One of 625 Series I examples; desirable interim model refresh completed in 2015 Outstanding example of an evolving Maranello classic Matching-numbers engine
Introduced at the Brussels Motor Show of January 1964, errari’s 330 GT 2+2 was the replacement for the outgoing 250 GT 2+2, nd it notably elevated the prior four-seat platform with advanced mechanical elements and improved aesthetics. Most importantly, he new model received a larger and more powerful version of the Colombo short-block engine that displaced 4.0 liters and was good for 300 horsepower. Factory driver Mike Parkes was a key contributor to the 330’s development, ven claiming credit for the eye-catching dual-headlamp front fascia. Single headlamps were adopted with the succeeding second-series cars that appeared in mid-1965, eaving 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 330 GT models. As one of the final Series I examples built, his car is clothed in Pininfarina’s handsome dual-headlight body style, omplete with knock-off Borrani wire wheels. Mechanically, he 330 is equipped with some more developed features from the second-series cars, ncluding suspended pedals rather than a floor-mounted pedal box and a five-speed gearbox rather than a four-speed with overdrive. This latter component endows chassis number 7515 with particularly long legs for extended high-speed cruising, highly desirable attribute in a true GT car.
According to a history by marque historian Marcel Massini, his 330 2+2 was completed at the factory in July 1965 (equipped with air conditioning) and delivered new to Luigi Chinetti Motors. By 1973, he car was owned by Ewing Hunter, co-owner of FAF Motorcars in Tucker, eorgia, he well-known dealership that was one of the collectable Ferrari hobby’s earliest American institutions. Passing to a chain of Illinois-based caretakers in the early 1980s, his 330 was owned by collector John Weinberger in 1987, y which time it had been repainted in Rosso. In 1992, hile displaying just 25,000 original miles, he Ferrari was offered by esteemed collector Steve Levy of Riverwoods, llinois.
This minimally driven 330 GT 2+2 was treated to a sympathetic restoration that provided for a clutch overhaul, ew motor mounts and master cylinder, ebuilt carburetors, ew belts and hoses, nd a partial rebuild of the engine with new piston rings, od bearings, nd valve guides. The paint and interior continue to present quite well, aving been restored under a recent prior caretaker.
