The 330 GTS could be described as a "series II 275 GTS" with a revised grille and bumperettes as opposed to a one piece full width front bumper. Of course, in addition to the visual changes the 330 benefitted form increased power and torque as well as character changing smooth drive line with the use of torque tube over an open prop shaft thus making in our opinion the 330 GTS a far superior car.
Only approximately 100 330 GTS's were produced before Ferrari discontinued production in late '68 to make way for the new 4.4-litre 365 GTS. Electric windows were fitted as standard along with a full leather interior and comfortably padded rather than figure hugging bucket seats. Air conditioning was an optional extra.
This example was supplied new to the American market by Chinetti motors in 1967 and was originally presented in Rosso Rubino with Nero. The car was fitted from new with "factory A/C".
Fast forward to 2004 and the car was still with what was believed to be just its 3rd owner in remarkably original condition still. The car was purchased by a dealer and underwent a careful recommissioning after many years off the road.
In 2007 the car was then sold to the UK where a further minor but thorough restoration was commenced. At that time the car was stripped to bare metal and repainted in Nero. The seats and door cards were retrimmed whilst the remainder of the interior was carefully retained as it was in excellent condition. A great number of bills are contained within the sizeable history file documenting the huge number of parts that were overhauled and/or renewed. At that time
the top end of the engine was also rebuilt, the valve stem oil seals were replaced and the transaxle was checked/overhauled. Ferrari have recently confirmed that the engine/transaxle/body are all still "matching numbers".
In 2010 the car was sold to the previous owner and today the mileage is indicated at just 51,800 miles from new and the car is presented in superb and well maintained condition throughout. A fabulous opportunity to purchase one of the greatest, prettiest, versatile and most capable road Ferraris of the 60's.
