Originally registered as FKX 3G by Aston Martin Lagonda in Newport Pagnell on October 3rd 1968 having been specified and constructed for use as a Sales Demonstrator. The options chosen above the standard specification were Olive green paint work with a Natural Connolly leather interior, a Vantage specification engine, manual transmission, power assisted steering, bumper over-riders, chrome wire wheels with three eared spinners, FIAMM horns, a heated rear window, seat belts, and a Motorola radio with an electric aerial.
After its duties were served as a Demonstrator it was delivered in March 1969 to the director of a family-run plant hire and haulage company in Birmingham. The recorded mileage at this time was about 6,500 miles. The gentleman had the car serviced by the factory during his ownership and in December 1970 when the odometer recorded 23,700 miles, he exchanged it with the factory for a new DB6. Having retained his personalised number plate it was at this time the car gained the licence UWD 637G that it still wears today. A copy of the Factory Build Sheet on file states that shortly after Aston Martin took the car in exchange it was acquired by car dealer based in Warwickshire, to be used as a demonstrator. After a few months they moved the car onto a new owner who recalled their time with the car very fondly. He was the managing director of the family clothing manufacturer in London E17, By this time the odometer recorded about 32,000 miles and a new gearbox was fitted just prior to his purchase. He continued to have the car maintained by the factory and reported to that the car was primarily used to commute between his home and the office.
