Description

'On fast and smooth roads, the Volante's handling is remarkably impressive; the big car turns in cleanly with a trace of understeer. In tighter corners, firm use of the throttle will push the tail wide, but the slide is gradual and virtually self-correcting.' – Fast Lane.
First registered as 'CVT 929T', this V8 Volante was sold new via the Robin Hamilton dealership to Mr R Amsdon, PRA Company, New Cross, London in May 1979. The car was delivered finished in Florida Blue with fawn leather interior trim and matching hood. In September 1980 (at 8,658 miles) the Volante was sold to G A Boundey Ltd of London E5 and re-registered 'GJP 4', changing hands one month later when ownership transferred to Bauer Millet & Co of Epping for onward sale.
Re-registered again, on this occasion as 'EVU 127T', the Aston was purchased in January 1982 (at circa 22,000 miles) by the previous owner, Gavin Keyzar of Burley, Hampshire. The vendor purchased 'EVU 127T' via R S Williams in April 200
