*One of 12 Oscar India V8s built with a manual gearbox
*An older restoration still presenting well
*Much history


While the Aston Martin V8 spawned several variants, the manual gearbox Oscar India model ranks among the rarest and consequently most desirable. This example, which left the factory with rear fog light, grille-mounted Cibie lamps and Weber carburettors has been owned by the vendor for five years, before which it was part of the late Arnold Clark's collection. It has been restored in the past but is said to remain in very good condition, and it comes with the original stamped service book, owner's manual, warranty card and old MoT certificates, along with numerous invoices.

MPH is delighted to offer this rare example from the V8 model range. With manual gearbox, much history and a just-right colour combination it is worthy of any serious collection.
