Oh no! I'll buy it though...........
Bob Huber alert! .... Bob Huber alert!
Even the Espada he rescued didn't look THAT bad though.
I hope the driver and passenger are ok!
Hahahaha Tony! Way to go! Surprise I'm just seeing this video now. Been out since January.
Well done Martin! Beautiful article.
fantastic photo shoot of the pair... thanks for sharing
BTW, Monica & Rene's engine was fixed by our mechanic as well Edouard.
Well done Tony! Well done Martin!
Three Urracos attended the Silverstone Classic recently, a P200, P250 and P300.
Three Silhouette owners attended but no cars.
The V8s were outnumbered by eight Espadas...
For your pleasure.
Hei, ohhhh I must have even been blind. The Article on Petrolicious has still be mentioned here. Sorry for double posting. Martin
No problem! It is better to post it twice than not posting it! By the way, your car is really beautiful!
hi there, I am new here and have just purchased a P300. the car is missing the spare wheel and the air deflector shield which should guide the air out of the compartment again. I believe it is installed there for a purpose so I would like to install one. However I have no idea what it looks like, the size and how it sits in there. can anyone help me? ;-)
hope to get any help and have some nice discussions here...
btw: sad to the see that Austrian Urraco smashed...
Mine was also missing both the spare wheel as well as the air deflector. I'm making one using one from another Urraco as the template. My guess is that the main purpose, is to prevent the rain entering to the slots ending up in the front compartment of the car.
I strongly believe that this deflector is necessary for the airflow. there is so much air coming in, just think about the 2 fans which add to the air flow as well. But it sure is a good protection from rain as well. Please Uno, if you have the template please let me and us know as much possible about size and material. I wonder if this shield needs the spare wheel to be hold in place...
In an old car magazine I found a test about the Urraco showing a pic that also shows a strap to hold the spare wheel down...nice ;-)
I just went on my first drive with the freshly rebuilt Urraco. And I'm so grateful to the job done by Ian, Max and their team at Cheshire classic cars. It runs so smoothly, it is really a jewel of a car!
It'll now have to come back to Switzerland and get ready for the Polo Storico concorso.
Can't wait to see her back on the Swiss roads.
I'm delighting to meet you there !
Very nice, love that special color
Urraco's are very nimble to drive, I once almost bought P300 #20003 in 2000, but took the jalpa instead.
Nimble indeed. I had tremendous fun on english B roads yesterday!
Looking forward to meeting you there too!
I am confused, because unlike as it is shown in the spare parts catalogue and also on many displayed P300s the vacuum hoses of my brake boosters are differrent.
As you can see in the drawing there is one hose that comes from the engine which is then divided into 2 hoses, one goes to the vacuum tank an one goes to the boosters.
On my car there are 2 separate hoses coming from the engine. One goes to the tank and one goes to the boosters. Is there any connection inside the engine?? Can anyone explain this to me??
I'm going to be there but I've not registered as I can't get my Urraco to the event from the UK. I'd love to meet up and share stories. Olivier an opportunity to chat would be great per chance you k ow any more about my cars early Belgian history (20080).
Em42 - Iain at Cheshire is a very nice guy for sure. I visited them about 4 weeks ago and saw your car being prepared.
Detail on 1975 Lamborghini Urraco P300 20080
Beautiful car! Looking forward to meeting you there!
Thanks lemacc for the reference to the registry. I have all the records from Omicron work and am now trying to fill in the time from manufacture in 1975 until then. Ciao
great car! love the colors
Heading back home!
Thanks a lot!
My steering rack. Is it different from others? Looking to remove it to replace the commonly broken bush (where ever that is located in this rack). However, since it's been leaking fluid since I got it, I am wondering if my symptoms are from lack of fluid. I can not pull it away from the firewall as it is still attached (though I unbolted everything. Thinking the bar with teeth, while turning the steering wheel, comes out the passenger side and the that housing stays until the rack part it out, then that housing come out.
At highway speed the steering wheel is not smooth, it moves in increments which is very unnerving. In every car we are moving our steering wheel ever so little in a straight line on the highway. This, in notches.
Some education on these racks would be appreciated.
At the Salon Prive Sale held on 2nd September RHD P250 15768 sold for £96188 including premium...
$124,696 USD....nice. Beautiful car and color. So 70's cool.
So, I pulled the steering wheel and removed the rack. Here's some photos for those interested. Next is to clean/degrease and fill with fluid to see where it is leaking. As you can see where the dampener bolts, a past repair.
And a picture of the one of the coolest steering wheels on earth.
Sadly, these racks are all rubber boot that are clamped on and expected to hold fluid I believe. 2 ends and that long piece in the middle is rubber.
Caveat emptor! The boots used for the ZF racks fitted to LHD cars are completely different to the ones used on the TRW racks fitted to RHD cars!
There is no connection inside the engine. I guess there is a couple possibilities. The T fitting might have broke, it was probably plastic, and the separate line was an improvised fix. T fittings like that are easily found at Home Depot in the plumbing section, and you can get them in brass for just a couple bucks.
Another possibility is someone though it might improve the vacuum & pedal feel by pulling off of both sides of the engine.
It was for sale at Tom Hartley for £99,950 for ages so with a bit of haggling it could probably have been bought from the dealer for less than that.
Exactly so and perhaps with a guarantee as well...
I like this two P250 examples with their original interior.For sale now.
See you in one week...
does the white one reside in Belgium ?
This one's for you Emilio, you'll find out why...
That car has got such a great color on it!
Thanks a lot!!!
verde on an urraco is fantastic!
Totally agree! Just took her for a quick spin tonight. What a fantastic car.
Someone recently was cashing tool roll details so I finally got around to photographing mine.
I'm sure there's tools missing. The roll itself is made of heavy canvas with brown trim (probably vinyl) and leather buckles.
Looking forward to meeting some of you this weekend in Switzerland. Who is actually formally registered (I am not and won't have my car there sadly).
I am and I'll be there with the Urraco.
I regret not being in Switzerland this coming weekend. Meanwhile keen V8 owners might like to consider bringing their cars to Cristina and Davide's annual V8 gathering held in Sant' Agata during May. Very relaxed and great fun...
Btw that blue tool roll is the same as used for the Silhouette.
