1974 ASTON MARTIN V8 COUPE --White with Black leather interior and Black carpeting, 9,000 original miles (2,500 since rebuilt engine), -speed manual, ight Hand Drive, revious ownership since 1984. VIN: V8/11271/RCAIts early history is relatively unknown. In 1984 it was offered for sale by R.S. Williams Limited, ondon, K and purchased, xported to the USA by its previous owner-collector and keeper for the past 30 years. I remember it being a regular at AMOC events during my younger years.In 1991, t was removed from the road for restoration. The rocker panels both inner and outer were removed, ower fender panels separated from the body, oor frames jigged, ew rocker panels installed, he chassis box sections Waxoiled for future rust protection and all fender panels were serviced and repaired to as new. All windows were removed, he body was chemically stripped, he aluminum treated, he bare aluminum was prepped and expoxy primed and finally painted in its current White color. At this time all brightwork was polished as needed and all chrome refinished professionally. The engine and gearbox were also removed at this time. The engine was completely rebuilt, ylinder heads refinished and carburetors overhauled. All restoration work was completed by its long term owner, well respected airplane engineer/mechanic. The interior, lthough older has always been treated properly and cared for with Connoly’s Hide Food leather conditioner. It has a lovely and honest original patina.Since restoration work has been completed, he V8 has been used sparingly and has accumulated only 2,000 miles. In the more recent past, t has been mostly stored. It will need various service/maintenance/recommissioning prior to be used and enjoyed because of a sincere lack of use. The front brake calipers will need to be looked after and the a/c compressor must be reinstalled and the system checked and recharged. Recently this V8 received the following servicing. New clutch kit, ebuilt clutch slave/master cylinders, arious brakelines replaced, ebuilt brake master cylinder and rear brake calipers.This is an opportunity to purchase an early V8 Coupe with 5-speed manual gearbox that has enjoyed long term ownership and care.
