1987 Aston Martin V8 Volante, 7400 Miles, 2nd Owner for sale
Finished in Cumberland Grey with mushroom interior and black top. this left-hand drive. 5 speed manual transmission spent its first 25 years garaged in San Diego. The car was supplied new to British Auto service in Frederick Md. With only 245 Series V V8's built and to have so few miles and be so well sorted makes this car very desirable and would enhance any collection.
The 5. 4 Liter V8 with weber sequential fuel injection engine is in excellent condition and allows you to cruise at any speeds you feel comfortable at.
This is a 2 owner car; the original owner sold it to me in 2012 with only 5. 85 miles on it and now has approx. 7400 miles. I have had the car mechanically sorted plus added a few upgrades for a total investment of approx. $45. 00 over the last 2 years. The body and interior are all in excellent condition. There were some light scratches on the driver side door and front panel. a small dent on passenger lower panel and some small road rash on front so had the front of the car resprayed. The woodwork is all in excellent condition except for a small blister by the speedometer which you can see in the pictures.
The following work has been done on it. mostly by European Motors of S. D. . Aston Martin of N. E. . and Steel Wings. all authorized Aston dealers. The car drives and handles excellent and the 5 speed gives it great acceleration and definitely puts a smile on your face.
Brake work including replacing new bleeder cap
Change all fluids and clean gas tank
Calibrate the computer fuel injection system
Repair door locks
Replace exhaust mounts
Replace Engine Vacuum lines
Replaced (5) tires with correct Avon tires. The originals had great tread but suffered from dry rot.
Replaced convertible top fluid.
Replaced transmission with 5 speed manual (kept original automatic)
New “Quicksilver” Euro Stainless Steel exhaust system (kept original catalytic converters)
New Nardi wheel (kept original wheel)
Fabricate new center console wood to match existing woodwork
Rebuilt water pump
Installed aux vacuum pump for rear brake booster
The car comes with original service booklet. owner's handbook. previous-owner service bills along with all the service bills for the work I had done. Also accompanied with the 3 piece luggage set. tool kit. jack. and car cover.
The V8's are just beginning to be appreciated and this is reflected in their prices. There was a low mileage (5900 miles) that RM auctioned earlier this year for $214. 53. and Bonhams. also this year auctioned off one with 39150 miles for $175. 21.
