66,000 € Sold

Specifications: 300 bhp 3967 cc single overhead camshaft V-12 engine, five-speed manual gearbox, four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,650mm (104.5")

There were three distinct 2+2 body styles made with the four-litre V-12 engine for a total of 1138 cars (including prototypes). The first, known as the 330 America, was a continuation of the 250 GTE body, but fitted with the new four-litre engine mated to the existing four-speed plus overdrive transmission. Fifty examples were built for the U.S. market and all were left hand drive.

The example offered here is part of the second style, known as the 330 GT 2+2 Series I. These cars used very similar mechanical components to the 330 GT America, but featured a completely new body style by Pininfarina with a very distinctive four headlight front end. For 1965, an interim version of the Series I was introduced with a new five-speed gearbox, and 7375 is one of these. At the same time, the clutch, brake and gas pedals were moved from the floor to a now traditional hanging configuration – which also eliminated a troublesome source of corrosion problems.

Chassis No. 7375 was the subject of a full cosmetic restoration by Touring Garage in 2005 and a full mechanical restoration by Sport Garage in 2006. Since completion, 7375 has not been driven on the open road. The car ’ s black paint and beige leather interior are as new and show few flaws. The overall quality of the car is very high, as might be expected given its recent comprehensive restoration work.

It is fitted with Borrani wire wheels and comes complete with a full set of tools and appropriate manuals; we encourage interested bidders to review these items before bidding.

Front engine twelve cylinder Ferraris have enjoyed a substantial surge in popularity and interest, and these lovely 330 GT 2+2s offer the thrill of Ferrari ownership at a very modest price.
