Aston Martin's customers had been clamouring for an
eight-cylinder car for years. so Aston Martin designed a larger
two-door saloon for V8 applications. The engine was not ready. br/>however. so in 1967 the company released the DBS with the
straight-six Vantage engine from the DB6. Two years later. Tadek
Marek's V8 was ready. and Aston released the DBS V8. With the
demise of the straight-six Vantage in 1973. the DBS V8. now
restyled and called simply the Aston Martin V8. became the
company's mainstream car for nearly two decades. It was retired in
favour of the Virage in 1989. 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
Oscar India cars were equipped with a Chrysler 'Torqueflite'
three-speed automatic transmission. with wood trim fitted for the
first time since the DB2/4 of the 1950's. Just 352 Oscar India
models were built from 1978 through to 1985. The power of the now
de-smogged engines kept dropping on American market cars. down to a
low of 245hp in the early 80's.

This Aston Martin V8 has been well maintained and restored
during its 34 years on the road as proven by the full service
history in the original service book up to 41. 00 miles and then
continuing with a full history and documented servicing from main
and independent dealers. It has just had over £16. 00 spent on it
including new sills. jacking points. outriggers. 4 new Ronal wheels
and tyres. all chrome work re-chromed to the highest standard. new
Aston Martin bonnet badge. new rubber sills. replacement of coil
springs. antiroll bar link bushes. new window motors. new radiator. br/> electronic ignition updated. window chrome surrounds
replaced. new windows rear and front including rubbers. new
foam in arm rest and new door cards replaced. manifolds
replaced. air pumps alt belt. new oil cooler. new
Kenwood speakers and radio arial. new battery. rear and front
suspension overhaul. overhaul of braking system and exhaust system
and major bottom engine overhaul. In total. over £70. 00 of
receipted invoices for long term servicing and maintenance are
supplied within the history file which also contains the V5C
registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in
February 2014. A perfect opportunity to purchase a sensibly
