    I'm always on the look out for another Dino project. As they seem to be getting scarcer and scarcer I snatched this 2 owner car up. It's a 73 USA car not bad overall condition with original specs Nocciola with black interior but like most it was painted red in the 80's. This is a two owner car, tubi exhaust and repro Campagnolo wheels. I plan on driving it until I get around to another full restoration. I just turned 70 and plan to do at least one per year for the next 10 years. When I hit 80 I might cut back a bit!

    Boy that's a tough one on the color. I like nocciola and the orange color looks great too. I guess originality should rule but the orange really pops!

    I know this one. You got it for a professor in Hawaii. Almost pulled the trigger on that one.

    I don't really care about original color as long as you use a period correct color. i'm just going to drive it for awhile as i have 2 to finish before I get to this. It was owned by an 80 year old professor in Hawaii. I was there for vacation last April and on a whim I went to see it at his house. It took 6 months to make a deal. He's a tough Norwegian!! Overall it's pretty decent car for my purposes.

    Those Norwegians are some really tough hard balls. I too negotiated for 6 month with a Norwegian before I was approved worthy of buying His Dino with close to zero discount. They don't sell for the money...-:)


    Best, Peter
