Purchased new from Griswold & Co. in Berkeley CA on September 10, 1973 this Dino came optioned with air conditioning, leather interior, power windows and metallic paint. The grand total came to $16,500. Steven Giacobbi was the lucky guy who plunked down the cash for the car that day, and he would go on to own the car until 1986 when it transferred hands to Timothy Murphy of Norwalk, CT.

During his ownership Murphy would drive the car from California to New York, and write a column about his experience and the car's flawless performance in the Ferrari Club's magazine, Prancing Horse. In late 1989 he sold the car to a NY dealer, and over the next few years the 246GT would move from dealer to dealer.

In August of 1994 the Dino finds it next long term owner in Lars Malmberg. He kept the car in Hermosa Beach, CA and maintained it faithfully for the next two decades. During his ownership the very original car received new carpets, a rebuild of its original transmission, carburetor overhaul, and a multitude of small maintenance tasks. In 2012 Malmberg was required to move to Sweden and labored over the decision to take his beloved Dino with him. In the end the worry over shipping damage, and import issues won out and he decided to let he baby find a new home.

Here is your opportunity to own one of the precious few, well preserved, mostly original Dinos left in the US. It comes with it original sales paperwork, books, jack, and maintenance records. Since arriving at Canepa the Dino was taken to whole new level. Steam cleaned and detailed from the bottom up, this car is now absolutely immaculate. The Rosso Rubino Metallizzato paint was color sanded and buffed to absolute mirror finish. All mechanical systems where thoroughly addressed and sorted. No part of the car was overlooked, and it now is in truly concours condition.
