1974 FERRARI 246 GTS DINO
COACHWORK BY SCAGLIETTI TO PININFARINA DESIGN
Chassis No. 08466
Blu Chiaro Metallico with blue leather interior
Engine: V-6, mid-engine, double overhead camshafts, cast iron block and light alloy heads, 2,418cc, 178bhp at 7,000rpm; Gearbox: five-speed manual; Suspension: front and rear independent with unequal length A-arms, coil springs, tubular shock absorbers; Brakes: four wheel disc. Left hand drive.
Designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti, these exquisite cars earned their reputation as superb driver's cars. Mid-engined with a flexible power unit, an uncomplicated chassis, independent suspension and a comfortable driver's cockpit, they proved to be quick, maneuverable cars that are still a joy to drive. The Pininfarina styling has lasted over 30 years and both the GT and GTS Dinos are still hugely admired by Ferrari enthusiasts.
This lovely example was a California car when new and has been in its present private ownership for three years. The panelwork is excellent and the shut lines are superb. The color scheme is original to the car and, in our opinion, is very tasteful throughout. The interior has blue carpets and trim with optional blue/black Daytona leather seats and headrests. It is all equipped with air conditioning and power windows. The indicated mileage is just 24,240 which is believed to be original from new. The Dino has correct Cromodora wheels, original tools and jack and a TUBI stainless exhaust system. It has been properly serviced, with new fuel lines, shock absorbers and a set of Pirelli P400 tires all fitted recently. This meticulously prepared and maintained Dino GTS would be welcome at any classic car gathering and is certainly very refreshing in this lovely color.
