A buddy of mine has two Fiat Dino Coupes for sale. One is complete and running well. Another is included as a parts car. Asking price is $9,995. Seller is very motivated as he needs to make space. Seller is a very trusted Alfa Romeo mechanic.
Watch the original version of "The Italian Job" for some great shots and sounds - the Mafia boss cruises around in a black Dino Coupe. Warning though, be prepared to cringe as they trash (in real life, without special effects) a Lamborghini Miura, Aston Martin DB4, a couple of Jaguar XKE's and a whole bunch of Mini Coopers and Alfa Giulia police cars - and I mean trashed in graphic, violent ways. The Aston Martin and XKE's get done in by a front loader.
It almost hurts to watch it now days
Edit: found a clip on YouTube - for mature audiences only!
If only it were possible, I absolutely lust, adore crave a Dino coupe. I have wanted to have one for over 20 years but I still lack the means to acquire one. I still say to myself, one day! I actually like the looks of the coupe over the spider, but perhaps that is just me.
These cars IMHO are so undervalued and appreciated, which as a hopeful buyer is good, but still, basically they are the most affordable "Ferrari" one can buy.
Having had a number of rides in a 246 GT I know just how intoxicating the engine sounds under full power. Simply spine tingling.
To me the price of these two cars is not expensive, as I know from watching the prices of the relatively few Fiat Dinos out here in Aus have gone from total restoration cars for sale at around $10k to nicely sorted ones, and I am only talking of coupes for around $40K. Grrr one day
