One-Off 1967 Ferrari 330GTC with Matching Numbers: Custom Ordered New by Aristotle Onassis  
This 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC is a particularly fascinating example with matching numbers and a unique provenance documented by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini. Completed by Ferrari in November 1967, chassis #10639 was purchased new by Aristotle Onassis, who specified the distinctive Rosso Cina (China Red) livery and an array of bespoke features including a leather-clad padded dash, leather-wrapped steering wheel, stainless steel rocker panels, and a special front-bumper section protecting the grille. Aristotle Onassis was one of the world’s richest and most famous businessmen at the time. While groomed to join the family’s cigarette business, Onassis discovered that shipping was more lucrative than cigarette production. This spurred his acquisition of cargo ships at massive discounts while competitors abandoned the business during the Great Depression. Eventually, Onassis married Jacqueline Kennedy in 1968, forever cementing his legend. Aristotle Onassis firmly ranked among the most important Ferrari clients of the late 1960s. 
Recently discovered after nearly three decades in storage, this unique 330 GTC has been returned to running and driving order, although further mechanical attention may be required prior to road use. As a result of its many years in storage, 10639 remains in largely original condition. Not only does it retain its original, matching-numbers engine (stamped 10639, internal no. 2924/66), it also possesses all of its custom-ordered coachwork features and other important period details, including a Chinetti-supplied NART badge on the trunk lid and proper Irvin seat belts. Factory equipped with air-conditioning, 10639 is accompanied by an original tool kit and jack, as well as a history report compiled by Ferrari authority Marcel Massini. Exceedingly rare as one of the last Ferrari road models to be equipped new with special customer-ordered body and interior appointments, 10639 marks a truly compelling find for discerning collectors with its rich provenance and wonderful integrity.

A Unique Example of the Revered Ferrari 330 GTC Custom Built for Famed Shipping Magnate Aristotle Onassis Bespoke Features Include Stainless Steel Rocker Trim and Interior Appointments Largely Original, Unrestored Condition; Unseen in Public for Nearly 30 Years Provenance Documented by Ferrari Historian Marcel Massini
