What a wonderfully tough car the Aston Martin V8 Series 3 remains. This example was delivered new in the United States in 1976 and has been in the possession of the first owner for a long time. The car is beautifully documented with a lot of maintenance history and is in very original condition. The livery of the car can only be described as exceptionally beautiful, Green over Tan just works on every car but especially on British cars.
The body of the car is very original. The sheet metal fits nicely everywhere and is in good condition. The front of the Aston Martin is wonderfully tough thanks to the headlamps set far out at the corners of the body, aided in this case by the spotlights in the grille and the optional rectangular Hella fog lamps at the bottom of the front. The car is of course on the original wheels with good tires in the correct sizes. The view of the hood is dominated by a huge power bulge. This was installed because the Series 3, in contrast to its predecessor, again had four Weber 42 DCNF carburettors at its disposal instead of fuel injection. According to a test by Autocar from that time, the car did not slow down and was even slightly more economical. The car has already been repainted in its original color for cosmetic reasons. The work was carried out at a very high level at the time and the result is beautiful. The paint is in very good condition and has a beautiful shine.
The interior is also in very good condition. The seats are upholstered in beautiful dark brown upholstery. The leather is wonderfully supple and the seats are fantastic. The dashboard is neatly tidy and houses a number of counters that keep you informed of all vital data from that beautiful V8. The Aston Martin V8 offers a lot of space and is an absolute killer when it comes to covering great distances. The seating position is very good and the car is wonderfully comfortable. The headliner and controls are also in very good condition. The car also has things that make life on board just that little bit more pleasant, such as air conditioning.
The mechanical side of the car is well maintained. The car has been in the possession of the previous owner since 2005 and has been regularly serviced. The engine therefore runs well and the transmission shifts without jerking. The Aston Martin’s undercarriage is tuned for crossing continents rather than attacking a race track. The brakes can be dosed well and give the car more than sufficient deceleration. Should the opportunity present itself, the Aston Martin V8 is able to reach a top speed of 230 kilometers per hour thanks to the 5.7 liter V8 engine. Values that you still don’t have to be ashamed of today.
The car comes with a large folder of documentation with mainly bills and information from the time the car spent in the United States. In short, a beautiful Aston Martin V8 Series 3 to see but also a pleasure to drive. Pure British class in the ultimate livery.
