1974 Dino 246 GTS VIN:07920 On August 30, 1974, Eddie Lucchesi, a 61 year old, well know Stockton, CA farmer walked into Modern Classic Motors in Reno, NV and laid down $18,319.48. That considerable amount of money was purchasing Eddies dream, a brand new Dino 246 GTS. On that summers day almost 38 years ago a lifelong relationship was started, one that would continue uninterrupted for the next 37 years. Eddie and the little red sports car were inseparable, but rather than driving the car he preferred to admire it. He housed the Dino in an environmentally controlled garage, protecting it from sun and the elements, showing it only occasionally to friends and relatives. In this manner the Dino could last forever, but as we are not made of steel and solder, Eddie past away last year at the age of 98. Part of his legacy is one of the most pristine, perfect, and original Dinos in existence. At the time of Eddies passing he had only driven the Dino 3314 miles. In 37 years he had spent less than a week driving the car. Some may call that a tragedy, others will see it as a triumph. To understand the relationship all you have to do is look at the paperwork that comes with the car. Eddie kept everything. From his original notes while working out the deal, to every envelope sent from the dealer. The original invoice and sales slips are preserved along with registration forms and the dealers brochure. Eddie didnt just own the car, he curated it. Upon its arrival at Canepa we recognized this Dino as a very special car. We have never seen such an original 246, in what can only be called as-new condition. Every facet of the car has been gone over, and it has been put through a suite of services to make sure it is 100% both mechanically and cosmetically. This Dino is the royal flush of car collecting: one-owner, low mileage, original, unmolested, and operational. One of only 313 Dino GTSs that were produced in 1974, and complete down to its tools, jack, manuals, and original sales paperwork, this car is an unique opportunity to continue a 38 year tradition of meticulous ownership and care.
