Who knows which bumper was delivered at a new 206GT and the early 246 L version ? Many Ferraristi never saw this step in the bumper. Some italian delivered cars have the bumper step and i had in 1974 a L- 246 which had a flat bumper without this step at the fenderside.(Germany)
It looks that in different countries were the Dinos delivered with a different bumperlook.

Please can you explain a bit more on the point in question?
Dino 206 and early 246GT-Tipo L had bumpers that are different than the Dinos beyond. Their bumpers were thinner with wrap around and into the front grill.

I believe he is talking about the tail end of the bumpers (near front fenders) that have a "stepped" contour at the terminal. My Dino is just that. Sorry I do not have a close up shot of that part, but maybe you can make it out from the pics below. w/ smiles Jimmy

Thanks Jimmy.
I can see what he was asking about now, i was not sure if he was talking about the angle of the front bumper, i had never noticed the step before, very subtle :thumbsup:

Wheels1: You know, soon after I bought my Dino, at first glance and first impression, I thought it was a dent by the previous owner. Stupid me. Live and learn. w/ smiles Jimmy

The edge in the outer part (fender) of the Dino 206 bumper

Thanks for the discussion. But who knows for which countries which
bumpers came toi the market. I am shure that it was not in Germany since i had a new first series 246Gt in that time and i had no bumper edge car.
Maybe the US models had ?

Happy New Year

Did you own (purchase) your car new or you bought a used one, Tony ? As for the L model, if I am not mistaken, only the very early L models (early numbers) had such bumpers like the 206s. That means 1969. Altogether, I believe around 340 or so L models were made over a period of roughly two years.

Also, the occasional L models that come up on sale had the bumpers replaced for whatever reason it had. Many of the details are not correct and many times, sellers are not familiar with the details.

206/246 bumper

Ciao Jimmy,

i bought the car new. The french cars had also different bumpers with a kind of protection across the nose.
I tooked the bumpers off in that time and it looked more sporty. At one
Dino 246 i painted the wheels yellow, it looked like the Dino race cars. But soon i changed back to normal.

Best Regards
Tony

Gorgeous Dino. The chrome accents against black are show piece.

Beautiful Dino Jimmy! And she looks stunning in black. In some shots I see a tan interior with later Dino-type headrests, whilst in other shots I see a gorgeous red interior with the earlier (proper?) Dino-type headrests. I'll get me anorak now...

Beautiful pics Jimmy. I especially like the third from last. WIth the lighting and the black car, it shows off the lines magificently. How could this car have ever been deemed as 'lesser' Ferrari? It looks wonderful. :thumbsup:

@ Vitalone - I spotted the colour changes in the interior (just proving I'm not colour blind) but I'm impressed with the pick up on the headrests. Proof that I'm one step worse that being an anorak. I'm a wannabe anorak :cry3:

Thanx for the comments and very keen eyes. Few shots with the tan Daytona like seats w/ headrests were the shots of the car as was when I bought it from the previous owner. The car came with the original seats (without headrests) and I had the interior redone when I bought the car. Here's what it looked like when the car arrived. Note the small, old Euro plate. w/ smiles Jimmy
