1,987cc DOHC V6 Engine 3-Weber Carburetors 162bhp at 7,200rpm 5-Speed Manual Transmission Independent Front Suspension by Coil Springs, Semi-Elliptic Leaf Rear Suspension 4-Wheel Disc Brakes *Much mechanical work completed in this ownership *Iconic representation of the model *Rare example *Great sporting open Italian car THE FIAT DINO Although perennially in the shadow of Ferrari's Dino model, the Fiat Dinos represent an important intermediate milestone on the way to a six-cylinder Ferrari. Named after Enzo's late son Alfredo "Dino" Ferrari, who is credited with inspiring the design of the V6 powerplant, Dino was originally to be a marque name in its own right. Intended as a lower-priced, entry-level Ferrari, the mid-engine car arrived for 1968. Dino Ferrari died in 1956, after a long battle with muscular dystrophy. The Dino car became a memorial to him, its engine brought to reality by Alfa Romeo's renowned engineer Vittorio Jano. Enzo Ferrari, meanwhile, desired to use the engine for Formula 2 competition, which required 500 production vehicles for homologation. Thus was born the front-engine Fiat Dino, of which some 1,650 were built between 1966 and 1969. Road-going adaptation of what was basically a racing engine was undertaken by Fiat's Aurelio Lampredi. Produced at Turin, the dohc 1,987 cc aluminum powerplant was rated at 160 PS (158 bhp), and backed up by a five-speed manual gearbox. Front suspension was by control arms and coil springs; at the rear a live axle rode on single-leaf semi-elliptics. Wheelbase was 88.8 inches. A Pininfarina spyder was introduced at the Turin Motor Show in 1966; a year later a four-seat, extended-wheelbase coupe, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and built by Bertone, was shown at Geneva. THE MOTORCAR OFFERED According to information supplied by Wally Clark of the FIAT Dino register this car was formerly on the West Coast with a Mr. Sarabia or California. It later migrated East into the Collection of Paul J. Burt, from who the current custodian acquired the FIAT. Residing in its present ownership for the last four years, during this time the car has been systematically mechanically refreshed by its enthusiast owners. Within the first two years of ownership this work has included rebuilding the engine, transmission, carburetors, and starter, with much of the work carried out by engine specialist Terry Myr and detail work by Concours judge and expert Adam Hammer. The maintenance has been continuous with an extensive refresh of the engine by George Evans of Evans Automotive in Columbus, Ohio being completed more recently. In addition, the electrics have also received additional been gone through. All of this was completed with the aim of putting the car into good usable order. Finished in traditional Italian Rosso livery, the overall presentation of the car is reported to be very good and heightened by recent refreshing of the chrome trim.
