1985 Aston Martin V8 Vantage 7 Litre
Finished to originally factory specification in Royal Cherry Red with a cream leather interior piped in dark red. The Aston has always been looked after extremely well, it has covered 44,000 miles and comes with a complete Aston Martin history from new. The two substantial history files and original handbooks and service books document the car from new to date with all records from the original bill of sale and guarantee through service invoices, all MOT certificates and ownership changes. The car was awarded several AMOC concours prizes in previous years as documented on file and by the badges mounted on the reverse of the glovebox lid.
The car presents in concours condition, probably better than new following a comprehensive restoration carried out in 2016, less than 500 miles ago by acknowledged Aston specialists R S Williams at a cost of ?155,000. The schedule of work is fully documented in correspondence, invoicing and photographs on file, suffice it to say every area of the car was minutely examined and the following works completed:
Complete body restoration involving strip, inspection, removal of any corrosion or faults in the metal followed by complete repaint in original colour
The original leather interior in great order was retained but expertly restored, the wood refinished, carpets replaced throughout and all trim treated or renewed. The instruments were rebuilt and upgraded with the RSW LED dash illumination conversion.
Full mechanical refurbishment of all components including engine rebuild to RSW 7.0 litre specification with RSW performance exhaust, RSW Brembo brake conversion, RSW handling kit, RSW gearbox selector upgrade and short throw option, differential rebuild to 3.06:1 ratio and RSW three spoke wood steering wheel and boss (the original wheel is with the car). All other aspects of the car and components were inspected and either overhauled or replaced.
Finished to the ultimate specification in a great colour combination and with low mileage and a complete history from new this must be one of the finest examples of its type in existence.
