Back in 1971, Ferrari revealed the targa-roof iteration of the Dino 246 GTS. The removable top added a new approach and appeal to the ride, which only added 44 pounds. Today we get a look at a beautiful 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS Convertible, which left the factory on September 11th, 1973. The vehicle was delivered to William F. Harrah’s distributorship and then on to Ron Tonkin showroom in Portland, Oregon. It was eventually sold to Tonkin’s cousin in San Francisco, who put 48,000 miles over two decades up and down California’s coast.
From there, the vehicle went on to spend time in Japan and Switzerland, making this a well-traveled Dino. The car was originally finished in Giallo Fly yellow over a grey interior, though it has been refinished in black. The ride also boasts all-important Ferrari Classiche certification, though the motor has been replaced with the correct in-period unit from another car. This vehicle is something special and certainly something worth adding to your fleet.
