Features

1974 Dino (Ferrari) 246 GTS s/n 08284, a very well documented Dino which had only one owner for twenty-one years, from 1992 to 2013. From new in Argento Auteuil Metallizzato 106-E-1 - ROSSO VM3171 (silver) with dark red leather Daytona seats with black inserts with dark red carpets. Very high chassis number with a May 1974 build date, only one month before Dino production ended. Only 35,868 miles from new. Treated to a complete mechanical restoration. Engine rebuilt with valves, new pistons, rings, pins, main and rod bearings, and timing chains, cylinder head studs, water pump rebuild, new clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing in November 2009, so only six years ago. Has all service records back to 1993. Pre-sale inspection in process, call for a copy by PDF. Nice older silver paint over a very straight body. Good older dark red “Daytona” leather seats and dark red carpets. Fitted with an excellent set of Michelin MXV4 tires. From new with A/C and P/W. Very nicely detailed engine compartment. All systems work as they should, runs and drives well. On our test drive, second gear synchro was good and the engine pulled strongly once warmed, giving a wonderfully driving car. Very clean rust free chassis and lower floor. 246 GTS s/n 08284 shows well and drives like a near-new, pride-of-ownership 246 GTS with amazing accessories and documentation. Known ownership back to the original selling dealer. We welcome any mechanical or body inspection. A real “time capsule” that’s well sorted with good paint, excellent panel fit and good older leather.
