    Hi All,
    I have a 73 euro GT that I picked up years and years ago. It was damaged and was being parted out when I got it. I had worked on the frame and was ready to install a new front and rear clip when I lost interest. After seeing omgjon's Dino restoration I dragged it out and am thinking about starting it again. I've replaced most of the missing parts but the real killer is that I'm missing the engine/transmission and half shafts! I've made a few calls but have had no luck....was hoping someone here might have some suggestions?

    We have a E-series gearbox which is completely overhauled and all parts to rebuild an E-Series engine.

    Please contact me if you are interested.

    I can probably help too. Do you want a rebuilt engine or a kit of parts? If you're not feeling too purist a 308 transmission can be adapted. PM with your email.

    Tom,

    do you have a dino drive train or two perhaps laying about that big old yard of yours?

    the OP is in California, you could be his salvation.

    Wasn't there at least 1 Dino converted to a V8 from a 3x8?

    Might be a way to get the thing moving while hunting the right parts.

    Many beautiful FIAT Dino's have been sacrificed just to keep a Ferrari Dino on the road, its a shame unless its a FIAT Coupe :)

    Do you have a web address (URL)? Always willing to learn more, especially when it's about Dutch Ferraris. Thanks.

    Best regards, Peter
