1978 Aston Martin V8 Series III S Specification - Full History For Sale

We are delighted to offer this outstanding low mileage, full history Aston Martin V8 Series III with its original later and desirable ‘S’ spec engine. The ‘S’ specification was announced in 1977 as a production line change with identification by a ‘S’ suffix on both the engine and chassis numbers. The revised specification known as ‘First Stage Vantage Engine Tune’ came with improved Valves, Camshafts, Carburettors, Vantage Exhaust System and Suspension improvements all of which delivered a quieter, faster and a more economical ultimate Series 3. Only 184 cars were made for the UK and therefore makes this in an incredibly desirable car.

WYS 356S was built on the 14th April 1978, supplied new by County Motor Garage (Johnstone) Ltd, registered in July 1978 making it one of the last Series 3's before the change in October of that year and has covered just 69000 miles from new. A copy of the original DVLA V55 document is within the detailed file which was used to first register the vehicle by supplying dealer. Copies of all registration documents from new are also in file. This fully matching numbers car also retains its original registration mark and service voucher booklet stamped up through the 1980's. Invoices from the 1980's to present day total in the region of £50,000 for maintenance, repairs and cosmetic upkeep. The impressive and comprehensive history file also includes MOT's back to 1987, a spare set of original keys, Heritage Certificate and original, unusual and very rare later ‘S' handbook. Prior to the last owner purchasing the Aston Martin in 2017, the car had one owner for 30 years.

This rare V8 is presented in exceptional condition having had a meticulous last owner with a keen eye for detail. The car was subject to major bodywork to include new sills and floor pans, and full strip down and complete re-paint in 2018/2019, all five wheels have been re-furbished, bumpers have recently been re-chromed, tyres have been replaced with very little mileage covered since and the car retains a beautiful Fawn leather interior with features to include an original Pioneer KP8300 Radio Cassette (original manual present), perfect dashboard and excellent steering wheel, dials, lovely high quality carpets, door cards and leather seats. The body and paintwork are pristine, and the car exterior is further enhanced by the Front Vantage Air Damn fitted which was an Aston Martin upgrade available after registration.

Mechanically WYS 356S is exceptional and has arrived with a highly detailed engine bay, suspension and underside. Uprated radiator fans are in place to assist with cooling and the highly polished and detailed stainless steel exhaust system is in excellent condition. The V8 handles superbly, the 69000 miles from new engine is super quick, responsive and holds correct oil pressure and the automatic transmission is super smooth. The car is fabulous on the road, a wonderful car for long distance touring and comfortable, relaxed cruising in luxury. WYS 356S is a highly desirable model, an ideal collectors piece that comes with true quality in every respect, superb paperwork and provenance, and further is a first class example to drive, enjoy and use for long distance touring.
