Ferrari introduced its new Ferrari 330 GTC model at the Geneva Motor Show in 1966. Similar to the Ferrari 250 series, the number “330” refers to the displacement of each single cylinder. Designed to sell alongside the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 model, which was less sporty, the 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC needed to be a real performance car while still doing its job as a grand touring vehicle. With its shorter wheelbase and finely tuned engine, the 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC, and other model-years, is one of the best overall classic Ferrari models in the eyes of many collectors and enthusiasts. Pininfarina designed the 2-door Coupe body, with characteristic rounded headlamps and an oval grille to fit the elegant longer nose. The front mounted engine is a 4-Liter overhead camshaft 12-cylinder, with 2 valves per cylinder. With an output of 300hp at 6,600rpm and a precise 5-speed manual gearbox, the Ferrari 330 GTC can reach an average top speed of 150mph, which was quite impressive for the era.
The Ferrari factory was very different from American manufacturers production lines at the time. Each example was engineered and developed to be special and each car was worked on for a great number of hours by Ferrari technicians before exiting the factory. The 1966 Ferrari 330 GT was originally fitted with Pirelli Cinturato 205VR15 tires (CN72) when leaving the factory. Even in the 1960s, Ferrari vehicles were highly customizable and could be ordered with special options and various color combinations. Most cars on the market today are well cared for and have been restored and sometimes modified to the owners taste. When searching for a 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC, the additional options featured on the car can often add value. Be on the lookout for those with unique combinations, and always ask the sellers for any documentation they may have regarding the cars history.
