1978 Aston Martin V8

5.3 Liter V8

Location: New York
Seller is Gullwing Motors

Price $89,500 US Dollars

Gullwing Motors is notorious for very vague descriptions. This car seems cheap but more questions need to be answered.   Seller states this car needs mechanical attention so to what extent would be my first question. It has an automatic transmission mated to a 5.3 Liter V8 Engine.  It is too bad its not a manual transmission.   This was Britain’s First Supercar with an impressive top speed of 170 mph back in 1978. Impressive! There was another model called the “Oscar India” named after the Oct 1st introduction date produced in late 1978.   The Oscar India model had an integrated tea-tray spoiler and smoother bonnet bulge which this particular car does not. The Oscar India also had a bump in horsepower from 375 hp to 390 hp.

From Seller:

This 1978 Aston Martin V8 is a highly desirable and collectible car. White with black interior and an automatic transmission. It runs and drives but has been sitting for the last 3 years and will need some mechanical attention at this point.
