This Dino Was a Deal

When is a Ferrari not a Ferrari? Generally speaking, when it’s a Dino.

These vehicles were created because Ferrari needed to build a production V6 in sufficient numbers to homologate the engine for racing in the mid-1960s. However, Ferrari didn’t want to offer a downsized engine in its own road-going cars, so another solution had to be found.

The answer was to produce the Dino as its own marque. Check the Ferrari Profile “1974 Ferrari 246 GTS Dino Spyder” by Read More

1962 Ferrari 250 GTO

1953 Siata 208S Spider

Under the guidance of several marque experts, this beautifully restored example of the rare Motto-bodied spider benefits from a recent restoration to factory specifications. According to the amalgamated data of John De Boer’s Italian Car Registry, and other anecdotal sources, chassis BS518 was sold new in 1957 from the backyard of the Beverly Hills-based oilman Bill Doheny, who famously financed the local Siata importer (and Carrera Panamericana driver) Ernie McAfee. This late delivery does indeed indicate that BS518 might have Read More

1966 Ford GT40 Mk II Coupe

Holman-Moody was initially allocated three GT40s for the 1966 season: chassis P1016 (the car offered here), P1031 and P1032. Although the chassis numbers were among the sequence used for production GT40 road and racing cars, they were each built to new Mk II specifications. The GT40 Mk II was the product of Kar Kraft, Ford’s stateside sports car facility, which took the initially British-built GT40 and problem-solved its weaker aspects. The chassis was made stiffer from thicker-gauge steel, and it Read More
