Footnotes

  • Launched in January 1986, the Aston Martin V8 Series 5 adopted the latest Vantage specification, engine excepted, the following year and thus boasted the Vantage's revised bodywork and 16" wheels. Fuel injection was reintroduced on the Series 5, this time a Weber system rather than the earlier Bosch, allowing a flatter bonnet devoid of bulge or intake. Power output of the standard car was now quoted as 305bhp and even in automatic transmission form the V8 could reach 100mph in around 15 seconds and better 145mph flat-out.

    Summarising its 1973 road test of a V8 automatic, Autocar magazine concluded that it was: 'A well-equipped car with magnificent stride for long journeys,' while Performance Car, testing a V8 Auto in 1978, reckoned Aston Martin: 'have set out - it has been so for years - to make a car of character, with a chassis of conventional but exceptional ability and manners, with enough performance from its hand-built engine to stand most comparisons and the prestige of English bespoke coachbuilding.'

    Finished in Jubilee Silver with blue-piped Parchment leather upholstery, this automatic-transmission V8 was originally supplied by Stratton Motor Company to Eric Goodwin, one of the directors of Tiphook plc, a UK-based transport services company that enjoyed global success before collapsing acrimoniously in the mid-1990s. All Tiphook's directors had Aston Martins at the time. 'E36 OVF' has extensive service history consisting of numerous invoices issued initially by Hyde Vale Garage followed by HWM and latterly Stratton Motor Company, covering the period 1988 to 2009 (at 64,350 miles). The current odometer reading is 64,602 miles.

    We are advised that the sills have been replaced recently and that the car runs and drives well. There is the usual corrosion visible through the paintwork around the front and rear screens but this could be rectified with only minimal expenditure. Offered with the aforementioned service history together with the original owner's manual and warranty card, this rare fuel-injected V8 Aston Martin represents exceptional value for money.
