Welcome to Crave Luxury Auto, one of the nation's premier marketers of high-line and luxury automobile dealers. The winner of this auction will have the opportunity to own this beautiful1966 Ferrari 330GT 2+2 Series 1. The paint is in excellent condition and it is apparent that this car was garaged and meticulously-maintained. The interior is virtually flawless and is equipped with all the right options showing 29,532 miles. You can't go wrong with this fabulous vehicle!
This 330GT 2+2 Series 1 is one of only 625 examples, matching numbers engine, Sympathetic restoration completed in 2015.
300php, 3,967 cc SOHC V12 engine with three webercarburetors, 5-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with unequal length A-arms and coilsprings, live rear axle with semi-ellipticalleaf springs and parallel trailing arms and 4 wheel disc brakes.
Introduced at the Brussels motor show of January 1964, Ferrari's 330 GT 2+2 was the replacement for the outgoing 250 GT 2+2, and it notably elevated the prior four-seat platform with advanced mechanical elements and improved aesthetics. Most importantly, the onemodel received a larger and more powerful version of the Colombo short blockengine that displaced 4.0 liters and was good for 300 HP. Factory driver Mike Parkes was a key contributor to the 330's development, even claiming credit for the eye-catching dual headlamp front fascia. Single headlamps were adopted with the succeeding second series cars that appeared in min 1965 leaving just 625 examples that were built with the double lamp design.
Chassis number 7515 claims an unusual identity as one of very few transition cars that share features of the first and second series 330GT models. As one of the final series 1 examples built, this car is clothed in Pininfarina's handsomedual headlight body style, complete with knock-off borrani whirewheels. Mechanically, the 330 is equipped with some more developed features from the second series cars, including suspended pedals rather than a floor mounted pedal box and a 5 speed gearbox rather than a 4 speed with overdrive. this latter component endows chassis number 7515 with particularly long legs for extended high-speed cruising, a highly desirable attribute in a true GT car.
According to a history by marque historian Marcel Massini, this 330 2+2 was completed at the actory in July 1965 (Equipped with air conditioning) and delivered new to Luigi Chinetti Motors. By 1973, the car was owned by Ewing Hunter, a Co-owner of FAF motorcars in Tucker, Georgia, the well-known dealership that was one of the collectible Ferrari Hobby's earliest American institutions. Passing to a chain o Illinois based caretakers in the early 1980's this 330 was owned by collector John Weinberger in 1987, by which time it had been repainted in Rosso. in 1992, while displaying just 25k original miles, the Ferrari was offered by esteemed collector Steve Levy of Riverwoods, Illinois.
The minimally driven 330 GT 2+2 was treated to a sympathetic restoration that provided a clutch overhaul, new motor mounts, and master cylinder, rebuilt carburetors, new belts and hoses, and a partial rebuild of the engine with new piston rings, rod bearings, and valve guides. The paint and interior continue to present quite well, having been restored under a recent prior caretaker.
Currently displaying approximately 29,523 miles which are believed to be original, chassis number 7515 is a beautifully restored example of the handsome first series 330GT. it would strongly complememt any collection of touring sports cars and also provides a good entry to the hobby as a model that is almost certain to appreciate in coming years.
