Engine Specifications: 3,967 CC SOHC 60° V-12 Engine Three Weber Twin-Choke Carburetors 300 HP at 6,600 RPM 5-Speed Manual Transaxle 4-Wheel Dunlop Disc Brakes 4-Wheel Independent Coil-Spring Suspension About this Car: Presented here is a truly outstanding example of the celebrated 330 GTC, a model that many enthusiasts regard as Ferrari’s most well-rounded gran turismo. In two years of production, 604 examples were built, making the 330 GTC one of the most successful Ferrari road cars of the 1960s. Constructed in fall 1966 and issued a Certificate of Origin on September 23, chassis 8915 was originally specified for European delivery and finished in the understated color scheme of Oro Chiaro with Nero Franzi upholstery. On October 18, 1966, the new 330 GTC was sold to Roberto Righetti of Vicenza, Italy, through official Ferrari concessionaire Dino Ravasio & Figli. As soon as he took delivery, Sig. Righetti sold the new 330 GTC to Teofisto Beniero, a fellow Vicenza resident who owned the car for the remainder of the year. On January 24, 1967, Sig. Beniero sold the Ferrari to Vittorio Carlo Giusto of Padova who in turn sold the car through Dino Armando Genghini to its fourth owner, Cisa Asinari di Alessandro Gresy of Torino, Italy. The 330 GTC remained in the care Sig. Alessandro Gresy until June 1969, when it was acquired by Gian Paolo Schedoni of Modena. During the 1970s, this 330 GTC was exported to the US and by 1979 was owned by University of California Berkeley student and Ferrari Owners Club member Marc Charonnat. The well-kept Ferrari remained in the Bay Area through the 1980s and eventually came into the hands of local collector Gerald Rappaport. In 2008, this 330 GTC was treated to a complete, show-quality restoration performed by the most respected California specialists. The Patrick Ottis Company of Berkeley was commissioned to perform the mechanical restoration, which entailed a complete diagnosis of the chassis and major components. Once disassembled, every aspect of the 330 GTC was inspected and tested before being rebuilt or refurbished to the firm’s famously exacting standards. As evidenced by a glance into the engine bay, this Ferrari has been meticulously restored and authentically detailed throughout with factory-correct textures, fittings, and accessories. With the mechanical restoration underway, the coachwork was entrusted to Brian Hoyt’s Perfect Reflections for concours-quality paintwork. Once the body was stripped to bare metal and prepared to exacting standards, it was finished in the rich, dark red paint it currently wears. As the paint has a non-metallic finish, this 330 GTC has a delightful, period-correct appearance that perfectly complements the elegant Pininfarina design. From there, the Ferrari was transferred to Ken Nemanic’s Vintage Automotive Upholstery, where it was completely reupholstered in biscuit leather with black trim. Carefully maintaining original patterns and authentic details was of great importance, and today the cockpit possesses an inviting, high-quality appearance. In September 2009, the freshly restored 330 GTC was entered in the FCA Vintage Concours at the Danville Concours d’Elegance, where it earned a Platinum Award with an impressive 97-point score. Complementing its successful concours outing, 8915 is also the 330 GTC pictured in Winston Goodfellow’s 2005 book, Ferrari: Road and Racing Cars. Currently displaying less than 70,000 km (approximately 43,500 miles), this 330 GTC is an outstanding representative of a glamorous 1960s Ferrari; it is offered with desirable Borrani wire wheels, as well as a tool roll, jack, and owner’s handbooks. Eligible for many of the great driving events and leading concours, this 330 GTC offers its new owner a wealth of opportunity. This gorgeous 330 GTC must be considered one of the very best among restored examples. We have no doubt that it will impress the most discerning Ferrari collector with its exceptional restoration, striking appearance, and inherent quality.
