1969 Ferrari Dino 206 GT by Scaglietti

  • Chassis no. 00362

Sold for $627,000


  • One of 153 examples built; considerably more rare than the 246 GT
  • Formerly owned by several well-known Ferrari collectors
  • Offered with original manuals, including warranty booklet, and rare parts catalogue
  • Exquisitely maintained example of the rare, early alloy-bodied Dino


According to the research of marque historian Marcel Massini, chassis number 00362 is the 132nd of 153 Dino 206 GTs built. Clothed with an alloy body by Scaglietti, the Dino was completed by the factory in February 1969, finished in Giallo Fly over Nero.

In March 1969, the Ferrari was distributed to Motor S.a.S. di Carla Allegretti in Rome. Allegretti may have been the selling agent when the car was acquired in 1970 and imported to the United States by Serge Dermanian, a very well-known Ferrari mechanic who formerly managed the famed collections of Peter Sachs and fashion designer Ralph Lauren.

In 1976, the Dino was acquired by Peter Regna of Ramsey, New Jersey, an engineer who is best known for patenting the modern fuel-cell bladder. His company, Aero Tec Laboratories, is the major supplier of such fuel cells to Formula 1 teams. Apparently, his interest in fuel-cell development originated when his Austin-Healey caught fire from leaking gas during an SCCA race in the late 1960s.

The 206 GT was sold in 1983 to marque collector Ralph Manaker, then of Manlius, New York, who also owned a 275 GTB/4 and a 512 BBi, and kept the Dino until at least 1985. By 1995 the Ferrari was acquired by Michael Sheehan’s European Auto Restoration in Costa Mesa, California, and treated to a substantial refurbishment that included a repaint in rosso. Chassis number 00362 was then sold in early 1996 to Japanese collector Noriyuki Ishizuka. He went on to display the car at the Japanese Ferrari Club’s 10th anniversary Forza Ferrari at the Suzuka circuit, drawing class recognition and winning the Cornes Award.

In October 2014 the Dino was offered for sale, claiming a recent restoration that had since accrued only 900 kilometers. Purchased then by the consignor, the Ferrari continues to display the benefits of a very comprehensive overhaul, with the cosmetic details still presenting beautifully. The engine bay has been detailed, the paint emits a deep finish, and all chrome has been fastidiously polished, while the proper Nero leatherette and a wood-rimmed steering wheel (a correct element of 206 cars that disappeared with the ensuing 246 versions) exudes authenticity.

Currently displaying 1,288 kilometers, this outstanding Dino offers the purest and most handsome interpretation of the design. The rare alloy-bodied coupe is accompanied by original users manuals, a warranty and maintenance booklet, and a rare parts catalogue.
