Ferrari Dino 246 GT Found Underground Mystery

Question. How Did a Ferrari End Up Buried in soil underground in a Back garden?

In the 1970s, a Ferrari Dino 246 GT was found underground in a Los Angeles back garden. To this date the story behind how this vehicle ended up there remains a mystery, but based on some fact that we have we can make a pretty solid assumption. This is not how we would recommend you to treat an Italian supercar, why steal a supercar only to bury it?

The Ferrari Dino was produced from 1968 to 1976 and is classed as a lower cost supercar as it had less that 12 cylinders. The Ferrari Dino was made in the Fiat factory and so struggled back in the day to be recognised as a true Ferrari, however in the modern era it is well and truly accepted as a Ferrari. It would have cost you around $22,000 back in the day, around £14,500.

This particular Dino 246 GT was discovered by kids playing in the mud, and was then dug up and the full Dino was revealed.

Unfortunately though, the car had seen better days, the alloys were destroyed, rust on all panels, seats ruined as the earth attempted to reclaim a piece of Italian supercar history.

The car was bought by a plumber for his wife and was the registered as stolen, when the car was unearthed, it was covered in towels & plastic - in the hope that this would preserve the Dino until it could be retrieved.

The theives were never caught, and to this day it remains a mystery as to why they never came back for it.
