I think you're looking at 6027GT. That's RHD.

6029GT is LHD

Raab/Urban agree as well. Interestingly Raab lists the car coming with seatbelts!

Looks great a bit like the 250 MM in some respects.

I'm guessing the latter.
Let me clarify. This 250 GT series of cars, ranging in chassis number from 0429 GT to 0675 GT, is currently referred to as "Boano" to distinguish the cars from the earlier 250 GT (Europa) and later 250 GT (Ellena) and then 250 GT (Pinin Farina). In actuality, several of the early examples in the series were bodied by Pinin Farina, as were a number of specials.

To my knowledge, the car referred to here (0579 GT) was bodied in alloy by Boano. If the information about this 330 GT is correct, however, then we can assume that 0579 was either a Boano that was later rebodied by Scaglietti or was a "Boano" series car that was orginally bodied by Scaglietti. Personally, I have no idea which scenario - if either - is the correct one.

My take:

An original Boano-bodied 250 GTB (chassis #0579) was rebodied by Scaglietti, perhaps 1960-ish. That new body was subsequently removed from chassis #0579 and mounted on the 330 chassis.

The final Scaglietti body to 330 chassis move was done ca. late 1960's-early 1970's, when these cars were cheap.

It's drop-dead good looking, whatever the history.

Looks more like a very bad TdF replica to me. These retired coachbuilders must have lost their skills and/or eye sight after so many years. JMHO.

I'm with Peter on this one.

For the life of me I can't see this style coming out of Modena with said background, and I'd love to see a pic of the 410SA that reference is made to. I may of course be wrong.

The roofline/side windows/C-pillar treatment tries to emulate a TdF, but the rear screen is angled off the flowing line, which looks really bad. The windscreen looks like it could be straight out of a Peugeot 404. The styling of the front wings make it look like it is rolling on 13" wheels, and let me not get started on the rear-end.
IMO, inspired on a multitude of 50-ies cars, successful at none.

Well, the copied 410 SA wasn't exactly a looker either (copyright barchetta.cc):

Agreed on that one too. And yes, the body on the 330 looks very similar. Not a very lucky stroke of the pen to say the least. While its' uniqueness is undenyable, its' desirability is debatable.

I must say though that the colour of the SA does miracles for it compared to the flat red of the 330.

That body was built in the 1980s in Italy. It has absolutely NO relation to 0671SA, other than the fact that it may have been fabricated at the same time that the current body on 0671SA was fabricated in Italy.

0671SA had been stolen at least once, and one of the owners decided to chop off the body and throw it in a lake. Garrison bought basically a rolling chassis and engine, which he sent to Italy to be restored in the 1988-1990 time period. Unfortunately many of the details were not done correctly. See Cavallino #107 pp21-27 for a full color feature on this car by Greg Garrison.

The original body of 0671SA is GONE, and that body on 6029GT, nor anything really close to it, was not constructed by Ferrari.

regarding the description on carclassic...."....used by the farmer as a tractor...."
makes a good story, but.......doubtful in the extreme. in any way shape or form, entirely unsuitable for use as a tractor.
I call BS; tho obviously no way to prove/disprove. Smells of an odor typical of barnyards.....

Tritone
ps; the rebody is really fugly too....

The tight limited photos in the OP suggest a really good looking car.

Too bad the large set of more clinical shots in the "carclassic' link show the unfortunate proportions and mishmash of styling cues.

I for one am glad Greg Garrison commissioned the resurrection of this one. I agree that it's certainly not for everyone but I count myself among its fans. So much so, that if that day comes in the future, I'd be glad to write the check to be the next custodian. I would not be distressed, however, if my fellow Fchatters don't share that opinion.

In re the 330 GT, Jack is absolutely right. What a difference the right color of paint (or shade of red, in this case) makes. In terms of the 330 itself, I would rather have a bone stock body than this ultimate bitsa made in the 80's referencing a design from the 50's and mounted in the 2000's represents. IMO, the price should be at a discount to that of an original car.

Personally the article reads just like every other "I've made a replica and now I want to make it sound not like a replica so I can sell it" story. What I don't understand is how they are saying the body was built along side a 410 SA when the body was built in 1988?? ... like 25 years after the 410 SA was completed. Oh read again and that was when the 410 SA was rebodied/restored.

Another real Ferrari wasted by the horrible replica mad 80's .

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and so on. Nothing wrong with that and it does have its place in Ferrari history so I share your feelings about saving this particular car.

I've read several times that Scaglietti often softened the desing ideas of PF when he built the bodies. Designing on his own was less succesful IMHO.

This 330 GT "Speziale" belongs to the same guy who is trying very hard ( website etc.) to have his 275 GTB # 8249 to be recognized also as a " speziale".

With exceptions: IIRC, Scaglietti was, for instance, responsible for the SWB, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful Ferrari's ever. I was never a big fan of it, but recently have started to shift my opinion, at least where the early ones are concerned.
