1966 Ferrari 330GT 2+2

When people think of Ferrari, images of red, mid-engined sports cars and Formula 1 victories instantly come to mind. It's a shame, then, that the large, grand touring machines that Ferrari has made over the years tend to get glossed over a bit. The Ferrari 330 was the car that carried the luxury coupe torch for the marque throughout most of the 1960s. The 330 GT 2+2 was the most unique of all the 330s, as it had significantly changed sheetmetal, a longer wheelbase and five speed manual transmission. This 1966 330 GT for sale in Connecticut was originally sold in Europe and had an engine rebuild 15 years after it left the factory.

1966 Ferrari 330GT 2+2

1966 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2. Serial number 7889. Desirable later single headlight version. Very rare and attractive paint color with black leather and red carpets. Odometer shows 98,000 kilometers (61,000 miles) which is believed to be correct. Has original numbers-matching motor which runs out very nicely. Car was originally sold in the Netherlands or Belgium. It has a sun roof tastefully installed which I believe was done at the selling dealer Garage Francorchamps or possibly at the factory. There is a tag riveted in the engine compartment stating the motor was rebuilt by Piet Roelofs in 1981. The underside of the car is clean, nice and rust free. The whole car shows and drives well and is in "very nice driver" condition throughout except for the following MINOR flaws- small chip in windshield, a few small holes in the rear of the exhaust system., and the paint has some minor lifting (bubbles but not rust ) in a few small areas. The car is located in the northwestern corner of Connecticut about 75 miles north of New York City.

At the high end, a 330GT brings around $80,000 to $100,000. While it isn't a concours example, this car presents well and would make a great car for someone looking to enjoy their investment. The color is sublime and cuts a very gentlemanly dash. If I was to buy this car, I'd certainly want more in the way of documentation, such as more definitive evidence on which country this car came from and what maintenance over the years had been performed. That said, this car may bring somewhere between $60,000 to $70,000.
