Ferrari introduced the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 in 1964. This was one of the first four-seat Ferrari cars. The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was available from 1964 to 1967. This was a somewhat controversial car. The early Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 cars had quad headlights, which was criticized in many circles. The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 shown below is the updated version, that came up in 1965, with dual headlights.

During the production life of the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2, Ferrari produced about 630 of the quad headlight version and 469 of the dual headlight cars. This model was the first Ferrari car to exceed 1,000 units produced.

The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was powered by a 3,967cc V-12 with a single overhead camshaft. As with many Ferrari cars, the model designation comes from the volume of each cylinder, in this case the volume of each cylinder is 330cc (12 x 330 = 3,960cc). The engine produced 300 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. The car weighed about 3,100 pounds, making this a great 4-seat tourer.

Another change made to the later version of the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was a revised transmission. The earlier models had a 4-speed transmission with an overdrive. This later version was given a 5-speed transmission. There had been some stories about problems with the Laycock de Normanville electrically controlled overdrive units due to lubrication issues.
The Wood on the Steering Wheel Sets Off a Great Interior
One of the things that I have always liked about some of the older Ferrari cars are the Borrani wire wheels that were optional on many models. These wheels are about as classy and attractive as they get.

All of the Ferrari cars are very good cars, but this particular Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 model is a great touring car in all aspects.
