in 2006 I got this information:
Quote:
1983 Lamborghini Jalpa:

I bought this car recently because I loved the look of it and always wanted a Lamborghini. I was driving down the expressway about 60 mph in 5th gear and the engine locked up and stopped. Before that happened, the car always ran GREAT and shifted GREAT on side streets or the expressway. It was a great car. The inside is in great shape and the outside is great except for the passenger fender which has a dent on the top where something was dropped on it, and the side of the fender is scratched, see pictures. The pictures are from the place where it was towed to. I bought the car to drive for the summer and weekends and do not want to put any more money into it. I will try to answer any questions that come up. It is also for sale locally and on some Lamborghini sites, so I may need to end the auction early.

When I saw it, the first thing I did was go to your site Raymond! Looking at the pictures, you can tell the engine has been out, look at the strut bolts for more. One thing that did stick out, was the tool kit. I have never seen one with that material.

This car physically looks to be in decent shape. Being mostly complete is also a big plus. Would be nice to see this one saved!

I wonder what was found in the engine. If it was pulled out, they probably found something very ugly and too expensive to repair. Maybe even something non-repairable! Appears that they just decided to stuff everything back in and let the next owner "re-discover" the problem. Scary.

The owner-installed fuel injection is a turn off as well. I would expect it would be easier to convert it back to carburetors rather than troubleshoot any injection problems. The rest of the car looks to be in really good condition, though.

Same material as my Silhouette tool bag - presumably left over from then!

If anyone is going to view this car I wonder if they could perform one easy 10 second task for me!

Wow the car just sold for $18,000. Still seems a little high, for 10k more you can buy one that runs.

It is a little high, or maybe retail for a decent one is a little low. Probably 5 years ago, another red Jalpa with a blown engine & apart sold on ebay for 20k. I didn't write the vin number down. Prices on everything pre Audi Lamborghini have been on the rise for some time.
