One of just 99 330 GTSes built, chassis number 9781 was completed by the factory in April 1967 as a U.S.-specification example. It was delivered new through Luigi Chinetti Motors in Greenwich, Connecticut, to its first owner, Gerald Martin, of New York City, later that year. Finished in the seldom seen and highly desirable shade of Nocciola (19397) over a Nero Franzi interior, the car was retained in Mr. Martin’s ownership for the next nine years before its sale back to Chinetti.
The car has just finished a full restoration by marque specialists to its original and highly compelling color combination. During the restoration, the drivetrain was completely rebuilt and reassembled by Chris Dugan, of Dugan Enterprises. The suspension was fully rebuilt, and all-new rubber bushings were fitted with new brakes. All chrome parts were re-chromed, and the body was brought down to bare metal before a new coat of Nocciola was applied. The same level of attention to detail was furnished upon the interior, and the car presents entirely as new. Accompanying the car is a proper set of owner’s manuals, a complete tool roll, and a restoration file including photographs of the restoration and invoices. Furthermore, the car has been submitted for Ferrari Classiche certification.
Car and Driver described the excitement of driving the 330 GTS best when they said in their July 1967 issue, “Depress clutch. Find neutral. Turn ignition key. Give the gas a tiny, nervous touch. Oh my God!” Beautifully restored and ready for the road or concours events, there’s no doubt that this wonderful 330 GTS will put a smile on the faces of both its driver for its overall driving experience and of passersby for its unique colors.
