Now you have the chance to acquire a unique piece of car history. This Espada S1 from 1969 most likely ran off the assembly line as number 66. The car was sold new in Switzerland in April 1969 to Mr. Pont who was a successful Swiss baker. According to the website Lamborghini Registry this car was originally delivered in Silver paint with black interior but I don’t think the black interior is correct. The car was painted red after a complete restoration in 2001 and has tan/champagne interior. The interior looks great with beautiful patina but very original so I would guess it has never been black.

The knock-off spinners are original black painted which was seen on very few Espadas, and together with the ZF power steering and air conditioning makes this car an unusual well equipped S1.

In 2003 I bought the Espada from it’s 2nd owner Mr. Dupont, and drove it from Lausanne, Switzerland to Copenhagen, Denmark

The car is in very good mechanical condition, the body and interior has beautiful patina without any eye-catching flaws. It has always been stored indoor during my 17 years of ownership and has not been driven in rain or winter.

The engine runs perfectly and the car drives very well, but the rear suspension springs are a little soft and a replacement is approaching.

The air conditioning compressor unit is currently not installed but are supplied with the car. I do not know if it is functioning but I assume it will need a rebuild.
