1973 246 GTS On Offer

On offer from Mike Sheehan...

We are pleased to offer 1973 Ferrari 246 GTS s/n 05496, a former platinum scoring USA model 246 GTS with only 51,352 well-documented miles and a known ownership history from new. Also has the full tools set and tool roll and the jack, jack bag and lug wrench. Even has the original Becker Europa stereo. Only six owners from new and with one owner from 1979 to 2002, so 23 years. A cosmetically and mechanically superb Ferrari that could easily be platinum again, priced right at $189,500.

We are pleased to offer 1973 Ferrari 246 GTS s/n 05496, a former platinum scoring USA model 246 GTS with only 51,352 well-documented miles and a known ownership history from new. Complete with the correct original leather owner's pouch, the full set of six books plus the ultra-rare warranty card from the selling dealer to the first owner. New in Marrone Dino metallizzato with tan leather seats and power windows. Still in Marrone Dino metallizzato with tan leather today. Best in show and a platinum award at the Limerock FCA meet 2000. Very nicely detailed older "platinum level" paint and body fit, with all rubber, trim and controls nicely detailed. Near new tan leather "Daytona" seats, door panels and carpets. Recent mechanical service, new clutch and cable, paint detailed and touched up. With fresh detail work and a thorough detail of the engine compartment this Dino could again grace the lawns of next year's concours circuit. This 246 GTS offers everything the Ferrari owner could want: full books, warranty card and tools, the fun of topless motoring, the soft and sensual lines of the Dino and the sounds of the well-proven, low maintenance and high-revving V6 that makes every trip to the grocery store sound like a qualifying lap at Sebring. Mechanically maintained, this Ferrari is in excellent condition, with everything working as it should.

So when will Dinos go for over $200K? You could get these back in 2003 for just under $100 it seems.

It's a shame whoever restored the car could not resist fitting a Ferrari horn button and cavallino carpets, as well as a Ferrari badge on the rear. Real eyesores IMO
