Evaluation: Represented as 39,025 miles from new. Very good older color change repaint with scant evidence of road miles. Very good chrome. The upholstery and interior trim are original and sound with surface creases and some soiling. The chassis is original with some service replacement parts like bushings. Shows road use, scrapes, and surface rust appropriate to the stated mileage. Good gauges and dash top. The engine compartment is clean and dry. A fine low mileage example.
Bottom Line: Sold by Gooding in 2013 at Scottsdale for $291,500. Seven years later, it’s still worth about the same, which speaks volumes about the 246 GT market. The originality of this Dino is compromised by the repaint from the original Marrone in oh-so-conventional Rosso Chiaro over beige leather, which detracts from its value. The result here is all the money, a conclusion demonstrated by the fact it sat at the $250,000 final bid for over an hour with no late bidding at all.
