This "one-off" Fiat Dino Coupé "Daytona" was discovered in a barn by Walter after 30 years of collecting dust. The front lights come from a Rover 3500 Vanden Plas while the rear from a contemporary Ferrari. The bodywork was hand modified making for an interesting shape at both ends.

French Dino For Sale - 9,000 euros. Contact Michel Loulergue: (33)05 55 66 20 88 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Michel says:
"For several years, I used this wonderful car as my only vehicle (I was a film producer, now retired), then I had several Rovers Vandenplas 3500 HDI, which were more roomy and comfortable for family use. I used the Dino as my second car during those years, until someone tried to steal it and broke the direction stand in the process. I then decided to store the Dino in a perfectly watertight barn, where the car was well covered and I would run the engine from time to time. This is how it was stored for the last 10 years. I just changed the direction stand and rebuilt as new the water pump. The car runs beautifully. The bodywork is impeccable, with the exception of two small points of corrosion at the bottom of the front wings. The car can be seen in the center of France near Aubusson 23200 (a very beautiful region with many old villages and castles)."
