1982 Aston Martin Martin V8 Volante LHD: Matching Number 2 Owner Car
According to copies of Aston Martin's factory build records, this V8 Volante was built during November of 1982. The car was equipped with a left-hand drive steering arrangement and a 3-speed automatic transmission, just as it appears today, and destined for the US market. The Volante was finished in Hereford Brown over a Natural interior with dark brown piping and a brown top. From June of 1990 the Aston was in the garage of Donald Silpe. Mr. Silpe would sparingly drive his Aston up and down A1A and the surrounding environs to the tune of about 1,000 miles a year. The previous owner acquired the car in April 2012 and has had the car sitting in storage ever since. It is not currently running as it has been sitting for the last 9 years. The V8 is increasingly being appreciated by collectors as an important cornerstone of the Aston Martin story in America. After mechanical recommissioning, this V8 would make a lovely cruiser once again.
