Description

French title Engine n° 135C0000006438 - Rare model - High quality restoration - Equipped with the celebrated Ferrari-Dino V6 According to research carried out by the two previous owners, this car was first put into circulation in Rome in 1971. It was then imported from Italy by its second owner, M. Leclerc from Wasquehal, before being given to the Aurelia Garage in 1984 and sold to its third owner, M. Turquin, from Charleville-Mézières. It has been in the hands of the current owner since 2002. Originally presented in red, the car was completely restored in 1995 and 1996 by Toni Auto and Fili Lupi, and at this point was repainted Modena yellow, conforming to the catalogue colour. At the same time the odometer was returned to zero. Since that time, the car has been regularly maintained and in 2007 and 2008 major work was carried out by Provost Automobiles at Le Mans, costing over €25,000. This included replacing the side rails and sills. Today, the odometer reads 23,000 km and the car is presented in excellent condition. The interior is upholstered entirely in stitched black leather: seats, dashboard covering, door cards and tailor-made tonneau cover. The alpaca hood is new and the car is equipped with a very rare hardtop in excellent condition, with roof-lining also in stitched black leather. It has hubcaps from a Dino 246, but the original hubcaps will be delivered with the car. It also comes with the original toolkit as well as the incredibly rare manufacturers' books (engine and body spares), a technical booklet, a beautifully illustrated and rare book " Dessins et Performances " and a period poster of the 1970 Motor Show. We were able to carry out a very satisfactory test-drive. The V6 2.4-litre engine provides more flexibility than the 2-litre version and is rarer: there were just 420 examples of the 2.4-litre Spider against 1,163 of the 2-litre Spider. In this desirable condition and with its rare hardtop, this car is bound to attract the attention of enthusiasts.
