Description

Finished in its original Imperial Burgundy with Magnolia hides, this remarkable AM V8 has had just 2 owners and covered 30,800 miles only, from new. Consistently cherished from the day it was built, this rare example was optioned with the ZF 5 speed Manual gearbox, headrests, burr walnut dashboard fittings and a locking centre armrest. The first owner, Mr Stanley Milton-White was well known in Aston Martin circles having owned several of the marque, maintained his pride and joy superbly. The second owner purchased the car directly from the first subsequently maintaining the car sensitively over the last 21 years and limited mileage covered. A comprehensive history file attests to the care and attention devoted.

The quotient of originality found in this exceptionally preserved example is simply, not available elsewhere. Supple, original and unmarked Connolly hides, original paintwork, matching numbers, excellent chassis condition and the simple original lines, free of any later accessories or fitments, endows the car with an exceptional time warp feel. The car is presented in the as built specification and in a similar condition to that in which it was delivered to its first owner.

Complete with original service history, invoices and MOTs, build details, original books, jack and tool roll, purchase invoice and Waso keys. Featured in Classic and Sport car magazine (Sept 1997) an original copy is included.
