Related to this one, perhaps?


Don't know, but doubt it.  There's also an [FI.348] and other similar variations at the event today.  I assume different owners.

"I" could fix that car using good used parts quite cost effectively, but the insurance corruption bus will probably pick it up.

You've got enough work on your hands without taking this type of job.  :thumbsup:

My uncle pranged his Muira SV during the Ferrari Car Club of Australia's last visit to The Surfers Paradise Race Track.
You will know the car,,,,,,,,
A right hand drive red with gold trim Muira SV owned in Australia........can only be one in existance.

The quote to fix the car was well over $30,000 AUD just for the parts........not to mention $12,000+ for a respray.
This was early 1980's........hence the cheap prices as quoted.

This car was never considered a write off..........never would be.
Special exotic cars of value are not written off unless owned by a barbarian.

My uncle imported all the parts himself for less than $5,000 AUD.......
With the respray etc, car fixed better than new for under $20,000 AUD.
At that time a similer Muira sold at auction in England, I think, for about 1&1/2 million dolars AUD.........
The $20,000 was not a bad investment.
Even $50,000 would have been a give in.

Real enthusiasts do not write these cars off........they fix them to BETTER than new condition.
They sometimes even improve them for no apparent reason.

My apologies to Ash.........Spelling is not my strong point.
Not in Italian, anyway.
Besides.........i often put a u in Lambourghini........LMAO

For JMillard..........
Do your homework.
From memory the car was bought by an Arab.
At the quoted auction price, in pounds sterling, it converted to almost one and a half million Aussie dollars.
Many of us can blame Bob Hawke for the destruction of our dollar........but they were the quoted values.

Yeah.......OK

I think your memory may be faulty - I've done my homework, how about you?

P400 SV/J
One of these cars, chassis #4934, was built for the Shah of Iran. The Shah stored this car under armed guard with another SV in Royal Palace in Tehran. After he fled the country during the Iranian Revolution, his cars were seized by the Iranian government. The SV/J was sold into Dubai in 1995. In 1997 this car was sold via a Brooks auction to Nicolas Cage, at US$490,000, becoming the model's highest ever price sold in an auction.
