The Ferrari 330 America stands out in the prestigious stable of 1960s Ferraris because it was produced for only one year in 1963. The 330 America was a filler between the outgoing 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE and the 1964 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 that replaced it. The 1963 Ferrari 330 America also debuted Ferrari’s new 4.0-liter V12 engine producing 300 horsepower. A total of 50 Ferrari 330 Americas were produced in 1963. An estimated 30 examples are still in their original form, and Schaltkulisse is selling one of them.
This particular restored 1963 Ferrari 330 America is a numbers matching example with a Ferrari Classiche certification for authenticity. It wears an Azzurro Acrilico blue exterior with a matching blue interior. The restoration took five years to complete. The chassis alone required over 1,000 hours of labor done by Symbolic Cars. The goal of the professional restoration was to make the car appear as if it wasn’t restored. That’s why specific parts like the ashtray were kept in their original patina while the entire electrical system was renewed for reliability. As with most vintage Ferraris of this caliber, all paperwork on the car’s history comes with the vehicle. Few things in the automotive world can stir the heart like a blue Ferrari.
