Description

The original Service Voucher Book for this car notes that it was supplied to its first owner, A Pearson of Kenilworth by The Aston Martin Centre of Sutherland Avenue, Coventry. The delivery date is noted as 18th April 1975.
The next significant date in the history file for the car is a receipt for £11,050 signed by Mr. Pearson, for the sale of the car to its second owner, The Walford Manufacturing Company of Birmingham represented by their Managing Director Peter Clasper.
The car remained in Mr. Clasper’s stewardship, transferring ownership from his company to his personal name in March 1990, until his recent and sad demise. The Executors of his will asked Byron International to sell the car on their behalf which we did in 2013.
Acquired by the current owner following an engineer’s report, the car has been fastidiously maintained since with diligent repair to the sills and around the off side chassis leg. The owner has also kept a personal log of mileages and weather conditions for all journeys under his stewardship.
