  • 'SOL 968M' was purchased by the vendor's company, Deeter Engineering Services Ltd on 1st October 1997 from a Mr W Mitchell of Dronfield Woodhouse, Sheffield. On 1st January 2003 ownership of the car was transferred to the vendor. Finished in grey metallic originally, the Aston was repainted dark blue while owned by Mr Mitchell. Since acquisition by Deeter Enginering Services, the car has covered approximately 13,600 miles, benefiting from various repairs and improvements costing around £16,000.

    Works carried out include a complete engine top-end overhaul and unleaded conversion, while the radiator has been refurbished and a stainless steel exhaust system installed. Parts replaced include the engine mounts, viscous fan unit, coolant hoses, ancillary drive belts, front engine pulley and oil seal, heater control valve and the heater flexible duct. The suspension, brakes and steering have been extensively overhauled, receiving new front wheel bearings; front track rod ends; front brake discs, pads and pipes; front shock absorbers; front and rear suspension springs; and new brake hoses all round.

    Electrical parts renewed include the headlamps, headlamp flasher unit, three new centre console rocker switches and the automatic aerial. A new speedometer has been fitted and the sound system upgraded with a new stereo radio/CD player.

    Turning to the body/chassis: two sills have been replaced, chassis sections replaced with stainless steel, and the lower section of body re-sprayed. Other improvements include five new 16" alloy wheels shod with Avon ZZ1 255/50ZR16 tyres; driver's carpet set replaced; a new complete boot carpet set and petrol pump cover; door lock plates re-chromed; 'Aston Martin' badge and rear over-riders replaced. In addition to the foregoing, the vehicle has been regularly serviced and any minor faults rectified as they occurred. There are bills on file from marque specialist Rikki Cann and another engineer.

    Only a few weeks prior to sale the car was fitted with a new cabin carpet set., also new are the heater air inlet hoses and the rubber window seal around the driver's door. Finished in blue with matching leather interior, this evidently well cared for Aston Martin V8 is offered with current MoT/tax and Swansea V5 document.
