Going Soon: 1967 Fiat Dino

1967 Fiat Dino 2

This Fiat might be ending in only a few hours, but I think it might be worth taking a quick look at. It’s in rough shape, but comes with its original 2.0 liter V6 and many other important bits. Bidding is already to $9,600, which might seem like a lot of money for an old Fiat project, but these cars have been going up in value and I’m sure there is that much value in parts alone. I’d love to see this one saved, but I won’t be surprised if the next owner parts it out. That Ferrari designed V6 is worth considerable money by itself. If I had the money, I’d love to have this one to restore, sadly I don’t think I can afford it! If you’re like me and love these fun little Italians, you can find this one here on eBay in Roseville, California, but be sure to act fast!

    What a great looking car.

    Shame the seller didn’t post any interior pics. I’d love to restore this but I don’t think I have that kind of money.

      Scroll down for interior pics, but don’t get your hopes up.

    Too little information, too little time. Someone may get a good car though.

    I think the car was originally yellow! It’s not actually that bad. Bet it could be brought back fairly easily.

    Looks like I’m the odd one out on this poor Dino. These are Fiats, with a Fiat-produced V6 that Dino Ferrari contributed to the design of. It doesn’t have anything like the appeal of a Ferrari to buyers.

    They made almost 6,000 of the Coupes, so they are not too scarce. The Coupes are 3 times more plentiful than the Spiders, and have less than 1/3rd the value of the average Spider. And this is the 2 liter version, not the more desirable 2.4 liter.

    This car is very scary because it needs everything, and that will be very expensive. The SCM Guide has the median auction price paid for all Coupes at $45K, and the 2.0 liter Coupes will average below that.

    If this was a Spider it would be a good buy because the median auction price paid for Spiders is $160K. But then the bid would be a lot higher than it is for this Coupe.

    Unless someone already has some spare parts, good car resto skills of all kinds, and lots of time on their hands, I see this coupe as probably a parts car, unfortunately, even at the current $9,700 bid.

    I really like these Bertone coupes. I think the styling is a far better composition than the Pininfarina designed spyder. Yes, I know the market disagrees, but that spyder front end isn’t something I would like to see every time I open the garage. But the lines on this coupe just work right, especially in the flesh – – I’ve been smitten with them since I spotted one sitting in a used car lot oh-so-many on my way to high school one morning. And that was before I knew what was under the hood.

    Although these are not Ferrari built, I do believe all Dino engines are the same regardless if they wound up in a Fiat or a 206/246 Dino (aka: Ferrari Dino).

    I agree with Dolphin that the 2.4 is a far better car. It’s not just the engine, but it has a better transmission, better suspension, fixed a lot of the errors discovered in the 2.0 cars, etc.

    Unfortunately I just don’t see this car as winding up as anything other than a parts car, or more likely it will be stripped of its engine and the remains resold as a paper weight.

    1967… 2 Liters spread among 6 cylinders, and breathing through DOHC cylinder heads. If the bottom end is at all robust, modern cam profiles, fuel injection and ignition = significantly improved power and drivability. Better as 2.4? Think of the possible spots for such a nice little package!

    Oh… the rest of the car? Yea, nice too.
