Delivery Pack

Warranty is provided for twelve months. Currently this is an AutoProtect Premier Plus product with a vehicle purchase price claim limit. This policy is available for various periods and claims limits, full details of which are contained within the policy booklet. You can purchase additional cover from AutoProtect via our Service department or direct, either when your current policy is about to expire or prior to commencement of initial policy start. We will be happy to provide information regarding pricing upon your request.

The policy covers all mechanical and electrical parts (including labour to fit them) of the insured vehicle against mechanical breakdown. There is no restriction to the number of claims you can make. However, the vehicle must be serviced by a VAT registered garage in line with the requirements laid out within the policy booklet. Mechanical breakdown is defined by AutoProtect as; the failure of a component causing a sudden stoppage of its function, for a reason other than wear and tear, normal deterioration or negligence. Inclusion of the optional roadside assistance is also provided. Again, full details are laid out in the policy booklet.

Road fund licence included is the provision of a six month licence, unless balance of existing licence is agreed at point of sale. Twelve months licence is available at extra cost.

A new MOT test will be carried out as part of the vehicle's preparation, to ensure that the components are functioning in line with the manufacturer's specification, commensurate with age and mileage.

Any accident damage that we are aware of or have been made aware of by previous owners, third parties or HPI register will be declared.

Mileage and service history, in addition to whatever visual checks are possible, all document and service stamps are checked and a National Mileage Register check is carried out via HPI.

Next service due is carried out as per manufacturer's recommendations within the owners guide.

If the vehicle you are choosing is still under manufacturer's warranty, you can choose to extend this via our Service department. Similarly if the vehicle is of an age and mileage that allows, then again an Aston Martin warranty can be purchased in lieu of the AutoProtect Premier Plus product. The choice is available to you - please ask to speak to our Aftersales Advisor in our Service department for full details.

Regarding classic vehicles, every effort is made to ensure that they are of a quality and standard befitting the marque and how we choose to support it. Due to age and mileage, in most cases vehicles cannot be supported by either the Aston Martin extended warranty or the AutoProtect policy, however the Aston Martin classic warranty may well be available to purchase - again please ask for details.

    Service History

    Aston Martin V8 Saloon

    This Series III V8 Saloon was first registered in September 1978 on a ‘T’ suffix.  Being a very late built Series III car its ‘S’ specification ‘Stage One tune’, from new, as denoted by original matching chassis and engine number.Also built with rare and desirable 5-speed manual transmission.

    Finished in Storm Red non-metallic paint, Magnolia leather and natural carpeting throughout.  Purchased by its fourth owner in 2007 from Aston Workshop, Co. Durham, having been fully prepared and serviced with new sills courtesy of their own workshops, with reputedly only 33,600 original miles.  The car’s third owner and AMOC member had previously owned the car from September 1980 till 2007.

    The car now indicates just over 41,000 miles having been serviced/repaired as required, with regular MOT tests that verify its little use along with a hand written log of trips completed in the car.  File contains a number of sundry and service invoices, with lots of MOT’s and a Heritage Trust Certificate of Factory Build record.

    The car has now been fully inspected in our own Workshops and given a clean bill of health after minor mechanical works, hoses, belts, thermostat, etc.  We also cleaned off, inspected and then re-protected/undersealed the chassis.  Additionally we had to renew the front windscreen so removed both front and rear screens, treated and rectified the minor oxidisation that was evident, then fitted a new front windscreen and refitted the rear screen, resealed correctly after painting the roof and screen apertures.

    A very sound car both mechanically and structually, that drives extremely well, great interior and very well presented.
