We are pleased to offer 1972 Dino (Ferrari) 246 GTS s/n 04046 GTS, an extremely well sorted and very well documented USA model Ferrari Dino Spyder; finished in excellent and traditional Ferrari red with brand new tan leather “Daytona” seats with black inserts, all new tan carpets and new “mouse fur” on the dash. S/n 04046 is documented back to the first owner, a Mr. Kaleth in Altadena, CA and today has only 47,364 miles from new, so driven just under 1,000 miles per year, on average, since new! S/n 04046 is currently owned by a European client and has been kept in Los Angeles to use as reliable and comfortable topless transportation to the Monterey Historics and other events when he was in California. While in storage in Los Angeles, Fast Cars Ltd. of Redondo Beach was authorized to repair or update any and all deferred maintenance or creature comfort components so that s/n 04046 could be used without question or compromise. In August of 2014, Fast Cars Ltd. installed a full set of new Michelin XWX tires; installed a new clutch and pressure plate; rebuilt the A/C compressor; installed new coolant lines; rebuilt all four brake calipers, painted the rotors, painted the coolant pipes, installed new drive belts, replaced all soft rubber fuel lines; rebuilt the distributor and changed and flushed all engine, coolant and brake fluids. The total invoice was $11,654.20 at 46,157 miles. In October of 2014 a rebuilt Becker Grand Prix vintage car radio (fitted with Bluetooth) was purchased from Capeseer LTD. in London for £499.00 ($640.00 USD) and shipped to Fast Cars Ltd. for installation. In May of 2015, Fast Cars Ltd. repaired or replaced many items including fitting a new driver’s side rearview mirror; sent out the radiator for cleaning; fixed clogged window squirters; replaced a noisy speedo cable; replaced the passenger window lift motor; sent out the bumpers and other parts for chrome; sent out the gauges for calibration; sent out the starter for rebuild; refinished the steering shaft switches and shaft cover; removed the door cylinders to have new door keys made, repaired a warped dashboard and recovered the dash, the glovebox and the gauge cluster binnacle with new mouse-fur. Both door opening rubber seals were replaced; the Becker Grand Prix radio was installed; the throttle cable was adjusted; both door windows were adjusted to seal better; the brake master was rebuilt; new targa top seals were installed and the targa top roof was repainted in satin black. The interior was completely redone including all new leather door panels with new backing panels; the seat webbing was replaced and both seats were redone in the correct Daytona pattern; a complete new carpet kit was fitted; the center console was recovered; the fire wall behind the seats was recovered and the inner running boards or sill panels were recovered in new material. The total invoice was $46,576.89 at 46,163 miles. Only a month later in July of 2015, Fast Cars Ltd. repaired and spot painted minor road chips, made minor repairs to the lower quarter panels and color matched the paint on the doors, then color sanded, buffed; polished and then gave a final complete detail to 246 GTS s/n 04046. The total invoice was $16,644.00 at 46,163 miles. Total services, repairs, parts, labor and updates over the last three years was $74,875.09! We have copies of all invoices from Fast Cars Ltd. on file, e-mail or call us for copies by PDF. 246 GTS s/n 04046 also comes with the tool roll and most of the tool set. The 246 GT coupes and the later 246 GTS spyders were the first evolution of Ferrari’s higher-volume, smaller-engine exotics, meant to appeal to a larger market than the flagship V-12s, and were the first of the long line of V6 and V8 Ferraris that have evolved into the highest volume models for Ferrari. Named after Enzo Ferrari’s son, Alfredino, who died in 1956 at the age of 24 of muscular dystrophy, the Dino was the first of the “baby” Ferraris — smaller, lighter and more nimble than the larger 12-cylinder street Ferraris. Its transverse mid-engine was a Ferrari first in a street car, and the four-cam V6 shows its direct racing heritage from the V6 powered 206 SP and V6 powered F2 Ferraris. The sleek Pininfarina designed and Scaglietti built 246 stands as one of the most beautiful and exotic street model Ferraris ever built, epitomizing the Enzo-era Ferraris. Thanks to the Dino’s low sweeping body lines and the sounds of the well-proven, low-maintenance, high-revving V-6 right behind your seat, every trip to Sunday brunch, your local coffee shop or a week-long trip to the Monterey Historics and back sounds, drives and feels like a qualifying lap at Sebring. Needless to say, 246 GTS s/n 04046 has excellent paint over an unusually straight body. The tan with black “Daytona” leather seats are new and the new tan carpeting is flawless. The dash features new mouse-fur and the center console, side panels and rear firewall all have new and correct coverings. The overall attention to detail is obsessive with all the right plating, detail paint finishes, decals and labels. Fitted with a new and correct set of Michelin XWX tires. From new with A/C and P/W. Has high level detailing in the engine and under-hood compartments. Fully sorted, all systems work as they should, runs and drives as-new. On our test drive, second gear synchro was excellent and the engine pulled strongly once warmed, making for a wonderfully driving Dino. 246 GTS s/n 04046 is a pride-of-ownership 246 GTS in the traditional Ferrari color combination. Thanks to $74,875.09 in services over the last three years, the paint, panel fit, interior and indeed every component are as-new or better. We have copies of all invoices from Fast Cars Ltd. on file, e-mail or call us for copies by PDF. 246 GTS s/n 04046 also comes with the tool roll and most of the tool set. We welcome any mechanical or body inspection. Priced right at $349,950 or best offer, seriously for sale.
