Description

Aston Martin DBSV8 Automatic This very original left-hand drive 1972 Aston Martin DBSV8 automatic was completed on the Newport Pagnell production line in 28 March 1972 and was a home delivery in the UK to Mr. Morris Borgreen.

The car was UK registered and used in the UK until shipped to Scarsdale, New York where it lived most of its life. Supplied directly from the Aston Martin factory it was ordered with the following extras: Air conditioning, Lear Jet stereo music system, door mirror, Fram air horns, two headrests, Wasp steering lock with ignition buzzer, two seat belts and touring kit.

The paint is Burnt Almond with Natural leather trim and Beige carpets. The car was shipped back to the UK in April 2019 with a total mileage of 8,000 miles.

The car is like a time-warp in so many ways and so pleasing to see exactly how these cars left the factory, as this is totally original in all ways. The paint is a little faded, the trim is time preserved and the engine runs like it did back in the 1970,s.

The car had a current MOT and is in the final stages of being UK registered and we hope to retrieve the original UK registration number HLH 159K. Lovely car with great history.
