Fewer than 8,000 documented actual miles!
Original matching-numbers engine
One owner from 1969 to 2013
The Ferrari 330 GTC remains to this day as one of the most practical and exciting classic Ferrari V12 models - an eminently usable car - which makes the low mileage of this superb example all the more unusual. The 4 litre V12 paired to a 5 speed transaxle results in 150 + mph performance with beautifully balanced handling. We have sold numerous 330 GTC over the past 30 years and can attest that to find such an original low mileage car is a rare opportunity.
We are thrilled to offer probably one of the lowest mileage Ferrari 330 GTC models in existence. Originally delivered new to a Mr Caldart in Venice in 1967, the car was was brought to the US by a returning US seviceman - who in all likelihood was the cr's first or second owner. Purchased by Noah Lacona in 1969, owner of the Noah's Ark Pizza restaurants, Mr Lacona was a real enthusiast and successful Can Am racer.
#9659 was used sparingly throughout it's life and was garaged with Mr Lacona's collection of racecars. Later in life, Mr. Lacona treated the car to cosmetic work on the car and stripped and repainted it. Before the work was completed, he became distracted by other projects. The car was then placed in the back of his shop until 2013, when it was acquired by a restorer, from whom Donald C. Mann purchased it.
The car is currently finished in its original color of Rosso Cina. The interior is the correct black leather upholstery. The Borrani wire wheels, including the spare in the trunk, were restored and mounted with correct Michelin XWX tyres.
At the time that Mr. Mann acquired the car, a post-sale inspection happily verified that its engine was the original, which was confirmed by Ferrari’s affirmation of its numero interno.
The car was then acquired by the previous owner in 2015 for $907,500 which was close to a record price for this model - reflecting the quality of this car.
Comprehensively documented, the car is also accompanied by a file of documentation and is a reference example of a 330 GTC - in superb condition and ready for a new custodian.
