Description

After three years of tremendous success with the 250 GTE, Ferrari had planned its interim replacement, which was powered by the new 4.0-litre Colombo V-12. Aside from the powerplant, the 330 America—aptly named, given its target market—shared the GTE’s chassis and was visually similar to its predecessor. According to marque expert Marcel Massini, only 50 were built before production was ended to make way for the all-new 330 GT 2+2 in January 1964. Chassis 5113 was the 48th 330 America built, leaving the Ferrari factory in mid-November 1963. Specified with imperial instrumentation, this Ferrari was dispatched to Luigi Chinetti Motors in New York, and arrived in the Big Apple on 16 December 1963, prior to being sold through Ferrari Seattle. In July 1973, Massini notes that chassis 5133 was owned by a gentleman in Redmond, Washington. Three years later it was offered in the Ferrari Market Letter, but remained unsold and was placed in storage until 1984. On 5 May 1984, chassis 5113 was advertised for sale and purchased by Dr. Charles Kirkpatrick of Denver, Colorado. This owner restored this 330 America, refinishing the car in Rosso Cordoba and trimming the cabin in Fawn leather, with the work carried out by Bob Raub. Cherishing this 330 America until his passing in 2014, Mr. Kirkpatrick displayed chassis 5113 at multiple concours and Ferrari Club of America events. The current owner acquired this Ferrari 330 America at auction in August 2014, and by December that year had received Ferrari Classiche certification. The “Red Book” notes this example retains its matching-numbers chassis and engine. Today, this 330 America presents a unique opportunity to acquire one of Ferrari’s rarest grand tourers.
