Ordered from The Ferrari factory at Modena on 6th December 1971 as a white car with black interior.
Delivered to Maranello Concessionaires UK on 18th February 1972
Supplied to Chipstead of Kensington around 28th February 1972
1st Owner – Mrs Valerie Scouler kept the vehicle until December 1984 when it was sold with 29549 miles on the clock.
The Car was maintained by Maranello and Emblem Sports cars during this ownership.
2nd Owner - the M.D. of Bramshaw Garage in Hampshire
A full detailed restoration of the vehicle was carried out during 1985 for which the new owner required the repair of the body to new specification. Any rusty panels were replaced with new, rather than repaired.
Body panels replaced included: 2 new doors, 2 wings, 1 front panel, 2 sill panels, 2 inner sills, 2 step cills, Windscreen, rear screen, quarter lights, all window runners. Judging by the invoices, mechanical work undertaken seems to have been mainly routine maintenance and replacement of worn ancillary components.
Vehicle was re-trimmed with the current interior of red/black., new headlining, door trims carpets etc.
The Car was resprayed Red on completion of the restoration work
3rd Owner - Tierra Blanca Collection - acquired the car April 1989 – The closest MOT to that time shows a Mileage of 32724
The car was given a personalised number plate and featured on the cover and in the Book- Ferrari Dino, by Anthony Curtis
There are many invoices detailing mechanical items overhauled/replaced during this ownership, most of which were undertaken by Maranello
The car remained in this ownership until I acquired it in May 1999 showing a mileage of 34500
4th owner – Current.
On acquisition I overhauled the brake system , subsequently all routine maintenance has been carried out by ex-Maranello technician Neil Lucas of Neil Lucas Sports cars, with no major repairs required.
The red paintwork that had been undertaken by the previous owners was of a fairly poor standard, and while there were no specific defects such as rust or bubbling, the actual surface was poorly finished and let the car down, so in 2001 I commissioned Italia Autosport in Yorkshire to strip the car back to bare metal (see photos), and repaint it in the original period Rosso Chiara.
Since then the car has been garaged and maintained to a high standard.
