Only 52,000m from new Argento Auteil, Sold new by Maranello Concessionaires to Roy Gibson in August 1972. A former custodian of the ex-Peter Sargent / Peter Lumsden Jaguar E-type Lightweight Racer '49 FXN', Gibson was no stranger to high-performance machinery and ordered his Dino finished in understated Argento Auteil (Metallic Silver) with black leather upholstery, headlight covers and opening quarter lights.
Returned to Maranello Concessionaires not just for regular servicing but seemingly as a part-exchange when Gibson bought their ex-demonstrator 365BB, the 246GT appeared in an Autocar magazine article on 16th August 1975.
Treated to a major renovation and engine overhaul in the early 80's with many parts being supplied by Graypaul Motors, the Dino further benefited from a 1992 respray in its factory correct Argento Auteil. Having added just 10k or so miles to the odometer over the course of twenty-five years.
The engine being refurbished Over the years it was regularly MOT tested, the 246GT had yet to clock up 45,000 miles by the time Managing Director of H&H Auctions Simon Hope, bought it in April 2007. The paperwork shows the car has covered a mere 51,000 miles from new and argues that it has been astonishingly well looked after. Indeed, the Dino seemingly retains all its factory paraphernalia such as the original warranty card, handbook, spare parts list, presentation wallet, toolkit, warning triangle, wheel block, window winder and jack.
