Description:

1973 Aston Martin AM V8
Reg. no. PKE 524L
Chassis no. V8/10650/RCA
Engine no. V/540/502
The Aston Martin V8 was the long-awaited model for a buying public that had demanded an eight-cylinder engine. A much bigger car than the DB6 was therefore designed in the late 1960s but when the engine wasn\'t ready, the DBS was born, powered by a six-cylinder engine. Two years later the V8 was ready and the DBS V8 was released. In 1973, now restyled, the model became simply the Aston Martin V8, and it was the company\'s mainstream car for nearly two decades. AM V8 cars, produced from May 1972 through to July 1973, used a similar engine to the DBS V8, albeit with Bosch fuel injection rather than the earlier carburettors. Just 288 Series 2 cars were built; although David Brown had left the company, he had overseen development of this model.
The AM V8, powered by a 5.3 litre engine, is the epitome of effortless classic motoring; PKE 524L we understand is a very original car with a recorded mileage of 45,900 which our vendor believes to be genuine; the car still retains the original eight track cassette player. He describes the car as being excellent throughout having carried out a number of improvements over the years including replacing the sills and the front brake calipers. Both servos have also been reconditioned. Finished in Balmoral Green complimented by tan leather, this excellent AM V8 is offered with a selection of bills and a V5c.
