    Many years ago, when these where just cars, I met an owner who put a 330 v-12 in his GTB
    with a bad motor, anyone know if that car still exists and who the owner is ? I found a 16mm film that we shot of it one day at a track,

    no idea of serial number and film is B&W this would be early 70's

    Mark Schroeder used to own 275 GTB/4 #10163. It used to have a 330-America engine installed. That's the only 4-litre I know. Best wishes, Kare

    10163: That 4-liter 330 GT engine was installed by Tom Meade in 1970, before he sold the car to USA. Meade today still has the original engine 10163.

    Yes, and Tom sold it with a 6-carb set-up on the 330 engine, but the manifolds didn't match up with the heads (Duh!), so we could never get it running right. Finally, Sal DiNatale figured it out. I was the original importer from Tom, and sold it to Mark, who kept it quite a long time, as these things go.

    In that picture are the 2nd and 3rd cars on the left a pair of GTC4s?

    The engine came out of a 330 America, not a 330 GT. Best wishes, Kare
