1984 Aston Martin V8 Volante

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. 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 cars of this series 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. This stunning 1984 Aston Martin V8 Volante has had four owners from new, the last being the wife of the third owner who passed away in 1998. Only covering 57,000 miles from new it was fully maintained and serviced by Aston Martin specialists in London until the retirement of Ian Mason in 2008. From the extensive history file it can be seen that the car left the Aston Martin factory with a manual gearbox and at the request of the first owner was returned to the factory to have an automatic gearbox fitted. The second owner purchased the car in 1988 and continued to have the car serviced and maintained by marque specialists Richard Williams and Pugsley & Lewis Ltd. The Vendors husband bought A827ABD in 1992 when the car had covered 30,800 miles after a full inspection by Ian Mason who then serviced the V8 every year right up to his retirement. By this time the widow of the third owner had moved out of London and decided to have the Volante returned to its former glory and it was sent to a body specialist who removed any rusty components, including the rear chassis struts, and replaced them with new. The Aston was then painted with the same paint that it left the factory with British Racing Green. On completion of the bodywork the cylinder heads were removed from the engine and given a complete overhaul and was finally completed in September 2010. Since then over the last four years the car has only covered 1000 miles which included a super car run in aid of Children with Aids Charity raising over £5,500. This 1984 Aston Martin V8 Volante which is fitted with the Vantage air dam and grill is finished in British Racing Green, with a green mohair roof and tan leather interior is supplied with a V5C registration document, a current MoT test certificate which expires in October 2014 and an extensive history file containing invoices, old MoT test certificates and correspondence about the car. A rare, low mileage example of a much sort after Aston Martin which is a fast appreciating asset.
