300 bhp, 3,967 cc overhead camshaft V-12 engine, three Weber 40 DCZ/6 dual-choke carburettors, four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive, independent front suspension with upper and lower A-arms, coil springs and anti-roll bar, rigid rear axle with parallel trailing arms and semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,650mm (104.2 in.)

The 330 GT 2+2 evolved from the 250 GTE but was a significantly different Ferrari, with a 50 mm longer wheelbase chassis. The 330 GT 2+2’s single overhead camshaft motor was based on a stretched block but otherwise carried forward the refined and developed concepts of the Colombo-designed Ferrari V-12. The first series of 330 GT 2+2s adopted a four-headlight configuration with smaller driving lights placed inboard of the headlights in a tapered fender recess – a design element that was eventually replaced with a second series of single-headlight cars beginning in 1965.

The left-hand drive Series I 330 GT 2+2 offered here, 6397, was completed on 15 October 1964. Its first owner was Mrs. Madeleine Huygen of Scharbeek, Belgium, who enjoyed it sparingly over the next 18 years. On 20 December 1982, 6397 was sold through the firm Automobiles Bourgeois to the Siegel family of Reutlingen, Germany, and registered to a Mrs. Gasser, who was a friend of Mr. Siegel. Between 1983 and 1989, the car was treated to a complete, ground-up restoration by marque specialists, with total receipts amounting to over 150,000 DM. Upon completion, the car was subjected to annual inspections, and in October 1999, 6397 was found to be free from defects by the German TÜV, with just 45,067 kilometres registered. In 1998, the Schenk firm of Stuttgart performed repairs to the rear axle, and replaced the generator as well.

In 2000, 6397 was acquired with 46,300 kms by a motorbike and automobile museum, where it has remained ever since. Today, it is offered complete with its original Belgian registration documentation, restoration and maintenance receipts and the original handbook. Sympathetically restored, well maintained and handsomely presented, this 330 GT 2+2 remains a fine example of Ferrari’s desirable four-passenger road cars.
