Footnotes

  • By the end of the 1950s, the market for sports cars with 'family accommodation' had grown sufficiently for Ferrari to contemplate the introduction of a four-seater model. Introduced in the summer of 1960, the first such Ferrari - the 250GTE 2+2 - was based on the highly successful 250GT. Pininfarina's brief had been to produce a 2+2 without sacrificing the 250's elegant good looks or sporting characteristics, and the master carrozzier succeeded brilliantly, moving the engine, gearbox, and steering gear forward and the fuel tank back, thus creating sufficient room for two occasional rear seats.

    The 250GTE provided the basis for its replacement: the 330GT 2+2 introduced in January 1964. Pininfarina was once again entrusted with the styling, adopting of a four-headlamp frontal treatment that reflected the tastes of Ferrari's most important export market, the USA. The 330GT's tubular chassis was 50mm longer in the wheelbase than before, which made conditions less cramped for the rear passengers. Suspension was independent at the front by wishbones and coil springs, while at the back there was a live axle/semi-elliptic set-up. Improvements to the discs-all-round braking system saw separate hydraulic circuits adopted for front and rear.

    The 330GT's Colombo-type, 60-degree, V12 engine had first appeared in the 330 America (effectively a big-bore 250GTE 2+2) in 1963. Displacing 3,967cc, the single-overhead-camshaft, all-alloy unit was good for 300-plus bhp, an output sufficient to propel the 330GT to a maximum velocity of 152mph (245km/h) making it, when introduced, the fastest road-going Ferrari. Equipped at first with a four-speeds-plus-overdrive gearbox, the 330GT gained a five-speed transmission in mid-1965 and later that year had its four-headlight front end replaced by a two-lamp arrangement, becoming the 'Series 2'. Electric windows, alloy wheels and hanging control pedal were other Series 2 improvements. A favourite of Enzo Ferrari, who used one as his personal transport, the 330GT was the first of his cars to sell in excess of 1,000 units.

    Right-hand drive chassis number '6201' was imported into Britain by Maranello Concessionaires, the official importer and registered as 'EPH 3B'. According to the 330 GT Registry printout on file, the car was first owned by a Major Nicholas Daniel, the second owner being recorded as Jaguar Cars, which had acquired the Ferrari for evaluation. The next owner listed is Jaguar employee Robert F Blake, the American responsible for the design of the fixed-head coupe E-Type, who was also involved with the Briggs Cunningham operation, who acquired the Ferrari in the late 1960s and fully restored it. Bob Blake kept the car for some nine years.

    The next owner identified by the Register is one Fraser J Mills, from the late 1990s, followed by the current vendor, who acquired the Ferrari in 2004. Benefiting from a recent full re-spray by DK Engineering in its original Bleu Sera livery, 'EPH 3B' is described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition, with good interior. Accompanying documentation consists of the 1960s restoration invoices, an old-style logbook, original paperwork, all expired MoT certificates, V5 document and MoT to July 2015.
