Sold for $561,000

  • An ideal driver, one of Ferrari’s greatest touring cars

The 219th example of just 598 330 GTCs built, chassis number 09874 was originally finished in Argento over Nero and fitted with the seldom seen factory options of air conditioning and power windows. Originally sold new in Genova, Italy, to a Mr. Coppola in 1967, the car would only remain in Italy for six years and was sold to Luigi Chinetti Motors in December of 1973 and exported to the United States that same month and was then sold to an owner in Savannah, Georgia. In 1984, the car was purchased by Edward A. Weschler Jr., of Nashotah, Wisconsin.

Weschler kept the car for two years before selling it to the noted Ferrari collector Robert L. Bodin of Minneapolis. Garaged alongside a number of significant Ferraris, the car was repainted red in Bodin’s ownership. By 1989, it had passed to Tim Traff of Wayzata, Minnesota, who had the car refinished in its current colors of black over a red interior. Its next Minneapolis-based owner kept the car for about 10 years. In his custody, the car was shown at the Cavallino Classic in 2002 as well as Concorso Italiano in 2004 but was also driven regularly.

Acquired by its current owner nine years ago, also of Minnesota, the Ferrari was shown by him at the Carmel-by-the-Sea Concours in 2008, where it won 3rd in Class, and also accompanied its owner to the 2012 Cavallino Classic. In his ownership, the car spent the majority of time at his residence in Florida, where it was used and enjoyed in the temperate Florida winters. In his decade of ownership, the car was driven about 5,000 miles, which mostly consisted of leisurely drives with the Ferrari Club of America.

Last year, the car received a complete mechanical overhaul by the Ferrari specialists at Motion Products Inc. of Neenah, Wisconsin, and is said to be a lovely driver and grand tourer in all regards. Furthermore, new Michelin XWX tires were fitted to the car’s Borrani wire wheels. Receipts for this work totaling to $45,000, as well as a thick file of documentation going back to the early 1990s, is included in the car’s history file. The car is also accompanied by a set of owner’s manuals, tools, and a jack.

Well regarded for its luxurious, yet sporting driving dynamics thanks to its rear-mounted transaxle providing perfect balance, the 330 GTC is considered to be one of the most usable and lovely Ferrari grand tourers of the 1960s. Well-presented in attractive colors with a recent mechanical overhaul by Motion Products, this particular 330 GTC is certainly not to be overlooked.
