A copy of the original V5 registration document on file shows this Cornish Gold V8 Saloon was first registered on February 12th 1974 and delivered new to a gentleman from Ferndown, Dorset,who appears to have owned a local Estate Agency. In July 1976 (when the odometer recorded 24,600 miles) the V8 was sold by Aston Martin Sales on London's Sloane Street to the director of an engineering company in Croydon, Surrey. The gentleman was clearly fastidious with paperwork as he retained copies of the majority (if not all) of his maintenance invoices. For the first five years and 54,000 miles of his ownership he took the car to the authorised Aston Martin servicing agent in Greenwich, London SE10, and 1982 the owner moved north to work from another of the company's offices in Durham and had local specialists maintain the car for him. A year later he had a local restoration company carry out a light restoration and repaint of the body. It is unknown when the gentleman relinquished the car but we know due to invoices made out to his company that he owned it until at least the middle of 1985. Additionally, detailed in an undated invoice it is apparent he had the engine rebuilt by his localauthorised Aston Martin dealer in Houghton-le-Spring, presumably not long before selling the car. In early 1990 the V8 was held by a classic car dealer near Scarborough who could well have registered the car in his name, as an additional owner was added in the registration document between the former owner in Durham and the next owner who was an Aston Martin Owners Club member near York. An invoice in the file shows the dealer had the automatic gearbox overhauled just prior to sale and the recorded mileage at this time is believed to have been just over 100,000 miles. Regular maintenance was undertaken by the new owner and in 1992 they instructed a recognised Aston Martin specialist to carry out some body repairs which included replacing the sills and repainting the car. The grille was also modified at this time to accommodate some driving lights. After eighteen years of ownership the V8 was advertised for sale in early 2008 in the Spring Aston Martin Owners Club Newsletter. Noted on the privatesale invoice dated March 3rd 2008, the recorded mileage was 121,520 miles. The purchaser was someone from Richmond-upon-Thames, Surrey, and they soon had a local and recognised Aston Martin specialist carry out a large service and inspection on the car, during which some restoration work was carried out to the underside of the car. They clearly planned to use the car regularly as the car was prepared to a very thorough standard for optimum reliability, and after a couple of years of enthusiastic use the annual mileage reduced to just a few hundred miles a year. June 2014 saw the sixth and most recent owner acquire the car, when the odometer would have recorded just over 124,500 miles. At the time of their purchase they were living in Singapore for business so they stored the car with a professional car storage company in Sussex. Their enjoyment of the car was sadly limited and after a few years of ownership the car was exchanged at Aston Martin Works for a later Aston Martin. This is a lovely carthat presents very well in its rare and appealing original colour combination. Few cars have such a large history file that charts the interesting life of a car so clearly, and in addition to the many maintenance documents from both authorised Aston Martin dealers and recognised specialists, there are also many expired MOT certificates from as long ago as 1988. The car featured boldly on the cover of the September 2014 edition of Classic and Sportscar Magazine and a copy of the publication is also within the history file.
