Announced in April 1972, the AM V8 is an extensively modified version of the DBS V8 which was announced in September 1969. Externally, the grill was entirely new, no longer sweeping across the complete front but now tailored between the head lamps reminiscent of the earlier six cylinder models such as the DB3S. The engine, was by then the well tried and tested all alloy V8 designed by Tadek Marek that had made it's first appearance in January 1967 at the Racing Car Show in London and raced by Lola in their Type 70 Mk III GT. The AM V8 series III was introduced in London, August 1973. The important mechanical difference was the replacement of the Bosch fuel injection system by four twin-choke down draught Weber carburettors, which produced a notably smother performance at low engine speeds with greater flexibility. To accommodate the carburettors, the bonnet bulge had to be deepened slightly and it was continued as a low bulge, to the trailing edge. Improvements were also made to water, oil and automatic transmission cooling and a new insulation material was used for the engine bulkhead and under the bonnet. There are detailed improvements inside the car, revised front seats; passenger's door locked, electrically, from driver's side; revised switches and heating controls: fuses below the glove compartment; larger ashtray; fuel tank redesigned to increase luggage space. The Autocar road test (September 6th 1973) of a car with automatic transmission, gave 0 to 60 m.p.h. in 6.2 seconds and a maximum 146 m.p.h. Summary:; The market for Aston Martin V8's is strengthening and this car offers an outstanding opportunity for any buyer. A low mileage validated by comprehensive record of service and maintenance builds real value into what is an appreciating and popular model of Aston Martin. Vehicle History; The original Service Voucher Book for this car notes that it was supplied to its first owner, A Pearson of Kenilworth by The Aston Martin Centre of Sutherland Avenue, Coventry. The delivery date is noted as 18th April 1975. The next significant date in the history file for the car is a receipt for 11,050 signed by Mr. Pearson, for the sale of the car to its second owner, The Walford Manufacturing Company of Birmingham represented by their Managing Director Peter Clasper. The car remained in Mr. Clasper's stewardship, transferring ownership from his company to his personal name in March 1990, until his recent and sad demise. The Executors of his will asked Byron International to sell the car on their behalf which we did in 2013. Acquired by the current owner following an engineer's report, the car has been fastidiously maintained since with diligent repair to the sills and around the off side chassis leg. The owner has also kept a personal log of mileages and weather conditions for all journeys under his stewardship.
