Aston Martin ‘garage find’ to tempt restorers at auction
Aston Martin fans will have the chance to buy a manual 1973 Aston Martin AM V8 ‘garage find’ at Classic Car Auctions’ September Sale.
The high-performance, eight-cylinder, classic Aston Martin is one of just 288 made. The car was entirely hand build and as a complete car, it is the perfect candidate for a full restoration.
Finished in red, the matching-numbers car features twin quartz headlights, a mesh grille and black leather interior, which accompanies the car in a number of boxes having been removed for restoration. The car is also accompanied by its original instruction book as well a history file which includes the car’s first ever MoT and documentation up until it was placed on SORN 12 years ago.
The Aston Martin has covered a total of 82,752 miles in its lifetime, and will be offered for sale at the auction with an estimate of £30,000 to £35,000.
“This is a superb example of a ‘garage find’ and a car like this can provide a great return on investment,” explains Gary Dunne, sales manager, CCA. “In any event, if you love restoring cars, a barn or garage find project can be extremely rewarding in itself, regardless of financial considerations. We expect a great deal of interest in this particular car on auction day.”
