1974 Ferrari Dino 308 GT4
Dino: the non-V12 Ferrari
The chassis was a tubular spaceframe based on the Dino 246, but was stretched for a 2.550 mm wheelbase to make room for the second row of seats. The suspension was fully independent, with double wishbones, anti-roll bars, coaxial telescopic shock absorbers and coil springs on both axles. Niki Lauda helped set up the chassis.
The 3.0 L (2.927 cc) V8 was mounted transversally integrally joined with the 5-speed transaxle gearbox. The engine had an aluminium alloy block and heads, 16-valves and dual overhead camshafts driven by toothed belts; it produced 255 hp in the European version and 240 hp in the American. The induction system used four Weber 40 DCNF carburetors.
Our Ferrari Dino 308 GT4
This Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 was originally supplied through famous Garage Francorchamps in Bruxelles, Belgium. The car was delivered in May 1974. The car first registration was on August 27 of that same year. A very early car and therefore the car wears the correct Dino badges.
In 2014, the car was acquired by the last owner. He had the car serviced at his local specialist, before he started to think about a nut and bold restoration to concours winning standards in 2016. The car was completely dismantled, all paint was removed, the body immersed in an acid bath. We have never seen a Dino that was restored back to this level. From there the body was completely restored and repainted in its beautiful shade of Giallo Modena. Hundred of photographs were taken at each stage of the restoration. The mechanics were completely restored, back to original – Ferrari Classiche – specification. During the restoration the people had periodically contact with official Ferrari dealer Kroymans to align this Classiche process. We have to big binders with invoices and other documentation. Total costs were around 160,000 EUR. This might be the absolute best Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 available in todays market.
This Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 is for sale. The car is ready for inspection in our collection in Burgerveen, The Netherlands. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further details.
