Car Of The Day – Classic Car For Sale – 1965 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2

by Mike –

Here is my pick for the classic car for sale today that I would like to own. I usually like the odd ball cars and I have been a fan of the Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2 cars for years even though they do not get much love from the traditional Ferrari crowd because of that back seat.

This Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 has an extra attraction, or detraction, depending on your opinion – the quad headlights. I love them but not everyone does.

If you take this car to an Italian car event like Concorso Italiano it will likely be the only one there and if there is another one it will be red instead of this beautiful dark silver.

The Love It Or Hate It View

This Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 is for sale on eBay and is located in Emeryville, California at Fantasy Junction.

The current bid is $90,000 and the reserve has not been met. I have to think it is getting close to meeting reserve.

This is a terrific color combination and will always stand out in the Ferrari crowd. The quad headlights will guarantee that as well so the combination is unbeatable. The cost of maintaining and restoring this Ferrari is the same as it’s cousins that sell for several times more than this will sell for. This means that any buyer should be sure it is in good shape and that there are not any deferred maintenance costs.

And why does the “trunk lid sit a bit high” as the seller says and you can see in the photos. A question that needs answering among a few others.

  1. It is kinda ugly.

  2. Appealing in an unusual way, certainly unique for a Ferrari.
