Hi Maarten,

from first sight it looks like the GTC 365 uses the same headlights and chrome rim like late 330 2+2. In my GT 330 2+2 (1966) Carello 07.480.800 are installed. If you have similar Carellos the chrome rim will be also the same. If so I can give you the dimensions.

Hello Ed and Dieter,
thank you for your reply.

My rims looks exactly like the one from Dieter. I did not have the original lamp and ordered it new from ferrari as it is still available. .The carello number is 03.485.700. The rings i have fit the lamp but not the body of the car. On my rings is printed Marchal 104910. The partnumber from Ferrari for the correct ring is 242-82-030-12. This part is identical on the 365 GTC and 330 GT 2+2 as i see on the partsmanual of both cars.
So yes Dieter i please give me the dimensions. Francesca Brandoli stills sells various rings for Ferrari but needs the dimensions.

Hi Maarten,

just for clarification. I assume you need the dimensions for the outer chrome rings, not for the inner ones like on the pics from mine and your headlights. Please let me know.

Hello Dieter,
Yes i need the dimensions of the outer chrome rings who were not in the pictures i posted.
For general information Ferrari used Marchal headlights for 330 GTC/S until mid 1966 after that Carello for 330 GTC/S and 365 GTC/S.
And it now appears these carello units were also used in 330 GT 2+2.
regards maarten

Hi Maarten,
I put off the ring and took the caliper for dimensions. Here is my quick drawing about the details. I hope it helps.

Good luck

Dieter

Hello Dieter,

I understand the drawing perfectly now ,it is so detailed you can almost remanufacture one!
One size does not match with the rubber ring mounted between chassis and ring so i wondered if i got the partnumbers wrong..
Unfortnately i got the wrong info on the ferrari partnumber, the rings for 330 GT 2+2 are not 243-82-030-12 so your ring is slightly different than mine.
The ring for my 365 GTC is a ring used on Carrello headlights on 330 GTS/C and 365 GTC/S.

So anyone who can give me the outside dimensions would help me a lot.

At least there is a detailed drawing of the 330 GT 2+2 headlight ring on the forum now.

best regards
Maarten
