Description

1979 Aston Martin V8 Manual

Finished in its original distinctive livery of Kentucky Blue with Magnolia piped Dark Blue hide interior and Burr Walnut fittings. Fully restored and completed with useful upgrades.

Launched in October 1978 at Birmingham International Motor show, the introduction of the new and updated V8 body design, with interior improvements and general upgrades added greatly to the luxury and performance appeal of the V8 range.

This tastefully specified 1979 model ‘OI’ (Oscar India) V8 coupe, has recently been treated to a restoration carried out by renowned Aston Martin specialists. Works included chassis and body restoration, a bare metal repaint and complete interior retrim with new Magnolia hides, new Wilton carpeting and interior finishers re-veneered.

The original V8 engine has received a complete rebuild to its 'as built' specification, while the cars suspension and brakes have also been rebuilt, incorporating upgraded suspension components with the original standard brakes replaced, with improved AP brake calipers, discs and pads. A substantial history file accompanying the car, documents the comprehensive works professionally carried out to the high standards as presented. Since the extensive works were completed, the car has now covered less than 1,000 dry weather miles.

Fitted with the optional ZF 5-speed manual gearbox, this example of the AMV8 provides spirited performance with excellent Grand Touring capabilities. Being both rapid and comfortable to drive, with ample passenger and luggage space and whilst being cosseted, in air-conditioned comfort.

Rare to find with this level of restorative works completed, in this condition and at this price point, this well specified AMV8 cannot fail to be admired and be enjoyed, in the knowledge of a comprehensive restoration having been carried out.

Available for viewing and demonstration now at our Hertfordshire showrooms.
