Car Tales: Swinging, Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series II

I truly adore Ferrari’s 330 GT 2+2 Series II.
These magnificent cars perfectly symbolize the sophistication of automobiles in the 1960s. So swinging.

In 1964 the 330 GT 2+2 was unveiled at Ferrari’s annual press conference. Enzo Ferrari had come out of left-field: he was introducing the commuter’s Ferrari, a car that you could take on those supermarket and school runs, but which was fun-packed (152 mph top speed) when you were getting out on the right sort of road.

The 330 GT 2+2 was an unbeatable idea. And the proof was in the eating: Enzo Ferrari himself drove a 330 GT 2+2, as did Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands and Beatle John Lennon, purchasing one the very day he passed his UK driving test.

The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was in production simultaneously with the 275 GTB and the 330 GTC, offering colossally powerful V12 driving, along with added rear seats and a deep trunk.
Designed by Pininfarina, an element of its styling was intended to draw in American buyers: this was the striking four-headlight nose. Beneath the surface, the 330 GT 2+2 had numerous updates from its predecessor: a wheelbase that was extended by 50 millimetres over the 250 GTE, Koni adjustable shock absorbers, and a Dunlop dual-circuit braking system, which gave both the front disc and rear disc brakes their own servo-assist.
But midway through the 1965 model year, Ferrari announced an updated version, a Series II model of the 330 GT 2+2. This signalled the end of that four-headlight nose, now replaced by a more attractive dual-headlamp nose, similar to that of the 275 GTS. On the nose the body was enhanced with different louvers for engine bay ventilation. Rounding out the exterior were the 10-hole alloy wheels, which were made standard, and the traditional Borrani wire wheels, which remained available as options. And there were some dashboard changes.
This is precisely the rare model we presently have at Beverly Hills Car Club, a highly coveted 1967 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series II featured with matching numbers engine. With only 79,618 kilometers on the odometer, equivalent to 49,472 miles, this Pininfarina-designed Ferrari is a rare find that combines timeless elegance with exhilarating performance.

This particular Italian classic holds a special distinction, having been cherished by the same owner for 44 years. This long-term ownership speaks volumes about the car’s exceptional quality and desirability, making it a rare find for discerning collectors and enthusiasts alike. Whether you’re a seasoned enthusiast or a discerning collector, this Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 represents a rare opportunity to own a piece of automotive history that is mechanically sound.
Pininfarina was hired to deliver its exquisite designs to a number of high-end car manufacturers, the Italian ones including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Fiat and Lancia.
When in 1928 automobile designer and builder Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina broke away from his brother’s coachbuilding firm, he founded Carrozzeria Pinin Farina. That first year the firm employed eighteen and built 50 automobile bodies.
Coming to the attention in the USA of Nash Motors resulted in high-volume production of Pininfarina designs: the Nash-Healey sports car body was completely designed as assembled with Nash drivetrains from 1952 for two years at Pininfarina’s Turin works.

Pininfarina also built 99 bodies for the limited-series Cadillac Eldorado Brougham for General Motors at the end of the 1950s.
Again, the car were assembled in Italy and shipped to the U.S.
By the time the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series II was being produced, however, you doubt that Pininfarina would have had time for such whimsical fancies.
