    Hi all

    A friend and I are trying to spiff up a 330 GTC, and make it more correct in the process.

    It is an early - registered as a 1966 - USA spec car. It is serial number 88xx.

    So, to return it to original 'as delivered' spec, should it have sealed beam headlights or the European type with the removable bulb?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Mine is a US model (#107**) but it came with the removable bulbs.

    Are they made by Carello the same brand as fitted to the Daytona ?

    I'm pretty sure mine were Carello.

    Question is easily answered: Car & Driver magazine July 1967, page 33. 330 GTC Road Test. Headlights are Carello. Also, Ferrari no longer was contracted to Marchal after 1965.

    I have attached a factory technical bulletin regarding the Carello headlamps for 275 and 330 models.

    Any Ferrari made prior to 1966 - when USA enacted laws - actually first to be affected were 1968 models - would have been a Euro car except for the gauges - maybe.
