Footnotes

  • Based on the highly successful 250 GT, the 250 GTE 2+2 – Ferrari's first production four-seater - provided the basis for its replacement: the 330 GT 2+2 introduced in January 1964. Pininfarina was once again entrusted with the styling, adopting a four-headlamp frontal treatment that reflected the tastes of Ferrari's most important export market, the USA. The 330 GT'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 330 GT's Colombo-type, 60-degree, V12 engine had first appeared in the 330 America (effectively a big-bore 250 GTE 2+2) in 1963. Displacing 3,967cc, the single-overhead-camshaft, all-alloy unit was good for 300-plus horsepower, an output sufficient to propel the 330 GT 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 330 GT gained a five-speed transmission in mid-1965 and later that year had its four headlights replaced by a two-lamp arrangement, these later cars being known as the 'Series II'.

    According to the Ferrari 330 GT Registry, this stunning Series II was delivered new via the Ferrari agent SAVAF of Geneva, Switzerland. Further entries indicate a long spell in California, where it changed hands a few times between 1982 and 1996. In 1996 the car was sold via Garry Roberts & Co to its current Italian owner, a lifelong Ferrari enthusiast. It is also recorded in the Registry that during its time in California the car was painted red with a tan interior, a change from its original 'Argento' (silver) with beige trim.

    Upon its return to Italy, the Ferrari was entrusted to the well-respected restorers, Quality Cars of Vigonza near Padova, for restoration, which included reinstating the original colour scheme of silver with beige leather interior. The car's condition after almost 20 years testifies to the quality of the work, while only recently it has been subjected to a check-up, which included flushing the fuel tank and fuel system. Most importantly, this car retains its original matching-numbers engine. Accompanying documentation consists of Italian registration papers, old importation documents, and a selection of photographs of the restoration.

    After more than 20 years with its present custodian, this most elegant Grand Touring Ferrari is ready for its next owner.

    Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 série 2 coupé 1967
    Carrosserie Pininfarina
    Châssis n° 9793

    •Séduisante série 2 à simples phares
    •Numéros et couleurs concordants
    •Livrée neuve en Suisse
    •Restauration ancienne de grande qualité

    Prenant pour base la très réussie 250 GT, la 250 GTE 2+2 – première Ferrari à quatre places de série – servit de base pour sa remplaçante, la 330 GT 2+2 dévoilée en janvier 1964. Pininfarina avait à nouveau été mis à contribution pour le style, adoptant des doubles optiques pour flatter le goût de la clientèle du plus important marché de Ferrari, les États-Unis. Le châssis tubulaire de la 330 GT avait un empattement 50 mm plus long que précédemment, qui rendait le confort moins mesuré pour les passagers arrière. La suspension indépendante à l'avant était assurée par triangles superposés et ressorts hélicoïdaux, tandis qu'à l'arrière on trouvait un essieu rigide à ressort semis-elliptiques. Les freins aux quatre roues étaient améliorés par des circuits hydrauliques séparés à l'avant et à l'arrière.

    Le moteur V12 Colombo ouvert à 60° de la 330 GT était apparu sur la 330 America (en fait une 250 GTE 2+2 réalésée) en 1963. Avec une cylindrée de 3 967 cm3 ce simple arbre à cames en tête tout en alliage développait plus de 300 ch, largement suffisants pour emmener la 330 GT à une vitesse maximale de 245 km/h qui en faisait, à sa présentation, la plus rapide des Ferrari de route. Équipée à l'origine avec une boîte à quatre rapports et overdrive, la 330 GT reçut une boîte à cinq rapports à la mi-1965 et vit ses quatre phares remplacés par deux phares traditionnels, plus tard dans l'année, devenant ainsi la 2e série.

    Selon le registre 330 GT de Ferrari, cette superbe série 2 a été livrée neuve via l'agent Ferrari SAVAF de Genève, en Suisse. Les autres entrées indiquent un long séjour en Californie où elle a changé de mains à plusieurs reprises entre 1982 et 1996. En 1996, la voiture fut vendue via Garry Roberts & Co à son actuel propriétaire italien, un passionné de Ferrari de longue date. Le registre indique également que lors de son séjour en Californie, la voiture a été peinte en rouge avec un intérieur en cuir fauve, un changement par rapport au gris Argento d'origine avec garnitures intérieures beiges.

    À son retour en Italie, la Ferrari fut confiée aux très respecté spécialiste Quality Cars de Vigonza près de Padoue, pour sa restauration qui comprenait la remise aux teintes originales argent avec intérieur en cuir beige. L'état de la voiture après presque 20 années témoigne de la qualité du travail, puisque c'est seulement récemment qu'on a procédé à une révision qui a inclus le nettoyage du réservoir de carburante et de la ligne d'alimentation. Plus important, cette voiture conserve son numéro de moteur concordant d'origine. La documentation fournie comprend ses papiers d'immatriculation italienne, les anciens documents d'importation et une sélection de photographies de la restauration.

    Après avoir passé plus de 20 années aux mains de son actuel gardien, cette très élégante Ferrari de Grand Tourisme est prête pour un nouveau propriétaire.
