2k: Comes With Trailer: 1970 Magnum Ferrari Dino Kit Car

The Magnum kit car uses a tubular chassis and fiberglass body with air cooled Volkswagen components (probably Beetle, but it isn't entirely clear from a quick interweb search).  However, the fiberglass body does a decent job of looking like a real Ferrari and this would look great in your garage to make your neighbors think you are a big deal.  Find this 1970 Magnum Ferrari Dino Kit Car offered for $2,200 in Carmel Valley, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Gianni who writes:  I’m surprised this didn’t get snapped up during Monterey Car Week.

This Dino kit car actually looks somewhat cool sitting on a trailer.  At first glance it could be mistaken for some long lost factory Ferrari that will be restored and sold under the hypnotic lights of an auction for profit...or maybe it is the Bartles & James speaking...

What is that animal that looks half in/out of the license plate area?


  1. This would have been great at concours d'lemons.
    There is always funny sh*t there.

  2. The taxidermy needs to stay, and get complimented with a two stroke. Then it will go: Ring-a-ding-ding-ding-ding.

    If I owned this, every time I walked in the garage I would have to say (In my best Higgins voice) - "For God's sake, Magnum!"

  4. It is a decent likeness, but I would have to put the engine midsection with a bonnet to match.
    That's a Jag mark X in the background
