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. All this with space for four people. Demand for the car
was great with production reaching 402 examples within just two
years. 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 Oscar India cars 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. Just 352 Oscar
India models were built from 1978 through to 1985.

This is one of the first AM V8 Oscar India cars to be built being
registered in November 1978 and was probably ordered at the
introduction of the car at the Birmingham Motor Show a month
earlier. Originally painted blue. this AM V8 was subject to a
re-spray changing the colour to red in 1988. The previous owner. br/>who came from Reading in Berkshire. purchased the car in the early
2000's after the car had been laid up for a while. in 2005 he spent
£5. 00 on a major service plus having any bushes on the suspension
replaced as necessary. engine mounts and the brakes all gone
through and since then the car has had very little use. Finished in
red with beige leather interior this Oscar India is supplied with a
V5C registration document. an MoT test certificate which expires in
October 2013 and a file containing invoices and old MoT test
certificates going back to the 1980's. A perfect opportunity
to purchase a sensibly priced Aston Martin Oscar India.
