1 of only 551 ever made, we were entrusted to complete a major restoration of this classic Aston Martin, originally manufactured in Cape Town in 1958.
The clients brief was for an immaculate restoration to restore the car to its original condition, but also ensure the mechanical upgrades completed delivered a car that would perform solidly out on the road for years to come.
We commenced on what would be 15-month restoration program with no stone left unturned.
An extensive amount of work was undertaken, commencing with taking the car back to a bare metal shell. Uncovering the original shell revealed a mostly dry framework and just the need for minor repairs and some rectification of previously completed poor workmanship to the body.
Everything was immaculately realigned to precision before a full re-spray commenced, applying a classic Aston Martin Silver with all the body trims re-chromed.
Mechanical restoration work was next, with diligence on delivering a smooth ride for many more years of classic motoring. We completed full upgrades to the front and rear brakes, suspension and completed a top-end engine re-build, paying particular attention to overhauling the cylinder heads, ignition, exhaust and fuel system.
Inside the Aston Martin the owner wanted to keep the original worn patina of the black leather seats and trims, and this was enhanced with new rubber carpet headlining before we meticulously cleaned and treated the full trim and dash to restore its appearance to its former glory.
An immaculate car rolled out of the workshop, lovingly restored by our expert team.
