Aston Martin V8 Saloon (1974).
Rare LHD version of this fastly appreciating classic Aston Martin
The Aston Martin V8 range is the next big thing in the classic car market. These cars are fastly appreciating these days, and with a reason, as it is a magnificent car to drive, with ample power from the famous Tadek Marek developed V8 engine. The V8 was built by hand in the Newport Pagnell factory for a period that spreads from 1973 until 1989, and was one of the most expensive cars money could buy at the time.
The one we have just received in our inventory is an early example from 1974. It has the pure lines from the pre-Oscar India cars, and is finished in one of the most beautiful colour combinations for the V8 range. The car was delivered new in England as a RHD car, The last Spanish owner had the car converted to LHD when he purchased the car in 2009. As LHD steering racks are not longer available, this must be one of the last converted cars. and is a unique selling point for this car on the Continent. It comes with a good history file, which states that it is a three owners car. There are many invoices in the file, and interesting documentation. It is a matching nrs, car, and still in its original colour combination but probably repainted once. As it is now 40 years old, it may benefit from a restoration. The engine runs with good oil pressure, everything works and is complete, but body and chassis have some corrosion in the usual places.
It is probably the cheapest V8 on the market, certainly in LHD guise, and while the value of this kind of car is going up in a rather fast way, it may still be the right time to buy a V8. There is some work to do on this example, but it is worthwhile now. A classic Aston Martin won't come much cheaper these days...
