This Dino was a perfect specimen for a premium restoration. Everything on this Dino was meticulously removed, documented, and restored during the restoration process. Great lengths were made to ensure quality fit and finish including removal and restoration of all fiberglass. The chassis and body were mounted on a rotisserie, hand stripped to bare metal then lightly glass bead blasted. All chassis pipe measured then coated in epoxy along with all inner body sheet metal. Sandwich between the floor and firewall heat and sound retardants and deadener were used with 3M insulation throughout the cockpit floor and firewall then seam sealed to reduce heat and sound.

Drive Train
The motor was professionally rebuilt in 2015-2016 with new pistons, cam chains & tensioners, rods & crank bearings. It also received re-conditioned crank, cams, rods, and rebuilt heads. The block was machined and decked with the heads. The motor then was reassemble without any smog equipment, which enhances the maximum HP and performance out of the stock motor. Gear box was thoroughly gone through with minimum replacement parts… only new synchros were installed. All the suspension, brakes, steering rack, and Koni shocks were separately restored and reinstalled. The radiator, cooling and heating systems were equipped with new hoses and newly re-plated original clamps. All of the correct finishes, cadmium plating and paint sheen were researched and used. No powder coating anywhere! All coatings where wet sprayed in a two-part urethane then baked.

Interior
Newly restored interior work includes Negro Sebring stamped heat stitched seats and door panels as original, new gray wool carpets with dark gray leather edging and the correct “mouse hair” dashboard

Exterior
This Dino sports superior fit and finish on this factory stock color “Rosso Dino” using the best product BASF/ Glasurit base coat/clear coat paint system. This particular Dino was restored back to the way it was when it was delivered from the factory. Originally delivered in Italy, this car is delete exterior mirrors, radio and radio antenna. All the glass on the car is original with their original insignias and professionally polished as new.
Euro cars delivered to Italy have always appealed to collectors because of the uniqueness of flush mount clear front lenses with amber bulbs and rear yellow turn signals lenses as well as closer to body rear and front bumpers to make the Euro car more appealing to the Dino enthusiast who is seeking a Euro spec car instead of a U.S. spec car.

All five Cromodora wheels were professionally refurbished with correct color and sheen and clocked mounted with a new set of Michelin XWX’s I also have the original XWX's from France in great shape.

Chrome
Front and rear bumpers were fitted to the body then double nickel plated and blocked followed by a double copper plating and blocked again, then chromed to ensure a beautiful flat surface.

This Dino GT comes with a full tool kit, books in Italian, and jack.
