Supplied originally by Paramount cars, early servicing was conducted by that supplying dealer. The stamps on the service book indicate that in the following years, service and maintenance was provided by Works Service and the owner himself. An enthusiastic engineer with a workshop together with a vehicle lift at his home, the owner continued the maintenance of the car and a comprehensive record of the MOT history demonstrates mileages and the efficacy of that maintenance and the car is presented in outstanding mechanical order.
The interior of the car, with its unusual Burr Amboyna veneer is immaculate and the bodywork is in generally sound order but has some chip and scuffs to the paintwork. Whilst not detracting from the performance or overall appearance of the car, our client has instructed us to offer the car at a value for money price to allow the next owner the leeway to rectify those minor blemishes.
Over the past 2/ 3 years, the market has come to recognize the value of the classic V8 Coupe. Some of the last hand-built Aston Martins from their traditional home at Newport Pagnell – they are identified as landmark cars.
But the real reason this car will be chosen by its next owner is its history, its outstanding value and the pleasure derived behind the wheel – a useable and beautiful classic Aston Martin.
