    Detail on 1967 ¬*Lamborghini ¬*Miura¬*P400¬* 3027

    A bit of trivia on the car.

    "Miura P400 chassis #3027, engine #1130, production #26, built 9th June 1967 delivered to Norwich, UK-registered WGC 527 G. The first Miura in England. 3027 was the first of 2 Miuras sold to George Drummond, a banking heir and sometime vintage racer. Repaired and later restored by Omicron.
    the chrome trim and 'wheel are definitely post-production "upgrades".
    This accident and the resultant images are from 1972 when 3027 was 5 years old.
    P400S with chrome trim was the norm from 1969 on when 3027 was 2 years old.
    Interestingly, by October the 8th 1969 Drummond had already moved on to P400S chassis number 4256, so at the time of these images the car was either in possession of a subsequent owner or the Lamborghini dealer, either of whom decided to 'modernize' it a bit.
    If you look at the center console etc you're left in no doubt that's a P400.
    Also look at the tail in the pic where its being towed away. The lack of "Lamborghini" badge suggestive its a very early P400 (just the 26th in fact) as some of them had the script left off as you probably know.
    Interesting too that when Omicron restored the car they put it back to P400 satin black trim."

    I found a bit of stuff on the Z&W Wade of Whaley Bridge here:

    Toddbrook Reservoir - Local History - Whaleybridge Forums

    here

    https://mrtfleet.wordpress.com/diese...es/7-z-w-wade/

    and here

    Photograph

    But nothing on the others I'm afraid. (except the Manky Monkey Motors thread you posted on a few years ago where you mention Stoneheads Motors Re: Replacement steering damper)

    I'll have another look when I get a bit more time.
