Known History

A copy of the original build sheet for the car notes its delivery to the first owner, M Jordan of Sutton Coldfield when it was Silver Birch with Red leather and carpets.

 

In 1981, the car was bought by a Michael Ledger of Leamington Spa who acquired the car through a contact who was the vehicle service manager for a Warwick based engineering company – the car had been the property of the company’s Managing Director. During his stewardship of the car, Mr Ledger had remedial work carried out on the seats and upholstery. He also had a reconditioned automatic gearbox fitted, the Webasto sliding sun roof fitted and some engine work involving the valves.

 

In a letter to Byron International, Mr Ledger remembers this work being carried out by Aston Martin specialists, Four Ashes, who then sold the car on Mr Ledger’s behalf informing him that the car was being shipped to the USA by the new owner.

 

The car was in fact purchased in 1984 by Howard Laramy of Apollo Beach in Florida, later of Natchitoches, Louisiana. In 2004, he described himself as having been the “curator” of this car since that time and this possibly reflects the way that the car was maintained in that period.

 

It was kept at all times in an air conditioned garage and covered a total of 5,000 miles in the 20 years. In 2002, it had a bare metal respray with 30 coats of primer, block sanded between coats then finished in Aston Martin Vanquish Grey. New leather, carpets, headlining and window seals completed the work in that year.

 

The car was the “poster car” for the 2005 Orlando Winter Park Concours and actually took 2nd place to a Red Zagato.

 

The car was repatriated in 2012 by an enthusiast/collector who instructed Aston Martin specialists Newland Motors to re-commission the car for the UK and to his own exacting standards.
