$34.1k is a fair price for this car. It needs to be gone through carefully, and perhaps needs a mild restoration. I think the presentation also scared bidders. It was quite amateurish, unworthy of the car, plus the seller found out during the auction that the miles he had stated were actually kilometers. Full disclosure needs to be given when selling old Ferraris. Where did you get it? Is the previous owner available for questioning? What documentation comes with the car? ~~~ As Ferraris go, this is one of the least attractive. Still, its a rare 12-cylinder coupe deserving of respect. If it were me, I would give the car a very mild restoration and enjoy it, then sell it for a profit when the time comes. A full restoration would most likely prove to be a losing financial proposition.
Just when I thought I had seen it all, then along comes this! A 1966 all original (only painted once), matching no's Ferrari 330 GT 2 + 2. Rare enough on it's own , but this in one a VERY rare "stallion", it is the ultra rare interim model that is double headlights and 5 speed but a 1966 (no. 7279). Please see http://www.tomyang.net/cars/330spotter.htm This is one of an actual 125 cars ever built and you can't get much rarer than that - and how many of those still exist now? This is a true "lost car". This 330 GT comes from a local estate sale and has a believed genuine 99,000 miles to it's credit, and 3 former owners. The Ferrari also is amazingly solid with almost no rust, it looks to be all the original sheet metal and never welded, the interior the same, it is totally original one of the most unspoiled and unmolested Ferrari's ever to be for sale. This is the way to find them, in my opinion this is a car of international importance and will be a proud addition to any collection of fine cars. I have had the priviledge of driving this car and I must say it drives like it looks and has no major mechanical faults. These cars can make up to $100,000 and that's an ordinary 330 GT, this is NOT a ordinary one,and must be worth a small fortune when cosmetically restored, the reserve is set at a lot less than half of this, so it will get a new owner,and is not a waste of time bidding on. An all original unrestored 330 GT, drives and looks nice, a cosmetic restoration would be nice to make it show worthy.
Great news,the milage on the car is in KM, so 99,000km converted to miles is only approximately 60,000 miles,that makes this 330GT even rarer!!!!

From WikipediaThe Ferrari P series were prototype sports cars in the 1960s and early 1970s. Although Enzo Ferrari resisted the move even with Cooper dominating F1, Ferrari began producing mid-engined racing cars in 1960 with the Ferrari Dino-V6-engine Formula Two 156, which would be turned into the Formula One-winner of 1961. Sports car racers followed in 1963. Although these cars shared their names (based on engine displacement) with road models, they were almost entirely dissimilar.
