1960s Grand Touring
The Ferrari 330 family came about in 1963, succeeding the outgoing 250 series. The first production, road-going car to wear the 330 name was the 1963 330 America. This grand tourer was visually very similar to the 250 GT 2+2 it replaced. All of the changes were done underneath the body thanks to the new 4.0-L V12 engine.
Just 50 units of the America were produced before it was replaced by the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2. Between 1964 and 1967, the Maranello factory produced 1099 units, spread out over two Series.
The 330 GT 2+2 Real Art on Wheels used to pick up the Christmas tree, is a Series I model from 1965. One of 500 produced and currently for sale with them.
This Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 is number 440 of 500 of Series I. It was originally delivered to Luigi Chinetti Motors in the United States in 1965. On March 25, 1975 the car was bought by a Mr Bernard James Muscha from San Francisco with registration 404 KTN. He enjoyed the car for about 25 years before it was sold to its first Dutch owner in early 2000.
Finished in Blu Scuro over a tan leather interior, the car’s engine was completely rebuilt and later received the official Ferrari Classiche certification.
