Identification Plates and Bands

There are a number of plates and bands on various parts of a 330 GT.  Of course, nothing is for sure in this area and I welcome more information.


Under the hood, there is the serial number plate, usually found pop riveted to the right hand side of the hood latch.  This has the type of car, "330 GT" for all cars in this registry.  The motor type is also 209 for all 330 GT cars.  The last item is the most important.  That is the chassis serial number surrounded by starsSometimes, '330GT' is stamped before the serial number.  On cars with A/C, the serial number plate is located on the sheet metal near the right front shock.

Four types were used by Ferrari during the 330 America and GT production.  Type 1 was used on the Americas and early (<~6400) 330 GTs.  Type 2 was intermixed with the type 1 in the early 330 GTs.  Type 3 was used from ~6400 through to the end.  Type 4 was intermixed with type 3 from ~8500 to ~9100.

The air cleaner top has a metal plate that specifies the type of FISPA filters to be used inside. 

The early models with the open sided air cleaners use the curved plate.  The later models with the air cleaner with intake tubes use the rectangular plate.

Each fuse block covers have a plate that describes what each fuse controls.

The most cars through ~8275 used 12 fuses while from 8279 on had 16 fuses.

Some interim cars and early 2HL (before 8279) had an extra 2 fuse block (14 fuses) for the electric windows.  The cover for that block did not have a plate on it.
