I don't believe there is a definitive answer to what should be what
color on these cars. Changes were made on the assembly line as cars were
being sent out. I know that the carburetors on the 250 cars were painted
black, but the 330 cars had a natural finish. My car, SN5053 was made before
Kalikow's SN5105, but mine has the natural finish on the carbs. Just as
some cars received "330 America" badges, and some did not, perhaps some
carbs got painted, and some did not. We may never know, and perhaps I shouldn't
Here is a complete and correct tool kit to envy!
The infamous 330 America badge! According to Mr. Kalikow, 330 America badges were mounted diagonally on the trunk lid, or horizontally. He chose the later to suit his taste.
You cannot imagine the inspiration to see a sister to my car sitting there in concours condition.
Sharing that corner of the garage was this beautiful 500 Superfast with covered headlights, and a 412 in the back.
There were even more cars to look at and explore including more modern Ferraris like a F50, 360 Spyder and 456GT, not to mention Jaguars, Rolls Royces, an Aston and a Cadillac, but I didn't want to overstay my welcome. I was privileged enough just to get a glimpse of this collection. I left the garage that day inspired to continue chasing the passion I have for these cars!
