1991 Aston Martin OtherI have owned this beautiful Virage about 5 years and have thoroughly enjoyed the car. My wife and I are downsizing now that the kids have moved away so I am having to sell this amazing car. Oh well, I guess all good things come to an end. Below I will try to describe as closely as possible the condition of the car.
Paint and Body: The paint and body are completely original and in beautiful condition. I would venture to say that the paint is just as shiny as it was when the car was brand new. There are only a couple of small imperfections in nondescript areas, but too small to show up on a photograph. The body is straight and original. The car has no rust. It is never driven in the rain. The car is always garaged and covered in the garage as well.
Interior: The Connolly leather interior of the car is in excellent condition. There are no rips or tears in the upholstery. When I bought the car the wood had 2 small cracks in the finish. I had all of the wood refinished by the famed Madera Concepts in Goleta, CA. It's all perfect now. I am very particular about cleanliness and condition.
Wheels and Tires: When the car was new, the original owner ordered a set of Oz wheels for the car. I notice that a lot of Virage owners opted for the lightweight Oz wheels. I really like them and I think they look a lot more attractive than the factory wheels. The wheels are in excellent condition. The tires have been on the car for quite a while as the car doesn't have a lot of miles on it, and I just drive the car around the block every couple of weeks and to the occasional car show. The tires have about 70% tread on them.
Drivetrain: The engine and transmission are working very well and the car is a pleasure to drive. The car has very low mileage so these major components haven't had much wear. The automatic transmission shifts perfectly and the car runs and drives smoothly. However, like most British cars from that era, it does drip some fluids upon my garage floor.
I think that's about it. It's regrettable that I have to let this lovely Aston go because aside from how much I have enjoyed the car, I'm sure it's just now beginning to appreciate in value. The Virage was the last of the hand made Aston Martins before Ford mechanized the production. Only 54 of these were gorgeous cars were imported to the US. I guess someone else will get to enjoy the rest of the ride.
Best wishes in bidding!
