Extensively recommissioned

MODEL HISTORY

Introduced in 1973, the Aston Martin V8 was fitted with 4 Weber 42 DCNF carburettors instead of the previous Bosch mechanical fuel injection from the DBS. Power output was quoted as around 300 BHP and the bonnet was altered to accommodate the carburettors. In automatic transmission form, the new model could reach 100mph in around 15 seconds and better 145mph flat-out.

This later model produced for only 18 months was announced in 1977 as the ‘S’ variant with improved Valve’s, Camshafts, Carburettors and a Vantage Exhaust system. There were also suspension improvements. These upgrades made the car quieter, faster and more economical. It also allowed peak power to be delivered at 6000 rpm. Fuel capacity was also increased to give the car greater range with a 25 gallon capacity. All this with a new purchase price of £20,000, a mere 6 times the price of an average MGBGT at the time. Only 184 of these models were ever made for the UK and very few manual examples exist today.

THIS MOTOR CAR

This example presented in Moonbeam Grey Metallic with Black Hide has been extensively overhauled by Oselli Engineering. The original engine was rebuilt 18 months ago to 6 litre specification. Gearbox, rear axle, braking system together with all brake lines and servos all refurbished. The wheels and tyres replaced. Air conditioning rebuilt to original specification. The interior carpet and headlining replaced together with re-trimmed front seats in the correct hide in the original colour. A period radio with MP3 connection fitted. A complete re-paint was also carried out incorporating the change from Red to Moonbeam Grey. All structural work was also completed to ensure the car was ready to be used for long touring trips abroad as was the owners wish. A straight through stainless steel exhaust system was also fitted.

His request was that he wanted a classic car to be able to perform better than new and be able to sit on the auto routes at three figure speeds the way it was designed to be used when new. The net result was a spend of over £130,000.

With an extensive service file and an original mileage of only 81k from new this is a rare example of a very useable classic Aston Martin. Now offered for sale and available for immediate inspection at The Classic Motor Hub.
