1983 Aston Martin Other
In 1983 the world witnessed the premiers of the “A-Team”. James Bond’s “Octopussy” and President Regan’s “Star Wars” initiative. Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” hit #1. the Dow Jones broke 1. 00 and Hulk Hogan pinned The Iron Sheik. It was the year that “M*A*S*H” ended. Bjorn Borg retired and assembly on this Lagonda chasis #13278 was completed. If you’re reading this listing then you already know that these Aston Martin “wedges” are becoming increasingly hard to find. especially good ones. The reason? Originally priced as the world's second most expensive automobile the Lagonda has recently received quite a bit of attention through it's recent relaunch as the "Taraf" at a price reportedly in excess of £400. 00. http://www. bloomberg. com/news/2014-11-10/the-aston-martin-lagonda-the-unloved-vintage-car-you-should-invest-in-now-no-seriously-. htmlThe apex of opulence - the embodiment of the unconventional. This car is shouts “bold and adventurous”. I've created a video to help answer questions: https://youtu. be/CIwQ8HgEswc Regal interior appointments such as climate control located in the front and rear. scales of burled walnut line the door panels. solid-state digital instrumentation. Requiring about 2. 00 man-hours to hand-build by order a mere 645 of these William Towns’ unconventional origami-designed supercars were ever built and prevailing wisdom estimates only about half that number remain – assuring that you’ll be the only one on your block with one. This car performs and shifts very well and gets far more attention than any other exotic production car because it's basically the unicorn of the road and no one has seen one before. It's been posed with for more Facebook profiles than an ocean sunset and the few times that I've valeted it the driver has parked in front of the restaurant and two have actually refused to park it personally as there was fear that it might exceed their insurance liability limit. I like the idea of an investment that I can experience rather than track in the financials but I purchased this car to drive as evidenced by the relatively high miles for this car - which is what you want to see. Tires have great tread. Finished in Dover White - appears to be original. Supple red leather interior piped with white appears to be original but shows minimal wear. Interior red carpeting/white edging contrast really sets off the cabin!Low miles. Smoke free/accident free. Fixed moonroof with blinds. Exceptionally well-maintained. No revisions or missing parts. MSD ignition. Carburetors recently rebuilt and synchronized. New break master cylinder. New fuel pressure regulator/gaskets/lines. New water pump. Alternator recently rebuilt.

Complete wiring diagram. service manual and other goodies!Extra complete set of floor/trunk mats included. Good luck and bid with confidence. I'm happy to provide more pics or info as requested.
