Odometer Reading: 84193
MOT Expiry: TBA

Supplied new by Sloane Street Aston Martin, this example on offer was delivered new to its first owner, Harlow and Jones Ltd of Haymarket, London on the 2nd March 1977. Presented in period colour combination of Cairngorm Brown over magnolia leather interior, the vendor reports that the Aston drives very well having completed various European and UK tours.
The V8 has been treated to much restoration work during its life with previous works including a repaint to the body as well as extensive renovation to the engine compartment. Both the paintwork and bodywork are very presentable and show little sign of age, very few stone chips are present to the front bumper and the shut lines are notably very good. Also in fine fettle is the engine bay, which is clean and tidy having benefited from many years of dry storage. The interior presents well, including the leather which is very clean and shows no signs of mistreatment. Door cards, dashboard and centre console remain in very good order.
The comprehensive history file that accompanies the car includes many old Mot test certificates, sundry invoices and photographs detailing the respray. The Aston Martin handbook, service voucher, and instruction booklet are also present. Offered to the open market from eight years of single ownership and having had just three previous owners, this very period looking example showing a modest 84,193 miles on the odometer would fit into any serious collection and would be a fantastic touring car for the new custodian.
