I bought this car in August 2007 and drove it for about three years when the distributor gear stripped the drive inside the engine.  I had the V12 engine completely rebuilt. which was necessary to access that drive gear. and while the engine was out I deciding to have it painted and do a conversion to covered headlamps and use the Jaguar SI E-Type lamps just like Jay Leno did on his red V12 convertible.  The ignition has been upgraded to a more modern electronic ignition and the car now runs great. although the four Strombergs are cranky when starting cold.
The car is now painted the beautiful color of Aston Martin Mendip Blue after I saw the color on a DB9.  The grill is the original with the emblem removed and then painted and polished similar to that of the DB9.  The original grill emblem as well as any other original parts come with the car.  The interior is as I bought it and lets the car down the most.  There are tears here but a carpet kit is the largest need.  There are a few chips but not many. mostly from having to remove the very heavy bonnet between the car being at the paint shop and the reinstall and tuning of the engine.  One of the taillamp is missing the reflector and a new one should be sourced.
The car originally had air conditioning but it had been removed from the car.  The original air conditioning compressor comes in a box and I have reinstalled some of the controls back to the interior although the knobs were missing.
All of the spares and original parts come with the car. I have many boxes of parts as pictured.  Also comes with a three ring binder of receipts and measurements from the engine rebuild.

The car has the original engine. 7S3020SB.  Here are all the original numbers off the VIN plate which has never been removed and is still attached with the original rivets.

I had the carburetors tuned on a DynoJet. as you can see on the lower part of the graph that the needles have the mixture on a very flat and correct curve.

Here is a walk around and drive of the truck. at the end of the video I take it on the highway and show that it comfortably will drive 70 mph.
