This beautiful example of Ferrari's early tourer came to our shop for an assortment of mechanical fixes - brakes and air conditioning for the most part. We also added factory appearance seat belts that were never on the original car. Now there's an extra level of safety for those fun rallies.
Ferrari first made a 2+2 model in 1960 called the 250 GTE, which quickly became their best-selling model—at a time when 250GT SWBs and California Spiders sat on the same showroom floor for only a couple thousand dollars more! The GTE was followed by the first-series 330GT 2+2 in 1964, which also outsold its GTC and GTS peers. However, the car’s ungainly 4-headlight nose was widely criticized, so for 1966 pininfarina perfected the design with a much more elegant single-light version that was very popular.
Series II 330GT 2+2 s are great-driving models with a powerful 4-liter V12 and a much-improved 5-speed transmission. During their production run, luxury items like power windows and air conditioning became available options. The rear seats can actually hold passengers and the commodious trunk provides adequate luggage space, even for the fashion-conscious ladies of the late-‘60s. Ferrari’s traditional Boranni wire wheels were another available option when new cast-alloy wheels became the standard fitment. Series II 330s have risen sharply in value over the past ten years, going from $40,000 bargains to well over a quarter-million dollars today for a nice example.
