Hi, new owner!

#01438 bought from Gary Bobileff Motorcar Co in San Diego.

Will do a complete restoration to bring it back to its original glory.

I would love to see input on its past history from all of you here if possible. Thanks!

Rosso Dino is the original color.

I guess we have reached the point where individual expression does not pay, as was said somewhere, if the factory had done would be worth millions! Having said all that, the standard Dino nose ain't too shabby! Congrats on the ownership

Hello Dignini,

I don't have a problem with "individual expression" so much as the car being modified to be something it originally wasn't - in this case, it was made to "look like" a hybrid between 206SP and 250LM.

yes noted,
Even though, both the 206sp and 250LM my all-time favorites, it would not occur to me to change one Ferrari to mimic the other, I guess the previous owner felt differently. Recently a 246 gt converted to a 246gts went on the block. I guess at one time somebody though it was a good idea. There, is as they say, no accounting for taste.

Yes, dignini. Which is why it's very important for me as the new custodian of this beautiful car to bring it back to factory spec a.s.a.p.
