    Good evening all ,
    Can any GTC owner let me know if it is possible for a 6'3" man to fit behind the wheel and comfortably driving a 330GTC please ?
    Thank you

    Thank you Bob, I forgot to mention that I am also of heavy build. Mind you, I fit very well behind my 365GT 2+2 :)
    The thing is , I have to fly quite a distance to try out this GTC and this is because there is no example available for me to try out closer that this car.

    The brake and clutch pedal have individual a fore/aft adjustment feature, it's very easy to adjust, it's a nut and bolt deal. As I recall, I think there was at least an inch, check it out when you look at the car.
    I'm only 5'11, but the aft adjustment for the seat is very generous, I'm not anywhere near the limit.

    I have driven a couple of GTCs, I would bet that you would fit with no problem. I find GTCs to be very roomy but I am 4 inches shorter than you.

    Cheers Jim

    I’m 6’6” and 235lbs.

    I fit, but, it is a little tight. I look very big sitting in the car. Not much headroom left and I have to really slouch and tilt my head if I’m wearing a helmet.

    Still, better them most vintage cars!

    I think you’ll be just fine.

    GTCs are great cars for cruising and have more room then most other contemporary cars.
    Good luck!

    6’4” 240. I modified the seat track to go back a little further and I’ve had no problems. I’ve driven my 365GTC hundreds of miles in a sitting several times.
