Beschreibung

This beautiful car was first registered in the USA in 1987 – the history folder notes its original Aston Martin build sheet with the build complete and despatched to Aston Martin North America on 21st November 1986. It is a thoroughly researched history folder with a certificate noting its first retail purchaser as Carriage House Motorcars of New York with delivery on 4th June 1987 with the car supplied through an authorised Aston Martin dealer, Lake Forest Sportscars of Illinois.

Another owner whose details are recorded is Paul Hallingby known as Barney – a true enthusiast, he has numbered a Sanction II DB4GT Zagato, a DB7 Zagato and an original Vanquish with a Works Service manual gearbox conversion amongst his Aston acquisitions. He bought this V8 Volante on 24th May 1996 for $106,000 + taxes later exchanging it for the DB7 Zagato. When he saw the current owner’s photos of the car, the first thing he said about it was that it no longer had the ugly Federal bumpers and it is something that makes this car really stand out from the crowd.

And the enthusiasm of Barney Hallingby for his Astons is that every one of his Astons have been bought to be driven and the 5-speed manual gearbox on this Volante reflects that enthusiasm.

The current owner had a full nut and bolt restoration done on the car where every panel was removed painted and refitted in its original colour so its finish is outstanding and close up, the superb panel fit reinforced the quality of that restoration. The bare chassis was epoxy coated and as well as the invoices for the body restoration, there are 18 pages listing the parts used in the engine rebuild as well as final attention to detail like the Vantage manifolds and the fitted luggage. An important observation from the body restoration was that there was no sign of previous damage repair on the car nor evidence of any corrosion – the good just got better!

Originally acquired by the current owner to compliment a luxury yacht charter business, the car was stored for nearly ten years after acquisition and the engine was rebuilt in 2019 after that period of inactivity and together with the body restoration, this makes this car a really outstanding purchase for any buyer.
