Upon its arrival in the United States in late 1971, chassis number 08969 was refinished in green and as of 1983, was owned by S.V. Cabibbo of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The car remained in Cabibbo’s ownership through 1986, when it was re-painted red and sold to Brady Sadek of Chicago, Illinois. Sadek showed the car at the Ferrari Club of America National Meeting and Concours in 1991, where it was awarded first in class. Sadek then sold the car to Brian McIver of New York City in 1992. In 2014, an extensive mechanical and cosmetic refurbishment was undertaken.
The car was returned to its stunning original colour combination of Nocciola over Beige and was exported to the United Kingdom in March of 2015 after being purchased by Swedish billionaire Jörn Rausing. Upon its arrival, the car was entrusted to Ferrari specialist Bob Houghton, where it received a full engine service including a radiator and starter motor overhaul, the installation of an original type alternator, and the fitment of new brake pads. The interior trim was removed and sent to Luppi for re-trimming in correct Connolly leather.
Furthermore, the 330 GTC has been granted Ferrari Classiche certification as fully conforming to its original specifications. In addition to the Classiche binder, it is accompanied by a handful of service invoices, including invoices from work completed in both 2014 and 2015 in Rausing’s ownership, as well as a set of owner’s manuals, tool kit, and jack. Considered by many to be one of the greatest driving Ferraris of its era, this 330 GTC would be an ideal show car or long-distance tourer.
