Technical specifications, photos and description:
The six cylinder William Towns styled DBS had been around for a
couple of years anxiously awaiting the V8 engine that had been
especially designed for it. And in early 1970 the DBS V8 was
finally ready to become one of the fastest cars available at the
time. The 5. 3 litre Tadek Marek designed engine was able to develop
around 320bhp which gave the ability to reach 160 mph. From April
1972. the DBS V8 received a mild restyle and a new name. The 'DB'
was dropped as David Brown had sold the company and the car became
known simply as the 'Aston Martin V8'. The most visible change was
the adoption of two seven inch quartz iodine headlamps and black
mesh grill. the design of which was the work of the original
designer. William Towns. The 'Oscar India' specification was
introduced in October 1978 at the Birmingham International Motor
Show. Visually. the former scoop on the bonnet gave way to a closed
'power bulge'. while a spoiler was integrated into the tail. Most
cars of this series were equipped with a Chrysler 'Torqueflite'
3-speed automatic transmission. with wood trim fitted for the first
time since the DB2/4 of the 1950s.
This stunning 1984 Aston Martin V8 Volante has had four owners
from new. the last being the wife of the third owner who passed
away in 1998. Only covering 57. 00 miles from new it
was fully maintained and serviced by Aston Martin specialists in
London until the retirement of Ian Mason in 2008. From the
extensive history file it can be seen that the car left the Aston
Martin factory with a manual gearbox and at the request of the
first owner was returned to the factory to have an automatic
gearbox fitted. The second owner purchased the car in 1988 and
continued to have the car serviced and maintained by marque
specialists Richard Williams and Pugsley & Lewis Ltd. The
Vendors husband bought A827ABD in 1992 when the car had covered
30. 00 miles after a full inspection by Ian Mason who then serviced
the V8 every year right up to his retirement. By this time the
widow of the third owner had moved out of London and decided to
have the Volante returned to its former glory and it was sent to a
body specialist who removed any rusty components. including the
rear chassis struts. and replaced them with new. The Aston was then
painted with the same paint that it left the factory with British
Racing Green. On completion of the bodywork the cylinder heads were
removed from the engine and given a complete overhaul and was
finally completed in September 2010. Since then over the last four
years the car has only covered 1000 miles which included a super
car run in aid of Children with Aids Charity raising over £5. 00.
This 1984 Aston Martin V8 Volante which is fitted with the Vantage
air dam and grill is finished in British Racing Green. with a green
mohair roof and tan leather interior is supplied with a V5C
registration document. a current MoT test certificate which expires
in October 2014 and an extensive history file containing invoices. br/>old MoT test certificates and correspondence about the car. A rare. br/>low mileage example of a much sort after Aston Martin which is a
fast appreciating asset.
