This desirable 330 GT 2+2 single headlight Series II was built in
1966. Intended for export to the United States, it was equipped
with several appealing (and uncommon) factory options, including
air conditioning, power windows, power steering, and wire wheels.
Delivered new to Luigi Chinetti Motors in Greenwich, Connecticut,
it was immediately transported to the Ferrari's West Coast
distributor, William F. Harrah's, Modern Classic Motors in Reno,
Nevada. It was later sold to its first registered owner, Denver
Cornett of Louisville, Kentucky.
Mr. Cornett was the first dealer of imported cars in Kentucky and
an avid sports car enthusiast. He drove in the initial post-World
War II road race at Watkins Glen in 1948 and is in the Watkins Glen
Walk of Fame. He founded the Kentucky Region of the Sports Car Club
of America and was an active member of several other regional and
national automotive clubs. The 330 GT joined numerous other fine
automobiles in Mr. Cornett's personal collection and was proudly
displayed at the Concours d'Elegance at the Churchill Downs Show in
In 1970, after three years of ownership and 7,000 miles, Mr.
Cornett sold the 330 GT to another Ferrari devotee, C.C. Canada of
Camden, South Carolina. Mr. Canada was exceptionally well-known in
Ferrari circles and drove the 330 GT to events across the country,
including Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen, and a national meeting of the
Ferrari Club of America in Waterford Hills and Grosse Pointe,
Michigan. Mr. Canada kept the 330 GT for 43 years! His ownership
ended in 2013 with this 330 GT in well-preserved, unrestored
condition, showing only minor blemishes due to enthusiast use and
At this time, the 330 GT was sold to new ownership it was put
through a comprehensive, meticulous restoration by the Ferrari
experts at Julio Grosso Restorations in Danbury, Connecticut. All
components were restored or replaced to bring the car to its
The 330 arrived at the restoration facility with fewer than 56,000
original miles on the odometer and was completely disassembled and
stripped to bare metal. No major rust was unearthed, thus little
metal work was required. The 330 GT was then refinished in its
original color, Argento Silver and all chrome was re-plated.
Mechanicals were gone through, the engine and its components were
rebuilt, new pistons and valves were installed, all hoses and lines
were replaced, fuel pumps were reconstructed, and the radiator and
heater were updated with new cores. The suspension was stripped,
nickel-plated, and painted; components were re-bushed and the
original Koni shocks rebuilt. The brakes, power steering, and
clutch were restored, the interior was then completely redone to
factory original standards, seats in Nero Franz Black leather with
new Wilton-style carpets. The wood dash veneer, steering wheel,
gauges and radio were also restored. Finally, a new exhaust system
was fitted, the air conditioning system was fully rebuilt and the
original Borrani wire wheels were re-spoked-restored.
The 330 GT 2+2 is complete with its Ferrari tool kit, jack,
reprinted owner's manual in its original leather folder, extensive
documentation, including a warranty card as well as service and
restoration receipts. A welcome addition to any garage or
collection alike, a significant investment has been made to ensure
this 330's being as it was originally intended when new.
