Sold new by Maranello Concessionaires to Roy Gibson in August 1972. A former custodian of the ex-Peter Sargent / Peter Lumsden Jaguar E-type Lightweight Racer ’49 FXN’, Gibson was no stranger to high-performance machinery and ordered his Dino finished in understated Argento Auteil (Metallic Silver) with black leather upholstery, headlight covers and opening quarter lights. Returned to Maranello Concessionaires not just for regular servicing but seemingly as a part-exchange when Gibson bought their ex-demonstrator 365BB, the 246GT appeared in an Autocar magazine article comparing it very favourably to the new 308GT4 on 16th August 1975.

Treated to a major renovation and engine overhaul in the early 80’s with many parts being supplied by Graypaul Motors, the Dino further benefited from a 1992 respray in its factory correct Argento Auteil. Having added just 10,000 or so miles to the odometer over the course of twenty-five years. The engine being refurbished with a balanced bottom end, electronic ignition, Cosworth 11:1 pistons and new exhaust manifolds / silencers; while attention was also said to have been paid to the car’s suspension, steering and brakes. Over the years it was regularly MOT tested, the 246GT had yet to clock up 45,000 miles by the time Managing Director of HH Auctions Simon Hope, bought it in April 2007. Simon initially acquired the Ferrari on behalf of an overseas client but ended up taking possession when the deal fell through.
In 2008 also saw the Dino make an appearance at the inaugural Cholmondeley Pageant of Power.

Subtly modified to allow electrical power to be drawn from its cigarette lighter (the original is with the car) for Sat Nav systems and the like, ‘CMJ 320L’ is otherwise to standard specification. The paperwork (including recent correspondence with former keepers) shows the car has covered a mere 51,000 miles from new and argues that it has been astonishingly well looked after. Indeed, the Dino seemingly retains all its factory paraphernalia such as the original warranty card, handbook, spare parts list, presentation wallet, toolkit, warning triangle, wheel block, window winder and jack etc. Riding on correct Cromodora alloys, this desirable 246GT is set apart as much by its ownership history as by its colour scheme and headlight covers. The history file including copies of the original factory confirmation of order, factory invoice, and original sales invoice to Gibson plus a host of early service bills and other paperwork (copy of the 1975 Autocar article)
