1967 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series IISUMMARY:This is a very good, rust-free example of this classic and very rare 1960's Ferrari GT. This Ferrari drives beautifully andlooks fantastic. Very nice inside and out with very good condition leather, new headliner, carpeting, and engine hood liner. Original equipment is on the car or, if replaced or updated, boxed for the new owner. The previous owner – awell known Ferrari collector –scavenged the 12-cylinder engine for his 330 GTC. In 2015, Pathfinder Motorsports LLC installed an ingeniously camouflaged, Colombo-styled, aluminum LS-1 that is virtually indistinguishable from the original, including OEM valve covers and dual oil filters – please see the photos. The gorgeous new all-stainlessexhaust system was custom built by a renowned Ferrari specialist and tuned tosound like a Colombo 12-cylinder. Much more ...
BACKGROUND ON THE 330 GT SERIES:Among the fastest appreciating Ferraris among collectors, the 330 cars are the successor to the 250, first introduced by Ferrari in 1963. The first 330 America was simply a 250 GT/E with a larger engine, and the 330 GTC/GTS shared their chassis with the 275. The 330 GT 2+2 was a truly unique and exclusive sports car with productionending in 1968 with the introduction of the Ferrari 365 series. All 330 models used an evolution of the 400 Superamerica's 4.0 liter Colombo V12engine. It was substantially changed for the 330 cars, however, with wider bore spacing and the notable use of a true alternator rather than a dynamo generator. Unfortunately,maintenance and rebuild costs on these engines is extremely high, resulting in many owners limiting their enjoyment of these wonderful cars.
The 330 GT 2+2 was first shown at the Brussels Car Show. It was much more than a re-engined 250, however, with a sharper nose and tail, controversial quad headlights, and a wide grille. The vastly improved 1965 Series II – like this car – featured a five-speed gearbox instead of the overdrive four-speed of the prior year. Other changesincluded the switch to the more popular dual-headlight instead of quad-headlight front clip. Only 455examples of these handsome, hand-built Series II 330 GTs were built before the lessstately 365 GT arrived in 1967.
DETAILS OF THIS CAR:This is a very nice 1967 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 that is a pleasure to drive with greatsound and performance. Its handling and ride is what one would expect to find in any well-maintained Ferrari, and is ready to be driven without worry. This particular Series II 330 GT 2+2 Series II is one of the last built of only 455 examples constructed. Due to many of these cars havingbeen parted out for 330 GTOreplicas – and owing to their rarity – there are far few of these cars still in existence.
Fortunately the previous owner had only removed the engine; everything else was there, including the original 5-speed transmission. We installed a fresh all-aluminum LS1 motor using all the original Ferrari driveline components (including the original transmission, drive shaft, rear end, etc.). The engine was tuned to a relatively mild 350 hp, putting its output between the original Colombo street engine and a full race 4-liter engine.
A custom exhaust was designed and built by a well-known supplier of original Ferrari exhaust systems and tuned to sound as close as possible to a 12-cylinder.The guy’s a genius: you would be amazed at how close to the original it sounds!
Important to me was to make the engine compartment look as original as possible. Therefore, no new holes were cut, all factory wiring was retained, custom functional dual oil filters as found in the original Colombo 12-cylinder were installed, along with a new set of period correct (and cleverly modified) Ferrari valve covers. The idea was to make an aesthetically pleasing engine compartment that compliments the rest of the car. One important benefit is that the new owner need never worry about engine mileage or maintenance costs. Ever.
