    The same car at an auction in Paris in 1990. According to the auction catalogue the car was with Robert Wallace until 1989. I provided a copy of the catalogue to the seller which he was happy to add with the + 800 picture file for the car.

    A friend told me to watch the video. Does anyone know more about the Lamborghinis? I've been not following the 350 GTS close enough to judge if it's a conversion or 0328? I thought 0328 is somewhere in the US? Or is it still in Qatar?

    It is the original #0328 residing in Quatar for more than 20 years with a collection that have really increased since the last time I saw it...

    Thanks for the reply Olivier! Did 0328 change hands in Quatar or is it still in the same collection since the early 80's? Does the hardtop from your picture still exist?

    It is still in Quatar. Unfortunately, I believe the hardtop is missing, it is not on the pic I saw.






    Yes, #328 did the Barcelona Automobile exhibition with the period importer "ODIN", the car was delivered after the show !





    QUOTE=raymondQV;145236251]Isn't the red one you have under #328 -> #325? I thought #325 was found in spain in red before being restored and added to Albert's incredible collection.[/QUOTE]

    #328 was red in its life while belonging to an american gentleman.

    #325 was belonging to Al Burtoni (US Lamborghini specialist) who always wondered to restore it, but finally sold it through a middelman to Albert...

    #328 was first black. Later it was white/interior blue and than red/ interior black and later on black again. The car was owned by the family Al thani. I don´t know the current owner maybe it´s still in the family ownership.

    If anyone is interested in a very early 400GT,fully restored to original color combination "St. Vincent grey - tobacco interior",please send me a pm. The restoration will be finished in april. For real interest persons, i can share photos from the restoration process. The work is done by several very specific italian Lamborghini workshops which are since many years in touch with classic Lamborghinis. The restoration was supervised by Valentino Balboni.

    Is it a large rear window car 400 GT, or a small rear window car 400 GT 2+2?

    Marcel, your huge amount of effort in creating the Registro is much appreciated.

    Some updated info for you on #0358 : is was originally Azzurro Fiat metallizzato with Nero interior when supplied to Europe in 1966 but was changed to silver by Ross Therrien in 1970s shortly after arriving in Canada and before going to Ken Browning, a founding member of Lamborghini Club of Canada. Following recent completion of a 3 year total strip-down and rebuild, it is now returned to original factory specification, with assistance from Cristina and Valentino.

    It is currently available in the UK if anyone interested wants to pm me.

    Ciao
    Martin

    Dear Martin,

    Thanks a lot for your compliment! We are doing all we can to get a nice overview of all cars..
    And how nice you are wiling to share some pictures and information about the reborn #0358.
    That is a well known car, but great to see that it's been perfectly restored to it's original livery. Car looks brand new, nice color! Hope somebody will be very happy with this car soon!

    The car has been updated now with your pictures Martin:

    Hi Olivier, since you know the collection, do you have any idea wich chassis number the grey/red 350 GT in the video can be? Looks like an early car...thought it could be #0104, but that car might still be in Switzerland?

    Marcello,

    Again, compliments to you for your efforts, which should be recognized.

    My son & I have just sold the sublimely beautiful 350 GT 0223 from a gentleman collector to another in the USA, for a record sum, via Private Treaty.

    The details must remain private, so please contact me offline for the relevant information.

    Definitely not the right steering wheel. You would think after all that labor that they would put in the correct steering wheel. Now you have to say, what else is incorrect?

    May I kindly ask, what is a real 350/400GT Interim?
    Is it a car:
    1) with Lamborghini trans installed instead of the ZF trans
    2) a car that originally had an L351 engine installed and later came back to factory for installing the L401 engine
    3) a car that originally came with the L401 engine
    4) a car that came with 350 body, 400 frame, L401 engine and Lambo trans?

    Interim does not seem an official Lamborghini specification. Changings were made during the production.
    Would it be better to use the term 'last edition' for the cars listed at number 4)?

    As you mentionned, there were many modifications from the 1st 400 GT up to the last 23rd 400 GT, so called by collectors as "Interim"...

    The 400 GT was a model offered by Lamborghini, despite the fact there is none factory brochure or documentation, but they are several publicity made by the period dealers/importers... following indications of Ubaldo Sgarzi, sales manager.

    The definition of a 400 GT is a car made by Touring & Lamborghini at the plant on "Linea Montaggio" :

    * 350 body & frame

    * L401 engine
