An Exquisite 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC.
In the world of classic cars, few names stir the soul like Ferrari, and even fewer models evoke the spirit of pure Italian craftsmanship like the 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC. Bearing the VIN 9989, this automotive masterpiece is not just a car; it's a piece of history, art, and engineering marvel.
Delivered by Pininfarina on March 23, 1967, and completed by Ferrari on May 22, 1967, this 330 GTC embodies the zenith of Italian elegance and performance. Underneath its hood purrs a 4-liter V12 engine, capable of producing 300 bhp at a roaring 7,000 rpm, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, 4-wheel independent suspension, and 4-wheel disc brakes. Its Borrani wire wheels only add to its timeless charm.
What sets this 330 GTC apart is not just its performance but its rarity and originality. Believed to be one of only four 330 GTC's built with unique features such as 365 GTC hood vents, a non-mechanical fuel pump, and a distinct carburetor fuel log, it stands out as an extraordinary find. With low original mileage and a meticulously documented ownership history, this Ferrari is a treasure trove of automotive excellence.
The car's journey through time is as fascinating as its engineering. Formerly owned by George Maffey, the 330 GTC's story involves secretive Ferrari shops in Torino, intriguing former owners, and international travels, including a flight in the belly of a 747 to Southern California. Its legacy includes appearances at prestigious events like the Monterey Historic Salute to Ferrari and the Los Angeles Rodeo Drive event, where it was a star in its own right.
As it finds its way to the spotlight once more, this 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC, with its comprehensive history, original manuals, service records, and a complete tool kit, represents not just a car but a lineage of passion, craftsmanship, and the pure joy of driving. It's more than a collector's item; it's a narrative of automotive excellence waiting to continue its remarkable journey.
