Originally finished in Blu Dino Metalizzato over a Beige interior and completed in October of 1973, this E-Series Dino 246 GTS was shipped from Maranello to Bill Harrahs Modern Classic Motors of Reno, Nevada. Its original owner was Gary Nolan Buck of Oklahoma, who took delivery in early 1974, but the following year it was purchased by Gary Castor.
A U.S. Navy pilot, Castor enjoyed his Dino not only in Virginia, but also while on deployment in Naples, Italy. Castor moved to San Diego at some point and continued to drive the car until 1989, when the car was involved in a road accident and subsequently becoming parked in his garage. It sat unrepaired until it was purchased by William and Carol Biggs of Kelseyville, California, in 1999. The Biggs repaired and restored the car, retaining ownership until 2013, at which point it was sold and subsequently shipped to the UK for a full restoration.
At this point, chassis no. 06290 is awaiting its finishing touches. The engine and gearbox have been fully rebuilt, along with the suspension, brakes, and steering. It is believed that the restoration is largely complete and, at present, is awaiting paintwork and final assembly.
