Offered by Fantasy Junction with silver paintwork over tan leather for the interior, serial number 01174 is a mid-production 1967 model that was acquired by the current owner through RM Auctions four years ago. Hammered for $451,000 at the Amelia Island event, the car is currently listed at $485,000 with “discreet and tasteful updates for spirited driving.”
What kind of modifications, you’re asking? Fantasy Junction mentions coilover suspension, MSD electronic ignition, and climate control that doesn’t clash with the well-preserved cockpit. Pop the trunk, and you’ll be greeted by professionally-installed black carpet and a Borani wire wheel. Yokohama AVID Ascend all-season tires are also featured, along with the correct air cleaners for no fewer than six Weber twin-throat carburetors.
A clean and tidy gran turismo as far as the undercarriage is concerned, this numbers-matching Lamborghini 400 GT displays a lovely patina on the leather upholstery and chromed window trim. Minor pitting on the door handles and hood vents is also worth highlighting. Although the odometer shows 43,028 kilometers (26,736 miles), true mileage remains unknown.
According to the selling vendor, “the steering, brakes, and suspension all have a very good, harmonious feel, offering nice feedback and capable responses.” Considering that motorsports engineering legend Gian Paolo Dallara worked on the car together with engineer Paolo Stanzani and test driver Bob Wallace, this blast from the past should better drive as well as it looks.
