At the age of 24, Enzo Ferrari's son, Alfredo 'Dino' Ferrari (a trained engineer), passed away tragically, just as he was making a case for performance-oriented six-cylinder engines for the company's racing efforts. Just before his tragic demise, Dino had discussed the technical details of a small V-6 engine with Ferrari engineer Vittorio Jano.

The V-6 would make it into production as a 1,987-cubic centimeter unit, which allowed Ferrari to qualify for Formula Two racing. The small engine was abnormal for the company, but so was the mid-engine configuration. Enzo Ferrari was convinced in part by Sergio Pininfarina himself, and allowed a prototype to be built. The design was met well received, and shortly thereafter, a prototype called the Dino 206 GT was born. It was first displayed at the 1965 Paris Motor Show, before being updated for the 1966 Turin Salon, and then it was put into production in 1968, as the company's first mid-engined model.

The Dino nomenclature was a tribute to Enzo's son. The cars lacked Ferrari badging and their engines were assembled under Fiat's watch, but they were Ferraris through-and-through. The engines would later make their way into the revolutionary road-going Lancia Stratos.

In 1969, the Dino's V-6 was enlarged to 2,418 cubic centimeters, giving the 206 its new 246 nomenclature. The 65-degree motor had an iron block with alloy heads. The cars destined for the North American market produced an impressive 175 horsepower. This was a rather high figure during the emissions-strangled mid-1970s. The European, full-breathing engines produced about 20 more horsepower.

Most of the Dino 206 GTs remained in Italy, while the 246 GT was better marketed globally. In 1972, the open-top GTS Spider was introduced. Although the 246 GT Dino was Ferrari's best seller to date, fewer than 3,800 were produced before production came to a close in 1974.

This particular car is a 1972 Dino 246 GTS and has been a California car since new. It has passed through just owners in its 41-year history. The car was delivered with both air conditioning and power windows. It has recently been given an engine-out restoration, with approximately $85,000 spent on the restoration.

The car is finished in the correct Giallo Fly paint scheme over a rich black leather interior.
