Happy 40th Birthday 01464

On this day in 1971 Dino 246GT #01464 was completed in Maranello Italy. What followed was a test drive though the Modena countryside followed by a long trip by boat, rail, and truck to Yonge Steeles Motors in Toronto Canada. Today, 40 years on, 01464 remains a resident of Toronto and is in the midst of a full restoration to its original splendor.

Below are some historical images chronicling the bodies at the Scaglietti Coachworks, followed by some of the Dino assembly stages, and lastly 01464 today apart and awaiting media blasting.

Grazie e Buon Compleanno
