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.
