Reimel Motor Cars is proud to offer a 1964 Ferrari Series 1 330 GT 2+2 with 68,521 miles.
This particular 330 is presented in Pinot Verde (Dark Green) over caramel leather. The combination shows off the sumptuous lines of the vehicle in an understated and elegant way. It is a recipient of a fresh nut-and-bolt restoration by, world renowned New Jersey-based, Automotive Restorations headed by Mr. Steve Babinsky. The work was carried out to the highest possible standards with an eye for the fine details. The result is exceptional. From the exquisite body and paint work performed to the Pininfarina coachwork to the expertly redone interior where no screw or stich was left to chance. Accenting chrome and stainless trim were redone to the highest show standards, including the original Chrome Borrani wire wheels that have shod with period-correct Pirelli tires. The restoration was not just cosmetic every mechanical component was correctly and properly replaced or rebuilt. Indeed, great effort was taken to ensure that the car would not only be capable of winning awards, but that it would also run and drive strongly. Photos and receipts documenting this unparalleled restoration are on file.
On completion, 330 GT chassis 5973 was showcased at the world famous Cavallino Classic, and later at the Ferrari Concours in Skippack, PA, where it scored the FCA Platinum honors. This tremendous 330 GT is restored to the absolute highest level and is offered with owner’s manuals as well as comprehensive history file including Marcel Massini’s report. Superbly presented through and through, 5973 must be the best restored 330 GT on the market today.
Introduced in January 1964, the 330 GT 2+2 was based on the preceding 250 GTE 2+2. Pininfarina was once again entrusted with the styling. The ‘Series 1’ 330 GT has become truly evocative of 1960s fashion, lauded both for its individuality and Pininfarina’s purity of design.
Like its predecessor, the 330 GT employed a tubular chassis, suspension was independent at the front by wishbones and coil springs while at the back there was a live axle/semi-elliptic set-up. Improvements to the discs-all-round braking system saw separate hydraulic circuits adopted front and rear.
The 330’s Colombo-type, 60-degree, V12 engine displacing 3,967cc, the overhead cam all-alloy unit was good for 300-plus horsepower at 6,600rpm, an output sufficient to propel the 330 GT to a maximum velocity of 152mph (245km/h) making it, when introduced, the fastest road-going Ferrari.
Built alongside the ultra-exclusive Superamerica models, the 330 GT was Ferrari’s ultimate grand tourer for the sophisticated client during the era known in Europe as ‘La Dolce Vita’. A favorite of Enzo Ferrari, these fine motorcars cost more than the contemporary 275 GTB.
