|Aston Martin V8, the powerful understatement|
As of September 1969, Aston Martin’s brand new V8 engine was fitted to the elegant coachwork of the six-cylinder Aston Martin DBS, introduced two years earlier. Displacing 5.3 litres, the alloy engine offered massive performance.
With more than 300 bhp, the DBSV8, later named the Aston Martin V8, emphatically announced its arrival into a select group of elite automobiles. Aston Martin manufactured the V8 from 1972 to 1989 and, during this period, released various versions.
This Aston Martin V8 is a Series III, which is characterised by its slightly raised bonnet that provides space for four double Weber carburettors that boost output to 310 bhp. The car is also instantly recognisable by the extra spotlights mounted in front of the grille. Only 967 Series III cars were manufactured between 1973 and 1978. This makes every Aston Martin V8 a particularly exclusive and rare find.
Aston Martin V8 Series III – 1977 in detail
The Aston Martin V8 Series III on offer from Noble House was delivered to Roger Jelley on 16 September 1977. He was the first of nine owners seduced by this beautiful Aston Martin.
The good news is that the identities of all the owners are known. Such details greatly contribute to the prestige of a classic automobile as significant as this V8 Series III. Even better news is that its full service history is also known. Its previous owners all contributed to the car’s documentation, which has carefully been kept together in a thick file. This documentation includes Aston Martin Service Vouchers and M.O.T certificates for the car as of 1981. These documents support the current low odometer reading of only 64,252 miles.
This right hand drive 1977 Aston Martin V8 provides the comfort of an automatic transmission, meaning that prospective drivers will have more time and opportunity to enjoy the car’s stylish and luxurious interior, finished in a unique, original Olive Green shade. The exterior colour ordered for his Aston Martin V8 by Mr Jelley was Old English White, although its current Jubilee Silver paint job is no less beautiful.
This Aston Martin is in need of a sympathetic restoration.
