barn find ferrari dino

just watched this car go through silverstone classic car auction. Thought it would be fun to see some guesses of what price it made. The story of the car is as follows.

Presented from a deceased estate, Silverstone Auctions are pleased to offer a truly unique chance to acquire a garage find 1973 Ferrari Dino that has been hidden away since 1975.
This two-owner car is showing a believed genuine mileage of 13,932. Finished in the rare Verdi Pino colour (with rust brown details) with optional headlight covers and with contrasting Tan interior. Delivered new to Kirkcaldy, the first owner kept the car for just one year before selling it to the current deceased owner in 1974.
He was a well-known Motorcycle racer, who used to drive like he was racing on a track everywhere he went. Allegedly, the story of how the car became forgotten was that he was driving home in the Ferrari at his usual breakneck pace when the police caught up with him, well tried to at least.... He outran the police, raced straight home, parked it in the garage and feared using the car for some time. In the mean time he purchased a new car and soon the Dino was forgotten.
It stood in the garage for a further 39 years until it saw the daylight once again. As you have probably expected, the idea of finding a low owner, low mileage rare optioned Ferrari Dino with an interesting story of being untouched for the last 39 years is, unfortunately, too good to be true. A leaky garage roof has meant the car has suffered from a severe case of what some may call water staining whilst others would say its simply rotten as a pear. Whatever choice words you used to describe the car, as you can see from the images it is in need of a total restoration.
That being said offered with a current V5C and without reserve, with the prices of Ferrari Dinos continuing to rise in leaps and bounds it is surely a worthwhile project for someone who wants a unique Dino that is a genuine barn find.

Add another £100000 to that.
There was also a mint 1971 Dino which made £247000.

I'm sure there was one of these or similar just parked on the road near me for years? Tbh i never paid much attention to it, it was weathered and had poorly inflated tyres, I just assumed it was junk.

Then not so long ago I realised what it could have been and went to see if it was still there. It's gone Maybe some old lady inherited it when her husband died and had not a clue about it.

50k-60k on a decent restoration. Much more for a concourse car. There is still money to be made if it goes for over 100k

edit: just looked at the pictures, not a lot of metal left in the important areas. I think someone would need some deep pockets and then a bit more.

I would think it would be circa 45-55k in its current state. 100k to 150k depending on the quality of the restoration
