    Have you driven examples of each? In my opinion, they are very different cars.

    Regards,

    I have not Art, a friend had a 69 365 gt 2+2 and I remember riding as a passenger taking the back mountainous roads from Denver to Boulder for example.. Do you have any recommendations? Any particular one you like?

    In my opinion, the 330 looks much better, smaller and even petite in person.'

    The 365 has the far better interior, with better wood, electrics, an son on.

    The 330 is lighter and more lithe, the 365 more of a grand tourer.

    Spend time with each one and decide!

    Personally, I think the 365GT looks better than the 330. Of course, that's part of the reason I own a 365GT.

    The 365GT is a wonderful tourer, and even a pretty decent daily driver, as long as your daily drive doesn't include too many sharp turns or heavy traffic. I've been using mine as my daily driver for most of August, and loving it.

    The huge turning radius is a bit of a hassle, but you get used to it.

    I'd try to find an opportunity to drive both, if you can.

    I think the 330 GT 2+2 is an underrated car. I own one now for about a year and love it. It's a great tourer. And ..... the price it (still) right.

    +1 ....much underrated Joop

    Our RHD MK2 has been with us for 26 years, and is a keeper

    Along with PF's, GTE's, Lusso's etc.... shame so many were butchered for replica/tribute/fakey-doo's

    I like the 365 its better looking and more confortable, and I think will increase in value more that the 330.
    But boths cars are fun and confortable to drive even they are 40 years old, they pull like a freight train and the sound..... of those engines.

    PD. Sorry for my English

    I've had my 365 2+2 for about 3 years and will drive it forever. Great riding for long trips, probably not for the track. It's the best sounding car I've ever owned. Never get tired that V12 humming away, especially at 4500 + revs. Bella bella.

    One other thing I might add is that I'm at 220 lbs and about 6' 2" and the 330 felt a little tight. The 365 feels like it has a little more room up front..

    The 365 certainly has plenty of room. I'm 6'4" and I could easily wear a pretty large hat in mine.

    I appreciate your opinions guys! I'm on the search for both models ( 365 & 330 ), I have to admit the search is a bit harder than anticipated, plus it seems if I want to find a decent example I have to attend one of those high end auctions ( RM, Russso & Steele, Amelia Island etc ..). I consigned my 01 456 m to Ferrari of Denver as I believe the vintage V12 is my calling.. Any opinions where I should be looking??

    I think the part of the problem finding a good example is most of us old-timers that have a fully sorted example just aren't interested in selling...good luck with the search!

    I would say for the most part auctions are not the right place to find a nice four seat Ferrari. Because the cars are worth less but cost the same to maintain...yadda...yadda...you need to find one from a more invested source, and get it inspected! Have you seen Tom Yang's site?

    365 GT 2+2 13091 came into my life in 1987 when I was a sophomore in high school. My father went to California on vacation to look at trains and cars with the intention of buying a 330 and came home with a 365GT 2+2. While I have very little seat time in 330s, I can say they are great cars. The few opportunities I have had to drive/ride in them have been great. That said, I would never trade my 365 for one. The 365 has so much torque and it just feels much more powerful. The 330 feels smaller which is a plus; however, the 365 feels more stable at speed (at least mine does). The power steering on the 365 helps in the city but these cars were never meant for the city. I drove my car 300 miles today and loved every moment on the open road. I drove from Chicago to Road America and back and the oil on my car stayed between 180-200 degrees in 5th between 3000-3500 rpm and the water never went above 170. In the city forget it. Last week when it was in the upper 80's I got stuck in traffic and the oil was between 220-240 and the water was between190-200 with the fans on. While those are not pull over and stop driving temperatures, it is not fun to roast in your car. An added advantage for me is that my car came with three point rear belts which allow me to put the kids in it. Feel free to PM me if you want to talk.

    It took me a full year to find my 330 2+2. During that year, I chased around ten leads.

    My car finally showed up on a tip from a Tom Yang & Fchat guy who had looked it but decided to buy another vintage model.

    Both are beautiful and amazing cars. It all comes down to which look you prefer.

    I just love my 365 and am planning on keeping for another 25 years and then giving to my son. It is a classic in my humble opinion. I also have a 355 and to be honest am tired of it. NOT the 365

    My 330 is a keeper now that she is fully sorted. In my first year of ownership I almost sold her but am glad seller's remorse set in early and I pulled the listing.

    I'm 6'4" and have plenty of room in it. I hope one of my kids want it someday when I'm gone... since I don't plan on selling it.

    Ferrari Quebec has two incredible examples of these two vintage Ferrari's in stock. I am driving one this weekend with my family and it's fabulous!
    I will have them posted on our website for sale this week. Both are Rosso Corsa with Cuoio interior. Completely restored.
