    What do you guys think of this Jarama for sale. The paint colour, interior colour and wheels aren't original. Plus the floor has been lowered an inch to accommodate larger drivers and air con added. Its an original UK car but has spent time in Australia and Japan. It was "fully" restored in 2016 in Australia and was sold at Bonhams in 2017 for £135k

    If you're in the market for a RHD Jarama, then there's not a huge choice - 8 Series 1 and 18 Series 2 - or there abouts and therefore a sellers market. So, its more a case of deciding if what is available at the time suits your requirements. I sold my RHD Series 1 a month or two ago an it went within a week, for the price advertised, so I doubt this one will hang around long (even though I consider it 10% over on price).

    Assuming the car matches up to the description, its got to be worthy of serious consideration.

    Regards Andy

    Jonathan,

    You must jump on it, one of 18x GTS made RHD.

    Builtsheet :

    Telaio #10.608
    Motore #41315
    Marazzi carrozzeria #305
    Colore : Oro metalizzato / Bleu
    Consegna : 24/05/1974
    Concessionaro : Lamborghini UK


    I knew the car before it was advertised by my friend Mark Janssen in Australia, and Foskers in UK contacted me 5 years ago.

    It is fantastic to have the Miura wheels on a GTS, this is the ultimate look for me, RHD is not for me otherwise I would have already bought it (in LHD).

    It is simple, if you don't buy it, somebody else will. A rarity.
    Reminds me when I blew it because I passed on 2 different sunroof cars...cheap. One was 14k, the other 28k.

    Its really disappointing as it was particularly unique in that colour, with the Muira wheels on an S, RHD and in such lovely condition. I won't be so slow next time!

    Dear Mr. Nameche,

    did I understood it correctly that this Jarama was originally delivered from the factory in the following colors:

    Exterior color Oro Metalizzato (Gold) such as Miura SV #4878 and interior in Blue ?

    Kind regards

    Zdenek

    Dear Zdenek,

    According to the Jarama factory records that I hold, that's what is reported.

    Yes, it is same color as Miura #4878.... here is how it looks for a Jarama GTS...

    Did you buy it ?

    My pleasure
    Olivier

    Dear Mr. Nameche,

    no, i`m sorry, i`m not the buyer of this car.

    Thank you for the picture.

    I just never saw a Jarama in this color.
    A very interesting color combination.
    I would love to see a original picture of the blue interior.

    I was very surprised that a company like Girardo could offer such a vehicle so cheaply.
    Just my opinion, this car was a bargain for the new owner.

    Kind regards

    Zdenek

    They bought the car in Japan. From outside, they did not changed anything from the exterior/interior, so no major work was done from Girado afaik.

    Yes, and unfortunately, no value was placed on originality.

    I think the colour changed from yellow in the eighties.

    Originality seems less important with Lamborghinis or am I wrong. Not sure I would have been interested in it with its original colour scheme and lack of Muira wheels.

    Correct, you are wrong. :D
    An original or restored to original specs trades privately for the most money. And usually at auction as well. Yes, a car brought back to factory spec will most likely always bring in the highest dollar.

    Again, I am speaking about all the early models from a 350/400 up to even the Japlas (which have been bring some good numbers as of late).

    You take a 60s or 70s Lamborghini and return to that day it left the factory and you, as a seller, are in for a treat.

    Builsheet :

    VIN #10.368

    Motore : #40919


    Colori : Rosso Alfa / Nero

    Marazzi carrozzeria #185

    Consegna : 19/09/1972

    Cliente : Mr Maran of Verona - Italia

    It was sold by Klima Lounge to my client in Geneva some years ago, then he asked me for a comprehensive job : new paint, new engine and other jobs, all performed by Iain Tyrrell Classics in UK.

    After delivery he kept it about 6 months before trade exchange for something quite different... this is great GTS that was featured next to my silver Jarama GTS in article published on Classic Driver.com

    After years of lusting for a front engine V12 Lamborghini, I think I'm near a point where I can consider buying one. The Jarama checks all the boxes for me. I happen to like the styling and the prices fall into a reasonable range. I've read every post in this thread and looked at the Registry as well. I'm wondering if there are any additional resources you can point me to that will help educate me on what to look for and what to avoid.

    If any history is available on car 10340, I'd also appreciate that. My goal is to find a nice drive quality car, not a concours-level restored one. The car I saw had some issues that looked like the result of poor long term storage, which were red flags to me. While I know this is not a pursuit for the miserly, I don't have the appetite for an endless parade of repair bills.

    Any advice that can be offered on how to hit the sweet spot, cost wise, would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers
