"Dear Gloria and Jesmond, we are very happy with our recently purchased Daimler Sovereign and thank you for the helpful and supportive way you have enabled us to complete the purchase transactions. For us, this was the first time we bought sight unseen. It was also the first time we have used a transporter to convey our our purchase home. Needless to say, the vehicle, on arrival, was found to be in the excellent condition relative to age which we had come to anticipate. So far, whenever we have used it, complimentary comments have been in evidence. We look particularly look forward to being able to allow our grandchildren to travel safely on the rear seat. The anticipation of our future vintage motoring experience is palpable!"Peter & Rosalie Donovan, Whakatane, New Zealand
The 330 GTC was introduced in Geneva just two years after the 330 GT 2+2.
It embodied the best of both worlds between the comparatively plush 330 GT 2+2 and the more hardcore 275 GTB.
The 330 GTC used the same steering, suspension, and transmission as the 275 GTB, and these features, coupled with a wheelbase that was 10 inches shorter than the 330 GT 2+2, made the GTC much more dynamic to drive. Perhaps the most sporting characteristic of the 330 was its engine. The 330 GTC’s Colombo V-12 produced 300 hp and had a top speed of 150 mph, with a 0–60 mph time of under seven seconds. The 330 GTC was no slouch.
Design elements from the car’s ancestors are evident in the bodywork, as the 330’s tail was first used on the 275 GTS, while the front-end styling is reminiscent of the limited-production 500 Superfast. With the shorter wheelbase, the 330 GTC lost its rear seats and gained a rear luggage shelf in its place. Like the beautiful 250 GT Lusso, the 330 GTC had very thin A- and B-pillars, giving the cabin an open feeling and incredible visibility from all angles. At the end of the 330 series’ production run, total numbers for the GTC stood at 598.
ABOUT THIS CAR
- This 1967 Highly collectable investment Ferrari 330 GTC, 4 litre V12, 5 speed LHD is one of 598 cars.
- It is in excellent condition and has recently undergone a complete restoration.
- All engine and mechanical repairs were completed during 2020 by Auto Restorations of Christchurch, New Zealand. This work consisted of compliance preparation such as changing new bushes, fuel lines, restored radiator, restored weber carbs and top of engine, cams, points etc. etc. The car body was restored stripping back to bare metal (boot, bonnet, doors off, windshields out) and repainted to a very high standard in the original colour, Grigio Fumo/Grey.
- This was followed by an interior refurbishment, that is the black leather interior was fully restored along with all new carpets and wood rimmed steering wheel.
- Shod with new period correct Michelin Tyres over original Campagnolos magnesium wheel rims.
- Four private owners - The car was sold in 1967 by Ferrari of Virginia, USA to a New Yorker, who owned it for five years. The second owner, a Canadian, noted that the engine overheated and was sent back to the dealership for repairs. The engine was replaced and re stamped 10445. The car remained in his collection in dry storage for over 25 years. The third owner owned the car for a further 18 years. It has had one owner in New Zealand.
- The GTC's excellent driving characteristics can be attributed to various chassis features first introduced two years earlier on the 275 GTB. Of those, the fully independent rear suspension was the most obvious. It replaced the live axle setup used so many years on the marque's Grand Tourers. Weight balance on the short wheelbase (2400 mm) chassis benefited greatly from the gearbox incorporated in the rear suspension (transaxle).
- Power comes from a long stroke version of the Colombo SOHC V12. Displacing just under four litres and breathing through three Weber Carburetors, it was good for 300 bhp and 326 Nm of torque.
- The boot offers ample storage space and is equipped with a full-size Campagnolo spare and Ferrari tool kit.
- The bonnet, boot and doors are all aluminium and so is the engine heads and block to reduce weight.
- Car is fully complied and registered for New Zealand roads - first registered in New Zealand in December 2020.
- This model is known as the glasshouse because of the amount of window coverage.
- We have here posted a photo of the engine after the restored carburettors from Weberspecs had been fitted. An expensive job $8000.0.
As per usual, Ferrari’s engineers kept pushing the envelope in order to create a car that would provide unmatched performance, as well as luxurious appointments that their discerning clients demanded and the 330 GTC was intended to be the grandest of tourers.
It was designed to cruise effortlessly and was luxuriously appointed to carry its occupants down the autostrada in style and ample performance. All in all, a very pleasing example of Ferrari’s best, one which offers its new owner the chance to drive and enjoy the car as is for many years to come.
As to pricing we are looking at offers. To give one an idea of values, Duttons of Melbourne sold a metallic brown 67 GTC for NZ$1,200,000.00 (in excellent condition just like this one). Fantasy junction in USA have a red 67 for sale for NZ$901,000 (Average condition). On Hemmings there is a 67 GTC for sale for NZ$1,076,000.00. (good condition).
Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.

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.
For more information about this vehicle, please contact us Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 6:00pm (New Zealand Standard Time) on +64 (0) 3 310-6485 / +64 (0) 274 990-020. Alternatively, you may email us at email@example.com anytime.
PLEASE NOTE: As Waimak Classic Cars is NOT a car yard dealer type of operation, we do not operate through fixed opening hours. Viewing is therefore STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and A FEW DAYS NOTICE is always appreciated, as it is seldom possible for us to accommodate viewing on the same day of inquiry
