I just bought new mats and subwoofers. Ferrari of Atlanta just serviced and said they were very impressed with the tight steering and the smoothness of the syncros during shifting. They found no evidence of accidents and could find nothing to do but an oil change and a steering bushing. The AC has been removed (I have it) and it has stainless steel coolant tubes and a late core radiator. The engine was rebuilt 4000 miles ago and it starts right up and runs very strong. The redline is at 7900 and it does not skip a beat getting there. The quad exhausts sing only like a Ferrari can with a throaty roar.
The dramatic and curvaceous lines of the Dino 246GT still command admiration more than thirty years later. It was named as one of the top 100 cars of the century by Dupont Registry. It is beautiful to look at, has a particularly responsive and forgiving handling, is fast, and is the product of one of the world’s finest and most highly respected of sporting high-performance cars.
Named for Enzo Ferrari’s son Alfredino, the Dino is a design triumph and is one of the most beautiful cars of all time. Designed by Pinanfarina, the body is steel although all three deck lids are aluminum. The six cylinder midship engine is transversely mounted, has a five speed gearbox and puts out about 195hp which propels the Dino up to 150 M.P.H. There are four ventilated, servo assisted disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, independent double wishbone suspension and coil springs. There are 2 valves/cylinder, 2 overhead cams and 3 Weber 40 DCNF/7 carbs. Its agile handling and unmistakable Ferrari exhaust note make for an exhilarating driving experience.
I am the third owner. It was bought for a doctor’s wife in Hollywood, Ca. in 1973. She sold it to a lady that kept it for 20 years. Comes complete with tool kit, jack, chock block, original Owner’s Manual etc.
This vehicle has been pampered it’s whole life. It has been covered and garaged or kept in a temp controlled airplane hangar so it has very little UV damage evident – even on the original mousehair dash. The seals are in very good condition.
The lines are flawless, dent free, and never wrecked. The tires are the Michelin XVS. They are slightly dry rotted but they do not make this model tire anymore.
No Dinos left the factory with Ferrari badging – they were all added later. Chrome has been redone and is in excellent shape.
The saddle leather interior has been redone with high quality leather and stitching. I just bought new mats. The AMFM cassette player, power amp and just replaced subwoofers are great but need to be loud to hear over the roar of the engine!
