1978 Aston Martin V8"S" with original 5 speed ZF Manual transmission. Finished in Raven Black with contrasting red hide interior with Wilton carpet throughout. The Aston Martin V8 Series III was introduced in August 1973 with the discontinuance of the Bosche fuel injection system and the introduction of quadruple twin choke downdraft Weber carburettors. Other minor changes included modifications to the instruments using black surrounds and the heater controls were also modified. Towards the end of 1976, the "S" specification was introduced in what appears to have been a rolling production line upgrade and verification is by the letter "S" at the end of both engine and chassis numbers. The "S" stands for "Stage one tune" and whilst alterations may be subtle, they enhance an already good car.

This particular car was supplied new in 1978 by Robin Hamilton Ltd and has only changed hands seven times in the past 38 years. It comes with a chronologically detailed file containing records of servicing by Aston Service (Dorset) and other well known specialists and with details of chassis restoration and subsequent rust proofing. In recent times it has formed part of a small collection and is in fine condition throughout. Both paintwork and interior are of a high standard and the car is fitted with air conditioning. With the benifit of the Manual gearbox, it is a real motoring pleasure to drive
