    Hi All-

    I'm looking into the '64 330 GT that's being offered on Hemmings. I was curious if anyone knew much about it? It's been listed for a bit and I'm worried it's because people have viewed it and noticed there are some issues. Could anyone provide some insight? Has anyone here gone to see it?

    Just a quick review of the photos but it has several “modifications” and is far from original. If you’re serious, contact Tom Yang for a ppi. He knows his stuff. http://tomyang.net/

    With all respect - the pictures seem to show a “quick and dirty” resto.
    The interior leather is poorly finished, engine bay shows strange details as e.g. the insulation mat…
    Corroded instruments could indicate that the poor car was placed in humid environment for some time.
    Usually a classic car is worse in reality than in pictures- when you see the issues already in the internet, the car may need a costly restoration.

    While I generally agree with the above, the possible need of “a costly restoration” is usually buyers prerogative depending on their expectations. Some are perfectly happy with less than completely/fully, i.e. costly, restored cars.

    There are millions of vintage cars their owners and others may consider completely/fully restored or even “perfect”, while you, someone else or I may see them as (“quick and dirty”) hack jobs and in a need of a costly restoration.
    You can even see many (winning) in concours shows or featured in glossy magazines, etc.

    In my experience, a poor restoration that cheaped out on details also cheaped out on important stuff. I'd rather have an original but neglected car over something that was bodged up and taped back together for resale.

    It has a black Dashboard. That’s rare and the picture are not clear enough to know if the car is among the few who had the Formica black dashboard like the former car of harry Metcalfe. That’s seems unlikely from the photo. I don’t think many 330 had metal dashboard. I would definitely expect to see the teak one.
    i think you need a good ppi here.
