1974 Ferrari

246 GTS

This 246 GTS was sold new through Algar Ferrari by then saleman Mr. Frank Donatoni. In a bit of correspondence, Mr. Donatoni stated ther following&

I was cruising through the Market Letter and I saw Dino # 08276 advertised and I thought I remembered the VIN and sure enough when I checked my records from Algar days I found it was one of the last new Dinos I retailed out of Algar in Paoli. We held the car another Dino #08112 and Daytona Spyder #16783 for about year after # 08276 was sold on a bet that I made with Al (Garthwaite) that I would get $75,000.00 for both cars. He said "no way" because trying to get $75,000.00 for cars that listed for about $19,800.00 and $30,140.00 respectively was insane!! On 3/16/1976 I sold both cars for $75,000.00!! Anyway your car started life on 5/17/1975. Brings back great memories!!
Regards,
Frank Donatoni

08276 was sold to a Mr. Richard T. Smith of Atlanta, Georgia in 1974. Mr. Smith kept it until 1982 when it was traded to FAF Motorcars. It was then sold to a Mr. Donald J. Madak of Marietta, Georgia. In 1989 this Dino was sold to Mr. Ed Tauber who had extensive restoration work done by Tillack and Company in California.

In 1990 and due to the crazy market pricing, this Dino was sold to a Japanese collector and remained in this collection with little use until May 2013 when it was re-imported to the USA.
This Dino has recently received a full servicing, electronic ignition upgrade, new exhaust muffler, battery trickle charge for storage, air conditioning service and upgrade, 5 6.5 Campy wheels as fitted to Chairs & Flares Dinos, various window moldings have been renewed, window lift servicing, new waterpump and rebuilt carburetors.

Upon a recent road test, this Dino performed flawlessly with good power as well as excellent gearbox and clutch.

Complete with books, tools and factory jack, this is an excellent opportunity to purchase a Dino that has been loved and cared for from new.

Price: $459,500
