1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS RHD
This exceptional Dino is one of just 258 produced in RHD and is an original UK delivered car. Manufactured in 1973 it was ordered by Maranello Concessionaires and shipped to its first owner, a Mr J Le Coutre of London in July where it stayed for the next few years until it was acquired by a Mr R Slack of Atlanta Georgia and exported to the United States. The car saw little use stateside and remained in storage from 1985 until 1999. At some point in this period the car was re-painted red but otherwise remained in very original condition as one would expect of a car with limited mileage and few owners. In 2000 the Dino was acquired from the deceased estate of a Mr Ted Carson, who was also from Atlanta, and by August had been shipped to Australia where it was completely dismantled and the entire vehicle bead blasted in preparation for a full body-off restoration, which was undertaken by an award winning specialist in New South Wales. Since the completion of the work the car was displayed at a number of events and won its class at the 2009 NSW Ferrari Owner’s Club concours. The car remained in Australia until 2013 when it was repatriated to the UK and since that time has received an extensive service as well as benefitting from concours standard engine bay and overall detailing. Finished in its original Giallo Fly paint with Black interior, having full matching numbers and with a recently completed Classiche, it provides a rare opportunity to acquire a very correct and rare RHD Dino. It comes accompanied by a photographic record of its restoration, numerous invoices, historic documentation and service manuals.
