1973 Aston Martin V8 Saloon - Auto
Part Completed Restoration Project
This Matching Numbers Aston was the Car exhibited by Aston Martin in 1973 at the Earls Court Motor Show - Finished in Stardust Ascot Grey Metallic with Blue Leather and Black Carpets.
The Project was started in 2010 with new Sills and panel repairs undertaken to a high standard by Classic Astons. The Bodywork was prepared to a High Standard with excellent shut lines and great panel gaps and painted in a modern take of Ascot Grey - whilst beautiful we decided to return the car to the period shade before commencing the refit. The bodywork was reflatted using the existing ( finished coat ) as a guide to ensure the finished result was perfect. The car was removed from the bodyshop just prior to painting for a trial refit of window trims and glass and something which should have taken hours has now been work in progress for a number of years !.
With the recent expansion of our Service Facilities I have made the decision to sell off some of our projects "As Is" so we can gain some space.
This Aston will make an excellent example with the hard work ( tin work ) already done the car is ready for paint - The Engine was serviced before we purchased and starts and drives - the interior is present, all the carpets and leather trim etc
The Carpets are a bit tired but the Leather Upholstery is nicely patinated and could be reused with a little TLC if originality is your thing, the headlining will need replacing. The Bumpers have been rechromed nicely and are wrapped for storage, some parts have been blasted and powder coated ready for refit.
I like the pure and simple look of the early cars without spot lights and this example with the Carburettors and larger bonnet scoop will look headturning if returned to its factory spec.
We have ramp facilities if you would like to inspect the quality of works completed and we can assist with relocation if required.
