It is a fantastically original and complete low-mileage Miura S with matching numbers, original paint, and original interior. The car has covered less than 49,000 kilometers from new (31,000 miles) and was delivered new in Italy to its first owner Carlo Carità of Naples on 14 August 1969. On the 7th of June 1973, its long term keeper, a gentleman residing in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, purchased the car for $7,900, and kept the car for 41 years, until the spring of 2014 when a collector in Southern California purchased it. At that time, the car was just finishing a complete engine and transaxle overhaul at the highly regarded Lamborghini specialist Evans Automotive in Columbus, Ohio. The car has a very complete books set, a jack with bag, a tool roll with tools, spiral bound copy of the technical manual and parts catalog, and a host of fascinating period documentation. The documents include an original dealer directory, original owner’s manual, original guarantee card (showing both chassis number and engine number), due bill from Lamborghini dated 14 August 1969, Voxson radio booklets, Hirschmann antenna card and booklet, original insurance papers dated 11 August 1969, the invoice from when its American owner purchased it in 1973, and miscellaneous service invoices and correspondence from 1973 and 1974. Cosmetically, the car is in exceptional original condition. The paintwork is glossy and while it displays a few chips and scratches, it has survived impressively well over the years, with the same color intensity and arresting character as it has always had. Other than a section of the front clamshell between the headlamps, the car has never been repainted. The bright trim, glass, and lights are in excellent original condition. The wheels and spinners appear to have been refinished and the car sits on 9-inch wide rear wheels. The panel fit and operation is excellent, as to be expected in a car that has never been apart for paintwork. The interior is also in fantastic original condition. The dashboard and console remain in the correct dark grey vinyl material, while the seats and door panels are black. The car has fabric inserts, which, like the remainder of the upholstery, are excellent. The steering wheel has never been retrimmed, with a pleasant patina to the leather, and the spokes and center cap are excellent. The instruments and switches are equally nice and the headliner is excellent. The engine compartment is in excellent shape. The engine is beautifully detailed, and the chassis and suspension are tidy and attractive, but not freshly restored. The correct silk-screened FIAMM air cleaner tops are present, and the springs are correctly painted blue. The front compartment is similarly nice, with clean and attractive unrestored chassis. The level of correctness and completeness is high, including the often-missing rubber battery cover and spare tire hold-down straps. The front brakes are the late-type vented discs. The trunk is unrestored and is in very good condition, with original upholstery still in place. This is a truly outstanding opportunity to acquire an irreplaceable Miura S. Fantastically original, this matching-numbers car has low mileage, few owners from new (including one owner for 41 years), drives great, is finished in an iconic and stunning color combination, and is exceedingly complete. Given this unique combination of traits, it must be one of the best original cars of this type in existence, and it would be difficult to imagine a more desirable, original or complete Miura.»
