1969 Lamborghini P400S

While Italian cars are known for their dramatics and flair, perhaps the most arresting of all of them is the Lamborghini Miura. It's amazing to think that this car is almost 50 years old, as its design still looks out of this world to this day. This particular Miura for sale in Texas has been restored and is a numbers matching example.

1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S

Lamborghini Houston proudly offers our superb 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S restored to SV Specifications by renowned expert Gary Bobileff. This Miura, serial # 3952, is finished in its original colors of Verde Miura exterior over a Skai Beige (Caramel) and Testa diMoro (Dark Brown) interior. It was production # 337 and was completed at the factory on March 6, 1969 as a left-hand drive version and delivered to Italian dealer Lamborauto in Turin, Italy. It is a correct, numbers matching example with its original engine #2871.

Miura P400S #3952 was owned in the early 1980s by race car driver Ted Titmus from Southern California. During his ownership, the car was brought to Bill DeCar of Bill’s Auto Shop in the Los Angeles area for restoration work. The project stalled and the car sat in the shop until Bill decided to buy the car for himself. He was never able to complete the project though. In 2009, Gary Bobileff purchased the car for himself and began restoration work. While undergoing restoration, the Lamborghini was purchased by a new owner who requested additional, popular SV Specification modifications be performed as well. These upgrades included flared rear fenders to precise SV dimensions to accommodate the wider SV spec wheels. Mechanicals were rebuilt and a split sump lubrication system was fitted separating the engine and transmission fluids as employed on the original SV. This is a step many P400 and P400S owners choose to take when performing this level of restoration. This engine also features handmade, nickel-plated velocity stacks to aid breathing and give an even more aggressive look. The new owner further requested a correctly modified nose with new front and rear bumpers be installed, plus new taillights and front lamps per SV specifications. The car was refinished in its original, striking color of Verde Miura. The original interior colors were used; however, genuine supple leather was chosen in place of the original leatherette material.

This is an extremely rare opportunity to obtain such a unique piece of automotive history. This Miura has seen less than 100 miles since its complete restoration. The restoration work and tasteful SV upgrades performed by Gary Bobileff are nothing short of spectacular with particular attention spent to detail and superior drivability.

For a good Miura with provenance, about a half million dollars is the entry point for such a vehicle. Given the quality of restoration and the fact that this is a numbers matching car in its original color, I'd suspect this car will sell for somewhere north of $600,000.
