    I tried an email 5 months ago with a copy of my ownership and .. well .. nothing!

    Any ideas?

    I thought Sackey has the so-called build sheets or more like order form. I know he has the info for Countachs and had thought he had all of them from that era.
    I've always thought that Lambo of today are not really interested in the Lambo of yesteryear.
    I also believe that a lot of paperwork was destroyed

    It's more than 35 years and several owners (of the Company) since the car was built. Don't expect too much. From the documents that have been previously posted here, the detail is minimal (compared to Detroit).

    Please allow me to clarify the speculation raised in your post.

    - The information that I have covers the following variants only: Miura P400, P400S and P400SV, Countach LP400 and LP400S.

    - The information I have that covers production details of the aforementioned variants was given to me by multiple sources connected with the factory and has been accumulated over the last 20 years. Generally speaking The information I have clarifies production dates, colors, special applications and first owners, but build sheets are not generally part of my database, save for a few instances where I have owned the car personally.

    - Because I focus on the classics, I do not have ANY viable contact with the factory presently that would address the issue raised by the original poster. My sources that have helped supply my database are also no longer affiliated with the factory in any way.

    - I'm always delighted to share my Miura & Countach information and have done so in corresponding threads right here on FChat.

    Thanks.

    I've been trying to get this information for my car for 5 years. I've been to the factory twice to try to convince people to try to get it for me. I've given up on getting it. That said, don't let me discourage you.

    Hi Gary,

    I wouldn't even try to suggest that my info would help you, but here's my page on how to get a build sheet:

    http://www.400gt.com/data_sheets/build_sheets/index.html

    Every time I post it, I get a response that it's obsolete, or that the phone/fax numbers don't work, or something like that.

    But...that's how I got my build sheet 5 years ago. And I didn't get a real build sheet, just a typed statement saying what color the car was originally, etc -- you can see it on that link.

    Also you can poke around here for some interesting Espada info:

    http://www.400gt.com/estes/

    Again, probably nothing that covers your car, but it's interesting reading about the period.

    Good luck!

    Fred

    I do not understand why Lamborghini would treat their customers this way, very bad marketing
