A few weeks later, on October 8, it was delivered new, wearing Giallo Miura and a black interior, to German Lamborghini importer H. Hahn. Following its delivery to H. Hahn, it is believed that the car travelled directly to Japan, where it remained for over 30 years and was later featured in a 2004 issue of Japanese magazine Supercars for a track test. Following the publication of the article, chassis number 4942 found its way to a new owner, who commissioned a full restoration. Partially through the restoration process, after the engine and transmission had been removed and the paint stripped from the body, the car was painted orange, but unfortunately, the paint was improperly cured and the finished was ruined as a result. At that point, the restoration was halted, and in 2007, the car was sold “as is” to a Rancho Santa Fe collector, who decided to continue with the restoration. The interior was found to be mostly intact, with black leather seats with blue inserts and a black vinyl dash. The paint was stripped once more, and the original color, a deep yellow that shines almost orange, was found in the door jams; thus, the car was repainted in that color. The subsequent full rebuild that followed took more than a year to complete, and it was documented with over 400 photos. The chassis was found to be rust free, and the engine was confirmed, according to information provided in Joe Sackey’s book, The Lamborghini Miura Bible, as the original unit that was delivered with the car, which had been rebuilt from the ground up, along with the ZF five-speed transmission, the limited-slip differential, the Girling ventilated disc brakes, and the suspension. The electric system was replaced with new components, and the interior was upgraded to full leather, not just on the seats, which was an option when the car was new. Additionally, the car sits on its original Campagnolo magnesium wheels, which are wrapped in Avon tires. This Miura has resided with its current owner in Toronto since 2010, and it benefits from a recently completed full rebuild of the engine, carburetors, and transmission by Lamborghini specialists. At the same time, the exhaust was properly cleaned and ceramic coated, the main radiator pipe was replaced and the radiator was recored, and the gas tank was removed, fully cleaned, and restored. At this time, a heavy-duty battery was installed, with a battery cut-off switch, and a second switch was installed to cut off the fuel pump, so the carburetors can be completely drained of fuel before storage. Also, all the wiring components were inspected and rectified. Following the completion of the rebuild, the car has been driven nearly 1,000 kilometers, and the owner reports that it runs beautifully. The full-leather interior is in wonderful condition, and upon opening the glove box, a small sheet of paper can be found within, which lists the date and mileage of the car’s every outing with its current owner. In addition to all of the receipts from its engine rebuild, which total to $137,000, the car is documented by a complete photo album, which documents its previous restoration, and its original owner’s manual.»
