This 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT is a US-market example that was completed on May 16, 1972 and distributed by Chinetti-Garthwaite Imports in Pennsylvania. It was originally owned by professional basketball player Carl John Neumann, and later spent several years in Florida before being acquired by the selling dealer in early 2020. The numbers-matching 2.4-liter V6 was rebuilt in July 2020 and is mated to the original five-speed manual transaxle, which was overhauled in 2004. Additional work carried out in 2020 included rebuilding the triple Weber carburetors, re-coring the radiator, installing new Koni shocks and front springs, mounting new Michelin XWX tires, performing an alignment, and more as outlined below. This Dino 246 GT is part of DriverSource's lineup of three early-1970s sports cars currently being auctioned on BaT. It is now offered with service records, a Marcel Massini report, a tool kit and jack, owner's manuals, and a clean Texas title.

Chassis 03840 is one of 314 Dinos to leave the factory finished in Rosso Dino (20-R-350), and at some point received a repaint in its current shade of red. A three-step paint correction was performed following the selling dealer's acquisition, and traces of the original orange color can be seen under the window trim and on the inner door. Closeups in the photo gallery show the finish and trim, including various imperfections. Scaglietti body number 924 is shown stamped on the door jamb plates, trunk hinges, and coolant reservoir bracket, matching the number listed in the information from Marcel Massini.

Cromodora 14×6.5” alloy wheels wear 205/60 Michelin XWX tires that were mounted in 2020, and a matching spare is housed in the front compartment. Headlight covers have been added, and US-market side markers and recessed front turn signals have been retained. Sicursiv and Sekurit glass etchings are shown in the gallery below, along with closeups of chips in the glass.

The interior is trimmed in Nero vinyl, as indicated by the original delivery information. “Mouse fur” dash covering is retained but has lost its fuzzy texture, and signs of age are noted on various other surfaces. Amenities include Borletti air conditioning, power windows, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM stereo. The air conditioning compressor and clutch were replaced in 2020, and the system was recharged.

Veglia Borletti instrumentation includes a 170-mph speedometer and a 10k-rpm tachometer. The five-digit odometer shows 51k miles, 100 of which have been added by DriverSource.

The 2.4-liter Tipo 135 CS V6 was overhauled as part of a 2004 mechanical refurbishment by Rosso Corsa Ferrari Service of Jupiter, Florida, and was again rebuilt in July 2020 by DriverSource. Work during the 2020 refresh included replacing a damaged connecting rod and installing new pistons, rings, rod and main bearings, camshafts, cylinder head fasteners, and a new oil pickup tube. The block and cylinder heads were reconditioned during the 2004 rebuild, and MSD electronic ignition was added in 2007. The triple twin-choke Weber DCNF carburetors were rebuilt in 2020, and the radiator was also refurbished with a new core, steam cleaning, and straightening of the fins. Additional service in 2020 included rebuilding the starter and alternator and replacing the battery, coolant header tank, oil cooler air duct, air intake, air filter, handbrake cables, and engine cover stay. Compression test results are pictured in the gallery, showing between 140 and 160 psi across all six cylinders.

The gearbox was also rebuilt in 2004 with new synchronizer rings. New Koni shock absorbers and bushings were installed all around in 2020, along with new coil springs up front. Additional work included performing an alignment and replacing the driveshaft rubber boots, steering rack bushings, and aluminum undertray.

A “By The Numbers” composite includes photos of engine stamping *0009813* and transaxle stamping 945. Both match the numbers provided on the Marcel Massini report shown in the photo gallery.

A set of owner's manuals in a Ferrari-branded portfolio is included in the sale, along with a tool kit, jack, and a binder containing records dating back to 1999.

Images from the 2020 engine rebuild are included in the auction gallery, along with invoices from the overhaul and previous work.
