In 1964 Ferrari replaced the 330 America with their new 330 GT 2+2. More than a reworked 250GTE, the 2+2 came with a sharper nose and tail, quad headlights and a wider grille. The wheelbase was lengthened by 2 inches, and Koni adjustable shock absorbers improved the handling. Four-wheel disc braking, assisted by servos, was also added.
In 1965 Ferrari's Series II 330 GT 2+2 introduced some key differences and upgrades. A five-speed manual transmission replaced the aging four-speed with overdrive, quad headlights were replaced with dual lights, and air conditioning and power steering were among the optional upgrades. Only 460 of these Series II cars were made before ceasing production in 1967.
07761 began its life in September of 1965, put together by Carrozzeria Pinifarina, painted in Grigio Fumo (smoke gray) and trimmed with dark-red leather upholstery. In late 1965, the Ferrari would be imported to France by official French Ferrari importer Franco-Britannic Autos Limited, based in Levallois-Perret (Paris). FBA would then sell the car in 1966 to Mr. Anthony, the cars first owner in Paris, France.
The Ferrari was imported into the United States in the 1980's, marking the start of the car's three-decade long occupation in the US. By 1987, it was owned by Bruce C. Dolan in Pompton Plains, New Jersey. He would have the car until the 1990's when the Ferrari would find its next owner, Jeffery Barney, who would keep the car for the next two decades.
Barney would restore 07761 under him, and have the engine rebuilt. Truly a committed and enthusiastic owner, he showed the car many times starting in June of 1995 at the Rosso Rodeo Concours in Beverly Hills. That August, he would show the car and take second in class at the Ferrari Club of America Vintage Concours in Carmel Valley, CA. In 1996, the Ferrari scored first in class at the Huntington Beach Concours d'Elegance and that August, it took the first of eight Platinum Awards that it would earn through 2005 under FCA National-level scrutiny.
In 1997, the exterior was refinished in black, and other awards includes the Cavallino Magazine 100th Issue Award, the Stanley Nowak Award in 1999 and 2001, Outstanding Authentic Interior at the Colorado Springs Ferrari Nationals in 2000, and the GT 2+2 and Coppa Bella Macchina Awards at the 2001 FCA Concourso Italiano. All of the FCA awards were won at National-level events and throughout his ownership of the car, Barney continually elevated its presentation with the guidance of noted restorer Bob Smith's expert advice.
By July of 2005 Steve Pomerantz of Tarzana, California had taken ownership of the Ferrari, and in 2009 was sold to an owner in Woodland Hills, California. The car would remain with the owner until being sold at auction on August of 2013.
The most recent owner purchased the car and completed a mechanical restoration on the Ferrari, most notably enlarging the four liter Colombo V12 to five liters, now producing around 375 horsepower from the stock 300. All suspension components, drive line, rear axles, steering shafts, rods, arms, spindles, kingpins, brakes, clutch pedals and shafts were restored along with the engine.
Now with only 983 kilometers since the Ferrari's rebuild, paired with its extensive award-winning history, documented ownership, Marcel Massini's report and outstanding Pinifarina styling, this 330 GT 2+2 is ready to tour on either the open roads or the concours lawns.
983 kilometers = 583 miles
