This particular Dino 206, chassis number 00294, is an Italian-delivery example that was delivered new to Rome. First registered on February 1, 1969, the car passed through several owners before passing to the current owner’s father in June of 1981. It remained in his family ever since.

Today, the car is presented in largely original condition, having only received one recent bare-metal respray. Otherwise, it remains unrestored and in very well-preserved condition throughout, still wearing original traditional black Rome license plates.

While the Dino grew over time in size, engine displacement and complexity, it is the earliest, 206 Dinos that remain the most treasured.
