A One-of-a-kind Classic Ferrari Shooting Brake
This special, one-off Ferrari initially left Ferrari’s Maranello factory in 1965 as a 330 GT Series II with Pininfarina coachwork finished in Rosso and a Beige interior. The car was delivered new to Luigi Chinetti Motors in Greenwich, Connecticut. In 1967, Chinetti Jr. had the bodywork redesigned as a unique shooting brake by Bob Peak. The car was then professionally rebodied by Vignale in Turin, Italy. The one-off design provided more comfortable seating for four with the added benefit of a cavernous luggage space.
The car is powered by a 300 bhp, 4 litre V12 engine with three Weber carburetors; it is paired to a five-speed manual gearbox. The interior accommodates four passengers, each with their own bucket seat completed in a tan leather. The wood dashboard houses Veglia Borletti instrumentation and features a black leather dash pad. A wood-rimmed steering wheel completes the interior.
