1989&-1990, Joe Nastasi, the owner at the time, sent 246 GTS s/n 04890 to Italy for a “spare no expense rebuild” by the original craftsmen that worked for Ferrari. Saro, the authorized Ferrari dealer for Bologna, did “all” mechanical work, “not just the engine”. Brakes, suspension, gearbox, “anything it needed”. The coach work and paint were performed at AutoSport by Franco Bacchelli and Lupi did the “Nastasi designed” interior, so…. the restoration was done by the best-of-the-best Italian shops.
As per Joe Nastasi, following the return of the Dino from Italy he didn’t put 500 miles on the car before including the Dino in a transaction with Ferrari of Central Florida in 1998.
