The 330 GT was introduced as a replacement for the 250 GTE which had been Ferrari's first series production model to offer a four-seat cockpit arrangement.
Two versions were constructed between 1964 and '67; the appropriately titled Series I and II. Produced alongside the sultry 275 GTB and exclusive 500 Superfast, the 330 GT was designed as a more comfortable and less demanding vehicle to drive. The Tipo 571 chassis frame was in many ways a close development of the frame used for the outgoing 250 GTE. A number of important revisions were made including a 50mm wheelbase extension and the inclusion of adjustable Koni shock absorbers. The Tipo 209 V12 engine developed from the enormously impressive Colombo line that dated back to 1947, the 330 GT engine had a displacement of 3967cc which helped equate to a very healthy 300bhp at 6600rpm, enough to propel the 330 GT from zero to sixty in just 6.3 seconds and onto a top speed of 150mph.
Pininfarina's bodywork featured a distinctive nose profile with twin headlights mounted in a chrome shroud making the Series I 330 GT's extremely elegant offering perhaps the most accomplished design of all the four seat V12 Ferrari's. All initially came equipped with Borrani wire wheels as standard. As you would expect for such a model, the interiors were appointed in a particularly luxurious manner, the heavily cushioned front seats being separated by a thick centre console that housed the transmission casing. There was a teak-veneered facia and classic wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel, full leather being used throughout as standard. There was a generous amount of space created for rear occupants who were provided with individual bucket seats and even an ash tray!
The first showing for the Series I was during January's annual Ferrari press conference in 1964. It then publicly debuted a little later in the month at the Brussels Salon. Production continued until spring 1965. 500 examples were produced with just 43 being UK RHD. Many of the RHD cars have since been discarded or used as donor cars for replicas making them an extremely rare, desirable and affordable sixties traditional front engine V12 Ferrari. Whilst it is not known exactly how many of these UK cars still exist it is certainly a fraction of the original number built – they are a rare find indeed.
This car offered for sale, Chassis 7313, is one of the original UK cars and was delivered in 1965 by Maranello to Mr Kingham of Bangor, Northern Ireland. The car is presented in Argento with Blue Leather interior (VM 3015) and is equipped with the essential 5 speed gearbox as per the later cars. 7313 has been enjoyed by just 3 owners form new and since 1980 has been with the current owner who purchased the car in Holland where the car has remained since. The car is accompanied by a mega file of bills dating right back from 1967 until today – the history in its entirety is thorough and comprehensive to say the list and is available for viewing along with the motorcar. Original Books, manuals and wallets also remain with the vehicle. More recently servicing of major importance has included a total engine rebuild in 2005. The car has covered a genuine and documented 85,000 miles, is here in the UK ready to view and is in fine health ready for action.
