Daniel Schmitt & Co. Classic Car Gallery Acquires Rare 1973 Dino Targa by Ferrari; Now For Sale

LOUIS, MO — April 15, 2024 – Daniel Schmitt & Co. Classic Car Gallery in St. Louis announces it has acquired several rare vehicles including a rare 1973 Dino 246 GTS Targa built by Ferrari. The vehicle is one of only 1,274 produced and is in excellent restored condition.


The vehicle was just released from a world-class collection and has been meticulously maintained to the highest standards. The Dino features a rare color combination of a Sabbia leather interior with a satin black removable Targa top, one of only 63 manufactured.


“The Dino sports cars were named in honor of Enzo Ferrari’s son, Alfredino, who designed a dual overhead-camshaft V6 engine for both road and racing use before tragically passing away from muscular dystrophy at the age of 24,” said Daniel Schmitt, owner of Daniel Schmitt & Co. Classic Car Gallery.


“In his honor, Enzo created a brand in his son’s name to compete with smaller and less-expensive sports cars than the traditional 12-cylinders,” said Schmitt. “The Dino line competed with the likes of Porsche with the same Italian style, flair, and drama of the parent company.”


Schmitt has also procured a 1993 Jaguar XSJ220 Coupe in like-new condition. Once the world’s fastest production vehicle, reaching over 200 miles per hour, the car has only 4,308 actual miles. The vehicle has been fully recommissioned for $105,000 at the Jaguar Heritage Center in England.


The Jaguar is one of only 283 built, drives and performs flawlessly and features a panoramic glass roof.


A 1962 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II is also available from Schmitt. The Drophead Coupe by H.J. Mulliner drives like new, with only 44,637 actual miles. The Rolls is one of 74 left-hand drive examples built by Mulliner.


“All of these vehicles are rare to find with outstanding investment potential,” Schmitt added. “They are highly serviced and ready to be driven or showcased, truly a great addition to any collection.”
