Color looks weird, like a rendering problem. Maybe the color is better in person, after a good wax job.

It does look to be in very good original and well-maintained shape, at least it was when it was parked nearly 30 years ago.

If it was any other color, preferably a metallic one to show off the body's curves, I'd like it a lot better.

Seems like red paint always ends up looking/being oxidized. I had a 69 Alfa Romeo that color that I could buff and make look better for short periods of time. My son's BMW (E30) is very similar color, just buffed it and it looks good, but was just like that before.
When oxidized it almost looks pink.

Regardless, even with the less desirable color, I'd take it.

I agree, though a Countach would also be pretty cool.

While I wouldn't kick that Countach outa bed for eating crackers (or potato chips), I was really appealing to Fritz's more prurient interests.....

although the Miura isn't quite me nuther, it's way closer.
I would throw the Countach out of bed, or sell it for a Miura, or a Bizz, or 246, or Pegaso, or ...
crackers, popcorn, whatever ...

That's Eddie van Halens' Miura at the top of Panama, with tail pipe mics, as I hear tell.

now this....

with 1966 Ann-Margret, dressed up, hair down in the passenger seat.


sssshhhhhhh........

Now, if Magnum had driven a charging bull instead of a prancing horse....



Fritz might've at least screen-tested for the leading role.

BTW, it's a one-off V-12 Lambo protocar circa 1968, that sadly wasn't my HS graduation present, nor was the 1968 Dodge Charger R/T Hemi in the same colorway that I would've gladly settled for. If it could be found, and pried out of private hands these days, Lambo'd probably go for north of $20M, so Fritz, or whomsoever snags the Magnum role, has gotta drive very, very carefully.
