THE 330GT 2+2

Ferrari firmly established itself as a ‘volume’ manufacturer with the 250 series, following nearly a decade of producing mere handfuls of cars at a time. Of course even then the numbers built were nothing compared to Detroit, but the concept was still a big move for the builder of exotic Italian sports cars. The introduction of the Pininfarina designed 250GTE in 1959 added a genuine 2+2 grand tourer to the range, a car suitable for the mature businessman. It delivered both the performance and creature comforts required to cover thousands of kilometers of autostrada in speed and subtle, elegant style. The 250GTE was succeeded by the interim 330 America, which featured an enlarged 4.0-liter engine and then by the 330GT 2+2 Series I in 1964. The 330GT was updated in 1965 when the Series II models arrived. Its five-speed gearbox, alloy wheels and more resolved dual headlight frontal appearance set it firmly apart. Production ran until 1967, with 474 built.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

According to historian and respected Ferrari expert Marcel Massini, 09209 was supplied new to the US market and was delivered in the attractive color scheme of Blue Sera with a beige Connolly leather interior. Accordingly it was supplied in left hand drive configuration and with US instrumentation, and adding to its attractive livery it carried the desirable options of power windows, power steering and air conditioning.

The first owner was one Mr. Corsuti who received the car through Chinetti Motors, and it is thought that he retained the car until the mid-1970s. The 330GT registry for this series and the Ferrari Market Letter report with the car confirm that it has worn the more traditional Ferrari Rosso Corsa paint from around the time of its transition into its second ownership in October 1975, and notes subsequent ownerships in Florida, Georgia and then Alabama through the late 1970s. In 1978 it passed to Henry B. Cannon, of Alabama, who kept the car for nearly a decade during which it was extensively restored. It was offered by William J. Morrison, Jr., of Illinois in 1987 and the following year it would change hands just once further through local dealer Joe Marchetti’s International Auto Ltd. to the present owner.

In this lengthy custodianship the car has shared its stable with a select handful of Italian and European thoroughbred machinery. As viewed today, clearly its paintwork was refurbished some time ago as suggested by the Registry and likewise the interior must also have been as it is today in black hide and shows some age and patina. In general the car has a nice, authentic, and gently aged feel to it, while remaining in healthy mechanical order.

Against the backdrop of current price points for this and other Italian marques, these pure V12 Ferraris represent a very attractive way to sample the legendary cavallino rampante.
