This is a spectacular 1976 Aston (Series III) that has been a consistent award-winning survivor. Bought new in Newport Beach, Ca, this Aston has been considered one of the nicest original surviving examples extant. It has been owned and cared for by two AMOC members and professionally maintained since new.
This Aston Martin was made in November 1976 and was bought new by Mr. Charles McCandless from Newport Imports in Newport Beach, Ca. In 2002 this motorcar was sold to Hal Clark, our Managing Director.
By 2002, Mr. McCandless had accumulated approximately 25,000 miles on the Aston. Hal has since used it on numerous tours and has participated at numerous concours events. Most recently the motorcar was awarded first place in the Aston Martin class of the Los Angeles Concours D’Elegance in 2009.
As with most of the 967 Aston Martin V8’s produced between 1973 and 1978, this motorcar is well equipped in the finest of Connolly Leather and Wilton wool carpeting, full power including automatic transmission, power windows, four Weber carburetors, power steering and brakes.
All portions of the aluminum body, paint, interior and all mechanical components are original to the car with no modifications or restoration work. This is a concours level original motorcar.
The approximate 310 horsepower propelled the Aston Martin from 0-60 mph in under six seconds with a top speed of about 160 mph.
This example has been continually professionally serviced and runs and drives beautifully with excellent air conditioning. The Webers were recently professionally rebuilt and it has recently received a full tune-up and servicing.
