    Could 330 GTC owners please post photos of their key fobs?

    Does anyone have a verified original?

    My 330 came with a Tiffany art deco style sterling fob which, while nice enough, is clearly not what the car came with.

    Also, I only have one set of keys and need blanks to make another set of keys. Source for blanks?

    Thanks!

    You know, I had a couple of those, but one broke and I gave one away to a young nephew who loves Ferraris.

    I also gave away a key fob for my old F430…told him that key would open the door to a Ferrari if he ever found that one car. He was pretty excited.

    PM me and let me know if you’d like to part with one of yours and how much you’d like for it.

    Thanks!

    If there is still interest in this topic, here is a photo of the keys and fob that came with my GTC when I bought it in 1975. The dealer (FAF) assured me that they are original.
    The door key has a white plastic shroud, with a Pininfarina emblem. The plastic is, of course, chipped and discolored from 50+ years of use.
    The ignition key is marked "Neiman" on one side, with a serial/part number on the other side.
    I had both keys duplicated at an Ace hardware store many years ago. Different blanks but they work perfectly.
    I hope this information helps.

    I have these two. The Lorioli is brand new in the wrapper. The one on the right looks almost identical but does not have a manufacturer's hallmark(knock-off).

    That serial/part number is actually the key code...a locksmith can make a key based on that code and the key shape. It's helpful when a key is significantly worn...a locksmith can make a "new" key instead of copying a worn out key.

    right,but you may think that the lock also is old and may be the new key made by the codenumber is not matching right ;)

    It somewhat depends on the exact tumbler design, but a worn out key with a worn out tumbler sometimes stops working. A new key with the worn tumbler can *sometimes* delay that. Ideally, the locksmith puts new pins or plates in the tumbler AND cuts a new key.

    "Lorioli" fobs of that type I tend to think of as more from the mid/late 70s, and then into the 80s.

    For a 330 GTC, I've gotten the impression that a "Omea"-manufactured fob is more likely to be correct.

    If you just want the general look, "Coinart" makes a similar looking fob, and one sees them for as little as $50 sometimes...

    Attached is a photo of the back side of the rectangular key fob shown above. It says in small capital letters across the bottom “OMEA MILANO”.
