Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

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.

For more information regarding this spectacular survivor, please call Hal Clark at 951.440.0412 or email him at hal@classicpromenade.com.

Interesting Fact: The Aston Martin V8 was manufactured from 1969 to 1989 and is a rare grand tourer vehicle, of which only 4,021 were built. The production process occurred in Buckinghamshire, England and a process that was done entirely by hand.   When it comes to the goal for the Aston Martin V8, the company was looking to replace their DB6 model with something that matched more with the trends of the current times. Finally released in 1969, this Aston Martin used an engine from Tadek Marek which was a 5.3-liter V8. This model became the company’s flagship car for two decades and was known to go from 0 to 60 in around 7.1 seconds with a top speed of 150 miles per hour.   This impressive performance, along with the sleek and sexy look of the car, made it a favorite in the public eye. Notably, fictional action hero James Bond is notorious for driving an Aston Martin V8. The Aston Martin V8 is an absolute classic that survives the test of time and only seems to get more popular as the years go by!
