is now being offered for public sale the first time since 1973. Originally distributed by Bill Harrah's Modern Classic Motors, #03590 was dressed in striking Bianco Polo white paint over a Rosso red interior. Years later the long-term owner changed the colors to classic red over tan and accumulated 48,704 miles before being tucked away in dry storage in a discreet garage near the heart of Phoenix, AZ.
Upon close inspection the Dino is complete and retains its original numbers matching engine and transmission. Additionally the Scaglietti body number "731" is found stamped on both trunk hinges, door jamb plates, and coolant reservoir mounting tab. While the engine turns freely by hand the Dino is not currently running and will require a total servicing prior to road use. Additionally the Dino retains its original Sicursiv glass and Smog equipment. Included with the sale are an original jack with bag, original wheel chalk, its original tool bag without tools, emergency window crank, a copy of an owner's manual and the Marcel Massini History Report.
Ferrari 246 GT and GTS Dino's have become one of the most sought-after collector cars in the market. Here is an opportunity to acquire a nearly life long single owner example that is ready to be brought back to its former glory. Now available for a limited time...
