Features

1966 USA model 330 GT 2+2 s/n 08251. Totally original paint and interior, Argento (silver) with Nero (black) leather and dark red carpets. Complete mechanical restoration with the engine, transmission, differential, suspension and brakes rebuilt and detailed by Motion Products in 2005 at a cost of just over $120,000. Has all service records back to 1989, including all invoices from Motion Products. Fitted with P/W from new and still fitted with the original Blaupunkt radio, which works great. Only 84,761 original kilometers for an average of only 1,800 kms per year over the last 47 years! A real “time capsule” with all original paint, a never-damaged body with excellent panel fit and excellent original leather. The full black leather interior and headliner are in excellent condition, as are the wood dash and the center console. The original carpets show some wear. The engine, transmission and differential are all matching numbers. The entire brake, suspension, shocks and cooling systems were rebuilt, repainted and re–plated to an “as-new” level. The car makes excellent power with no smoke and has excellent oil pressure. The suspension is soft and compliant, and the brakes stop the car effectively and evenly. A pleasure to drive that started instantly and runs as well as it looks. On our test drive second gear synchro was good, both when warm and cold, and the engine pulled strongly once warmed. Very clean rust-free chassis and lower floor. The car sits on restored mag wheels with excellent older Michelin XWX tires. Just completed a detailed pre-sale inspection.
