1971 Ferrari 246 GT Dino – This Ferrari Dino coupe, #02314, is an early Series 3 “E” car produced in 1971 with factory Chromadora wheels. It was delivered new to Motor S.a.s., Roma or Bologna, Italy and was one of only 69 Dinos painted in Verde Germolglio (20-G-465, “Bud Green”) and a nero (161) interior.
As a European car, it never had any of the DOT emission control equipment installed. It was delivered in Italy new, then in December 1972 sold to a Swiss owner. It stayed in Switzerland until about the early 1980s when it went to Germany. The German owner moved to West Vancouver, BC, Canada and brought the Dino with him. The Dino stayed in Vancouver until 2000 when it was sold to a collector in Alberta. While in Europe it received a concours restoration to the current colour combination of Ferrari rosso with nero/rosso two tone interior with Daytona seats. It was brought back into British Columbia in 2004, and it is currently in our collection in Victoria. Since 2004 this Dino has been maintained and serviced at both Ferrari Maserati of Vancouver and Rudi & Company in Victoria.
The condition of the car is nearly faultless. There are no visible prep issues or marks in the paint, dings in the chrome, curb rash on the wheels, scratches to the glass, scuffs on the door sills or leather etc. All the stickers, coatings and hardware are correct in the engine bay. It wears correct Michelin XWX tires, and comes with the correct jack and tools. This Dino has the desirable Daytona style seats, black with red contrast.
The car fires up instantly, without any noticeable smoke, and settles into an even idle. All temperatures and pressures are where they should be. The clutch and transmission operate properly with no difficulty selecting gears, syncro wear or clutch slippage. The car tracks straight and brakes securely.
This is as nice a vintage Ferrari as one can find and is ready to be driven and enjoyed or shown at Concours events.
