1977 Aston Martin Other

I'll start by saying the car is 100% complete. I purchased this Aston a couple years ago with the intent of restoring it. Other obligations are preventing me from completing it. I purchased it from the second owner who had it from 1985-2016. After using it as his daily driver, a reported fuel leak developed and he parked it in his driveway where it sat for the last 15 years. Rust had developed in the sills (rockers), jack points, outriggers, radius arm mount, and floorboards. I bought all the replacement parts from Classic Astons and Rikki Cann (cost was about 3K) and had the staff at Kevin Kay Restorations (Aston Martin Specialists) remove and replace as required. Cost of the rust repair around 18K and I have a detailed report/pictures I can provide with the sale. As seen in the pictures, the body is in exceptional condition. When I had it stripped, there was very little filler, if any and absolutely no corrosion. The glass is all very good with the exception of the windscreen. It has a two foot diagonal crack through the drivers view, however, I purchased a new windscreen (about $1800) and it will be included with the sale. Other than the engine turns over and has compression, it's condition is unknown. The previous owner stated it ran when parked, but I have not tried to start it. I only rebuilt the carbs and verified the engine was free.The interior is complete (less carpet), but the leather is showing it's age.All the exterior lights, emblems, and stainless trim are complete and in good condition.
Other parts not listed above:1. Harvey Bailey Engineering suspension kit (about $2500). Included new front shocks, front and rear sway bars, (4) new road springs. 2. New SU fuel pump3. Iridium spark plugs.4. Distributor cap5. Spark plug leads.6. Air filters7. Oil filters.8. Tires (4)
