1965 Ferrari 330 GT V12 Series 1




Look at this Ferrari....Beautiful, isn’t it?

Some fast cars owe their performance to very large American engines, others to the work of tuning specialists, but the Ferraris offered for sale to ordinary people are in a category of their own. Built by a company which has been race-orientated for many years, they are to be regarded competition cars “cooled off” a little for docility and comfort on the roads.

The main advantage is that nothing mechanical is stretched or strained; on the contrary, there is plenty in hand. Thus the 330GT coupe, is always comfortably within its performance potential, and its behaviour at speed is impeccable. One of Pininfarina’s most practical bodies. A big and roomy car, the 1965 Ferrari 330GT is compact and sporty.


  • Chassis #: 7291
  • Engine # 209
  • It is an all matching numbers example in perfect running order.
  • This 1965 highly collectable investment Ferrari 330 GT 2+2, Series one, 4 litre V12, 5 speed is one of 50 RHD cars of the 503 cars produced. Of the 50 RHD cars there would be probably 20 cars left after the ravages of time. It is in immaculate condition and has recently undergone a complete restoration/repaint back to the original colour, Grigio Fumo/Grey.
  • Shod with new period correct Pirelli Tyres over original Borrani wheel rims. Disk brakes all round.
  • The cream leather interior is fully restored and is immaculate. Its also very well equipped and finished in quiet good taste. An elaborate heating system and separate adjustable fresh-air ducts in the middle of the instrument panel, pins extractor rear windows, provide a variety of hot and cold air flows.
  • The car was ordered into the UK By Maranello Concessionaires for a period of four years and then exported to Australia where it underwent a full body off restoration (including mechanials, motor etc) by Gary Dubois & Co of Melbourne, Australia (circa 1996) plus comes with full ownership and mileage history and recent servicing has been carried out by Auto Restorations in Christchurch.
  • Also comes with very desirable/collectable tool kit.
  • The 65 Ferrari 330 GT was Enzo's favourite car. I too think of this GT as one of my favourite Ferrari's of all time - you feel classy from the moment you step into a 330.
  • There’s just the right amount of wood and leather to say bespoke, the gauges and dashboard wouldn’t be out of place on a race car and, unlike modern Ferraris, the prancing horse logo is more subtly disposed around the cabin.
  • The Nardi steering wheel is a pencil-thin wood item common to the era – the concept of padding, let alone an airbag, not even a glimmer in Enzo Ferrari’s eye. Even the audio system is pure art.
  • That sloping roof line, those deep-dish Borrani wire wheels are purely sexy – and under that long bonnet, you can hear that screaming V12. As with all classics — Ferraris especially — the engine’s the thing. This big 4.0-litre symphonic “Colombo” V12 starts at the first twist-and-push of the starter, fairly bellowing to life like it’s itching to get to the Targa Florio.

This most elegant car can best be described as an exciting thoroughbred with a certainty that it would become even more satisfying as time and miles passes in its company.

This Ferrari meets all aspect of a purebred prancing horse should: An exceptional design, admittedly by Pininfarina, and the classic front-engined Ferrari lay-out with colombo-V12-engine. This latter is an absolute icon in terms of engines, which produces a symphony and a performance that is reachable at all revs! After a drive in this 330 GT you will get why! Ultimately, you can do excellent on a rally the one day, and going out with your family the other day!

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.

Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.

Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.

We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.
