Unable to produce sufficient numbers of its newly designed 2 litre ‘quad cam’ V6 engine to satisfy the FIA’s homologation requirements for Formula 2 usage, Ferrari entered into a marriage of expediency with FIAT during the mid-1960s. The result was a series of ‘Dino’ badged models across both marques; the name being a tribute to Enzo Ferrari’s son Alfredo who had sadly died in 1956 at the age of just twenty-four. The first Fiat Dino, a Pininfarina-penned Spider, debuted in 1966. Joined the following year by a Bertone-styled Coupe, the duo shared their ‘heart’ with the Ferrari Dino 206GT and boasted 120mph plus performance. Assembly of the Dino Spider and Coupe moved from Fiat to Ferrari during 1969. The Maranello-built cars benefited from a number of amendments including: a switch to independent coil-sprung rear suspension, superior braking and cooling, the fitment of a new 5-speed ZF gearbox and an increase in engine capacity to 2.4 litres (the latter mirrored by the Ferrari Dino 246GT). Some 2,414 Fiat Dino 2400 Coupes were made.
Reportedly boasting known ownership history from new, chassis 0004302 was imported from Umbria in 1989. Said to be highly original with no obvious signs of past welding repairs, the Fiat is further understood to pleasingly retain its original interior complete with factory plastic sill protectors. Treated to a respray approximately twenty years ago, the Coupe is apparently still in good cosmetic order with minimal evidence of corrosion. Old MOTs on file date back to 1994 at an indicated 51,416km and thus lend credence to the current odometer reading of 88,000km (c.55,000 miles) perhaps representing the total covered from new. Rated by the vendor as being in ‘good’ (bodywork, paintwork) or ‘very good’ (engine, five-speed manual gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim) condition, 'ALG 134J' is being offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, original tool kit and owner’s handbook.
