Description
 
This 1974 Ferrari 246 GTS Dino Convertible . It is equipped with a 5 Speed Manual transmission. The vehicle is Red with a Tan Leather interior. It is offered As-Is, not covered by a warranty. - 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS (US Model) Chassis No. 07810 Transaxle No. 2976E Body No. 2750 Excellent mechanical condition throughout Single Family ownership all history known from new! Great documentation file that includes servicing from 1974-Present Original letters and correspondence from Luigi Chinetti to the owner! Body number 2750 found on all factory stamped areas Offered with books and tools Chassis no. 07810 is a late example of what is considered to be the most refined Dino model produced. Originally imported by Luigi Chinetti Motors, Inc. in Greenwich, Connecticut, the Ferrari was special ordered by a band teacher in Islip, NY and fitted with every option except chairs and flairs. In the documentation file that accompanies the car are original letters signed by Luigi Chinetti himself and addressed to the new owner. A copy of the check used to pay for the car and original correspondence notes from 1974. Dedicated ownership and regular servicing attribute to the outstanding preservation of this 246. Lovingly cared for until his death in 2007, the Dino was then inherited by the owners nephew, who always admired the car and continued the same tradition of care and attention. We had the privilege to purchase this Ferrari in 2012, and just recently reacquired the car from the third owner. Currently finished in a Pale Rosso with fresh Tan leather trim (with Daytona stitching) and black Targa top, factory A/C, electric windows, original Chromodora wheels and headlight covers (installed in the cars early history). Although though the cosmetic aspects of the 246 have aged, this GTS remains a strong and well suited driver example. Mechanically, the Ferrari runs and drives beautifully; it starts cold with the first turn of the key and doesnt smoke with excellent compression. It handles, brakes, and sounds excellent on the road. The A/C blows cool, not cold. All electrical components are in excellent working order, lights, signals, wipers, radio, gauges, clock and PW windows. 07810 retains all of its original parts and body numbers. Stampings of 2750 are found on the inside face of each door (facing door jamb), both rear trunk hinges, both door jamb kick plates, both chrome trim pieces found on the inner leading edge of the doors and on the expansion tank mounting tab. Very rarely seen is the factory chalked number on the luggage compartments firewall. The body lines and panel fit are very straight and even throughout. Recent services include a mechanical tune and freshening, motor mounts and bushings throughout the entire vehicle, rebuild starter and full Tubi exhaust among others. Accompanying this Ferrari is the original spare with proper Michelin tire, a complete set of original manuals in pouch, original tool roll, all servicing records and documentation from new. Its not often such an honest example surfaces with all history known and recorded from new, here is an exciting opportunity for the enthusiast seeking a truly great Dino, which we are proud offer to market again. $329,500 USD To learn more about this vehicle, please contact our sales department at (281) 497-1000 or sales@driversource.com Selling Made Simple.
