|1973||Aston Martin||V8||71,680 (Not Warranted)||£44,000.00 + buyers premium|
In 1972, after the sale of Aston Martin to “Company Developments” a facelift version of the DBS V8 was put into production. Now known as the AMV8, the cars manufactured before August 1973 retained the Bosch mechanical fuel injection system.
The car will run although it did take some turning over of the engine probably due to ditry fuel etc, however we are selling the vehicle as a non runner. The vendor does state it will probably need some new plugs as it is running rich. The fuel tank was removed, cleaned and treated before we collected it. The brakes will also require attention.
Auctioneers notes: These AM V8’s retained the Bosch fuel injection and late modifications. From August 1973 they had 4 twin choke Weber carbs. These cars are quick, 310BHP and 0-60 in 5.7 seconds.
AMENDMENT : The vendor has since found some paperwork relating to the vehicle including MOTs as follows: 1984 52,994 miles, 1989 63,000 miles, 1990 66,598 miles, 1994 66,954 miles, 1996 68,3908 miles, 1998 70,628 miles, 2010 71,626 miles. Also a manual, spec sheet and a few invoices.
