1967 Ferrari 330 GTS

This series would prove to be a step away from Ferrari’s past and a step
toward the future

Automobili Ferrari S.p.A. has always been known for building some of the fastest and best-handling sports cars in the world. Pininfarina is a master of styling and design and surely the lines and Ferrari V12 power of this rare 330 GTS Spider show the best of their collaboration.
The 330 GTS features a 300-hp, 3,967-cc, single overhead-cam V12 engine with triple Weber carburetors, five-speed transaxle, four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. The top speed is just over 150 mph with a 0-60 time of seven seconds. A quarter-mile is traveled in 15 seconds at a speed of near 100 mph.
Car and Driver in July 1967 summed up driving a 330 GTC in two short sidebars. “Driving it doesn’t change that first visual impression: class,” and “Depress clutch. Find neutral. Turn ignition key. Give the gas a tiny, nervous touch. Oh my God!” Bump that up a notch or two for the open GTS Spider.
This Fly Yellow 1967 330 GTS has been part of a Southern California collection since 1993. It has been driven sparingly and remains in well-maintained cosmetic and mechanical condition. The paintwork appears excellent, as does all the brightwork and Borrani wire wheels. The black leather interior shows only limited wear.
Truly an Italian grand touring thoroughbred, there are few cars that offer the driving experience a 330 GTS does. These models continue to appreciate in both value and desirability as their price becomes more reasonable given the increases in other areas of the marque.
