    Spanish dealer plates, probably the same at the "Primer Concurso Internacional de Elegancia, Madrid". I would say it's Heiderich's car...

    I would say the same:

    Chassis number 4958

    Engine number 30669 (split sump unit)

    Factory air-conditioning

    Argento Indianapolis

    Pelle Nero nr. 8500

    Orulla Spagna (Ben Heiderich)

    The late Ben Heiderich advised me a few years before he passed away that he collected this car at Sant Agata and drove it directly to Madrid.

    Thanks Antonio for your confirmation.

    Lol, it cant be true, but it looks like the SV is lifted at the back and placed on a chair.

    I suspect they merely placed the rear bonnet on the car and did not actually connect it correctly, hence they needed to support the rear so it stays in place.

    Yeah, the car looks a little bit banana shaped with the rear bonet a little bit higher up.

    Another review. There must be dozens published, many of which are remarkably generic such as this one. I'm still embarrassed by the "Bible" title, but it was the publisher's choice.

    When I sent the finished book off to be published, I though we would sell a few copies to a few Miura fans. How wrong I was! We are now on our second edition already and are in multiple languages.

    Ive been contacted by Miura owners and enthusiasts worldwide offering some insights they feel I left out of the first printing. If you have any input at all, Im only too pleased to consider it for the next printing, and continue to advance the received information with any future printings...

    I'm glad to hear there still that much interest in the restoration side of the miura's. How are the prices holding up?

    I think Miuras have held up better than some classics, even though most seem to have corrected off last year's high by 30% or so...
