We are excited to offer for sale this 1972 RHD Ferrari 246 GT Dino, confirmed as one of the 488 UK RHD GT cars and finished in its factory specification of Rosso Chiaro with black upholstery.
This E Series Dino was produced by Ferrari SpA, Maranello, Italy in March 1972 for the UK market importer Maranello Concessionaires Ltd. and their Dino dealer Sytner of Nottingham. It has the confirmed correct chassis, engine, gearbox and body numbers.
Included is an extensive history file detailing the 53,000 miles the car has covered. Since being purchased by the current owner in 2014, through Barkaways, the car has only covered 1000 miles having spent most of its time in storage.
In 2010 the engine underwent a thorough rebuild and has covered around 3000 miles since. This included being totally stripped, blue printed, rebored and reassembled using high compression pistons and new big end and main bearings. All moving parts were fully balanced and the cylinder heads were ported and gas flowed and incorporated with slightly larger inlet valves, whilst all four cam shafts were replaced with Lancia Stratos road going cams.
The original tool kits are present, whilst the original steering wheel and headlights are also included. The original owner’s manual, spare parts catalogue, proof of delivery form and leather wallet are in great condition and the history file includes Maranello order forms from 1972.
We have completed a thorough inspection on the car including a service and fitted new front brake calipers and pads, new rear shock absorbers and a new oil cooler, whilst the steering rack has been overhauled with new track rod ends.
This classic Ferrari has been well cared for throughout its life and is now ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
