    Seriously looking for a factory original azzurro (light blue) 330 GTC. I know these are rare, but at least 16 s/n listed as such on f-register, that weren't color changed from original. So I am hoping to get lucky with a quality specimen and an owner willing to sell. Appreciate any help.

    I found this one listing in maranello of all places, but dealer states the restoration and service records are mysteriously unavailable, so extremely hesitant to pursue. Plus, the vehicle seems to be a bit on the tired side, but still gorgeous. Pictures worth looking at!

    I looks like it is almost next door to Auto Toni on the Abetone, there must be some connection.

    The dealer Purosangue has nothing to do with Toni Auto. The dealer is Gabriele Candrini, a very nice Italian gentleman who has been aorund for decades. He used to be in the city of Modena but has moved his shop a couple years ago to Via Abetone Inferiore in Maranello, 2 mins from the factory gate.

    Had a false alarm of an azzurro spec at FoH. Ryan confirmed it was silverstone grey, which can have a greyish blue appearance, and apparently already sold :rolleyes:

    Appreciate any leads including one's not for sale (for now :))

    FYI no fewer than 73 units of the 330 GTC were originally painted Azzurro 19278 M and other shades of Azzurro.

    Thanks Marcel, hope springs eternal! However, I will adhere to the "Stockdale Paradox" on this search: believe I will succeed in this search ultimately, but keep exquisitely realistic about the challenges of finding the right spec in this shade.

    I have #9899 which was originally Azzurro but it was painted red 15 years ago, very well, but could always be changed back.
    Looking to sell.

    Learning more about the car, it is still in the running. Any chance there is an FChat member in London interested in taking at look at the car informally and kick the tires? Always good to know how the doors, hood and trunk open and shut and if it passes the sniff test :)

    Great color, wonder if anyone has details about the car...and why owner is selling after 4 years? Tough to get that $ in todays 330 market imho.
