  • A desirable second-series 330 GT 2+2

A desirable second-series 330 GT 2+2, chassis number 8319 was originally built as a European-specification example with power windows and a five-speed manual transmission, finished in Bianco (20414 A) and Rosso (VM 3171). These second-series 330 GT 2+2s were introduced halfway through the 1965 model year in an effort to attract more buyers, and introduced a number of updates. These included fitting the car with different side louvers, giving the car a similar style to the 275 GTS, as well as improved engine ventilation. The most noticeable change, of course, was the restyled front end, which replaced the four-headlight nose with a more attractive two-headlight design. Additionally, 10-hole alloy wheels were fitted as standard to Series II cars. A number of smaller changes were made to the car’s exterior as well, including a redesigned transmission tunnel that was connected to the central dashboard, necessitating further changes to the location of the dashboard switchgear.

After being completed in March of 1966, the car was dispatched to Rugico S.A., the official Ferrari distributor in Spain with locations in Barcelona and Madrid. Subsequently, the car was sold to its first owner in Spain that same year. While the car’s early history in Spain is not known, it was purchased by Fulvio Sperone in Moncalieri, Italy, in July of 1985. It is believed that the car remained with him for the following 15 years, as its ownership trail picks up again in early 2001, when ownership was transferred to Mrs Angela Rubeo, also of Moncalieri.

By this time, the car had been refinished in dark blue. It was sold in November 2002 to another female owner, Maria Sterpeta Francavilla of Torino. The following year, it is noted that the car was involved in an accident and the damage to the passenger-side front of the car was repaired shortly thereafter in Italy. More recently, the interior has been fully reupholstered and the car presents quite well in its attractive colour scheme of Blue over Rosso leather.

Now residing with an owner in Monaco, the car would certainly attract lots of attention thanks to its stately and unique appearance.
