Used Ferrari 330 GT For Sale
The Ferrari 330 GT for sale was a series of V12 powered cars manufactured by Ferrari between 1963 and 1968. The beautifully proportioned Ferrari 330 GT was available in a 2+2 configuration as a coupe. Ferrari offered it as the second four-passenger vehicle in their lineup, but with all of the handling precision and balance that their cars are known for. The plush leather-clad interior with sophisticated interior elements makes the Ferrari 330 Grand Tourer stand apart.
The first model sold was the Ferrari 330 America with a relatively spacious 2+2 configuration. The 330 America shared the same chassis and sleek, classic look with the 250 GT/E. Still, it featured a larger 4.0-liter evolution of the Superamerica’s Colombo V12 engine the was found throughout the 330s. Only 50 330 Americas were built towards the end of 1963 before they were replaced with larger 330 GT 2+2's. Many of the Ferrari 330 America sport an "America" badge on the rear of the car, included as a subtle gesture towards the market for which they were destined. Apart from that, it’s hard to tell the 330’s apart from the 250 GT/E at a distance.
In 1964, Ferrari introduced the 330 GT 2+2. The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 for sale is one of just 1,099 produced between 1964-1967. It was designed by Pininfarina with a sharper nose and tail than the 330 America, had flashy quad-headlights and a wide grille, and a longer wheelbase for a smoother drive. The 330 name was derived, as Ferrari often does, from the approximate number of cubic centimeters displaced by a single cylinder of the engine, and the power output remained unchanged.
During the three years that the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was on the production line, it went through a series of changes. Koni adjustable shock absorbers were introduced to improve handling. The 330 is equipped with old-school dual-circuit disc-brakes that are separated between front and back, and they all left the factory fitted with Pirelli Cinturato 205VR15 tires.
In 1965, Series II 330's were upgraded from a four-speed gearbox to a five-speed. They also abandoned the distinctive quad-light headlamps in favor of dual-lights in front. Before those changes were fully implemented, however, 125 cars were produced that had a mix of Series I and Series II features. They had the quad-lights of the first series and upgraded five-speed transmission. Including those 125 cars carrying traits of both series, 625 vehicles were produced during the first Series, and 455 Ferrari 330 GT were manufactured as part of Series II. Limited production numbers make this sophisticated, classic car an incredibly rare find.
The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 is a beautifully designed and apportioned car that offers the ultimate convenience, is driver-friendly, and comes with plenty of V-12 power coupled with legendary Ferrari performance. The unique 330 America and GT 2+2 are highly coveted vehicles that would be an asset to any tasteful, definitive collection. As such, they continue to appreciate, setting record bids at the occasional auction.
