A number of history’s most revered vehicles have been created on nothing but pure chance, and when one of these fine-functioning platforms emerges from the woodwork thanks to the world’s most prolific historical auctioneer, it’s time to take note. As one of Carrozzeria Zagato’s most interesting one-off creations, the 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC Zagato Convertible has finally shown its face to the world of classic automotive collectors. And the best part? She’s looking for a new owner.

This unique 330 GTC began its life as an illustrious platform, delivered to its first owner, Gerald L. Buhrman, by none other than three-time 24 Hours of Le Mans-winner Luigi Chinetti. After brief ownership, it was sold to a certain Robert Kennedy of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Sadly, in 1972, a minor accident would damage the front of the car, resulting in its return to Italy for repair. The vehicle was sent to renowned coachbuilder Carrozzeria Zagato, who, alongside Carrozzeria Carlo Marazzi and M. Gastone Crepaldi, would personally undertake the car’s restoration. A dramatic redesign saw the 330 GTC garner various improvements over its contemporaries, including a newly adapted frontend that’s been cited as a variant of Ferrari’s revered 365 GTB/4 Competizione. It would retain the same 300 horsepower V12 motor and Weber carburetors, alongside the vehicle’s anti-roll technology, telescopic shocks, disc brakes, and independent suspension. Following its restoration, it would find its way back into Kennedy’s collection, where it would stay until the 1990s. Now, the one-of-a-kind 330 GTC Zagato is being listed for auction via RM Sotheby’s. You can head over to the auctioneer’s website for further information.
