Introduced for 1973, the Series 3 version of Aston Martin's V8 employed a quartet of Weber 42 DCNF carburettors instead of the previous Bosch mechanical fuel injection. Fuel economy improved and even in automatic-transmission form the Weber-equipped car proved almost as quick as the preceding manual version, being capable of over 145mph flat-out.
Originally finished in Rolls-Royce Regency Bronze with fawn interior trim, '11580' was despatched from the factory on 18th January 1977 bound for Aston Martin (Sales) Ltd. Copies of factory records on file reveal that the car was equipped with automatic transmission; two door mirrors; lockable centre armrest; over-riders; Philips AM/FM stereo radio/cassette; side repeater flashers; side marker lights; and two QI fog lamps, while the paint finish is described as 'non-standard'. The Aston's first owner is recorded as Ahmed Abdulla Abdelghani of London, and the original registration as 'PYN 178R'. Later in its life the Aston was registered 'UKE 313R'.
The next earliest ownership record extant is a photocopy of a UK V5 dating from March 1998 (by which time the registration had changed to 'UKV 484R') when the car was acquired by Yarnolds of Stratford. The previous owner is listed as one Nicholas Seddon of Oxfordshire (from September 1995). In October 2001 the car was registered as 'J 96996' in Jersey, Channel Islands to Mr Geoffrey Hollyhead (copy Vehicle Registration Document on file). The current vendor purchased '11580' from Mr Hollyhead via Le Riche Automobile (CI) Ltd in May 2010 (bill of sale copy available).
This V8 has been on static display for a number of years and as such will require recommissioning prior to road use. Please also note this Lot is subject to UK import tax at the reduced rate of 5% if it is to remain in the UK.
