First introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 1966, the 330 GTCs have always offered the best balance between elegant, understated styling and state-of-the-art handling and performance of any of the Enzo-era Ferraris, and this 330 GTC will not disappoint. These cars are extremely pleasant to drive, even in today's traffic, thanks to the light clutch and steering, the wide torque band provided by the 300 hp 4 litre V-12 and the tractability and balance that result from the combination of the rear-mounted transaxle and vibration eliminating torque tube. The 330 GTCs offer the collectability and passion of the Enzo-era Ferraris, combined with the technical sophistication of the rear-mounted 5-speed gearbox and an independent suspension with powerful four wheel discs. Like the svelte 250 GT Lusso of a generation earlier, the 330 GTC has very thin A- and B-pillars, giving the cabin an open feeling and incredible visibility from all angles. While many GTC owners have large collections of important Ferraris, their 330 GTC will often be the Ferrari of choice for driving events.
330 GTC s/n 9939 was the 243rd of only 598 330 GTCs, delivered new in May, 1967 to M. G. Crepaldi Automobili s.a.s. Milano, the Authorized Ferrari dealer for Milano, and then sold to Guiseppe “Beppe” Lucchini, of Brecia, Italy, a founder of the Mille Miglia Historica and the Chairman of the family’s large steel group, plus six other companies that form the blue chips of the Italian stock market. Beppe was also the principal of the Scuderia Italia and the Minardi F1 teams in 1991 to 1996. 330 GTC s/n 9939 came to the US and in 1979 was offered by Cunningham BMW in Orange County before coming back to southern California in 2008. 330 GTC s/n 9939 was sold to the current owner in January 2012 and has proven to be a joy to drive and a dependable part of the current owner’s collection. In 2014 she was serviced by Gran Tourismo of Los Angeles. The transaxle was overhauled, a new clutch slave cylinder was fitted, the rear brake calipers were rebuilt, new plugs were installed and the fuel and coolant hoses were replaced. The total invoice was $8,696.09. In March of 2016 she was treated to an engine-out service by Ferrari of Beverly Hills who installed a new clutch and pressure plate, replaced both motor mounts and sublet the starter motor for rebuild as part of a detailed Classiche inspection and certification, the total invoice was $16,955.07. The Classiche red Book was issued and invoiced in July of 2016, the invoice was $7,440.00. Today, 330 GTC s/n 9939 has 105,475 kms or 65,539.12 miles over 52 years so a mere 1,260 miles per year.
Today 330 GTC is a pride of ownership driver, nice enough to show with pride at weekend Ferrari events yet with the right patina to make driving worry free. The body is straight and the paint shows well with nice bright work, very good trim and nice glass. Panel gaps are good to very good in most areas with no obvious issues. The Borrani wire wheels present very nicely with nice gloss and polish. All four wheels are fitted with Michelin XWX tires with lots of remaining tread. All lights, lenses and emblems are in very good to excellent condition with excellent finish. The overall presentation is elegant and appropriate for driving enjoyment.
The interior leather presents well with very good fit and finish on the door panels and headliner, as well as the top of the dashboard and the center console, finished off with excellent carpets and period correct competition seat belts. The instruments are in very good condition with solid numbers and dark dial faces, matching overall with the quality of the interior. The trunk compartment is correctly carpeted. Under the hood, the engine and engine compartment and hood pad are tidy, clean and show good overall finish. The underside of the car is clean and dry, with correct components, proper exhaust and heat shields, correct suspension and brakes. Having been a part of a large collection during the past seven years, the car has been kept very nicely detailed and mechanically tended to on an as-needed basis.
The car starts easily and settles into a smooth idle. The exhaust note is nicely composed and delivers excellent sounds both at idle and going through the gears. Thanks to the ample torque, there's never a lack of effortless power or performance. The clutch and brakes operate as expected with the gearbox delivering smooth shifts and easy engagement in each gear. While 2nd gear synchro is often a major issue with these cars, it is very smooth even when cold. Driving is composed and balanced, pulling smoothly to high rpm without smoke or hesitation, showing excellent oil pressure and correct running temperatures. The car performs just as aficionado's will remember from the Road & Track and Car & Driver roads tests of the period, long since validated by decades of GTC owners.
The 330 GTC has always offered the best balance between elegant understated styling and state-of-the-art handling and performance of any of the Enzo-era Ferraris, and this 330 GTC will not disappoint. Matching numbers, of course, Ferrari Classiche certified with the red book in hand and pre-sale inspection in hand.
