HISTORY

Supplied new on 1st November 1979 by Aston Martin Sales Ltd to Mr J.Glassberg of Canford, 22 Selworthy Road, Birkdale, Southport, finished in Jubilee Silver coachwork with Light Blue/Grey hide and manual transmission

The Vantage was sold in 1980 to Mr Mead of ‘Abbott Mead Vickers’ who retained the car until 1983 by which time the car had covered 40,000 miles

The Vantage changed hands again in 1987 to Mr Peter Wragg who entrusted M.Fleming (Aston Marin V8 Ltd) to maintain it for him with mileage now at 52,088

In 1989 the Vantage was acquired by Mr Garry Branton who enjoyed the car until 1995 before it was sold to noted Aston Martin enthusiast Colin Lashmar who used the car extensively in AMOC concours events and Sprint Meetings

Mr Lashmar came 2nd in class at the AMOC concours in 1997, 3rd in Class at the Silverstone Concours 1998, 2nd in class and ‘Highly Commended’ at the Goodwood Concours 1999

Mr Lashmar clearly enjoyed spirited driving in the Vantage, competing in the Haynes Spring Classic Rally in 2000, Curborough Sprint meeting in 2001 where he achieved 2nd in class and in 2003 this very car was driven by James May and featured on BBC Top Gear in a piece entitled ‘Street Heroes’ (copy on file)

Maintained by Aston Martin specialists ‘Goodwood Green’ throughout the 1990s under the ownership of Mr Colin Lashmar with numerous service invoices showing the car was always properly maintained regardless of expense

Acquired by the vendor in 2016, a noted Aston Martin collector who entrusted marque exponents R.S.Williams to look after the Vantage and the most recent service work was completed by Aston Martin Works Service

In 2019 Aston Martin Works Service rebuilt the front brakes, overhauled the carburettors and the alternator plus various other jobs with a final bill for £9781.70 (held on file)

This ‘Oscar India’ factory Vantage is one of 44 examples produced, offered in superb order both cosmetically and mechanically, supplied with comprehensive service records, original build sheet, known ownership from new and very rare original colours
