Illinois. It was subsequently purchased by its second and most
recent owner in 1981 and relocated to Pennsylvania. It has remained

In early 2021, this V8 was purchased by Autosport Designs from its
long term owner. Sequentially and upon arrival it was treated to a
$30,000 plus service and maintenance, mainly due to lack of use
during recent years. Throughly serviced and sorted, it was sold to
a good client and friend of Autosport Designs. Having enjoyed 3,000
trouble free, enjoyable miles, this V8 has been a regular at Cars
and Coffee events in the Maryland area. Due to a change in the
clients collection and the fact there is still another sentimental
Aston within the collection, this superb V8 has come back to
market. Although we try, we just keep them all.

with excellent provenance. It is superb in every way and indeed
ready for immediate use and enjoyment!
