RB Collection is pleased to offer this incredible, two-owner, and Ferrari registered 1972 Dino 246GT. This car is believed to be a two-owner example that was sold new in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, and was acquired by the second and most recent owner in 1981. This is a highly desirable fixed-roof GT, with its pure, clean looks – just as Pininfarina intended. It is a very original car, with the exception of one repaint and an interior retrim. It has been in storage since 2005, so it will require some recommissioning prior to being driven on the road. That said, it is an inherently sound and attractive car, finished in classic Rosso Corsa over a black interior. The body is remarkably good, with pretty paint and nice quality detailing. Bumpers and the brightwork are in good condition, and the car rides on a very nice set of Chromodora alloys.

The interior was retrimmed many years ago, and while the upholstery choice is interesting, the major components are intact and in good order, making a restoration a very straightforward proposition. The dash appears to be original, with correct Veglia Borletti instruments and factory original switchgear. This car was equipped from new with air conditioning and power windows, the controls for which all remain in place. Even the original shift knob and Momo Prototipo steering wheel are in place and in fine condition. The car shows just over 38,000 miles, which we believe to be accurate. Importantly, the factory-original owner’s manuals, tool kit, jack and sheet metal wheel chock all remain with the car.

Mechanically, the car is complete with the 2.4 liter V6 presenting in remarkably unmolested condition. Original warning labels are intact on the air cleaner housing, and while some service work is required to get it up and running, it presents in outwardly good order. Given the time passed since it was last driven the fuel and braking systems will require attention.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a two-owner, low mileage Dino in highly desirable GT specification. The 246 GT is one of the finest driver’s cars of all time, with its sweet and rev-happy V6 and impeccably balanced chassis. This example is a remarkable find, and with some attention, will surely make its next long-term owner very happy indeed.

In the 1930s, Enzo Ferrari swore to his friends and family that if he were to have a son, he would quit the deadly business of driving race cars. He held true to his promise when his first son, Alfredo was born in 1932. Alfredo – also known as Alfredino or “Dino”, was groomed from a young age to take over the family business. After studying economics, he then trained as an engineer in Switzerland and studied alongside his father’s employees like the legendary Vittorio Jano. Dino is credited with the 750 Monza – a robust, twin-cam four-cylinder racing car that was known for its incredible durability and torquey, robust power. The 750 Monza and its siblings won in some of the toughest events in the world, and Dino earned the admiration of his father. Dino was also an early proponent of the V6 engine, and he worked closely with Jano on the development of the 1.5 liter V6 grand prix engine program. Sadly, Dino would succumb to muscular dystrophy at only 24 years of age; his death casting a dark shadow over Enzo for years to come.

Following Dino’s death, Enzo vowed to carry on his son’s legacy. Any V6 engine leaving Maranello would bear Dino’s name on the cam covers. While the V6 engine was proven in a number of open wheel and sports racing cars, it wasn’t until the late 1960s that the concept was used on a road car. The 206 Dino of 1967 was billed as a “Junior Ferrari” and in fact, did not wear a single Ferrari badge. It was intended to take on cars like the Porsche 911, which it did masterfully. The alloy-bodied 206 was superseded by the steel bodied 246 GT, which was fitted with a larger, 2.4 liter version of the four-cam V6, mated to a 5-speed transaxle. The cars were offered in closed GT form, or targa-roof GTS form, and are to this day considered among the most beautiful, thrilling, and rewarding sports cars of all time. Collectors have taken note and Dino values have skyrocketed in recent years.
