2004, June, as per conversations with the owner: yes, he would like to sell the car. He keeps the car at his home in Arizona and still has the photo album showing each step of the restoration and all service records since the earth cooled.

The owner’s personal mechanic performed a full service on the Dino about a year ago, which included adjusting the carbs. The car is in excellent shape but it is rarely driven other than to exercise it, so it is time to sell it.
