1ST REGISTERED  IN  FEBRUARY 1969 

THIS  DBS  HAS  HAD  JUST 4  FORMER  KEEPERS  

THE  LAST OWNER  HAVING  THE VEHICLE SOME  37 YEARS .

THE 1ST OWNER  PURCHASED  THE CAR NEW  AND SOLD  IT  TO  PHILIPPOS  CATERING  CO  IN THE SAME  CITY  AS  HIMSELF  IN 1977  

IN 1978  IT  WAS AQUIRED  BY A  WELL  KNOWN  DEALER  WHOM  REGISTERED  IT  IN  HIS OWN NAME  BEFORE  SELLING  TO THE FINAL OWNER  SO IN ESSANCE  3  FORMER  KEEPERS  NOT  4  .

IN JUNE  1978  AT C 77000  MILES  THE CAR WAS SUBSTANTUALLY  OVERHAULED BY HOLDERS  OF  CONGRESBURY LTD  INCLUDING A FULL ENGINE  AND GEARBOX  REBUILD  WITH INVOICES  FOR THIS WORK IN THE HISTORY FILE  WHEN ADVERTISED  FOR SALE IN  1978  IT WAS  DESCRIBED AS FOLLOWS  

PEARL OYSTER  WITH  BLUE HIDE  AUTOMATIC  CHROME  WIRE WHEELS  POWER  STEERING  SUNDYM  GLASS  74000  MILES  

THE LAST OWNER  USED  THE  CAR  VERY LIGHTLY OVER  THE NEXT 9  YEARS  COVERING JUST  3750  MILES  BEFORE  HE FELL  ILL  IN  1987  WHERE  IT WENT INTO STORAGE  AND  HAS  REMAINED  UNTILL  WE PURCHASED  

THE  CAR HAD NOT  BEEN STARTED  FOR 28  YEARS  WHEN WE  GOT  IT  .

ON ARRIVAL WITH OURSELVES  THE VEHICLE WENT TO A CLASSIC SPECIALIST WE  USE  AND THE REMIT WAS  FOR THEM TO VERY GENTLY  BRING THE CAR BACK TO LIFE  

WE  SPENT CONSIDERABLE SUMS  DOING THIS  WITH ALL  INVOICES  ON FILE  IN THE HISTORY FOLDER  

AND  SOME  3  MONTHS  LATER  IT WAS A  DELIGHT  TO  SEE  THE VEHICLE DRIVING AROUND  THE  ENCLOSED YARD  BEHIND OUR DEALERSHIP  AND  IT SOUNDED  FANTASTIC  GENTLE  AND  SYMPATHETIC  RECOMMISIONING  HAD BROUGHT THE  CAR BACK TO LIFE  AFTER  27 YEARS  OF  NOT  STARTING  .

THE  PROCESS  WAS  THEN TO  STRIP  THE VEHICLE  

ALL  METAL  WORK  WAS SENT AWAY  TO BE REFURBISHED  AND  IS  ALL  NOW AS  NEW  

THE INTERIOR  WHICH  WAS  IN  REMARKABLE  CONDITION  IS  THOROUGHLY  CLEANED  AND READY  TO  GO  BACK  IN  .

DURING  THE  STRIPPING PROCESS  A  FANTASTIC  PIECE  OF  BUILD  HISTORY  WAS  FOUND  .

NO  EXPENSE  HAS  BEEN  SPARED  ON THIS  VEHICLE  .  

THESE  ASTONS  ARE  WITHOUT  DOUBT  THE NEXT  BIG RISER  IN VALUE  AND  THERE  HAS BEEN  NUMEROUS PRESS  ARTICLES  ON THE  SUBJECT
