    According to Marcel Massini and Mathias Bartz (Dino Compendium) my GTS is the first USA spec'ed GTS imported into the USA. ID tag states March 1972. I've owned the car for over 20 years and it's time to pass it on to another enthusiast. Has won several awards:

    2000-Concorso Italiano, Monterey, CA.- Silver award in Class 5 (dinos)

    2000- Newport Beach Concorso, Newport Beach, CA.- 1st place (late Ferrari)

    2000-Huntington Beach Concorso, Huntington Beach, CA- shown, not judged.

    2019- Tucson Auto Show, Tucson, AZ.- 3rd place (Foreign/imports)

    Very straight mostly original example; NO RUST ever!
    More detail and photos will be forthcoming when I put this on Bring a Trailer very soon.
    Asking $425k OBO.

    This stunning car is now on Bring a Trailer and the reserve is much lower than the $425k I stated in my previous post.

    Nice showing but the COV-19 outbreak couldn't have happened at more poorly timed event for this sale.
    Spring is here and car sales will be climbing as we approach Monterey, forza

    An incredibly beautiful car, I watched it go through BaT and was thinking of bidding but it approached my upper limit of my budget, I guess it did not sell in the end although worth more than what it got to for sure. I am looking for a GT or GTS but a little rougher condition (and sub 275k all in) so I can do some work and restoration with my kids . GLWS

    hi Powerm99; yes i'm still interested but the market has taken a hit due to cv-19 and i'm not willing to discount the car; don't have to sell; will most likely put the car into the Scottsdale auctions next jan.

    Simply my observation re BaT & COVID-19; Agree that 'early' in the pandemic, prices suffered...say thru second week of April. Yet, since then, BaT has brought excellent results for most cars; perhaps not the "Premium" auction listing, yet see strong results for most & with some truly surprising to the upside; granted, not all FCars...yet better than I would have thought given the fear w/c gripped the NE& Western regions of the country.

    Doesn't hurt NYSE has been ripping too thru April.....
    List it again?

    hi jack,
    I just saw your post; I don't go on fchat regularly.
    my gts is still for sale at a reasonable price.
    to be 100% honest; I had a BaT reserve on the gts of $340k
    if anyone is interested AT THAT PRICE; (sorry; not negotiating) pls contact me.

    Gorgeous combination and now with the market appearing to rebound should make this Dino look like great value

    Great point.
    When The Fed says it will intentionally let interest rise, they are looking to inflate away our debt and tangibles are destined to rise in price
    But then again, I just paid $47 for a sheet of plywood in Seattle (Riots + De-Funding police...)

    Now may be a good time to have assets rather than cash and This Dino has followed the rising trend that I feel parallels the 275 GTB.


    One thing I really like about this car is how the PininFarina design features are finished off. Look at the headlight surround and the intake vent on each hip; how it goes from a single point to twin crisp lines. Some nice finer points on this Dino.

    Should A/C be an issue, every part can be sourced with new ones to make it 100% operational.

    This beautiful dino is about to be relisted by Bring a Trailer in the next week or so with a lower reserve than the original listing last year.
    once the auction goes live i'll put a link on fchat to the bat listing
    Happy bidding.
