This fantastic and highly original Vantage has a fastidious and detailed history.
It was first supplied to Mr Gordon Summerfield in February 1963. Second owner was Mr J.S.A. Primrose who purchased in 1965 and retained the car until 1983. The car was then ‘laid up’ for restoration but this was work was sadly never completed.
The car was eventually purchased by Mr Martin Colvill in 1988 who commissioned well respected Aston Martin specialist Andy Chapman to complete a full body-off restoration. The work commenced in 1988 and was completed in 1992 with costs exceeding £90,000. In September 1998 the car was sold to Mr Victor Gauntlett, the petrochemical entrepreneur and previous owner of Aston Martin. Next owner was Mr Colin Eccles who purchased in 1999, he retained the car until June 2007 when it was purchased by the current custodian.
RS Williams known and maintained for over 20 years, this is an important and highly sought after example.
