Apple, Coco-Cola, McDonalds and Nike are brands recognisable the world over. So is Ferrari and interestingly the iconic Italian luxury sports car manufacturer was named The Worlds Strongest Brand in the 2019 Brand Finance Global 500 Report.

Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1939 out of Alfa Romeos race division as Auto Avio Costruzioni the company built its first car in 1940. The Second World War halted Ferraris dream, which was finally realised in 1947, when the first car bearing his name, the Ferrari125S, was built. From that day on Ferrari race cars dominated the world over, winning race after race and many world championships in Formula One, sports car racing and endurance racing. Ferrari built exclusive sports cars for the road too, but in the early days, this was primarily to fund his motor racing!

The Cavallino Rampate or prancing horse was the symbol chosen by Ferrari and like the golden arches it is recognised by just about every man, woman and child on the planet!

The Ferrari road cars built in the 1940s and early to mid-1950s were built in very small numbers and it was not until the introduction of the 250 series cars that production numbers increased. Almost 1,000 Ferrari 250 GTEs were built from 1959 1963. The 250 Series also contained some of the most special Ferraris ever built, including the Ferrari 250LM, 250 SWB, 250 California Spider and of course the 250 GTO. The 250 Series cars were superseded by the 275 Series cars, the 330 series cars and later the 365 series cars. The nomenclature designated the cubic capacity of each cylinder. So a Ferrari 330 was powered by a 12 cylinder engine of 3967 cc capacity.

The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was introduced in early 1964 as a successor to the 250 GTE. The 330 was a totally new design and one of its most distinguishing features was its sharper nose with dual headlights. The cars wheelbase was 50mm longer than its predecessor and it had an improved braking system and suspension. The 330s engine was of 4.0 litre capacity generating a claimed 300hp. This was a significant improvement of the 250 GTEs 3.0 litre engine which generated a claimed 240hp.

Being able to seat four in relative comfort and yet providing the performance, handling and looks expected of a Ferrari, the 330 GT 2+2 was a very successful car in period with circa 1,000 cars built from 1964 1967. Ferrari built 503 Series 1 cars, easily identified by the dual headlights, of which 50 were right hand drive and 460 Series 2 cars, of which only 36 were right hand drive.

Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a rare factory right hand drive Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series 2.

Documentation on file from the Maranello Concessionaires Archives confirms that this particular car was ordered on the 25th March 1966 (order number 268). It was completed in June 1966 and finished in blu sera (20.264 A.It) with blue (VM3015) upholstery. This is a UK delivered, factory right hand drive example that was sold new to a Mr P Myers who took delivery on tax free plate EE02393 in July 1966. Myers was an Australian living between the UK and Germany.

There is an invoice on file which notes that the car was fitted with seat belts, a tape recorder, radio, speakers and wing aerial on the 14th July 1966 at 437 miles. There are also some early service records on file which confirm that the car was serviced on the 14th February 1967 at 6,030 miles, on the 31st August 1967 at 12,130 miles and on the 13th January 1969 at 15,061 miles. On the last invoice it is noted that there was a fee to deliver the car to the docks.

This matching numbers car has spent the majority of its life in Australia, being imported here in 1969.

Myers sold the car soon after it arrived into Australia to a Dr Geoff Stubbs from Brighton (Melbourne), Victoria. Along with a number of other classic Ferraris, the car was an attendee at the 4th Great Australian Bugatti Rally held in Griffith, NSW in June 1972.

It is understood Stubbs was a long term owner of the car and it was then sold into Sydney, possibly to a Mr M Robinson. This Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was then acquired by a local car dealer and sold into Brisbane in the mid 1980's. The car was registered in Queensland as OSF330. It remained in the same family ownership through until July 1997 when it was acquired by the current owner, at which time the odometer was 70,059 miles.

This Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 carries an older repaint that still presents exceptionally well. Whilst colour is obviously a personal choice, we think blue sera is about as good as it gets for a Ferrari 330 GT 2+2! There are paint blemishes and stone chips which are consistent for a car that is used as its makers intended . . . and that is to be driven! The sunroof looks to have been repainted at some stage and is not a 100% perfect colour match. The panel gaps are all very good on this car. The body is in good condition, though there are a few spots in the sills that may require attention in due course. The Borrani wire wheels and all of the chrome, exterior trim, lights/lenses and glass are in good condition and compliment the appearance of the car nicely. The interior looks to be totally original and shows patina consistent with its age. There are some splits in the leather on the seats and the speaker cut outs on the rear parcel shelf have deteriorated. The timber steering wheel and timber veneer dash are a real feature on a Ferrari 330 GT and they are in excellent condition, as are the instruments which are also in working order. In many ways the interior of this car is just like your favourite leather jacket . . . it shows some wear but it still presents well and can be used and enjoyed exactly as it is.

The starting procedure on these classic Ferraris is somewhat of an event in itself and once understood and mastered is something you look forward to and enjoy. Power up the battery, switch on the fuel pumps, turn the key and you can hear the fuel pumps prime the carburettors . . . be patient, then turn the key. Theres slight hesitation as the engine fires, but you can catch the start with a blip of the throttle and the big V12 bursts into life. The heart of any Ferrari is its engine and this V12 has good oil pressure, excellent power and it sounds fabulous! The engine was rebuilt in the late 1980's and the gearbox was overhauled in November 2006. This car has been used sparingly in recent years but it has been meticulously looked after throughout its 23 years of current ownership as evidenced by the notebook with documented maintenance & service records documented by the current owner since 1997. The car drives exceptionally well and it performs out on the open road as one would expect.

Accompanying the car is an owner's manual (reprint) in a leather pouch, a Ferrari 330 GT parts book, a generic Ferrari handbook covering different models from the late 1960's/early 1970s, a Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Service Manual (copy), a Ferrari 330 GTC & GTS Assembly Data & Repair Instructions Book, a Ferrari Tuning Tips & Maintenance Techniques Booklet and a notebook with documented maintenance & service work completed by the current owner since 1997. There is a spare wheel and an original jack.

Today the odometer reads 99,956 miles.
