In mid-1965, Ferrari redesigned the 330 GT 2+2 model to feature single front headlamps, triple-louvered fenders, 10-hole alloy wheels, and a standard five-speed manual gearbox. Later delineated as the Series II iteration, these cars were built through 1967 in a modest quantity of 474 examples.

This highly awarded 330 GT 2+2 benefits from maintenance and freshening efforts while in the ownership of a handful of Southern California-based enthusiasts, as well as a more recent engine overhaul. Finished in Rosso over a beige leather interior, this 330 GT 2+2 was delivered to Luigi Chinetti Motors in New York for distribution in July 1966.

According to the 330 GT Registry, the 2+2 was purchased new in August 1966 by Don Horn of Memphis, Tennessee. After some 22 years of ownership, Mr. Horn offered the GT for sale, at which point the car passed to a succession of Minnesota-based owners through the 1990s, including veteran Ferrari collector Robert Bodin. In 1999, the 330 was acquired by Stacy Schulman of Santa Monica, California, and he had the car repainted in Rosso Rubino Metallizzato (Ruby Red Metallic).

Following a reported mechanical freshening by Gran Touring Classics in nearby Los Alamitos in 1999 and 2000, at a cost of over $18,000, the GT was acquired by Armando Ivan Flores of San Diego in January 2003. Later that year, it was sold to Michael Misuraca of San Diego, who had the interior re-trimmed in Crema leather and then presented 8627 several times at the Ferrari Owners Club gatherings at San Diego, winning a class award twice. The GT was also displayed four consecutive years at Concorso Italiano beginning in August 2004, winning a Gold Award in 2005, and Platinum awards in 2006 and 2007. In November of 2010, the 330 received its Ferrari Classiche certification; and its Red Book was issued. Both the engine and gearbox numbers correspond to the classiche.

In 2013, the 330 GT 2+2 was entrusted to Dugan Motorsports in Oceanside, California, for an overhaul of the original V-12 at a total cost of nearly $30,000; detailed invoices for the work accompany the sale. Following short stints with two Texas-based collectors, the Ferrari was acquired by the consignor in early 2016. It was enjoyed for many months as his occasional driver, and then was displayed at the 2017 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.

This impressively presented 330 GT 2+2 is accompanied by a tool kit and owner’s manuals in the proper pouch and would be a superb entry at marque events, FCA gatherings, and regional concours d’elegance, making it an ideal acquisition for any Ferrari enthusiast.
