This beautiful Ferrari 246 Dino is one of only 272 UK-delivered cars completed in right hand drive and one of only 116 produced in the striking blue Azzurro Metallizzato colour. Constructed on 24th January 1973, the Ferrari had been registered as PGX5L and delivered to its first owner, a Denise McCann of Sydney Street, London by 6th March. It remained in London for less than a year before moving to Banbury in 1974 when it was acquired by a Mr Graham Morris who kept it for almost 4 years before selling it to a Mr Richard Colton in March 1978. The next move, in 1981, was to prove a significant one when it was acquired by Mr Martin Abbott who was to keep it for the next 23 years. During Mr Abbott’s ownership the car was carefully maintained and the meticulous mileage records, numerous invoices and other correspondence attest to the care that the car received during this time. With Mr Abbott’s advancing years the Ferrari moved, in 2004, to its most recent owner who commissioned a full body-off bare-metal professional restoration, during which time the car was returned to its highly attractive and original Azzurro Metallizzato colour scheme having previously been painted red. Since the completion of most of the work, the car has barely been used and as such presents in virtually-new condition with its delightful blue paint and Nero leather interior. With the final detailing currently being undertaken by JD Classics the car will be available in December 2016. Numbers Match vehicle's factory data sheet. With an extensive history file, known ownership record, leather document pouches, complete tool kit and a very rare original jack it offers the chance to acquire a stunning Ferrari Dino with excellent provenance.
