Very nice video. Interesting is the dashboard of the 330 which I haven't seen before. It looks like a mix of 330 and 365 GT 2+2. Which chassis no. is it?
Don't know chassis number. Appears to be car here.
8401, a series II 330 GT.
Did you update the site 330gt.com today, Kerry? I looked earlier and couldn't find it.
Kerry knows his stuff...
Yes, the registry has been updated.
You may have to do a refresh in your browser to see the current version.
The ‘Pete’ you mention didn’t acquire the car in November 2020, he was the seller (via DK)...but I already told you that.
Interesting take with the quilting on the tunnel cover...
not correct and more bling than the understated nature of the car, but nice touch.
My error, fixed.
Bling, Bling, Bling: The area under the rear window has this treatment also. I suspect that the more you look the more bling that you would find. I wonder what the engine compartment looks like.

Thanks for the photo.
Very little bling in the engine compartment. Maybe too little. Should not the air filter housing be semigloss? The tubes for the spark plug wires should have the same wrinkle finish as the cam covers. The one in the photo does not appear to have this finish. On the other hand, the hose clamp at the radiator may look a little too shiny. Is it a cad plated Cheney?
it looks like semigloss
they also have
OK How about the hose clamp
you can not expect such a minor thing that it is original afetr so long time
when I do a major for example on a TR then I just replace all clamps
I love seeing a 330 GT in motion. It sounded quiet, though.
What’s with the comment on 2nd gear? That’s for transaxle Ferraris. Unless 8401 has a bad second gear synchro, it should shift fine, even from cold.
OK for a race car.
But if you are trying to restore a car, besides making it look good, if you want to show it, at least in America, you need to install original equipment.
The only post world war II car to get best of show at Pebble Beach in many years was a Ferrari. Just before the show, the owner found that it originally had vinyl upholstery. So he had the beautiful expensive leather removed and replaced by cheap vinyl.
Well, technically speaking, only time use of original equipment is (sort of) required is if/when owner wishes his/her Ferrari to be competitive in judging according to IAC/PFA guidelines/rules*.
Enjoying a car by driving or just showing it at most events does not require use or a "need to install" original type hose clamps or other similar OEM components/details.
How many vintage Ferrari owners you think will carry their cars original tool kit along should they ever brave an extended** leisure drives not associated with any organized events.
* They also specify deductions/penalties for "over-restoration", although it appears a moot point since they don't seem to be applied as often as they probably should.
** That's what they were made for.

Looking again at the photo, I'm pretty sure it is not semigloss and not wrinkle.
And I really do not like the quilted leather inside the car.
you may enlarge the photo, then you see the wrinkle
when you see gloss black it is much more shiny and when you see pur matt it is much more matt than this here. may be it is not 50 % semigloss, only 30 %?
If you have to enlarge to see the wrinkle, then it is not wrinkled enough. The cam covers show just the correct amount of wrinkle with no enlargement. Therefore, the two wrinkles do not match.
The air filter covers should be 100% semigloss, not x this and y that.
Thanks for sharing the video, it was fun to watch.
Regarding all of the correctness comments, I'm also a bit curious about the interior. Apparently the car is 'Classiche Certified.' Are interior modifications not considered in the certification process? No rocker switches, the pad below the dash is tan leather rather than black vinyl, the headliner seems to be tan leather as well and the ignition switch seems odd.
Its a pretty car done to the owner's personal taste but what is the big stink about Classiche if the car looks nothing like it did when it left the factory? Not intending to stir things up, just strikes me as odd. Probably been debated and discussed before.
I'd wondered the same myself. It would be interesting to see the details in the Classische Red Book as they are all subject to qualifications with all deviations from how the car was built should be noted in the book. Or, it was certified before the car was restored as it now is?
