At the 1966 Geneva Auto Show, Ferrari introduced their grand touring 330 GTC. The chassis design was similar to the 275 GTB with power coming from a four-liter, twelve cylinder engine. Pininfarina was tasked with creating the coachwork, using a front end borrowed from the 400 Superamericas with the rear similar to the 275 GTS. The side featured thin-pillars which was a unique feature of the 330 GTC and complimented by a prominent beltline from the doors back.
The design was popular and continued into the 4.4-liter 365 GTC in 1968. The interior was luxurious with suitable room for luggage both behind the seats and in the trunk.
Prior to being succeeded by the 365 GTC, around 600 examples of the 300 GTC were created, making it the most successful Ferrari model in the company's history up to that point.
This 1968 Ferrari 330 GTC with chassis number 11403 was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $225,000 - $275,000. It has recently been in storage for a number of years and has also been treated to a bare-metal re-paint since new. It is finished in its original black color and the interior has black leather seats that were also restored to show quality. It has had a major tune up and sports the original Weber carburetors, Borrani wire wheels, rear-mounted five-speed manual transaxle with single dry-plate clutch, and four-wheel disc brakes.
At the end of the auction the lot had failed to find an interested buyer willing to satisfy the vehicles reserve. A high bid of $190,000 was not enough and the vehicle would leave the auction unsold.
