We are incredibly pleased to offer this beautiful, UK-supplied Ferrari 246 GTS Dino. It was supplied new by S.G.M. Garages Ltd of Newcastle Upon Tyne to its first owner at Conforth Developments Ltd on the 24th September 1973. Letters from Tony Willis at the Maranello Concessionaires Archive and copies of the original build sheet confirm that chassis #06964 was finished in Argento Auteuil with a Nero interior. Also specified were 2 door mirrors, Perspex headlight covers, radio, 2 speakers and an electric aerial which all remain to this day.

Following two further owners, the car was purchased by John Harris, the sound engineer for rock band Queen. It is believed that Queen's song "I'm in Love with My Car" was written about Mr Harris and his attachment to his Dino. In the early 1980s after Mr Harris' ownership came to an end the car was purchased by a Mr J. Ford who had the car completely restored by Rosso Ltd, leading to a Concours class win in 1982 at the Ferrari Owners Club, Eastington Hall Concours.

In 2008, the Dino was owned by a Mr N. Freeman who decided the Ferrari could do with a bit of attention. An engine rebuild was at the top of the list which was carried out in May 2008 by a Ferrari specialist who entirely removed and dismantled the engine and cleaned, machined and replaced parts where necessary. A detailed invoice for ~£13,000 and a set of photographs document all the work that was carried out. In the same year the suspension and braking system received a full overhaul along with some bodywork repairs generating three further invoices totalling ~£14,000. The stunning 246 GTS was also returned to its original colour scheme and the same Ferrari specialists were again chosen to complete a full glass-out respray totalling £18,000 as confirmed by an invoice on file.

In 2018, a 700-mile round trip to the Le Mans Classic was completed in the Dino, performing effortlessly in the searing heat. 

Our lovely 246 Dino GTS is supplied with the following;

  • Driver's manual
  • Bookpack
  • Extensive history file

Showing 62,300 miles, this has to be one of the finest examples available today. Cars of this quality with history this well-documented rarely come to market, and we are very proud to offer this beautiful example which is ready to begin the next chapter of its life.
