1964 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series 1

Jump to Images

The 330 GT 2+2 replaced the earlier 330 America in January of 1964. It differed from its predecessor with sharper curves, quad headlights, more tapered front end, and a wider grille. The Series I was only produced for a single year before the Series II replaced it in 1965, with a return to dual headlights. The Series I cars were particularly successful, and 625 were built.

(from Silverstone Auctions Press Release) 1964 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series 1

Another elegant Ferrari four-seater offered for sale with a vast history is a 330 GT 2+2 Series I. Ordered on July 9th 1964 through Maranello Concessionaires Ltd, it is one of only 49 right hand drive examples produced. Never wanting for maintenance throughout its life, this is one Ferrari that has been diligently looked after, having received an engine rebuild in 1986 and many thousands of pounds spend to date.

It has even enjoyed a brief weekend racing career, achieving a first in class and fourth overall at the Thruxton Bank Holiday Novice Championship on the May 4th 1987. Purchased by Mohamed Al Fayed in 1989, it benefitted from £30,000-worth of expenditure during his ownership and, in the hands of another custodian, has been sympathetically renovated.

Looking stunning in its metallic blue paintwork accentuating the iconic Pininfarina shape, this 330 GT is complemented by its original Borrani wire wheels. One of the fastest cars of the early-to-mid sixties era, it is an excellent and honest example of a car Enzo Ferrari himself once described as his favourite. With growing desirability in the collectors market and the sensible guide price of £190,000 - £220,000, this Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series represents a great opportunity.
