Chassis 4231 is one of those 46 cars, evidenced by the matching chassis and engine numbers and was constructed by the factory with a ZF 5 speed manual gearbox, Radiomobile radio, twin seat belts and what was, by then, standard power steering.
We are grateful for the efforts of previous owners who have researched its history from its early times under the stewardship of Robin Hamilton, a leading proponent of Aston Martin and an active racer with a CV that included racing with Aston Martin at Le Mans both with a highly developed DBSV8 and the famous Nimrod Group C entrant.
The next owner was a Rupert Philips and it was great to recently reacquaint him with his old car he owned the car from1972 to 1976. He told us that he purchased the car from Robin Hamilton for £3,000 with money lent to him by his aunt! He added that he had a local Aston Martin specialist called Martin Allen in Taunton change the colour to Tudor Green Metallic, as used on the V8 model range, and also to change the Brico FI for Weber carburettors. He used to use the car for regular trips to Doncaster and back from his West Country home.
A copy of the last of the old log books shows that the car moved to Worthing with a John Dyer in 1976 moving with him to Arundel in 1978 before being acquired by William Baxter in Bournemouth in April of 1981, The DVLA records show the next recorded keeper was Paradise Garage who acquired the car as stock before selling it to a Patrick Embrick.
In 1988, records show that the car changed hands through the services of Aston specialist, Hyde Vale Garage to only its fourth private keeper, Mark Miller when the mileage was recorded as just 26,962.
The mileage recorded at the cars most recent MOT test in July 2019 was 28,274 and there is a letter on file from Mr Miller to the DVLA dated 26th November 2013 that the car had not been used on a highway since 1989, confirming a SORN status over a 24-year period.
In 1996, Alscot Garage in Warwickshire replaced the sills and outriggers (a critically important step for the whole range of Superleggera Astons), painted the car, and the quality of their work can be judged by the concours condition of the body and paintwork today.
The interior of the car is both pristine and, quite remarkably, original including the leather, carpets, headlining and even the drivers heel pad. The exterior appearance is stunning with exceptional panel fit, both doors close effortlessly and fit precisely in their apertures. This outstanding car is presented with an original and unmarked Owners Instruction Book, together with a full tool kit, jack and hammer, and comprehensive History File.
