Looks like the yellow '72 SV to me. The other was a metallic blue S.


The other one (JLL 831K) was white when Rod bought it new Stu and was featured in Car magazine at the time, I've been chatting with the lucky chap who bought it from Amari's recently (it had been painted blue just before Amari got their mitts on it) and he's had it put back to the colour and spec Rod had it in.

Didn't he also own the H registered white one?

So he had 3 Miuras.

I should have looked up older pictures as I only found pictures of the White/Blue S and the yellow SV as both have been through auctions in the last 5 years.

Yep - I thought he only had two until someone sent me the yellow SV pic. When he bought the SV he joked about having ''a ten grand car parked outside me six grand house!''

I never had that happen to a Mini but my MG Metro met its end when the 20ft high car park wall at the local boozer fell over one windy night... :shock:
