Unveiled at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, the 330 GTC was offered as a stylish production car alternative to Ferrari’s growing line of competition cars. It was the successor to the 275 Berlinetta (the 330 GTC would inherit the same chassis) and the predecessor of the 330 2+2 Coupe. The steel and aluminum body of the 330 was constructed by Pininfarina. Its svelte appearance married the front end of the 500 Superfast with the 275 GTS rear, resulting in a new GT car that was unmistakably Ferrari. Wheels were a smooth 10-hole alloy design that were mounted via knock-off Rudge hubs; the design had a striking similarity to the racing competition Ferrari’s of the period.
Mechanically, the 330 GTC offered excellent weight distribution and handling, with proven V12 performance. The newly improved Colombo V12 (factory designated type 209) was increased in bore and stroke to 3,967cc and still featured the single overhead cam, wet sump design. With triple Weber carburation and dual coil ignition, the 330 was capable of 300hp with a top speed of over 150mph. A rear mounted 5-speed transaxle was connected to the engine via a torque tube encased driveshaft while fully independent suspension and power 4-wheel disc brakes ensured maximum grip, even on the most unforgiving roads.
The inside of the 330 offered elegance while lacking splendor. Occupants sat in trimmed leather, while the driver had Veglia black faced instruments reporting speed, engine revolutions, water temperature, oil temperature and pressure. A Nardi, 3-spoke, wood steering wheel helped to enhance the road feel provided by manual worm and roller steering, while power windows allowed the driver or passenger little distraction from the road ahead. Production was limited to 600 cars from 1966 to 1968, but the legacy of the 330 GTC would live on in models like the 330 2+2 coupe, which inherited the enhanced 4.0 litre Colombo V12 engine from the GTC.
This late 1967 model, chassis no. 10927, is finished in Rosso Amarento Red with an impeccably-kept black leather interior. It was sold new in Italy by Ferrari of Milan. It stayed in the Ferrari homeland for the first few years of its life before coming to California in the mid 70’s where it remained until last year. With previous long-term collector ownership this 330 GTC has amassed an incredible amount of service records that still accompany the vehicle today. The original owner’s manual, complete tool roll, and restoration photos are also included. The vehicle’s meticulous restoration still shows as new, and garnered a Best of Marque award at the 2009 Concorso Italiano invitational. It performs exceptionally well and would make a welcome addition to any prominent collection. We are proud to offer this exceptional example to the most sophisticated collector, investor, or enthusiast who appreciates the potential of this great marque.

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle. If you deem the vehicle is not as represented upon personal inspection, we will not only refund your deposit, but will also reimburse your airfare at the cost of a coach ticket. Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.
Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.
The advertised mileage represents the actual miles when the car was posted online. These vehicles are test-driven and actual mileage may vary at the time of sale.
All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
Daniel Schmitt & Co. reserves the right to end the auction at any time.
