1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS “Dino”

Left-hand drive chassis number 06470 was delivered new to main agents Tayre Ferrari in Madrid in October 1974 and sold to an American citizen, William Kemmerer, its first owner. The latter was then serving with the USAF and brought the Dino back to the US from Spain when his tour of duty was completed. Ferrari Market Letter records that the car was serviced by Algar Ferrari in Philadelphia in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

The Motorcar Gallery of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, subsequently advertised the Dino for sale, describing it as “a one-owner car since October 1974.” Its next recorded owner, H. Levy, of Glnedd, Pennsylvania and Boca Raton, Florida, prepared the car to the concours standards of the Ferrari Club of America and regularly exhibited it on the concours circuit between 1993 and 1995. The car was featured at the Cavallino Classic and the FCA Nationals, consistently placing in class at both venues. In August 1998 it passed to its next owner, a New York enthusiast, and was purchased from him by the vendor.

Thoroughly serviced in the spring of 2000 by Spott Autos, of Gaylordsville, Connecticut, the car is described as in excellent mechanical condition. Its unusual Pino Verde metallic green color scheme is most attractive, while the interior features air conditioning, electric window lifts and the “Daytona” black ribbed squab panels set in brown leather upholstery. The wheel arches have been flared to accommodate larger than standard 7″ x 14″ alloy wheels. The indicated mileage of 55,500 is believed to be genuine and this well-presented example of a most desirable Ferrari Dino comes with its original owner’s manual, warranty card and tool kit.

Stephen is the president and owner of Aston Martin of New England / Lotus Motorsports Inc. in Waltham, MA, although for the most part, vintage European cars are where his heart is. His need to over-indulge in vintage European cars of the 1950s and 1960s inevitably leads to coveting one more car. Recent garage inhabitants include a Porsche 356A Speedster and 356A European coupe, Ferrari 275 GTS and 246GT, BMW 2002 and a Hudson Hornet. HIs vintage-Porsche-driving wife, Amanda, tolerates this all nicely.
